how to clean the intake filter
Hey can anybody tell me how to clean the Injen CAI's filter because mine is all fill with the dirt on it. Someone told me you just clean it with just spraying water on it. Is there any special kind of solution can clean it off?

u need a filter recharger kit... you can get it at pep boys or autozone ect...

its about 12 bucks, and there's 2 steps. instructions are on the bottles.

water wont do jack and you will remove all the oil (that you need) from the filter.

There is a K&N filter cleaning kit that you can buy at any auto part store. Make sure you oil the filter after it is dry.

K&N said every 50,000 miles. But, you should clean it a little more often.

just remember NOT TO OVER-OIL the filter. the oil will get to your mafs and gunk will collect hampering performance. just use as directed and you'll be cool for a while. thumbsup

Thanks for the information guys. But it will be pain in the ass to clean because the filter is all the way down to the wheel so everytime you gotta remove the bumper first.

You don't have to remove your bumper. Just turn your wheels to the right. Then get the filter out through the wheel well. There is plenty of room.
