paper filter all the way if you offroad.

if you drive on the street any one of the more air intake filters are solid choice.

Never thought much of K&N.
Like Andy said , paper filters.
I use nanofiber filters by Amsoil,both in the Frontier and my Dodge.
Good for a 100k, just blowout. No oil.
Discontinued but may be available if you do a search.

+1 agree with @AndysLog & @whistler

K&N might be good for you if you're not one to keep tabs on your regular maintenance... but if you are looking for a small bump, go with a full intake system instead.

Also +1 for paper if you off-road a lot, since you'll be changing them a lot - hat's the whole point, it's based on your usage

Well, not to state the obvious, but they're not self-cleaning... meaning, K&N's do real well with trapping dust and dirt etc. for longer periods of time compared to paper - but keep in mind that while it keeps all that stuff away from your engine, it doesn't "get rid" of it.

So yeah - ideally clean your K&N when you would normally change a paper filter (based on your driving conditions of course), but if you stretch the mileage a little between cleans at least you know the K&N will do its best. ::smile::
