good question...the problem is that you'll get about 4 different answers, each with good points. I'm not sure there is a "best" air filter for all applications.

Ah but this will be fun. I am partial to Toyota fuzzy OEM filters. There are no Cheap filters for our trucks so we might as well get good ones, I bought an aftermarket paper filter once and the media wasn't nearly as thick or textured as the Toyota filters.

Paper or reuseable?
Paper I say Toyota
Reusable I suggest Amsoil from what I have gathered.

I second the Toyota filters. I think they filter the dust better.

I agree, if you like paper the OE is best.

I like my K&N though ;)

I assume you're speaking of the K&N ;)

I clean mine once a year, sometimes twice, along with the MAF

In the dusty dry summer time Sierras. I am sure you dirty it up pretty quickly.
