cold air intake dry or oiled?

ordering an s&b intake and was wondering whats everyones thoughts on the filters? some say go dry because the oils from the filter can get sucked into the turbo and ive heard others say it doesnt matter that oil gets in there dry or not.

i know i dont have a 6.4 but i have an s&b intake.

both filters get dirty far to fast.

i usually just throw the dry filter on when i clean the oiled filter.

I have a AFE stage 2 on my 6.0, I have a dry and a oiled filter. I like the dry better because cleaning is easier, and you don't have to wait for dry time then oiling it and all, but I feel like you can not get the dry filter as clean as the oiled filter.......my .02 cents

It's kind of condition dependent and how often you clean your filters. I like dry filters and I clean often but Oil filters are probably better for my conditions during the summer so that is what I use due to the amount of dust from the dirt roads and lime rock they put on them
