Stainless Steel Mesh Air Filters

Is a stainless steel mesh air filter bad for the motor in the long run? I just got a cheap CAI off of ebay, it sounds great but i dont wanna hurt my motor. plus not having to oil it is a plus. if ss mesh is garbage, can anyone recommend a better filter?

it is cheap garbage. The best filter IMO is the AEM dryflow. There is no oiling necessary, plus its a good name brand filter. You can get one shipped for like $45.

You guys should check out Tru Flow.
I have one in a boosted 3.5 sandcar and I don't have a speck of dust anywhere in the entire intake tract. Last season I ran a K&N and found fine silt all caked inside my turbo housing.

just to let you know, the stainless mesh filter like the Blitz SUS filters are mostly useless... unless you need to filter out rocks and small children. otherwise, itll admit too much small particulate matter and youll end up with alot of silica contaminants in your oil and... well you can see where im going with that. if you want something that is good at filtering and good flowing, AEM Dryflow is a good starting point. its the best of both worlds without draining your wallet; alot of us in the supra community run it with the single turbo setups.
