Originally posted by olympic: I've been searching around for a paper substitute that will fit on the aftermarket short ram intake that was on the car when I bought it. If I can't find something that fits I'll try to scrounge up a stock airbox and retrofit it so that I can use paper filters. I plan to drive this car a while.
quote:My motorhome had a great UOA on a K&N. Silicon was 3 ppm. Nonetheless, I don't like the K&N when it is time to reoil. I tried reoiling one for my pickup and ended up getting about 10 times too much oil and couldn't use it. I kept oiling it because when I would hold it to a light I would still see holes like in the photographs above. I abandoned the K$N in two vehicles now and went back to paper. When the motorhome K&N gets dirty enough, it likely will go paper too. Also, washing it is a pain. Where do you dump the oily water? They should have a service where you can turn it in for a reoiled one. At least you can inspect them for holes in the store.
Originally posted by Patman: My Corvette came with a K&N air filter already installed by it's previous owner, and I decided to leave it in for at least one UOA to see how it performed. I inspected it when I put in the Z06 airbox, and it looked very new as well. But yet in my first 5000 mile interval my silicon was only 7ppm!
