After having to replace my MAF due to K&N oil and the dreaded CEL, I started looking for oil-free solutions.

Check out the AFE Pro Dry S line of replacement filters.

Anyone have any experience with these?

Thanks!


PS. I did not re-oil the K&N filter...The CEL came on before I even had the opportunity to put enough miles on it to necessitate a cleaning.

Recognizing that you have the intake and I am only referring to the replacement filter, do you feel that you have gains in performance (HP, fuel economy, torque)?

When I first put it on I did notice some of the bottom end go out. But it was like the intake took away some of the low and and put it on the top end :lol:

I did see a significant drop in MPG at the beginning but that was because I couln't keep my foot out of it :lol:

later I did see a 1-2MPG increase then I got the exhaust and then the tune...now I have seen all the way up to 26MPG with a Crew-Cab I5 with 20" wheels :D

I suppose, but with something like this its hard to tell.

I've always used the K&N and never had a problem. When new I let it set in a warm place for a few days just in case they should happened to over oiled it at the factory. And when re-oiling not get crazy. Use the spray and spray lightly.

Running AEM Brute Force for about 2 years....no CEL's.

It is important though, when changing to an aftermarket intake, that you disconnect the negative terminal on your battery during installation.

This gives the PCM the opportunity to recognize the differences in the larger amounts of air that is passing over the MAF sensor after you've completed the installation and have reconnected the battery!

Yeah i have not had a CEL yet with an oiled filter, i did disconnect my batt. while installing the CAI and doint the cat. deletion at the same time.

Ill post here if i throw a code.

However, in the past i have had problems with muffed up MAFs from oiled filters but they were the old style MAFs on the LT1 and mid 90's vortec motors.

This isn't a dry filter, but I've been running a TrueFlow oiled foam filter since I bought the truck. Just recently tore apart the intake to do the plugs and no oil residue at all in the intake tract.
