I can tell the difference and not in a good way...its not AWFUL but I feel like oiling it made it noticeably less free flowing and doesn't growl as much as before. Also the oil doesn't wick up the filter medium as well as the instructions make it seem to.
No I didn't oil it, are you suppose too? How long did it take to get that dirty? If mine does that, I might switch to a non oiled. Alot of another intakes have a housing around the filter, I'm sure slowing down how fast the filter gets dirty.
