    Have had my SRT 392 since June in checking into repl. A Filter to stay with dry element due to oiled ones can affect certain sensors. Would like some feedback.
    Thanks

    The 392 does not use a MAF sensor so in theory if you wanted to used an oiled on for a little added performance you will be fine.

    The oiled/dry and sensor debate really only applies to the Hellcat's that use the MAF.

    I have a K&N drop-in on my 2015, and also ran one on my 2012 392. Decent seat of the pants gain, and 1-2 mpg improvement. from my experience. Non MAF cars are fine with oiled filters.

    So ive been using the BWoody with oiled filter, and don't seem to have any problems with the MAF so far, how are oiled filters detrimental to MAF equipped cars?

    The oil from the filter ends up depositing itself on the MAF sensor and causes it to fail or not operate properly. Bunch of other high performance cars (such as GT500) also recommend against oiled filters for the same reasons. Speed density and other non-mass air flow sensors are supposedly not affected.

    solo7777 recommend you (correctly) clean your MAF from time...time. I do. I use CRC MAF sensor cleaner but there are other products too. Spray all the venturi passages don't use just any product. I do it every 500 miles or so.
