Did you get a oiled or dry filter?

I'm gonna get a Rotofab cai. For those of you that have an intake did you get an oiled or dry and why?

Oiled filters are superior in every way; filtration, air flow, and longevity. Fear of the oil harming your MAF sensor is really the only argument for a dry filter and that is not a very good one. That sort of thing is typically a user error that can be avoided by simply following the instructions.

I personally got the Injen CAI with a dry filter because I didn't want to mess with washing, drying and re-oiling a filter. All I have to do is vacuum or blow it out with a low pressure air nozzle. If it is that dirty I will order another Amzoil dry filter for it.

Dry. Like the technology behind the Donaldson Powercore dry filter.
Catch more dirt... More airflow. ... smaller contaminants than oiled filters. Sold with Volant cai kits but you can add the filter to any cai.

If you don't coat it in oil and follow the directions like chase said, you will be fine. Much better investment. Not sure how long they usually last but I know k&n has 100k mile warranty on their filters so I'm sure other brands are roughly the same.

Oiled. Cheaper, better filtration/airflow. Not concerned about over-oiling.
