From what I,ve been told you want to stay with a dry filter. If the oil filter is over oiled it could cause turbo problems.

Like mudn_1 said run a dry filter and if you are worried about small particulate then run a pre-filter over it and you will be good to go :thumbsup. I am running the AFE Stage II Pro-Dry and it is an awesome filter :woot:.

if you go with an oil filter...like the AFE PG7 i have, use an aerosol type oil and lightly mist it. as long as your not drowning the filter in oil, you wont have problems. its not that difficult..............

Shoot... I'm still running my first BHAF and got 60K miles on it now and the filter minder has moved yet... No need to clean, no need to oil, etc... Just works! :popcorn:



I got to admit the outerwears extends the life of any filter alot! :w:

I think that I decided to go with a BHAF w/ outerwear pre-filter and my dad is making a heat sheild out of 16 gauge metal. I am then going to prime it and paint it with CASE construction engine black to help disapate the heat. Thanks for all the posts and for your input

Hey guys how often do we have to change out the oiled filters? I heard we have to clean and reoil at 20-30k. But these things have to get worn over time right?

Also, cleaning and re-oiling "reusable" filters create holes. I know some will debate this but it is only time (say 3 cleanings) till the pin holes start showing up and letting in dirt. The holes develop from a multitude of factors, the cleaning agent, larger particles of dirt dislodging from where they got sucked it, too much water pressure when rinsing the filter, etc.
