AFE II Non PG7 Filter cleaning

Are these filters able to be cleaned like the K&Ns? I have a K&N filter recharge kit that i could use. I am not sure if AFE has their own, or if you can use the K&N kit. Does anyone know if you can use the K&N recharge kit on these? I imagine they are all the same. Or must you just buy a new filter because they are not able to be cleaned?

Re: AFE II Non PG7 Filter cleaning

Did you have the PG7 element or just the regular?

AFE says not to use K&N oil on their filters, but I don't know if it will really hurt anything if you do- the two oils they use can't be that different.

Re: AFE II Non PG7 Filter cleaning

i use the k&n air filter cleaner to help brake the oil down.then i rinse the filter with a garden hose.then put the filter in a bucket with simple green and water mixture let filter sit for an hour so in mixture.do a final rinse with fresh water from the garden hose.then air dry over night. lube the filter with k&n or afe air filter oil and let sit for 30 minute and re install.

I dont see how it would hurt it. AFE just wants you to buy their recharge kit I'm sure.

To the one guy with the elaborate cleaning procedure...

What in the hell do you do in the 24hrs you don't have a truck? Or do you buy two filters so that one can be cleaning while you're driving the other?

Re: AFE II Non PG7 Filter cleaning

Just give me a paper filter. Change in 30 seconds, take it out and tap it out every so often. Done. I have a lot better things to do than spending a lot of time cleaning filters.

Re: AFE II Non PG7 Filter cleaning

Unfortunately, some people don't have 3 cubic feet of room under their hood to dedicate toward a paper filter that will still flow 2000CFM without pulling a hanus vacuum.

I like paper. But there's just no room.

Oh, not to mention paper looks stupid. That's not supposed to matter, but it does.
