Stock Intake Air Filter?

How often do you guy change it on your 4 cylinder trucks?
What other maintenance you guys suggest I do? I have about 60k and only have done the oil changes every 4500. I know I gotta flush and replace the tranny fluid soon.

I clean out my AFE filter every 15,000 or so.

With the stock filter, I'd just change it when I could see it was starting to get dirty? Seems like once or twice a year was more than enough.

U should prolly change ur oil more often now. The K&N let's much more crap through and it'll show in an oil analysis. U just traded one pita change for another.

Frequent cleaning like the other K&N guy makes it easy to overoil and swamp ur MAF with the filter oil.

After stepping aside from the hype and looking at the big picture I have noticed things bout K&N.

Owned 2, went through MAFs on both vehicles.....

Can't have max flow, and max filtering and K&N def doesn't filter as well.....

K&N state that a small amount of dirt on the filter "helps" it filter better.....

They make false claims about dyno results, and have been shown to lose hp on our trucks.....

Really, ur filter needs to be dirty to filter better?
Went from 17 mpg to 22 mpg and I have a noticable hp gain.
You would be fine if you put the right amount of oil on the filter instead of dipping it in a 5 gallon bucket of oil.

An Air filter isnt going to give a significant gain in HP. The difference between an OEM filter, and NO filter in the air box is about 2 hp.

Enough of a difference to not have to shift on hills. No lugging on hills in 5th where I used to have to shift to 4th. I know 5th is just overdrive but it works without problems up long hills. I also did the deck plate mod a while ago and just recently switched from stock filter to k&n but there was still a noticable difference in mpg and hp since the switch.

The gain was from the deck plate mod.
