Any filter is fine if you have the stock airbox. If you have a CAI just run whatever filter came with it.

Is that person an engineer? I'm not either but I have used bbk's products before and I don't think it would be like them to manufacture cheap and crappy products.

I've only found one slight problem with bbk's stuff and even then the product worked, it was just the long-tube headers I ordered from them need the primary's polished inside for the rough edges that were present.

2 big issues I had with the bbk cai...

1 was that the mating surface of the cai where you bolt the maf was warped but I just used some rtv and made a gasket.

2 is that the tube where the logo is riveted too is way too narrow compared to other kits or even the rest of the piping of the bbk kit.

Some bbk stuff is OK, some is not. Their exhaust is good for the most part but myself and others have had issues with other parts they make. Don't even get me started on the bbk intake manifold...

The only thing that's BBk on my car is my equal length headers , which I had to get different gaskets and longer header bolts

Well getting back to the OQ, I have your typical fenderwell CAI but I have a 90 degree adaptor inside the fenderwell I want to get a 8-10in filter for a 4in pipe

I have used MAC headers for years and never once had a problem with them. Most recently CeraMac longtubes. Seems once they get heated up the exhaust flows nice. Dumping through a set of magnaflows sounds even nicer. Use copper gaskets and u will never have a leak as long as you torque properly.

Also MAC CAI fender well kit is nice. What I used twice now. But wouldn't mind getting a power pipe from AFM.

Well to the original question I just replaced mine the other day and I purchased an aem filter it is one of the dry flow ones. Is it bad that it doesn't need to be oiled first? Overall it looked like a good filter.

No. Not bad. I assume its not reusable is it? I use washables for the simple reason I can clean it anytime I want. Auto parts store closed and u notice the filter is dirty? Go to the shelf and get the wash and recharge kit and it has all night to dry. 5 mins to oil it up and 5 min install next morning. I keep a extra filter on hand oiled up and stored in the bag. Quick change.

AEM is totally re-usable. No oil involved which is better IMO although I've never had an issue with the K&Ns either.
