Quick question. How often should I change the filter and when I change it is there a particular kind that I should get? The only reason I ask is because I brought the car into the dealer for 15,000 mile service and when I took the CAI off it was dirty. Not terribly, but getting there. Thanks in advance.

Change it??? You mean clean it, right?? Get a K&N cleaning/reoiling kit from Autozone. Every 15-20k seems to be pretty good unless you're in a really dusty area.

This is why I ask these questions haha. So these things never need to be changed just cleaned?

That's the general idea. I would recommend you pick up a spare 4" x 9" cone filter so you don't have to worry about downtime when you clean it.

the upside to having a dry filter is that you don't need to worry about over oiling or under oiling your filter.

The filter JLT uses is made by S&B filters. You can buy a cleaning/reoiling kit from their website (S&B Filters) for $15. The nice thing about their kit is you measure out the required amount of oil for your filter to avoid over oiling. You can also get the oil in blue if you want another option than red.

Are those dryflow filters universal. That is, does the same size fit JLT, K and N, C and L, etc?
