:stupid ive went w/ K&N on everything i have ever owned and i havnt EVER had a problem.... they also flow more air than a foam filterOriginally posted by bunkerking217@Dec 31 2003, 04:37 AM
in my 4 years of riding of about 10 diff quads(families...) we all use K&N and NEVER had a problem with dirt getting in. As long as your outerwear doesnt have a rip, you will hardly ever have to clean the filter! just the box and outerwear get dirty really. just my .02
even tho i like K&N's ill back you up a little. My pawpaw bought one for his truck....got 16-17 mpg with the stocker and like 12-13 with the K&N - same speed, set on cruise, same distance....Originally posted by Tampa450@Dec 31 2003, 05:00 AM
Not startring a war, to each their own
I've seen oil analysis on diesel trucks with all kinds of air filters and the K&N let more dirt into the oil. Its just kinda hard for me to get past that in my head.
I saw a dyno chart that showed a powerstroke with a K&N then the same truck with the stock motorcraft filter. It showed: 0 horsepower/torque gain and 0 Exhaust gas temp change. It surprised me to be honest.even tho i like K&N's ill back you up a little.

I think most people make the mistake and see a K&N Filter as a system to improve performance/effeciency of their engine. See the the K&N as part of a system. K&N Can't really improve intake if you dont also let the engine exhale properly.
