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
Any one notice a gain in HP??
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
