running at the track (intake question)

My truck is deleted with a 4" flo pro downpipe back system. H&S tuner set 250 tune. I have yet to invest in an aftermarket intake. I still use the stock intake/filter. I dont run hard on the street, mostly for economy so its not an issue.

I plan on taking my truck to the track with the stock intake in place. I want to remove the filter just for a few 1/4 mile runs. Has anyone done this before? I dont forsee an issue, but wanted to verify.

Thanks

Just find an aFe Stage 2, I've seen a few used ones on here for $125 or so. I wouldn't wanna risk running without a filter.

Well drag racers do it all the time, and its just for a 1/4 mile. The risk is very slim, and im willing to chance it.

I would like to upgrade intakes but i have read that none of the aftermarket intakes filter dirt better than the oem filter. My truck is a daily and i use it as a truck more often than i use it as a racer. Its exposed to dusty enviroments every day. Thats the main reason i have not upgraded to a performance intake.

You are worried about maximum filtration, yet you are asking about completely removing the filter for a few runs?

Seriously though, go with an AFE Stage II PG7 intake kit and you will have all the protection and flow that you need. If the stock intake is better, its not by much. At that point, you are splitting hairs, the difference isnt going to matter.

I'm concerned about filtration on the dusty nasty jobsite lol. I'm not worried about filtration at the track that isn't dusty or dirty. The filtration of aftermarket intakes is definitely below the stock donaldson filter which can hold up to 3 lbs of dirt before needing a replacement.

I have nothing against the afe filter, in fact if my truck was a street truck (not used for work) then I would have invested in one long ago.
Thanks for the advice, but if anyone can answer my question without suggesting an aftermarket intake I would appreciate it.

I just did a few runs on the street. I removed the filter cover but left the filter in place, and it worked fine. So im going to do that
