Just curious.....

Also, have you snapped any pictures of your endeavours thus far?

Iam an auto tech at a dealership. Used to work for dodge, chevy, and now toyota. Started out Modding as a hobby
Didnt realize scoop would kick off. Used to do tuning for chevys with my friend over the weekends. Yes i do have pics, but from what craig has told. I need to hold on to pics until product is finalized and ready to be viewed.

Correct.

I won't touch a dry filter, as Ram725 correctly pointed out.

My opinion on the oiled/dry debate is earlier in this thread or HERE is a shortcut.

Good luck.

Ya you've convinced me to give oiled a shot and see what I think. I am going to run one when this one needs changing just to see if I like it better

Make sure you voice your opinion on the boards, after you've had a chance to analyze it in comparison to the dry filter.

Cheers.

Oh no worries about me voicing my opinion. It is an opinion correct

I have been voicing my hatred towards Oiled for awhile now.

ONLY and ONLY because of this thread am I going to try oiled. And I will honestly let you guys know my thoughts. But your opinion encouraged me to give oiled one last shot

I was just talking to Auto Anything and they have stopped selling the S&B line of intakes. They couldn't tell me why.
