AEM Dry Air Filter 28-20480

When it was time for a new air filter for my 2014 Sport, I purchased a washable dry air filter model 28-20480 from AEM Induction Systems. $32.99 with free shipping. The car seemed to have more pickup after installation. I recently cleaned it using Simple Green cleaner(about $4 in Walmart). Somewhere along the way, I saw Simple Green mentioned in some of the AEM info. The thing I like, is you can simply clean it anytime you see it getting dirty(we get a LOT of pollen in the spring in NC). The one thing I would recommend is keeping your old filter to use, while this one is drying. I didn't, and I had to drive my other car for about 3 days while the filter was drying. If you are planning to keep your car for some time, or live in a dusty/dirty environment, this may be something you might want to check into.

I just bought this same AEM drop in filter also reset the ECU after installing it, didn't notice any difference compared to the old dirty filter but the main reason I bought it was because it's reusable.

Didn't notice any change after I installed mine other than never having to buy an air filter again...
