Foam and K&N filters can hold more dirt before limiting airflow.
Now if you can show scientific proof that they will filter out all
particulate of X size and larger, not just that which happens to hit 
the oiled foam or cotton gause, then I'll use one too.  Until then
its Mann, Fram, Purolator, or Bosch filters.  Paper!
