Cold Air Intake filter life??

Guys I was wondering what is the average life expectancy of the filter on a cold air intake? Do they get dirtier faster than a normal air filter?

K&N filters are good for hundreds of thousands of miles, properly cared for.

Agreed. Yea I would say clean it every 10,000-20,000 miles. If you have an extra filter, then just swap it out and clean the dirty one whenever you have the time. I have 2 filters with my Vararam intake. So I'm planning to change them out once every summer.

As patriot stated the filter can last up to a million miles if properly cared for.One of biggest problem is that people over oil them when they recharge them.
