one has a dry filter and one has an oiled filter. I originally bought the one with the oiled filter but have since switched to dry. I didn't like cleaning and oiling the filter. Never felt like i put the right amount on so I ordered a dry filter and don't think about it anymore.

Thank you. That is what i figured but just didnt want to screw it up. Now if you could tell me how the EGR Delete stuff works and whether it is necessary then I will be all set.

not necessary but recommended, I ran mine for a while with the EGR in place but when I had a bunch of work done I deleted them. If you have the money for it definitely do it.

My only concern is I will want to make it as simple as possible to return it to stock for warranty work if ever needed. I have 2010 with 18,000 miles so there is quite a bit of warranty left...However, if I have to see "Cleaning Exhaust Filter" one more time I may scream.

well deleting the EGR is a job so you may just want to leave them alone until your warranty is up.

Oiled vs. Dry is all personal preference since they both filter/flow almost the exact same. The dry filter will need to be replaced eventually, where the oiled can be cleaned and re-oiled. Some like to clean filters, others just want to replace it. You can always switch later if youd like as the filter elements are available separately. Hope this helps.
