MS Filter

I know that I should "RTFM," but I had a quick question for those of you who have MS intakes. Specifically, I've had mine for ~1 year. What should I be doing maintenance-wise at this point in terms of cleaning it, etc.?

Open up the box and take a look. Some people need to clean the filter more often than others. I clean mines at least every oil change. Get a filter cleaning kit, it contains cleaning solution and oil.

You could just wipe it down, vacuum whatever you can and just dust it. Probably the same thing.
