I run the blue non oiled filter from Airaid or FRP...lol it comes in a ford box which has a airaid box.

No problems at all. I ran this in my 11 Shelby as well.

My filter is dirty as hell. I didn't bother with buying the FP one since IIRC, the OEM filter was dirt cheap like $15-20. Guess I'm getting the FP one now.

I have the dry Airaid filter as well. Only issue for me, the pic of the filter alone is not accurate - I thought the color would be close to lightning blue to match my coil covers, but it's light blue.

Looking for instructions on how to wash. Do you have a link?
See bottom of this instruction PDF: https://www.airaid.com/instructions/AIR-450-328_inst.pdf
"NOTE: Synthamax Air Filters do not require oil. Service air
filter as needed by cleaning with common non-petroleum allpurpose
household cleaner and water. Simple Green®, Formula
409® or equivalent works great. Apply cleaner to outside
of air filter and allow to soak. Then flush filter clean from
the inside out with a garden hose and repeat steps if necessary.
Do not apply high pressure water or air to clean filter. Allow
filter to air dry and reinstall. "

Simple, thanks!

The same cannot be done to the OEM...different material?

If by OEM you mean the paper filter that came on the car, then No.

AirAid makes the Ford Performance filter.

I don't have a 350, but I do have the FP Power Pack 2 which uses the 350 Intake. I kept the paper filter as a back-up for when I need to clean the FP/Airaid filter, since I have no idea how long it'll take to dry. I figure one paper filter will last the life of the vehicle, since it'll never been on for more than a day or two.
