I'm sorry but that is how air filters are designed to work. It's the oil that captures the small particles that would normally pass through the filter. I'm no expert at the subject but it seems to me that any filter that doesn't require oil would be so tightly made that air would have a hard time passing through it too. The best filters capture the most/smallest particles while restricting the least amount of air.
I'm not trying to be rude and you are fully entitled to your opinion, but I'm just saying it as I see it. In the end, do what you
feel is best for your engine even if I think your wrong.
