Reminds me of a conversation I had with my ex when I bought a 442 W30:

Her: It looks nice, but it doesn't have anything on it.
Me: What do you mean? It has rallye wheels, bucket seats, console, wood steering wheel, vinyl top, and power steering.
Her: Yeah, but it doesn't have any goodies.
Me: Sure it does. It's got a 455, 4-speed, and 3.91 posi. What else do you need?

I made a CAI for my Avenger with similar routing using Spectre stuff, but I used piping to route the filter to the bottom of the car instead of the hose. The more I think about it the more I want to modfity my CAI and go the hose route to keep my filter out of the water and dirt.

Why no oiled filter? Just concerned that it doesn't do as good of a job as a dry filter?

If you read the specs on K&N's website, you'll see that their filters do not filter as well. No wonder they can advertise more flow. I'll give up some flow for cleaner air. Plus, they're a hassle. And I had an engine builder tell me one time to never use a K&N filter. He spent 10 minutes bashing them. Also, a friend of mine is a top-notch mechanic, and he advises not to use oiled filters. To each his own, but that's too much evidence against them for me.

Well I'm not necessarily promoting them, even though I have an oiled filter at the moment. Just curious as to what your reasoning was is all.

I saw a dry type filter with an interesting design at the auto parts store the other day and I'm debating on switching over to it just because I think the design of the filter would be effective with my CAI setup. If the concensus is that a dry type filter is better than an oiled filer than it just gives me another reason to buy it.
