I gave up on K&N when I had to clean two of them for the first time. PITA. Started using dry flow.

why did you have troubles? i used to clean the one on my off-road buggy once a year THAT was it.

your not supposed to have to clean them very often, and just pop it into dishwasher and let dry and re-oil. no big deal.

on a 'normal' street vehicle, once every 50k should be plenty

Good Info. I run a Typhoon on my Magnum and it works well. K&N Drop-in on the Ram with Airaid MIT (actually just installed tonight) and Older Moes BT Ported TB. Clean and re-oil every spring as its very dry and dusty on the Prairie. I do believe that too much K&N Oil will frig up the Map Sensor but I cannot prove it.
