Hey, I pulled this air filter out of an EL Fairmont that I wrecked, it's a splitfire one and I think it is washable, question is, am I correct in assuming it's washable, and how do I wash it, and is it good? lol

thats a washable filter, but it doesn't look like there is any oil on it.

just use the K&N wash and oil kit. Don't use to much oil though, I have seen alot of people drench it in oil and it actually pools at the bottom of the airbox and cant be good for the throttle body.
