I washed my Fujita air filter today. It's been hanging to dry indoors for about 10 hours, with a lamp shining on it for most of that time, and me rotating the filter in intervals. Think it's good to go?

pinch it with a fork and see if it squeezes juice. Are u looking and medium rare or well done? laugh.gif laugh.gif

since its winter it will take for ever to dry.

the best way to dry it is to put it somewhere warm.

If your desperate enough you can put a hair drier about a foot away and blow hot air at it.

Bahahaha laugh.gif

That lamp was pretty damn hot... all I had to do was barely touch it and it'd singe me. It's been about 18 hours now. And it's not like I live in a humid place, I live in Albuquerque, it's desert here.

those filters should be good to go even when they're wet.

That doesn't sound good...

And it's fully dried, I just re-installed it.

You didn't over dry it, did you?

A wet filter isn't going to cause any problems. All the engine would do is suck a bit of water vapor for a minute and run just fine, no worse than a CAI getting rained on or something. The only time water is an issue is if the whole intake is under water, like in a flood.
