    Hey guys I am purchasing an afe si stage 2 intake that comes with both the pro dry S as well as the Pro 5r and I am wondering which filter I should use, I understand that the pro 5r uses oil, is this correct? and how hard would it be to maintain it, cleaning and oiling?

    go for the pro dry s. its non oiled and that means no chance of screwing up your MAf

    ok thanks, what does maf stand for and is this what others were talking about how they had a check engine light on or something like that from oiling too much?

    and the check engine light comes on if you put too much oil in the filter and it clogs up the maf. therefore, your engine thinks somethings wrong so it throws a code.

    to be honest i dont know about the TRD intke. however, if you are considering an intake, i highly recommend that you look into these guys. http://www.urdusa.com

    they have a true cold air intake that is way better than anything else out there. and it is a dry filter, so you cant screw up the maf sensor.

    yeah I looked into this one but I wasnt a fan of how it is very susceptible to moisture and mud, i do offroad and I dont want to ruin my engine a true cold air intake apparently takes air from outside the engine bay, which the trd and the afe si both do so I think I will be happy with it, plus it is in a closed box so its fairly safe from moisture. I just wanted to know if the trd used a dry filter cause if it does I would have got it for the looks over the afe.
