Soo...I know my EST SRI filter is definitely not really Blue anymore from the initial oil after using it for bit. I'm pretty sure recharge on K&Ns are like 50k miles or something crazy.

This also goes for EST's filters? Just wondering when I should be planning to buy a filter recharge kit for it.

Re: EST SRI filter recharge intervals (stealthS60AWD)

I asked Frank at EST about my filter as it turned white after a while. He said this was normal as the blue dye goes away. When you recharge it with the afe filter recharge kit, it will turn blue again.

In the instructions that came with the filter, it states it should be cleaned and recharged every 30-50k miles. But then they stated as a rule of thumb, you should inspect the filter in the time it takes three regular paper filters to be changed and see if it requires a cleaning and recharge. This is to account for dustier environments, etc.

Re: EST SRI filter recharge intervals (S60AM)

Cool thanks for the info. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

I noticed stuff is stuck up in the valleys of the filter folds and was thinking of pulling that off and shaking that crap out. Also to check and possibly clean the MAF w/ the CRC MAF cleaner. Need to find a torx bit to buy for the MAF though
