Dry-Flow Air Filter Maintenance

How often do you guys clean your dry flow air filter? I have the cleaning solution but it wasn't cheap and I don't want to waste it. I got the intake at the beginning of the summer, maybe I could get away with cleaning it in just hot water?

I don t think the sound changes too much bc I can't hear a difference but you'll def feel the difference with the colder air.

race2thestart is an unknown quantity at this point
clean it when it starts getting black, then you know. I just got a cleaner kit and it worked great.

I was reading up online, and AEM at least says they make their filters larger than they need to be, so performance doesn't degrade if you get a little dirt in the pleats. Clean it when it starts to look nasty, or just replace it. You could also check the manufacturer's website, and see what type of mileage interval they recommend cleaning it at. Also consider though, that it depends on what type of intake/filter you have, and also the conditions/climate you drive through.
