Green Filter or ITG filter?

Hey guys, Im looking to order Fswerks' Cool-flo air intake for my 05' ZX3. Im just not sure what filter to go with.. I live in a rather dry, dusty place (Las Vegas) and rain is something that doesn't happen quite often. Which filter do you guys think I should go with?

I've had my fs werks intake with the itg filter for over four years now with no problems. I just clean it once a year and it's been fine, though I won't say there's anything bad or wrong with the green filter. From what I gather it's a good filter too but at the time only the itg was available. Don't think you'll really go wrong with either.

You can't go wrong with a part that is specifically engineered only for your car

You'll be fine either way, FSwerks does not sell junk filters. They only started offering the greens in the past year so most of us, that have that setup, have the ITG filters since it was the only choice. As far as mine, no complaints on it. It's easy to clean and works well. I have had it on the car for years now and the filter still looks as good as new after cleaning. Just pick which ever one you think looks better as they both will perform fine. I suggest ordering the cleaner/oil stuff at the time of purchase just to save on shipping and to have when you need to clean your filter.

Right after I posted that I went on their website and noticed they sold them now. They didn't a year ago when I got mine.

Just purchased mine with the ITG filter. The only other thing I bought with it was the oil crap. So when I get it, I oil it, then install it? And in a year I get the ITG cleaner to cleanse it?

You have to use the itg oil or you'll make the filter fall apart

When I look at my order, the title says Cool-Flo w ITG filter, etc but then it says no oil. Does that mean it doesn't come with oil or that it isn't pre-oiled? Cause then in the product description it says pre-oiled.
