You can get a microfiber filter now for intakes like that. Amsoil makes one. I'm using it on my 3.0 (well, I'm using the flat one not the cone) and it's EXCELLENT. No oil required and it can be cleaned and reused.

Microfiber is some wonderful stuff.

If you're looking for increased air intake I prefer to no oiling method myself...which is why I bought it.

You know I was making fun of my slow truck right?

Anyways I have been giving permission (married remember?) to begin modding since I can't decide on a new vehicle (gas prices+insurance=Mo mods or food)

So I am ordering the MAC tonight or by this weekend depending on pricing. Also need a few other things but that will be a new post, hint thanks to my partner and friend Zach I want a custom paint job so if anyone wants to begin photoshopping for me go for it.

you should have checked out SSD (street smart design). i'm also looking into air intakes, and i'm pretty much thinking SSD or MAC. i'll keep looking into it, but i might not start modding again until january when i get a job again.
