Banks Ram Air

Hey Guys,
When I bought my truck it already had a Banks Ram Air intake installed. After reading numerous threads about the oiled type filter Banks uses I was wondering if anyone knows of a dry filter replacement that would be a perfect fit into the banks intake.

Or would I be better off locating a used factory unit and replacing it.

I would just keep it in there. As long as you don't over-oil the filter it will be fine. Also, go pick up a can of CRC Mass Air Flow Sensor Cleaner and every other month or so, pop out the Mass Air Flow Sensor and spray it clean... just for good measure.

I agree, you'll be fine. Nothing wrong with oiled filters as long as you don't soak them, and then immediately go for a WOT drive.
