how often to clean TRD high flow drop in?

i'm thinking of getting the TRD drop in high air flow filter to get rid of that crappy stock filter. I read thats its re-usable and washable like the K&N filters, but i'm wondering how often should it be cleaned. I don't see anything anywhere on that topic? Clean as needed?

And if anyone has this air filter drop your 2 cents on it too! I just want a better filter than stock and don't want to spend the money on an intake.

AFE pro dry is around 60.00 and reusable for the life of the part. I know your thread is about a TRD but I believe the general consensus around here is the Afe is the way to go.

The stock filter isn't all that bad.. You have a much less chance of having a problem with the stock filter. My wifes Subaru had trouble with the K&N (CEL came on after 1,000 miles). I decided to go back to the paper filter for her car.

With that said, I have a K&N due to the fact that I will keep this truck a very long time and it will pay for itself in the long run. I have never had any trouble with a K&N in my current Tacoma or my 1st gen, so I am a believer in them for the Tacoma.

I usually clean mine at least every 6 months (which is 3,000 miles for me). Sometimes it needs it more than others. If you take it out, you can tell if it is starting to get dirty.

EDIT: Oops, I read again and saw you were asking about the TRD.. oh well, here is some info on a K&N
