    K&N Oil here. No gains that I can tell, but, like others point out, I can use it until the end of time. That, I like.

    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    I run Fram. I did use a K and N filter, but honestly those let in more dirt. I know because the throttle body would get a hell of a lot dirtier as a result. I quit using them after having to clean the throttle body 4 times in a year.

    There is no option for none!

    I live in dusty conditions Im going to buy the AFE Dry. The Oil coated filters clog and suck in after a few days.

    The following AutoAnything order item(s) have/has shipped:

    Just ordered mine. Even with out any performance gains I figure Ill save money in the long run by not having to buy another filter.

    Currently have a K&N drop-in after owning the truck for less than two days. I'm looking at either the URD CAI or TRD (AFE) intake sometime down the road pending my ability to convince the fiance' it's worth it.

    AFE and autoanything say "not available for 2009" for the Pro-Dry S.
    What gives? Other 09's say they have it.

    I'm using the TRD filter that came with the CAI. I've used all kinds of filters before and I do know this, more flow=less filtration in most cases.

    Coming from another forum and reading and researching about air filters, I've found that Apexi filters are one of the best. Too bad they don't make one to fit the TRD's 4" inlet.
