I spray it down again and I fill up a bucket of water and submerge the whole filter and just move it around in the water. Let it air dry only, overnight..thats why you kept your stock filter to use while its drying :-) a lil perk for keeping your oem intake..Oiling? follow the directions. GL

I agree with autobred.... for oiling, just spray a light coat (single layer) on each side.

First off thanks for all of the advice! I have K&N on my Harley and always seem to over oil it. My fear is that I will over oil it and screw up the Mass Air Flow Sensor. I am the guy that over tightens, over greases and such. I cant find the AFE as easily as K&N's.

that reminds me when I walked up on my neighbor one time and he was spraying that thing down like he was spray painting I read sometimes how people go thru charger kits like nothing ..personally I mist it to get the color, but recommend following directions. MAF sensor is very very important, some cars MAF are even closer to the filter than others. I always keep a can handy and clean the air filter and sensor every other oil change..10k. Its quick and gives me the piece of mind. Almost goes hand and hand when you run oiled filters..

There is no MAF sensor on a RAM.

MAP, yes, MAF, no.

Regardless, over-oiling can still be an issue.

I had a K&N drop in filter originally in my Ram . Didn't notice one bit of difference in performance or mileage . Then I installed a FIPK kit and could feel the difference . If your gonna stick with the stock air cleaner , stick with a stock replacement paper filter .

Wow thats crazy. I just dropped in a K&N high flow filter in my stock air box and definitely noticed a difference. I mean its not a crazy difference, but its there. For starters, the sound coming from the engine sound better and louder and i can actually hear the (stock)exhaust now, which sounds pretty good. My wife even noticed this. I also noticed a little bit of HP difference. Not as noticeable as the sound, but i could feel it in the peddle for sure. I just put it in yesterday afternoon, so im not sure about and MPG changes. Im guessing that will probably not even be noticeable. Anyways i just thought i'd share my story about it. Im really glad i got it. I thought it would be a gamble and i wouldn't notice anything, but i was wrong. It will never take the place of a CAI, but its a little something for a few bucks when compared to the price and time of a CAI.

Ive bought a dozen or so of them the past 20 years and its been hit or miss on the seat of the pants (butt dyno) feel. More or less on the cars under 3300lbs I personally could feel the difference, but a few ponies on a 5000lb+ truck I couldnt tell but you know it all adds up....just enjoyed spending the $50 for a mod Besides they are a lifetime and always took them out before selling or trading in a vehicle and used them for hand me downs or trade a buddy for a garage part :-) "say you still got that finned derby cover for that softail right??

I noticed that same difference. just put the drop in K&N as well. Just wanted to mention that the 2010 stock air box already has a decent CAI setup on it. This is why I went the drop in route.
