Depends on how badly you over oil your filter. Check it with a flashlight once a month and if its dirty clean it.

i'm not planning on taking mine out every month, maybe every 6 months, but that's cause after checking it the first time at 40K miles (10K with the intake), it really wasn't dirty at all.....i would think that'ld be a good way of stripping those screws and messing up the seal against the intake.

Just don't use too much - a very light spotty pink will do the trick, deep sopping red is excessive.
As for how there have been numerous threads with pics... an aerosol non-residue cleaner is a good start. alcohol on a Q tip works if you are VERY gentle and take care not to leave any lint or debris on the element.
