Ok, let me try to put this in words that maybe you can understand!

There are two indisputable FACTS from these comparisons:

1) The OEM paper filters have 5.5X the filter media area of the K&N filter media


2) The paper filter media filters much better than the K&N filter media


And this comparison is consistant with:

1) The results of this independent air filter test:

2) Rich's post regarding K&N intakes:

You will *likely* increase the amount of grit entering the intake.


3) The reports of contaminated MAF sensors, high Si in UOA, and "dusted" turbos when running K&N air filters


4) K&N's recommendation to use the following in "very dusty conditions"

Why is it that all the info you post about problems with a K&N is from use in turbo diesels? Where is the info from use in N/A gas motors?

Wrong John, there are plenty of MAF sensor contamination, and high Si in UOA reports from gasoline engines!!!

Here is the difference between discussing a topic and arguing with a grumpy old man. The proper response would have been to post a couple of links to the info requested, i.e. N/A gas motor problems, since what I saw was links to diesel web sites. Instead, you chose to tell me I was wrong for asking for evidence.

I'm done.

And another clue is a posting history that contains (guessing) 10,000 "!!!" and screaming in CAPS. And as for "MAF sensor contamination, and high Si in UOA reports from gasoline engines!!!" - hardly a day goes by that I don't have to clean a contaminated/dirty MAF sensor at the shop...and nearly every single one will have a paper filter installed, not a K&N filter.

Also done.

Great, good riddence!!

All you did was whine, nothing constructive at all!!

Why don't you show evidence that all the damage from K&N's is always on
turbo diesels, and no N/A gasoline engines?

Alrighty. 8 pages now. Seeing that absolutely nothing has been proven in any of these so-called "tests" and that this is destined to be nothing more than waste of server space, I think it is time to put this one to rest.
