OK, OK. I know my old man has K&N on his 98 GMC van, which is also MAF. Not a problem. You just have to not overoil. I've had K&N's on every vehicle I own, except the trick and that's just because I haven't gotten around to it.

I have a K&N on both my cars and I have not had a problem with either, even after cleaning and re-oiling them. I spray just a light coating of oil on them and let them sit for a bit before I return them to the car.

But like I mentioned earlier, if you have a MAF you can always clean it with Non-Residual electronics cleaner that they sell in auto part stores. Some people also say you can clean it with carb cleaner and brake cleaner, but I (in all my automotive knowledge rofl.gif ) will stick with electronics cleaner.

They sell special kits for K&N. I also recommend to get that kit as they also sell the cleaner for it!

Well, I'm not sure of other brand. I went with K&N because of their good rep.

K&N by their design use oil to trap debris. Periodically (every 50k I believe) you clean it and reapply a special oil. The recharge kit isn't that expensive and does numerous recharges.

There are other filters that operate dry (no oiling). AEM makes a high flow one I believe that ElantraGT has.

Most of the cone filters you see on Ebay included in a SRI or CAI are cheaper filters that do not require oiling.
