Dry or Oiled filter>That is the question?

i am going to be putting in an intake on my 02 and should i use a dry filter or an oiled one? I have been told that k&n are of the devil and will allow dirt through. I have been told that dry ones do the same as well. What should i go with.

AFE2 is a great system but pricy if your on a budget, ford ais pleases the stock minded crowd and folks who want heavy duty filtering, s&b seems like a good well rounded choice as far as price and performance. or you could diy your own system with a tymar aka napa 6637 filter.

The AFE is great but the price is a killer i spent 425 shipped. But the install was easy. I think an S&B is around 375. Never heard a bad thing about them. My roommate and i did his DIY got a filter from the local Peterbelt Dealer for 9.95 and found a piece of 4 inch tubing had the clamps and took 30 mins. But do stay away from the K&N!
