How do we compare Dry type element filters that are drop in like the STI,SYMS,,With filters like K&N,ITG????
Is because the ITG and K&N are washable and they need oil??
does the dry type ones need oil??but they can be reused??
Thanks

Personally I prefer K&N but to each his own.

The paper filters "can" be re-used. I don't recommend it, but if your not looking for performance it can be done.

Take it out, bang it on something hard and clean like concrete, garage floor, the car if you really want to.

But it is better if you replace them, for better air flow, and lots of stuff you can't even see that just gets the filter a dirty looking color.

The dry element ones really shouldn't be reused. The K&N type are resuseable because you can clean & revitalize them with a kit that they sell. The dry ones are paper the K&N type are not and also permit more air to flow thru.
