Yo, today I swapped out my CAI for my stock airbox cause it looked ugly to me and it didn't exactly fit super snug... anyways, i'm back at my old air filter and was wondering if there was a way of cleaning the paper filter or anything? How often should a (stock) air filter be replaced? Thanks...

Mike

just take it out, bend it around upside down (fan it out) so dust and crap falls out, other than that... not really. Not sure I'd try water :P

I do that because I'm broke and it's not filthy dirty yet so I'm not worried, otherwise I'd get a replacement.

You can vacuum it all you want. It wont do much. You arent going to get all the tiny particles out by vacuuming it. Those little particles are what restricts it. NOt he big ones...
