    I wouldn't run a K&N (or any oil charged air filter) on any car with a MAF, or especially any kind or forced induction. That oil ends up all over the MAF and skews it's readings one way cold, then the other way warm. I see this every day at work. There are lots of good high flow dry filters to choose from. If you go back to NA Speed Density, have at it, there's nothing to mess up.

    I haven't seen any oils on my MAF. All of that is fine. I'll check it out again when I pull the CAI to replace it with the new BBK kit. Going back to Speed Density isn't even being considered. The car is running well.

    Much of that has to do with people over oiling the filter after cleaning it. If done correctly according to K&N's instructions it's fine. I've never had an issue.

    The issue is the average person is quite stupid and doesn't follow directions.

    Well, I tore the intake manifold, valve covers, coil, CAI, distributor and wires, and the radiator/fan assembly out of the Sport yesterday. I replaced the electric fan with a new Taurus piece, replaced the coil, and was about to install the new Trick Flow R lower intake and then I realized.....no gaskets for the lower intake. CRAP!!! Ran down town, no one had appropriate gaskets for the larger ports, so, I ordered a set from Summit yesterday evening, they should be here tomorrow. Then I can install the intake.

    I pulled the Moroso Ultra 40 wires and installed Livewires on the distributor cap, I'll fit the new strut tower brace later. The new CAI is a pretty easy install as well. I still have other parts that need to go on, fuel pump, ignition box, master cylinder, clutch, rear CHE control arm bushings, MGW shifter, all brake pads, window motors, speedo gear, and Traction Lock.

    One piece at a time and as always, it'll get done. I'm going to sell off my old CAI and probably the lower intake. It was TMoss ported. I'm keeping the GT40 upper to fab intake plates.More updates and pics later.

    Yeah, I know. I know. LOL.

    I always do......can't say that anymore. LOL. I may have been mistaken when I thought I had the lower intake gaskets. OR, I'll find them as soon as I button everything up. LOL.
