|Champ||Sure, but it's not that hard to clean them in the first place.|

regardless i supose dishwasher will work to clean but you still need the oil.

|Ice Man||Just don't over oil the filter and your MAF will be fine.|

yes, oil can and will deposit over time on the MAF sensor. That is primary reason why they make a sovent-base sray cleaner for this sensor.
The oil is required for k&n based filters...they come with directions for a reason.

And the K&N kit is $10-$20, so not sure where you got that $40 figure.

Also if you have to oil it might you be able to use something more generic and cheaper than the $40 K&N or Accel kit?

|mcrowley||The K&N stuff will work fine. If you want to keep the blue color, you can get the Accel filter cleaning kit.|

|Marksy||I'd be a little hesitant to oil the filter or over oil it. K+N filters caused horror shows on so many GM mass air flow sensors that GM actually came out with a bulletin about them. Definetly DO NOT use any oiled filter on a Duramax 6.6, just in case you guys shoe-horned one in your NG or 9-3. My GS filter does look dirty though. I'm gonna be quiet and see how this pans out. . . . .|

Cleaning GS Blue Filter
I have the GS cold air intake with the blue filter, my question is,
Can i use the K&N filter cleaning kit (Red Oil) or do i need to use the Blue Filter Cleaner and Oil Kit from GS?
