Is anyone using a K&N air filter? Do you like it or hate it? Did it make the gas mileage go down?
Same here.Jeff said:The only thing that worries me about the K&N filter is the possbility that oil from the filter can damage the MAF sensor, which is expensive to replace.
It all depends which one you use. If you use the OEM filter, which goes into an OEM air box. It will make power after 4,000 RPM more or less. You will feel the engine pulling harder at high RPM with a little distinctive sound. The funnel kit, which is a little more expensive. But it gives more power along the entire power ban. Gas mileage, well that depends how heavy is your right foot. :wink:Jamal said:Is anyone using a K&N air filter? Do you like it or hate it? Did it make the gas mileage go down?

IIRC, there is something called the Magnuson-Ferguson Act - or something real close to this - that basically states that as long as the mod complies with the mfg'rs specs, the mfg'r can not wiggle out of product support.Dre said:This is a bit off topic but I found it very interesting. When I bought my 05 RAV4 I asked if I could get my oil changes done at any licensed mechanic without voiding the warranty. I was told that I could but that I had to use Toyota oil filters or my warranty would be voided. The following article that I found from the K&N website seems to explain that by law, it can't void the warranty. I was just wondering if this is true or if there's exceptions to this law before I go and ask my salesman about it. Here's the site:
Smart move. Read this... you'll be glad you removed it.Benny said:I put a K&N insert on my V6 Nissan Frontier and found NO statistical difference in gas mileage... I considered it a waste of money and replaced it with a standard filter rather than going to the trouble of washing and re-oiling (it's somewhere in the garage now).
