Got an e-mail today from autoanything.com suggesting a call in for best price on K&N Filters...S60R filter (E-2019) for $48 delivered. Seemed like a pretty good deal. <p>I'm in no way associated with autoanything, just figured I would share a good deal for those getting ready for spring.

Re: K&N Air Filter (Garnetmica)

Guess I wasn't paying much attention. I understand oil can end up on the MAF but I didn't realize so many R's were having problems running K&Ns...<br>

Re: K&N Air Filter (The Weasel)

9 months with my K&N and absolutely no problems. After running it for about a month, I removed and cleaned the MAF sensor with electrical contact cleaner, just to be safe. I did notice that the intake pipe had a very thin layer of oil and dust on it, so the K&N may not be good long term, particularly in heavy dust areas.<p>The biggest danger is excessive re-oiling after cleaning. Perhaps some of them come overly oiled from the factory, which is causing problems with people's MAF out-of-the-box?<p>Cheers,<p>J

Any thoughts on wrapping it in a paper towel or clean microfibre over night to wick away some of the oil or low pressure compressed air to blow some of it out? Before it's installed...

Re: K&N Air Filter (soupandspoons)

15 months with my k&n and not one problem thus far!<br>I don't really oil it alot, and usually every couple of months take it out and bang out any dust.

Re: K&N Air Filter (crimnlmnded)

<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>If you install your K&N <i>wet</i>, it *will* foul your MAF. All you have to do (and this is the same as any other MAF equipped car to <U>ever</U> run a K&N) is either let the filter dry overnight outside of the plastic bag it comes in, or if it's very wet, than wiping it down a bit, of course, also removes some of the oil. That's all anybody has to do with a K&N to run it on the R. It's not rocket science folks, if the darn thing is juicy, that juice is gonna end up on the MAF wire. But it doesn't need to be juicy.

Re: K&N Air Filter (JoeLvo)

Easiest thing to do to prevent MAF fouling after oiling the filter is to suck air through the filter with a wet-dry vac before re-installing the filter. <p>You can do this by forming a loose seal (with your hands is fine) around a wet-dry vac suction tube inlet and the outlet of the filter and let the vac suck air through the filter for a minute.<p>Cheers,<p>J

Re: K&N Air Filter (soupandspoons)

Well, the <i>easiest</i> thing to do, really, is simply to keep the stock filter in the K&N box for when you clean and re-oil your K&N. You just pop the stocker in for a day while the K&N dries on your workbench. Easy as moon pie. <p>But, as long as you don't use your K&N medium rare or juicier, you really shouldn't have a problem.

Of course, tearing off the foam bit is crucial IMO.<p>I also use the method of standing the freshly oiled filter to drain for a day, then flipping it to drain for another day, then popping it in the car. I saw this posted by R Kelly, but I don't know if he's the originator of it. Works great <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
