^FYI..none of the filters clean that good. after 40k miles check out the dirt in your throttle body and compare it to some one that is running a OEM filter....

i think i might give a foam filter a whirl see if it makes a difference i mean i can always just wash and reuse the injen one or get a replacement...


oem filters are you talking about the stock intake system? with them paper filters?

the paper one gets dirty quick because it is blocking the dirt from entering the intake....while the aftermarket ones are letting it in.
ill try to find a comparison of the 2.
here is a start:
