Default make sure oil is dry

make sure that you allow ample time for the oil to dry because i did'nt know that and put the filter back on in a matter of 30 mins. this messed up the mass airflow sensor and got some oil into the injectors. so the dealer graciously fixed it free of charge (because they did'nt know :D) they had to clean the entire intake system

Are you serious? Oil in the injectors? WOW, if you did not pay them for cleaning your injectors because I would've felt really bad for you. There is no way oil got into your injectors, the air doesn't go through them, they fire into the intake path, not the other way around. Even if you managed to get the oil in them some how, just a few secs at WOT would blow it out through the atomizing process.

No but u can get oil on your MAF which can cause it to fail. Thats why I switched to a AEM dryflow.

Yeah does anyone know if weapon-r is dryflow too? Seems like they are just being cheap now and not making any oil.

Hmmm before ever reading this i cleaned my Injen intake filter with compressed Air.. i didn't think about damaging it... do you think that i may of damaged the cone and i should buy a new one.. i only have about 15k on the intake and filter.

I'd also thought Fujita was oiled because of the color but the website says...
Cleaning the air filter is simple and can be done using soapy, lukewarm water, and let air dry. The Super Flow High Performance Air Filterô contains a synthetic fiber that does not contain any oil.

if you can clean the filter about every 50k miles or 100k miles... how often do you have to change the filter?

and if you have to change the filter, do you have to use an injen filter for let's say the Injen CAI (RD2105), or can you use the K&N filter...

NEWS FLASH!!!

just read this thread over at the Lexus IS forums and found the info to be pretty helpful!

http://my.is/forums/f88/best-method-...s-ever-188702/

you get a bucket, use 2 scoops of Oxy-Clean (scoop included) then 3-4 liters of Soda Water (club-soda), dip your filter for about 5 minutes and watch all the dirt and grime float to the top!!

then repeat the usual steps of Air Drying and Oiling!

Cant wait to try this myself!

So, it says to spray cleaner on both sides of the filter. Does this mean inside of the filter as well?
