    So my buddy gave me a K&N filter a couple months back and I was happy..until I had to clean and buy oil for it :mad:

    After reading about CAIs I decided I'm just gonna buy a drop in pro dry and save some cash. I've been looking online and been seeing them for around $70-75 and I thought I saw some people who found some better prices...anybody know of a cheaper deal?

    Is there a benefit to the Pro Dry S vs. the Pro 5 R? :notsure:

    5R says 5 layers of cotten media and is washable

    Pro Dry S says 2 layers of media and is also washable

    Same price, seems the 5 R would clean better but the Dry S would allow better flow?

    Pro Dry S is just like it says...Dry. Pro 5 R needs to be oiled.

    Ah... I missed the 'oiled OE replacement performance filter' part :eek:

    Seems like the 5R would be more similar to a K&N and have the same potential issues of buggering up the MAF sensor?

    Morning! I'm getting close to just saying F-it and going with the full Stage 2 Si. I've already got a TRD filter, but it's getting old and I'm sure could use replacing.

    It's not, but there seems to be more issues with the K&N's out of the box. Personally, I've run K&N's on past trucks and never had an issue with them but I figure if people are having problems, I'll go with another brand.

    Do you know if the TRD filter is oiled? From what I can tell, I think it is :notsure:

    Interesting... I might just clean up TRD and keep it.
