    Ended up buying the Volant Cold Air Intake w cold air ram and power core filter. Hopefully should have it by Friday. I'll post pics and vids if I can ever figure out how to do it. Haha

    Afe with dry filter. Whatever u get, my advice would be to avoid oiled filters. I've gone through 6 mass airflow sensors on various vehicles...all fouled by oil filters. Never again.

    In 2007 and 2008 the Volant was/is a good system, when GM changed to the cartidge MAF the Volant stopped being as good because of the poor way they attached the MAF to their tube

    I would Look Into the INJEN Technology CAI. It is supposed to be already made specifically tuned
    for each application.

    Appreciate the advice, now I'm deff glad I went with the power core filter( dry). As silly as this sounds, how do I post pics of my escalade on here?

    Interesting... I've had the K&N filter on all my vehicles and NEVER had any issues with my MAF's.

    Me too, never had a problem, the only time I have seen issues is from over oiling, they come pre oiled and the only time you ever need to reoil them is if you wash them.

    It may never be an issue on the escalade because of the design...the MAF is a bit higher up. On many of the vehicles that I had probs with, the filter mounted onto the MAF housing and was right next to it and the filter was level with or even a bit higher. The escalade filter hangs down a bit which may help keep the oil in the filter. I just won't buy them anymore as dry filters are just as good or better and I have the piece of mind it won't mess up my MAF. If you do a bit of research on it, you'll find it's a common complaint...I'm actually surprised K&N hasn't been sued becasue of it.

    Are you guys able to post any sound or video clips? Does K&N make a dry filter?

    I'm not sure how many dry filters there are on the market but I know AEM has one. Had one on a Tahoe and I was happy with it.
