    K&N Over Jetex........

    I know the air filter thing has been done a million times before but.....
    I really want a jetex but the fact that it's blue just put's me off, my engine bay is red and black and i just cant bring myself to fit a blue filter lol, sooo......
    Would a k&n filter be as good quality as the jetex.
    Been looking at these:
    RC-5112 - K&N Universal Air Filters, Universal Filter
    or
    RU-1785 - K&N Universal Air Filters, Universal Rubber Filter
    What you guys think?

    Dye it red with food colouring, i think the problem with the k&ns were they are over-oiled

    yeh they are pre oiled and can screw up the MAF i hear. you could wash it out with hot water but i dunno if that would defeat the object? food colouring thing is a good idea actually

    Well their virtualy the same material as the jetex set-up, when you service that you clean it and re-oil it, same idea as the k&n surely?

    no idea mate. i have a carbonio aswell as a jetex. my carbonio has a carbon fibre intake pipe and a red filter (which you dont see anyway) but i guess if u bought a carbonio it doesnt matter either way. only prob is filter sits low to the ground hence why in winter ill use my jetex. u could hwover just bolt the red carbonio filter the same as the jetex without the carbon pipe. expensive new so better off with an ebay jobby. or just go for the k&n lol

    probably not helping here..

    i think the oil affecting the maf is rubbish. iv had a k&n panel filter in for a year and a half and my maf is fine. i think the problem would be if you were re oiling it and you put way too much on it may affect it.
    i was thinking the same with the colour thing, as i have a black car also. but i wont ever be showing my engine bau off to anybody so it doesnt concern me too much.

    IMO the oil f**king up the MAF is rubbish aswell, i've been running a k&n panel filter for 2 years without any issue. But i'm thinking of getting a jetex cone just for the increased noise lol.

    Just got a 007p so on the look for a induction kit of some sort. Just confused as to which one to get after all the searching and reading threads

    Definitely don't want a cai! Had one on my TypeR, it almost killed it!

    its not rubbish it happens, but more so on people who have just serviced their filters and applied too much oil themselves

    most oil on maf is engine breather source not air filters

    Yes i suppose if its over oiled it could cause maf issues. When i last cleaned mine i was aware of the oil and maf issues so oiled it quite sparingly, its also due to be done again soon. Just out of intrest Bill how much can you supply the jetex cones for?

    no worries braderz.

    Ye pretty much and it has 3 like 'L' shaped brackets that are adjustable that the jubilee clip goes round then the cone sits in the middle of that lot and clamps to my MAF sensor.
