ITG air filter question (archive)

I have the JimC intake and have been very pleased with it. Today I had the car in for an oil change (not
at the dealer) and my mechanic told me that the ITG foam filter is for racing applications and does not
filter enough for extended street use. He said that at minimum I should add a filter sock over the foam
filter to get the smaller particles.

Any thoughts/opinions on this? Anyone else using this setup for street or is it just for track. Am I
causing significant wear on my engine by using the ITG foam filter? Does a "filter sock" help and if so
where can I get one?
