village idiot A great deal of information on this subject can be found by using the search feature on this and other forums. Some very experienced offroaders have expressed very strong personal opinions based upon their history. Almost all basically agreeing with post #3, #4, and #7 above.

dalehelman I do not use a reusable filter. I prefer the OEM paper filters. I feel they filter finer particles. I do use one of these Amazon.com: K&N 85-2445 Filter Minder; Push in: Automotive in my intake. It lets me know when the filter is becoming restrictive.

doclouie Neither. It will not help with power or mileage.

They do offer good improvements on other vehicles, just not on ours. Save your money and just get a normal filter and keep replacing it regularly.

commodore_dude Neither. Just get a Wix or Napa filter and enjoy an engine that doesn't get all fouled up.

Curky My opinion, K&N intake. I have got one for every vehicle I have owned.
