    K&N Air Filter

    Any advice on whether it would be worth it to purchase a K&N air filter so I don't have to keep replacing the others?

    If you have a K&N, notice anything different with the car?

    You won't notice a difference. Might as well though, it's cleanable.

    Check out Green (that's the name of the brand, and they are that color too) filters as well.

    I've got the k&n , no difference in power .
    I think it's kind of a pain cleaning and
    re-oiling it . I never know if i put the
    right amount of oil . However I guess
    it beats having to go buy a new filter
    every time . Idk , six in one hand ,
    half a dozen in the other . That's my 2 cents.

    It will make the same difference that the K&N will make over stock: None.

    that's what i figured. i read that some people noticed an 2mpg increase but that was it. didn't think it would be noticeable.

    thanks!

    There is no real set answer. Just check it every once and a while. It depends on how dusty your area is.

    Both AEM and Amsoil make a dry media washable filter.The AEM would be my first choice and both would be better than any oiled filter.I have the Green and it is much better quality than the K&N.

    that's cool , i didn't know they made a dry washable filter .
    do you think it offers as much protection as an oiled filter ?
