    *IMPORTANT* K&N Filter Wire Mesh Coming Out

    I took my k&n filter off to inspect it today and noticed some wire mesh pieces loose inside.
    If you have this setup I would check it out.

    Is this one of the non-oiled mesh only ones?

    GM used to offer a 'heavy duty' air filter, which was actually a K&N. I don't know if they still offer it or not. I installed one on my Tahoe years ago and saw an immediate increase in gas mileage of about 7% (don't know why, I figured the MAP sensor would compensate). I live in West Texas, which is a very dusty place. I sold my Tahoe with 373,000 miles and it was still running just fine.

    I installed a K&N in my Suburban and saw no difference in mileage at all.

    That said, do you really NEED an air filter when out on the water? Not really.

    I was just thinking the same thing about out on the water. But the testing showed scary results.

    Ii like the uni style foam filters for watercraft specifically because they don't have the same fine mesh.

    I'm thinking about going back to the clunky stock setup.
