Best value non-oil Air Filter to use with snorkel delete mod ?

I am going to do the snorkel mod, but I noticed the K&N E2993 filter is an oil filter and requires cleaning with a kit. I would just rather not have the hassle of re-oiling the filter and risk mucking up my MAF sensor. Is there a dry filter that is easier to clean or a cheaper replaceable filter that I can use that will still give me the performance gain with this mod?

I am happy to have found it myself. When I got my car there were none available. I got an Injen intake because they use the amsoil dry filter which I love. But I may have to get one of these myself. If you get one, do a little write up on it with pics.

This looks like a good option to me. Just so I understand correctly, the information I've seen implies that this filter flows better (lower restriction) AND filters more efficiently than stock paper filters, though it flows less well than the oiled K&N type filters. Correct? I was not able to find a test or any actual numbers comparing restriction/filtration between this filter and paper and K&N.

Yea it looks like a good filter, I cant seem to find anywhere to get it in Canada. A place said theyd special order it for me but itll take 3-4 weeks. I dunno if any of you guys have some recommendations on stores in canada? Ill put a review up when I get my hands on this filter one way or another :D

I ordered one from AutoAnything. Just showed up today. Popped it in. Very high quality, beats K&N in my opinion. Plus no damn oil. I hate those things. =(
