k/n

i think k-n filters are crap , i had a handa civic cage , put the k-n on and a few months later the cage ran like crap , i found out that the filter was shedding so it killed my mass air flow censer , my censor was covered with red fuzz

Hizzo3 yeah, its just the K&N filter recharge kit.... you can also use simmilar products.... should be about 20 or so bucks and it lasts a few changes

JohnBoy750 Can you get the foam oil stuff at the car parts store?
11-20-2006 12:40 PM
Hizzo3 i just use clean motor oil every 2-3 oil changes and lightly oil it... you can also use the foam oil stuff mentioned before....

K&N filters improve alot over paper filters......almost nothing over foam filters though....

How often does everyone feel they need to change/clean the filters and what do you use to clean them??


When you can't see day light through it. Check them frequently, say, once a month.

Krawdad7 I think if thats workin for you thats great.Put a little bit of light oil on before you install new ones.As far as getting debris in your oil thats highly unlikly its pretty tough getting past those rings.........

UPSIDE - It works a lot better
DOWNSIDE - Can't clean it. every 3K - 5K I have to make new ones, but it really does a good job.

I think they made it out of standard foam stock material and used like liquid nails to make the filter.... prolly would cost alot less then stock... And there is almost no advantage to moving to K&N over stock other then cleaning ability.
