I dont know, my previous SS drop in filter is almost clean all the time, even after 10K Km.

 

At the most wash with mama lemon to remove the surface dust.

 

K&N requires some maintenance to remove old and recoat fresh red oil. Some how, can see the dirt after 5-10K km.

 

 

Sorry, make you more confused.

My 8 yrs++ Camry is using K&N drop in filter from new,no power increase,but need to clean every 20,000 Km...my 370z just fitted an HKS R-suction system[open pod],power is noticeable much better,but costs $1750.00.

SS Hurricane air filter from Avante after 50k.

 

The air pressure sucking upwards towards the air intake permanently warped the filter, letting all kinds of dirt passed through via the sides. The centre ridge also has crack lines 2 mm wide.

Hurricane SS filter doesn't keep the dust from entering engine, as many drivers testify that the filter is as clean as new after driving for so long. Where have the dust gone to? Into the engine lor

 

K&N is still the better choice. Yes it traps the dust. U can see the dust. Yes it's troublesome to clean. But it's a happy problem, coz it proves that the filter is working in keeping the dust from engine

 

K&N has been around for ages. Proven for so long.

 

Power? It's subjective la. But it definitely reduce the low end torque and it's better in high end torque, compared to stock paper filter. It's my butt.

Bro, IMHO, stay stock. At most settle for k&n. Ss filter doesn't filter well. Hold filter above head n b4 ceiling light u will know how big pores are... Then compare w k&n n ur orig paper. My prev ride ken a cel occasionally after some time for usin ss filter.

By now you would have gotten the meaning that ss =stainless steel.

 

Its always a hard decision to make between better filtration for long term engine protection against better trottle response.

 

I am using stock air filter these few years.

 

Read that oiled sponge air filter is even better. But its not available for everyday cars.
