no oil high flow filters

I read about it on here before I think. I did a search but couldn't come up with what I was looking for.
I think it was this brand of filter I was interested in getting. Anyone run one of these or something similar?

Don't know anyone who has one.

IMO a K&N that's properly oiled and have a outerwears pre-filter is a very good setup. I've rebuilt motors and never once saw long term problems with dirt when done this way. And if they are oiled properly there is no problem with the MAF either.

I'm the same way. I think one or two problems has exaggerated things.

I have stayed with oil filters. I may spray the maf with electronic cleaner every second oil change. I never had a problem when I didn't, but the e-fears have me in that rythm now.

I'm in agreement. I've had my K&N for over 6yrs now and never had a problem. You just have to make sure you do not over oil.

ams oil has something but i dont know how good it is.

I have the pre-filter and K&N cone filter I would rather run it when wheeling than some paper filter. Oil filters block water and such much better than the paper which will just fall apart when it gets wet.

Thanks guys, the biggest problem I have ever run into is some owner over oiling. All we have to do is "Follow the directions".
I have K&Ns on both trucks and both motorcycles. Never had a problem.

The biggest problem is not the equipment but the owners.
