Cold Air Intake Filter

I just got a 2010 Challenger and it has a Mopar Cold air intake system with a blue cone filter. I need to know if that can be cleaned and if so how do I do it. Also is this filter as good as a K&N filter?

use k and n filter cleaner spray on wash from the inside then let dry then use k and n filter oil and spray on a coat let stand for 20 min then your set k and n makes the best filter i think and the best cleaner it will cost you 25 bucks for cleaner which last for a long time

I beleive you soak it in water for 10 minutes, let dry and repeat....directions are out in the garage, I'll go grab them in a few. Some have used a mild dish soap in the 1st soak...can't see where that would hurt. IF, and ONLY IF, you have the metal mesh around your filter, then you need the oil recharge kit.

No metal mesh on this filter. Its just like the picture I posted. Since I posted this I found out that Mopar makes a recharge kit similar to the K&N kit but the oil is blue and soaking it for 10 minutes is correct. Thanks guys.

My filter does not seem to be oiled. Nor does it look like any oiled filtered I've ever owned.

I don't think you're supposed to oil these.

No mesh = no oil. Do not oil a dry filter.

The filters without the metal mesh do not get oiled. Just wash in hot soapy water, rinse until clear, and air dry. Do NOT oil the open media filter.

If you have wire mesh around your filter, then yes, use this.
