    the oil on your MAF comes from the lack of a oil catch can due to a shitty PCV valve design. Lots of guys with paper filters and oil clogged mafs and intake tubes. Can't blame the filter for what enters the system behind it.

    What do you mean K&N housing?

    If it had a stock filter in it, sounds like a factory airbox that someone put a K&N sticker on. The cold air (cold water) intakes use entirely different filters.

    :rofl:

    Need to pour some water and dirt down the intake too.

    over 140,000 miles on my K&N, never had any of those problems, oil is clean on the stick.
    I've run them in every vehicle I own and none have ever burned oil. But you guys go ahead and keep buying those restrictive single use filters. :thumbsup:

    and by all means cut a big hole in your airbox while you're at it,, you know, for better air flow with that restrictive paper filter.... and then screw a cover back over it because it let water in during a rain storm while you drove down your neighborhood street.

    Well, that could very well be the case... It has a sticker that says "K&N filter won't void your warranty" so that seemed like a strange one to put on after the fact, but I suppose anything is possible

    Edit: here's a pic

    I laugh a little every time I read someone do the deckplate mod claiming they got a noticeable increase in power.



    Oh, and my WRX came with a drop-in K&N, I took it out a put a paper filter in. :p

    It's just stickers on a stock air box.

    Get an AEM washable filter. Fits in the stock box and you can clean it with dish soap. :thumbsup:

    I never had issues with my K&N filters either. I just like the 1 step washable design of the AEM filters. No oil needed. Damn near exact same filter design as K&N.

    I was thinking about buying one of these filters. No need for the synthetic cleaner they try to sell you?

    Thanks Eric. I'll look into them the next filter change.

    Another thing guys. If any one needs a "mule" for Saturday I'm going from here to Alamosa and back. I'll be leaving at 430 tho. So it will be an early run. Just in case someone needed me to help with transport of goods. Later and have a good day.

    I have been running it for a couple years now. Just wash it with dawn dish soap.
    Nope. Just a mild dish soap like Dawn or similiar.
