Remove it and spray some MAF cleaner in it. You can get the stuff at any auto parts store.

anyone know how to clean the CAI that comes with the Roush Stage III or II for that matter. says it's 100% washable, but they don't say how to wash it or what to wash it with.
thanks

The K&N Filter Clean and Recharge kit is your friend...
You can buy it at most auto parts stores.

It comes with the spray on cleaning solution and filter oil.
Just remember to be light and easy on the filter oil. Too much will cause the MAF to get soiled and your will not be very happy...

Well I guess I have OCD because I do it every 5000. I clean and bag the filter after I pull it off. Also, I do the MAF, TB and dump the air oil separator. Doesn't take long and it's habit now. Maybe it's over the top, oh well.

thanks guys, Roush finally got back to me and they have a replacement filter for that. also found out that's the same exact filter offered by AirRaid (#700-461). I just don't trust myself spraying the oil back on the filter........... too little...........too much. it's so worth it to me to spend the $80 and not have to worry. really appreciate the replies & really every 5000 sounds like a good plan just to be on the safe.
thanks

I cleaned/oiled mine every 10k miles or so. The first time I did it, I neglected it to the point that it was caked on with dust, grime, bugs, plant/tree debris... simply disgusting.

Its not rocket science...

Just a quick and light coat and you are all set. The key is to let it dry for a bit!
