Dry-Flo filter for CAI

I intend to install an Airaid CAI, but I don't want to use the oiled type filter because of the potential for the oil to foul the MAS.
Where can I buy the Dry-Flo type ?

You can get "Dry" replacements from AEM, or AFE Filters.....What Model Year Stang are you Speaking of?....I ask because all of the Newer MAF's (Cartridge Style) are No where near as susceptible to Light Oil Contamination, or are as Delicate as the "Older" (Pre 2005-MY) Hot-Wire MAF's were Gene.....

The Oiled Filter that comes with that "Airaid" CAI Setup is just fine
If you are Really that concerned, Check with Airaid to see if they offer a Dry filter with your setup....But just to let you know, I have been running Oiled K&N Filters in my last 8 Stangs without issue...

each airaid intake for the mustang comes in 3 configuration with different air filters. You just have to order the part number you want. They have the red oiled filter option, a red non-oiled filter, and a blue filter (can't remember if it is oiled or not). The oiled is the cheapest, and it is what I ordered for my car.

This is what I got on my car: Airaid 450-304 Intake System - Performance Parts

This is the same intake with a non-oiled red filter: Airaid 451-304 Intake System - Performance Parts

Same one with non-oiled blue filter: Airaid 453-304 Intake System - Performance Parts

If you look at the part numbers from Airaid a 450- part number is an oiled red filter, a 451 is a non-oiled red, and a 453 is a non-oiled blue

The above links are for the "Race" versions of the intakes (requires a tune), you can get the same ones that have an insert that does not require a tune. I think the numbers on those are 450-172, 451-172, 453-172.

If you get the dimensions on the filter size you can order one from summit or jegs. They're honestly about the same price almost anywhere you look, Summit makes it nice to look that sort of thing up because you can specify every dimension.

I ordered an AFE synthetic media filter for my C&L Racer. I don't like oiled gauze filters, they let in a LOT of fine dust.

But I thought the purpose of the oil was to trap the fine stuff that would normally pass thru the orifices in the gauze ?

If that's what it's supposed to do, then it doesn't do it very well! Cotton gauze filters still end up with pretty big holes in them even when they're oiled.

I've had two different vehicles that I had oiled cotton gauze filters on, and BOTH had a layer of fine dust on the inside of the intake tube when I took it off to clean the filter.

Cotton filters are designed to be less restrictive and increase air flow not to filter better. The are going to let more particles through which is why they use oil to help compensate and trap fine dust particles that would normally be caught in a paper filter.

If you use a cotton filter you should expect to clean your throttle body and MAF once in awhile. It's a trade off for a more efficient intake system.

If your anal about filtering, paper filters are always going to be more effective.
