So now I need patience to spend more money, buy an extra cleaning kit, wash, rinse, dry, re-oil a filter? What a fucking joke.

I have 5 kids and a house that needs repairs. It's not patience, it's I don't have time or money to waste on pointless things. Why spend more time and money needlessly on an air filter when the same time and money can go to my kids?

has anyone ever had their MAF go out on them, and if so, who told them it was??? could it have just been that the dealer was wanting to get you to buy a new one. just asking alot of questions before i choose one

I'm just a neat freak that has a little time on my hands and a lot of loyalty with K&N. Don't blame me

Besides, I strongly disbelieve that there are any other filters out there that can give the same standard of high performance without being cleaned or replaced often. And if you are going to replace it often, you're just wasting money. Just clean it and re-use.

If you do have a high performance one that doesnt need to be cleaned.. either you spent wayy too much on it to make any of this worth it or it actually does need cleaning and you don't realize it but it's slowly eating away your performance/mpg as it fills up with dirt.

The AFE is a washable filter. I never said it doesn't need to be cleaned unlike the K&N saying 1million miles before needing to be cleaned. At least that's what it said on the one we put on my mom's Rav4. She now runs an AFE.

Anyway, just wash, rinse, dry the AFE. No need to wash, rinse, dry, oil, wipe off excess oil, dry off before putting back in.

Ah. so that's what it is. I read through the papers before installing it for her and thought it was odd that it didn't need to be cleaned for that long. Papers didn't really explain it clear enough. Made it seem it didn't need to be cleaned that often, which is kinda deceiving. Especially when people say it filters better when dirty...

Hmmm....5 kids, you've got enough for a pit crew. Just assign filter cleaning as a monthly chore and you can kick back with a cold one while the youngens do their best to make their pops proud...LOL Obviously, payment for services rendered will be something like one gigantic icecream cone.

Unfortunately that is the only usefull thing that I have to add to this thread. But while I'm here...does anybody have the TRD intake?

HA! Oops! Only 3 kids.... must seem like 5! Still, with enough crap to fix around the house (doors, windows, roof, furnace, water heater, leaky basement) anything that saves me time servicing the vehicles is a plus.
