In 12 years you would have bought between 8 and 12 $15 filters.

Did it really save you any money?

Yeah, but you can get 5 or 6 uses out of them. Probably more. Don't know yet, only used mine once so far.

If the gunk gets past the MAF and down deep it might take longer....and it still puts off readings and can make the vehicle throw codes. And you still have to take things off to clean it. If you don't think right away that it's the MAF then you'd have to bring it in to get the number if you don't have a reader. Just seems to be more hassle than benefit.

Then it might not be a good idea to suggest it.

I honestly don't see what's wrong with a Toyota filter, the one that was designed best for the vehicle.

Some people do get over zealous with this, true.

Sir, I assure you it's the finest paper air filter material that can be had IN THAILAND, lol........... IMO the oem snorkel in the fender well and the oem filter box setup do plenty to keep moisture out with or without the charcoal maxi pad as long as the opening in the fender well is above water line...the K&N with the gap between the hood and fender right where the filter sits and at hwy speed in the rain, not so much maybe. Even with the prefilter on the K&N cone.

Any non paper filter has larger openings to allow for more air flow. Oiled or not, these larger openings allow more dirt to pass through. Paper filters the best and is not as restrictive as everyone thinks. You might get .02 horsepower buy switching to a K&N or AFE filter. Totally worth the $50 to 70.

^^^^Not fighting, just facts. Everyone thinks an aftermarket filter is so awesome and it gives 45789475643987235769 horsepower and 20 mpgs.

Who are "they"? The aftermarket ones have their place....not in dusty muddy environments and not left neglected as long as you can paper. My car has had a K&N all it's life. It is a pavement machine and it gets driven mostly in an urban are with large expanses of cement and grassy lawns. The oil stays as clean and nice as the truck with oem filter and intake and it is prerunner so same driving environment. If I had 4wd and/or lived in rural environment or desert where there would be much more dust/dirt around, I would stay stock with paper filter. Just like everything else, it has it's place and one thing doesn't fit every need. Track vehicles no runny z papuh eh? Keeping things in perspective is never detrimental..............

Define "performs"???

If you are talking about airflow, yes, the oiled cotton gauze (K&N) will outperform the paper filter.

If you are talking about filtering ability, no, the paper filter will outperform the oiled cotton gauze (K&N).

If you are talking about $$/year for an air filter, the oiled cotton gauze (K&N) will outperform the paper filter,,, but only after 5 years or so.

Filtering vs. Flow vs. $$$,,, it's a trade-off, you don't get 'em all.
