Problems/Negatives if Over-Oiled AFE filter?
Other than wasting filter oil, is there a downside to over-oiling an AFE filter? I've got a Stage II and just cleaned it for the first time, but think I probably over-oiled it. I didn't understand the proper oiling procedure so, instead than spraying one wide band around the top and letting it soak down, I lightly sprayed all of the pleats. When I put the filter cover over it, I noticed a few spots on the cover from exess oil. Dumb mistake, I know, but we live and learn.
So my main concern now is any downsides, like increased restriction or a decrease in filtering ability. I'm guessing any excess oil will just get sucked through it. Is there anything I need to be worried about, take it off to clean and properly re-oil it, or should I just let it be and chock it up to a lesson learned?
