So is the filter we want to use the K&N HP-2009 for sure? I looked but I didn't find that thread now, just thought I'd ask again. I'm up for the 1st change in about a week.
No comment on the quality of one filter over the other, but comparing an engine that is going to be stripped down, if not rebuilt after every track outing to a daily driver is a bit of a stretch.Stealth said:I guess K&N's are so bad, thats why drag racers use them :roll:
But...but...but...but...I have the hp-2009. :?lifeisdeath said:"I guess K&N's are so bad, thats why drag racers use them "
because a few drag racers use them make them the best in the world? did you ever hear of sponsors?
"ill pay you to use my product and put a sticker on your car."
there have been many tests, and the k&n oil filter is NOT good. the airfilter, however, is good.
have to find the link with the k&n info
Hmm..unlikely.bubba said:I don't know how the quality on all K&N oil filters are, but I will never buy one for a diesel dodge pickup. I know a diesel mechanic who works for Cummins and they got a ram with less than 10,000 miles in with a dead engine. The cause was one of the piston oil squirters got plugged with a piece of something that got past the K&N oil filter. That $10 filter cost the guy a few grand. And since it was not an approved dodge part, dodge did not cover the cost, it was all out of pocket for the guy.
I realize it could have been something in the filter prior to installing it, but I will take my dealer oil filters for my cars.
