Anyone have the AFE non oiled filter?

I just bought a drop in non-oiled AFE filter for my 2012. I have already had to replace the stock paper filter twice due to it being so dusty where I live and they keep getting filthy, so I had to get a re-usable filter. I heard that the AFE was the best choice as far as aftermarket filters because its non oiled and still flows just as well as stock. Just wondering if any of you guys can attest to this also?

Just ordered one for my '12 V6 yesterday. Should have it in a few days. Did it affect the sound at all since it flows better?

No, not really but I have no sound tube. It might sound different in that case. I figure it will pay for itself over time not having to buy more paper filters.

Any difference in throttle response?

Not really. I can not tell. I haven't been looking for it either though.

Pretty easy to see that the AFE is the right choice lol. Excuse the dirty engine bay, it's been raining for days here.

This is stock paper filter at about 8k miles or 10 months. Dirty as heck.. I know. Here's the AFE after about three weeks, but just compare the two.

Yes they are awesome IMO. For $60 bucks too. Car comes with a CAI already but the paper filters suck if you have to replace them all the time. This is a no brainer IMO.

Hmm interesting. where did you get it from? There is so much construction going on in northern va that the dust and debris is insane here as well. I might look into this filter.

Off E-Bay from Summit Racing. I can't really say for sure, but it almost sounds like my Magnaflow Streets are a little deeper and louder.

Yeah I think it had the same affect for me. I'm running no resonators+roush ab's. I picked mine up for $61 with free shipping.

Mustang people must be a different breed. I don't know, I have never been disrespectful or rude to anyone out here in any of my posts, but it seems like most of what I try to contribute is a joke to others. I have been driving muscle cars for over 30 years. I've never been without at least one. I have seen some questions asked out here or comments made that should have been Auto 101, but I just let it go. I thought we were all here to help one another and enjoy our common interests together. I guess I should probably just enjoy and drive my Mustang, but leave interactions to the F-Body crowd.

First rule of thumb is to grow a thick skin on the internet. Second thing is when you say something so outlandish expect things like being laughed at to happen. And FYI I hardly would consider a six banger a muscle car. Sorry you were offended.

When talking about muscle cars, I am talking about the V8's I have owned over the years and still have a couple of, not my V6 Mustang...and if you read my post back, I never said for sure it was louder and deeper, just seemed like it might have been.

I'm talking about the placebo effect. When you do a mod that may or may not do anything really, but you swear something is different. In my opinion, I think there was a difference. You can laugh, make a joke, or post funny pictures all you want but there's no point. Go buy the filter first and then come back and say I'm wrong.

+1 - I'm a noob. I know very little about cars, but I'm learning and I'm very excited about it. I HATE it when I ask a question or make a comment and people make fun of me. I admit I don't know much about cars and people still give me s***. I realized i had to grow a thick skin, which I'm still working on. Nice filter, by the way!
