    I am looking into this also and not convinced there was a general concensus?

    Some mention ITG, green and also K & N (lubed).

    Are the piper cross definately dry?

    The cleaning instructions seem to suggest a lube is needed. I suspect if its not used, it wont do a grand job of air filtering??

    They are dry, its just not on their site. They developed a new foam in order to use it dry. ITG is good as well but avoid anything oiled, because of your MAF sensor. in terms of filtering dry filters are designed to filter just as well as paper, but obviously if you want maximum filtration stick with paper.
