Drop in Air Filter

Back in the day K&N had the best drop in air filter, I've used one on both my hemi dodge rams. I'm looking to buy one for the sexy 300S v6 but now there are a crap load of different vendors who make drop ins.

I will ask the cummunity two questions.

- Dry vs Wet (believe a K&N is Wet) ?
- What is the Best (in your opinion) drop in air filter ?

Thanks!

Go with either the AFE or the K&N. To avoid oiling up your air sensor, go with a dry element filter.

I have the AFE Stage 1 CAI on my Ram with the dry filter. Love it!

Ran K&Ns in the other SRTs since their first scheduled filter change, no issues. Zero issues with oiling the sensor on either. Just picked up the K&N for the SRT8 today, and will lube it up this afternoon!

I got a CAI by K&N and then got an amsoil filter. I understand it is not direct drop in, just giving you another idea.

I went K&N, because of the readily available rechargin kits (oil and cleaner) that can be had at every autopart store and Walmart, plus all my other vehicles run K&N in them as well so I have a standardized system.

P.S. If you decide to get a drop-in, I would highly reccomend getting two (2) so that when it comes time to clean/recharge it you have one ready to go and dont' get tempted to put a filter in that hasn't had enough time to dry. "One is none nad two is one" philisophy.

Or you change the OEM early and keep it as a spare.

Noticeable difference with the K&N for sure. Butt dyno says there's a lot more uuumph right in the meat of the power band. My stock filter also had a tear in the rubber seal, but it does not look like it compromised the airbox seal.
