Should I get a dry or oiled S&B Cold Air Intake

Looking at getting the S&B Cold Air Intake, should I get a disposable dry filter or an oiled filter? What would be better or advantages and disadvantages over one another? Thanks!

I don't see how you can beat the dry ones.

Oiled. Unless you want to spend $40 on a new filter when it is dirty?

I sell lots of intakes, I'll be doing S&B Oiled and recommend most people do who are going to do their own maintenance do the same. Just don't over oil and follow the instructions! It is not a 20 minute filter clean, it is a light mist and let dry outside of air box for the most part of the afternoon and people just spray and soak the filter then install immediately and wonder why parts crap out right after they fire it up the first time. They also filter a smidgen better as well.

I use an oiled S&B filter. For the little better filtration it is better for me since I spend alot of time on dirt roads. I have 2 filters so that when I want to service my filter I have one ready to put in the truck right away and let the other one dry until the next service.
