Does the RS Akimoto filter fit? I've heard it's outstanding. Their website has some great info on it. Too bad their intake isn't as good.

there is a special cleaning solution for the filter that supposedly cleans it very well. Doesnt AEM use K&N filters and arent those supposed to last for 1 million miles?

any filter that is working effectively will collect the dirt. Thus, it needs to be cleaned or replaced periodicaly when it gets 'filled up'. Lifetime is a relative termsuch that it coulc be 10kmi, or 1 million miles or 7 cleanings, etc.

I'd say either K&N or Apexi. Apexi requires no cleaning and is good for life. K&N is good for life, but requires cleaning and re-oiling.
