Spartan 210 and "GREEN" air filter?

With my dash daq set on the 210 tune and using the green filter, every time I get on it the filter minder gets sucked in and the dash light comes on which obviously means that it's creating a restriction and the whole reason for buy ing this filter was to lesson the restriction. So if I buy the S&B cai will I still have a resriction enough to suck in the filter minder or is there a better cai with less resistance? And I want a real cai not some open box that sucks in hot air from under the hood.

I have been running the GREEN filter for 8,000 miles now. 210, 250, 275, no issues living on a dusty dirt road. Maybe theres an issue with the filter minder?

I just recently bought the filter new and put it straight in the truck. I swapped out my filter minder with one from a friends truck and it did the same thing without me even really getting on it, so these filters must be somewhat restrictive when runing these tunes. I think that I will just buy an S&B cai since these get the best reviews and won't throw a cel.

there most be another issues or maybe a difference in trucks. My truck with the 275 does not even start to pull the filter minder down.

I have the S&B intake with a new dry filter and the filter minder will get sucked in 1/4 with the KEM 250 tune and the Spartan 210 tune. I did notice that the filter minder does get sucked in a tad bit more with the dry filter vs the oiled filter.
