    AEM Drop In Filter

    After asking Jordan @DefinedPerformance for a new air filter (stock or similar style) he sent me the AEM drop in filter. Construction looks very nice, fit into the box nicer than stock, cleanable, dry filter (no oil to mess with). Sounds better in the car too. The car seems to like it as well, no good gas mileage numbers to report prior to install, but it is doing quite well since I put it in.

    Overall I am very happy with it. I'll report back with pictures of what it caught and how it looked before/after cleaning.

    Essentially you’re increasing airflow with a bigger diameter pipe so yes you do need a tune

    That was my mistake I read it completely wrong while with a client but final answer and you can quote me on this one, no you do not need a tune w/ a drop in filter

    Sorry, never saw these responses. A tune is/was not needed with drop in filters.

    I still like the filter, it does a nice job.

    How often do you clean the filter?

    When I change the oil and when I wipe down the engine bay which is probably every other time I wash the car.
