    afe pro dry or k&n. k&n doesn't filter as well till it's dirtier, but you get some more airflow and minor hp and mpg. afe does the same thing but I think it does everything a bit better.

    All filters filter better when they're a little dirtier.

    For best filtration, stock.

    AFE Pro Dry is what I use. A little better airflow & still good filtration according to my UOAs. Plus, I only have to buy one and then clean it every few thousand miles. Saves me quite a bit of money in the long run.
