Cold air intake

I realize the stock unit has exceptional filtration and is the best option in my case. But for cost effectiveness I'd like to use a cleanable filter since I drive in very dusty climates and filter change is quite regular. (atleast once it warms up) I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for
A new intake set up or if just a new filter is best.

I know that I am the lone dissenter on this issue, but I tested an Airaid on the dyno and it delivered the claimed gains below the peak ( quicker spooling) Airaid has a 5 layer part cotton par synthetic filter element, and I have 100k on one, no problems.

IMO, since you drive in such dusty climates, I would be more in favor of the best filtration (stock filter). I know that they are expensive but, would you rather buy $80 filters or a new engine? Just my .02.

X2 on the stock filter it's all about the cost of a motor when it comes to dirt. It's your money your motor but i would spend it on other things that count when it come to the health of your motor.
