Only problem you might have with it (and any other oiled cotton filter) is when you go to clean the filter. If you over oil it, you will mess up your MAFS and possibly IAC.

The only problem I see is the extra noise but most people consider it a benefit.

AEM makes filters that are a hybird and dont require oil ever and perform just like a K&N filter.
