hardly maintenance free, need a good vacuum, or air dusting every now and then.

anything you have to Oil is a bad idea IMO especially with a toyota DENSO MAF.

the Oil seems to bake onto the heated wire and its bye bye MAF.

As I found out the hard way, and had to buy a MAF of you lol. I cleaned the crud out of my blitz occasionally, and since then I have bought a metal heatshield to go around my filter.

Or buy a 'Maintenance Free' A'PEXi ;)

:lol:

From where can we order that and how much does it cost?

For me neither, I dont think the cost for the gain is justified but if I were to buy one it would definitely be Apex'i. I dont like oiled filters

I have already installed a KN panel in the airbox but I was wondering if one of the two is better (or any other brand like Green etc).
