    Thanks....we all heard the horror stories of KN with Toyota but I dont see why TRD would give me a washable filter if it was so bad...so I was concerned maybe its just the KN oil they put on resuable filters

    In dusty environments, the gauze filters dont filter very well at all. And if you over oil it, it can cause MAF issues.
