I put a K&N on WJ did an oil test 10k miles later my silcates AKA dirt jumped from 15 to 90PPM Also on the wj the oil from the filter clogged up the TB.

Plain old paper filter will filter better than a K&N.

Amsoil and AEM sell Oil less filters an will work better than K&N could hope for.
10k miles with a K&N filter

Re: K&N Filter Element for Hemi..yes or no?

i have the aFe dry one - honestly i don't know if it works or not, i do notice is a very, very fine dust inside the air chamber which is typical for these so called high air flow filters. either dry or oiled. i may switch back to OEM paper.

I do have a borla cat-back, which i do know has increased horsepower, but in terms of MPG - i have no clue.

Re: K&N Filter Element for Hemi..yes or no?

I had one installed before I went with the Volant CAI. I could not tell the difference between the K&N and the stock paper element.

AGREED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How many times are we going to debate "The Facts"

K&N oiled cotton gauze filters flow more air, don't increase HP or performance, and while they are flowing that air, allow more dirt into your engine while you use them.

Enough already on this!!!!!!!!

k&n sells a lot of filters every year, I would think they would be out of business if they were destroying engines.

Oiled filters if done right will not clog up anything, not sure why people don't follow the instructions and then complain about it.

I do not use k&n filters but not for the reasons of them letting more dirt in or clogging up sensors with the oil.

Why would you use an air filter that knowingly doesn't filter as well as the OEM paper filter?

Why would you use a filter that has proven in test after test, to allow more fine particles of dirt into your engine? How much of this dirt is too much?

Hey it's your Jeep....You have been warned!

Why would you choose choose a K&N Oiled cotten gauze air filter, that filters very poorly, when there are very good synthetic media filters avaliable today that filter very well?? Because the K&N sounds cool?? Because everyone else buys them, so they must be good?? Thats your response!! Really!!

Donaldson makes an excellent paper media filter thats good for 100kmiles and can be mounted on the end of any CAI filter tube.

Don't fall for K&N's media marketing nonsense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1. i don't use them but doubt they are blowing up engines
2. i agree k&n filters don't fulfill the hype but again, doubt they are causing excess wear - there would be lawsuits about it if they were.
3. too much dirt would be if it is enough to break something. some more dirt in the oil doesn't bother me that much, I abuse my vehicles a lot more than installing a k&n filter would do to it.
4-7. read #1

Did you dyno it? I know it makes more noise, but highly doubt you see a real gain on the dyno (on stock tune).
