V2 intake replacement info needed

Ok I currently have a V2 with the cone filter that came with it. I'd like to re-order a replacement filter element for it. I'm assuming that I could use one of the dry elements from them such as model# 21-205DK from AJ-USA. I know that I can just clean it but doesn't the original unit have to be 1-cleaned 2-dryed thourouly 3-then light oiled (like with K&N airfilter element spray)4- then you let it dry again then 5- re-installed. My plan is to have a backup unit so I can just change it out and go. Then when I have time I can clean out the dirty spare and get it ready for the next time I need to have the filter changed out. So really what I'm asking is What would the correct order number be for a replacement? Anyone have a place that is cheap for a replacement like AJ-USA? Thanks for your input..Craig
PS. the only marking of #'s on the current cone, seems like it's the 4.0 at the opening where it gets attached to the V2 pipe. So this marking I would assume its a 4 inch opening since that's what I measured and its 5 inches long a little more or less

The AEM filters do not need oiled... they just need to be cleaned. AEM carries a solution, and there's even a video showing you how to clean it... doesn't require scrubbing at all. It's really quite painless.

The part number for our filter is floating around here somewhere. Search for it. I just saw it the other day. Might even be in the thread just below this one.

Wait, you mean the dry filters don't need to be oiled, because I have a V1 and the filter does need to be oiled.

And I also purchased a 2nd one and pre-clean it so I can install a clean one every season.

Dont know about the filter that came with the V1 but the V2 filter does not need to be oiled.

When I got my V2 in 2004 I'm pretty sure it was oiled. I've been cleaning and oiling it ever since. I don't think they AEM had the Dry filters yet. I want the filter part number but I can't find it and keep getting signed out from this site F!
I will replace it with one of the dry filter then I think its Number 21-205DK
from AJ-uSA for $44.81 that's not bad but It'd be greaat to find it cheaper than that!

Quoted from AEM's website:

"AEM’s lifetime DRYFLOW Synthetic air filter is up to 99.52% efficient in FINE DUST testing, filters dirt as small as one micron, and never needs filter oil!"

If your AEM V2 came oiled then someone had it before you. The box even has a big NO OIL sign on it....

Oh... I thought all the V2s had the dryflow filter... thought they came out in tandem. Guess not...

Dry flow is where it is at. After having it I will never go back to an oiled filter.
