S&B intake question

Happy 4th fellow PSNers!

I purchased a S&B intake about 25K miles ago and opted for the dry filter.
I am about to order a replacement, and I wanted to get your opinion on the dry filter vs oiled. My biggest concern is dust. i live off a lime rock road.
your input would be much appreciated.

Annnnnnnnnnnd go.......

Re: S&B intake question

Cant say much about the dry but ive had my wet one and it works great here on the farm (dirt roads). I soak it with spraynine let sit for 15 min - wash it out - let dry at least 1hr - then oil it. So it does take some time unlike blowing out a dry. But never any dust or build up in the intake pipe.

Re: S&B intake question

I have no experience with the dry filter, but have oiled S&B's in both my 7.3's. I am very happy with them. They can be a pain to clean like Hyrk said, you have to wait for them to dry. I usually leave them overnight to dry and still end up using a hair dryer to get out the moisture. I'm thinking of getting an extra element to have ready for when I do a filter change. Other than that, they perform well and sound great too!

Re: S&B intake question

If your filter is closed a oil one is great. If your filter is open the oiled ones get dirty really quick. And when you clean them they only work once or twice after. I'm thinking of switching to dry..... And this is just my experience, I might go down dirt roads a lot more. I go to my ranch a lot and my family owns a construction company.

Re: S&B intake question

Dry only elements for me. Oiling and fooling around trying to get a nice even coat of oil is a pain and messy. I also think the oiled filters get dirtier quicker. Dry elemnts are fast simple and work!

Re: S&B intake question

I have both oiled and dry filters. The oil filter is just as good as the dry. The reason I use both filters is because when re oiling my filter i let it sit for about 24 hours. In that time I put the dry filter back on. S&B is not like K&N with the dusting issues. Their oiled filters will filter very well if the oil is allowed to wick properly.

If you had bothered to actually test the performance of an aftermarket filter, you would not say people are full of it. SOTP doesn't mean a thing. I've checked some by using a g-meter and actually dynoing my truck. Have you?
