    There seems to be a lot of interest on the new AFE CAI. I thought it would be good to see what type of filter you would prefer.

    So place your vote maybe this will expidite bringing this to market!

    Don't run an oiled filter on these cars. The oil will get sucked up and foul the MAF sensor. Run a quality dry filter.

    Manufacturer claims otherwise...


    I'm interested in both, dry to start....then move to oiled if there are no MAF issues.

    I would go with quality dry. something that I can toss out and replace. I have enough K& N types that are a pain in the rear end to clean and re oil

    Manufacturer of what? The filter...or the car? The engineers that designed this car chose a dry filter...for a reason. The salesmen that want to sell air filters are of course going to say it's fine. They want to sell filters. You could always put a filter sock on it if you lived in an extremely dusty or harsh environment. The engine will suck oil out of an oiled filter, especially from this engine that moves a mountain of air. Your entire cold air side will eventually become covered in oil, including the MAF. When the MAF gets covered in oil, it can't properly meter the amount of air going into the engine. When it thinks there is less air coming into the engine than there actually is, you run the risk of running lean. Running lean can burn holes in pistons. Just sayin'....

    Read the other thread... aFe stated otherwise.

    Over oiling the filter can lead to fouling the MAF, but I've never experienced it before.

    It's what I've used on the 300, no issues - 111k miles. I use a dry element on the Viper and Jeep.

    As I stated, I'd use a dry filter due to the boosted motor and close proximity to the MAF initially.

    Seems to me that they are going to have a tough time producing better air flow than the stock. It's really a good setup. A few more CMF for a couple hundred bucks is not worth my time I'll put that to a new tire.

    I don't care what AFE states. On forced induction motors that use a MAF, oilled filters are a bad idea.

    Yeah I seeing the posts here I gotta agree with you - rather be safe than sorry and definitely don't wanna be an experiment hellcat to see if oiled filter is good and safe for the long haul term.
