I dont recomend the oiled element, I would recomend you an open dry filter, buy one from TYMAR or DIY.

I ran a Baldwin PA2818 (I think that was the #) and switched to the AMSOIL tapered, dry, cleanable filter because it doesn't get squeezed beteen the hood, battery, fuse box and fender well. I think I get more air now.

I've been using the AFE stage II for some time and have no complaints.
