I don't believe AEM filters are paper. I believe they are a synthetic cotton-like medium that do not require oil.

K&N bought AEM a few years back, but it's nice to see that they let them kind of keep their own line for those who prefer a dry filter over an oiled one.

And in all of the vehicles I've owned with K&N filters, as well as my parents which have received them (so, the Cav, my Cobalt (at one point), three Fusions, two Pacificas, an Avenger, an E-150 and a Grand Caravan), NONE have ever had an issue with an over-oiled filter. This generally happens when someone "recharges" the filter (which I did do on the E-150) and uses far too much oil.
