How much longer can I use these DCIs for?

Any idea how much longer I can use these DCIs for or should I be taking them out asap? I'm thinking about returning back to the stock airbox but prefer to do it after the winter. How much longer do you think the DCIs can last till? Thoughts?



Thanks.

AS long as the cotton is in tact, its doing its job of filtering.. Then you can clean and re-oil to use again.. But next cleaning, i would get rid of them since there so inexpensive anyways.

Ok, guess I'll try and source my own. Does anyone know what the height of the BMS DCI Cones? I know the inlet piping is 2.25 inches, but what's the height?

Check the website or ask Terry himself

P.S. I personally prefer a CAI, but that's just me

I think they expired a long time ago haha

Let me know if you want a K&N Panel filter for stock Air box. The single cone intake isn't as popular anymore since the DCI came out.

The DCI cones from Terry@BMS are like a $5-8 markup from S&B without the legwork. Just buy them from him.
