I heard that the oil in the filters is causing problems with the electronic sensors in the car over time. I know it is an issue in the newer BMW's. Anyone else heard that?

Oh... I forget to tell you... to get free shipping, enter Code: KNE

At $37.24 includes free shipping, that's cheap.

IMHO the K&N (air filters) are far more trouble then they are worth.

I may have to buy one of these if someone doesn't ship me an intake already...

Hmm who sells Cts-V intakes?

Hmm wonder if they are in stock.

Primary problems with the K&N are (1) expensive and (2) hassle to clean. But because if we can get them cheap, got mine for $37 shipped, it not expensive for me. Secondly, I don't plan on cleaning mine (see the cleaning instruction http://www.knpowersports.com/clningins.htm) because they last 50,000 to 100,000 miles. I plan on replacing mine at 50,000 miles with a new one. But I will check it from time to time. As for oil in the going into the intake... someone needs to expand here... my friends at Mazda Club and BMW clubs uses the K&N for years and they haven't had this problem. Hope this helps.

During the cleaning and re-oiling process of the K&N, it is possible to place too much oil on the filter. This "loose" oil, under high engine load, ends up on the delicate MAF sensor wires. This contamination on the MAF wires changes the sensor's calibration, throwing off the air flow measurement into the engine.

If one is concerned about this, pick up some electrical contact cleaner at the autoparts store, remove your MAF and "hose down" its wires once every great while.

1> Many of them come over oiled from the factory, I have seen numerous cases where the TB butterfly was caked up with stuff ~10k after inital installation and that's right out of the box - never been cleaned/re-oiled, they are supposed to be ready to drop in right out of the box (this was not the only part with oil covering it, the oil goes where the air does).

2> Many of them let in too much dirt. In several cases I've done oil analysis ~5k after inital installation of a K&N right out of the box, silicon (dirt which your air filter is there to remove) almost always reads high, causing undo engine wear (changing oil and puting the stock filter back brings the #'s back in line), something I'm (personally) not willing to risk for a replacement air filter. Jim Conforti (BMW master tuner guy) did some similar tests on the amount of dirt they let in and has proven this to be the case for (IIRC) ALL oil gauze type filters on street cars. I have shown this (my results) to K&N whose response is it must be some other factor it's not OUR air filter (whatever).

YMMV
