    Cool 2004 - 2.0TDi with K&N Air Filter mod

    Anyone here who has tried this? K&N Air Filter. There appears to be 2 types out.

    1) Straight OEM Replacement kit, PT Number: 33-2865

    2) Replacing the whole box with an all out kit. PT Number: 57-0618

    dont - apparently the oil used by K&N badly affects VAG engines!

    you would be better off with replacing the panel filter with a Green one - dont get an induction kit!

    Any panel filter or Induction kit filter; that is an oil oiled cotton gauze based type; that has been OVER oiled can potentially damage MAF sensors.

    Early Impreza's had very sensitive MAF's and were prone to failure when oil based performance panel filters were used.

    I used a oil based performance panel filter (cannot for the life of me remember which one) in my 04 Impreza for 6k miles without a problem.

    If it is I would still go for Green over K&N which has better results

    a friend of mine has a 190bhp cupra TDI which he has had green and k&n panel filters - green performed better.
