    I have had both, AEM is so much quieter and the quality is also much better than the pipercross

    The fact aem is dry flow, and pipercross is an oiled filter, and the oil has been known to damage the mafs (I'm on my 3rd) it's definitely aem. I got rid of my pipercross for one.

    Didn't think the piper cross was oiled as it's made of foam?

    It is suppose to be oiled to be effective

    Cleaning instructions always say to keep them oiled after wash. They obviously do make dry versions but I haven't seen any for the astra.
