Just ordered a replacement air filter for a 2020 REWB, wanted a second so I didn't have to wait for one to dry after cleaning. Do they come pre-oiled?

According to this guy's video, I'm assuming it is oiled as he installed it right out of the box:


But, if in doubt, just check it when it shows up. You should be able to tell by the touch.

If it's red ,it's oiled. I just cleaned a filter and it's white til you put oil which is red,back on it.
you are incorrect. I have a ‘19 Hellcat and a ‘22 Redeye sitting in my garage right now. Both have the red filter. Both are NON-OILED!

Ok, how do you know there not oiled. Are you saying that the filter media is naturally red?
The oil has nothing to do with color. It is used to trap particulate matter as opposed to a dry filter which does so with a denser filter media. Telling the difference between the two is obvious by sight - one is dry and the other is covered in a thick layer of oil. The Hellcat and Redeye factory filters are dry. Look it up if you don’t believe me.

If you go into the search on this Forum you will see that the Demon filter is definitely oiled. As far as the redeye filter, there is no definitive answer on this forum. You may or maynot be correct. If you did look it up,I'd like to see the link.

Ok, so is it or isn't it??? I guess when I take the old one off I'll clean it to see if any oil comes out before installing the new one. If it's oiled I'll oil the old and store it in plastic till it's time for another swap.

The filter media after cleaning on my 2019 is white. The oil is what makes it red.
The filter media is also red in color

Yep, new filter came today. It's definitely oiled, not so much you see an oily shine. As a matter of fact looking at it in the bag it came in it doesn't look oiled, it looks dry. But when I took it out of the bag and felt the pleats they were 100% oiled.
