What happens when the first filter I listed has 1000 Cubic inches of filtering surface, but filter #2 has 100 cubic inches of filtering surface area?
Remember, not everything is "obvious" or what it may appear. You must keep an open mind and if need be, prove the so-called obvious.

I have a MAC CAI on my 2000 Ford Explorer XLT 5.0, since I bought it new. I have 252,000 miles on my Explorer. I've never had a problem with using an oiled filter.

There is no correct answer due to Mother Nature and human habits.
