    what are the drawbacks of using an oiled filter? Is it just the mess?

    Oiled filters leave residue on hot wire maf sensors degrading everything until cleaned which can be difficult. As a result of one bad event i wont use them again.

    Have you ever bought a green filter, Hellcat 1 and a few others have them. they don't have hardly any oil on them. Also Arrington Performance out of Virginia works almost exclusively on Hemis and the last cold air intake I got from them on my last car a 2014 392 Core challenger came with a green filter. I guess what I'm saying if Arrington ships there cold air intakes with Green filters they can't be bad.
    I use to get K&N in the past and you would pull them out of the plastic and you could feel oil all over not the Green filter my car runs fine. I think Rob M has one and Hellcat 1 there may be others.

    The green ones sound pretty good, though at this point for me is the horsepower gained worth the potential hot wire residue-even with routine cleanings (and potential filtration issues).

    Remember the MAF hotwire measures how much air is coming in as to make adjustment to supply fuel (though I don't know if WOT is a closed loop) and also wonder if it can (over time) put a residue on the SC blades, coating them and attracting debris to them. Or debris that slips past striking rotating blades at a bazillion rpms?

    I just can't say it is worth the risk to me-even if minor because the effect could be subtle. On my LS1 I didn't notice it until the thing was really bad and caused a cough and rough idle at acceleration.

    This is my first forced induction, and I do know they can be a little more sensitive to fueling-or lack there-of. In the past, a filter was the first thing I added to my cars. Just not today.

    As always, YMMV (your mileage may vary).

    WOT can NEVER be closed loop, nor is startup/warmup. Closed loop is when the system is attempting to get the car as close to the stoichiometric 14.7 AFR as possible. Basically light constant throttle with a reasonable (don't have details here) amount of load on the engine

    Is there something wrong with the O.E.M. filter that is supplied by dodge? I have always believed that oem was the best quality available genuine mopar parts on my car only!!
