    I didn't find sarge's, but I do remember these. Yes, some to most people find the oil a problem and go with any basic paper filter.

    Not a problem.

    I think the biggest problem with oil filters it the drying time and over oiling. These 2 factors lead to oil getting everywhere. And since there's little to no benefit, in HP, to an oil filter, why not go paper?

    Yeah oiled cotton gauze filters are way old technology. Go with an amsoi ea filter or a aem dryflow. Both utilize a synthetic media
