The turbo will suck the oil out of the filter first and apply a nice coat of oil all over the fins. Then the filter is no longer capable of filtering and begins to dust your motor.
Every truck I have ever seen with an oiled filter has a mixture of oil and dirt all the way down the intake tube and stuck to the turbo.
x2 K&N designed their filters to be oiled, while some may disagree I'd never put an oiled filter on something that's turbocharged. Like someone stated earlier that oil gets pulled through the filter and where does it go?... I only use dry filters, when it gets dirty just toss it and buy a new one. Not as cost friendly as a cleanable/cotton filter but to me it's a better piece of mind.
