I had a conversation with the service manager today from the dealer where i normally go and was asking him about thw mods i plan on getting and if he would have a problim warentying my truck he was ok with the exhaust and tuner(odd) but when i said intake he went on a 10min rant about how the oil from the filter gets up in there and causes "driveabillity problems" i for one have never heard of that was there some truth to that or not

Yes oil from the filter can get on the MAF sensor and cause problems. Best bet is go with a filter that doesn't use oil or plan on cleaning it off a few times after you clean the filter.

Better yet stay stock and you will save $$ since you won't see any improvement with an aftermarket intake anyway.

GM actually has a bulletin that states that if there is an aftermarket air filter that is an oil type and there are drivability problems and the codes are related to the MAF then it "WILL NOT BE A WARRANTABLE CONCERN" and will be customer pay!!! Ask him for a copy. if he won't give it to you contact me and I will email it to you. I think it is BS but people do over oil the hell out of them
