    Ha ha. I actually thought about Frankensteining something like that and taking a picture of it.

    No, I'm serious though. IMO, it's the best of both worlds - better designed intake with no oiled filter to cause potential MAF issues. You'll have to get a different length filter from AEM though.

    I gotta admit, that's a genius idea lokey...
    The only thing is, would a different filter, with different filter material cause differences in overall measurements of airflow. I'm sure there's a reason Cobb selected the oil filter types. I could be wrong... but I'm curious now and would like to swap my oiled filter out.

    Oiled filters provide better filtering, but less air flow. Conversely, the dryflow provides better airflow, but less filtering. Each has their upside and downside. As far as switching it up, considering the Cobb OTS map for both is the same, I can't see how it's not safe. If you have any doubts or just need some peace of mind, call Cobb to verify.

    Im Scheduled for a ProTune at Cobb. Would be nice to find out if I can swap out Cobb's filter with a dryflow filter. Lokey, I've seen many of your posts in other threads regarding intakes and filters. Some good info as well.
