an oiled filter will trap more particles

Normally the oiled filters flow more air, are reusable, last the life of the vehicle.

Paper filters normally trap more dirt, flow less air, are a 1 time use.

IMO, a "best of both worlds" compromise is the AEM Dryflow Filter. Higher flow rate than the paper stocker but no oil to contaminate the MAF or IAC.
