Drop in Air Filter

I'm looking for a recomend on a dry drop-in air filter to replace the stock one.

I've seen a few here that use the oil variety, but doesn't that run the risk of clogging the MAF sensor.

i think most on here would agree in the AFE dry filter...so oil, so no chance in the clogging

yeah,the afe dry filter is probably the most popular here. the oiled filters arent that bad though.....just clean them on a normal basis,and dont over oil them.......and the maf will be good to go.

I would definitely go AFE dry foam, but I didn't find one for my truck until after I had ordered an oil-gauze one.

The oil-gauze filters can leave oil deposits on you MAF sensor, but it is easily cleaned. Still - go with a dry filter.

^You need to know what size piping you have where the filter attaches, most likely 3", but that will tell you what cone filter you need. BTW, you can also go with the AEM Dryflow. I used it on my Altima and was pleased with it. There is no Dryflow for the drop-in crowd (like me) as of yet.

maybe the dryflow is the one i was thinking about. i'll measure the opening later. i do think it is 3 inches though. i lile my airaid filter, but cleaning it, drying it, the oiling it/reoiling it gets kinda old sometimes. i think the dryflow would be a good timesaver.
