Bought air intake and air filter setup at around 100,000 miles and hadn't bothered to check it or change it as oil analysis reports didn't mention it. Today was a nice 60 degree day so I figured I would just replace it with one of the same instead of trying to clean it. It's the injen xx1010 / Donaldson dry flow filter. By accounts this filter had over 215,000 miles on it so I'm sure it's been on long enough.

I have seen the AEM dry flows cleaned with mild detergent so I've got some scent free vegan HE soap so I'll just use it and see how it goes..might be a good idea to keep a backup JIC.

Thank you for posting this Marco. I haven't opened my air cleaner in over 100k Kms with no plans to open it anytime soon. It has an OE Toyota filter in it. I read on this site (which is simply the best site) that filters get better with usage. No CEL and the engine runs normally. Unless I hear that what I'm doing is potentially doing more harm than good I'm leaving it be.

On my last Toyota I left the air filter on for over 10 years without incident (I think).

I wonder if you net better gas mileage, sucking in all of that hot air.

Filters have a dual purpose, cleaning the air and allowing the maximum movement of air. As the filter begins to load up air flow is reduced.Short of doing a pressure drop test across the filter discoloration of the media is a good determinant.

You don't want the old one? Someone might want it. I would clean it and use it on something.

how do you get 320K miles in 4-5 years?

What all have you had to replace?

If it is brand new, and the hp gain may not be able to be measured given all the variables.
Manufacturers give a hp rating for each engine.
Putting the intake in a warmer spot decreases the hp.

ABOVE: "how do you get 320K miles in 4-5 years?"
By driving 64K to 80K per year.

Seriously, I'm all for "a dirty filter is a happy filter" but when an engine air filter is quite dull grey and sand rains down as I remove it, I'm guessing it's OK to change it.
30K is what I use.

My post was serious. Won’t the intake of hot air result in better gas mileage?

I doubt the slight reduction in PSID across the intake with the SRI will make up for the ingestion of hot air, resulting in less power.

Just install a filter restriction gauge, then you'll know when you need to change it:
