I have a few concerns about installing an aftermarket air intake (short ram or cool air). I've read about oiled air filters ruining the engine. Instead I would like to install an dry flow (oil-less air filter). What are your recommendations or suggestions? Any good aftermarket companies?

Thanks.

AFE makes a dry filter.Ive run theirs on my 13 SI with zero issues.Ill be using one in my 17 Hatchback Sport here in a few days.

From what I've read the SRI's are right about the turbo's which get very hot. This often results in heat soak and drops their performance potential. I've seen people go back to stock. They sound good but often result in less hp/trq.
