You dont have one yet do you?..well if it performs good then it might be worth the money to get would save alot if its a lifetime but all depends on it doing well in performing. Now how would u clean it? What soak it in soap and water? Or is there a special cleaner for those also like the k&n air filter.

Garage
it'd pay for itself in ~60k miles (decent ones run around $10/ea around me). so thats not bad if your car is newer and you plan to keep it for a while.
