Re: K&N Long term effects

I have used K&N products on motorcycles, ATV's,
cars, pickups for years, seems to be a real good
product.  I have noticed no problems but who knows,
maybe the Powerstroke is different.  Jerry.

-I have had a K&N filter on my truck for ~80K miles
-(truck has 84K total), and have not seen any ill
-effects.  It still has just as much power as it did
-when it was new (seat of pants).  I think the only
-way you would know for sure would be to have a
-population of trucks where you measured the
-compression as new, then ran some w/ K&N's and some
-with standard filters for an extended time and then
-re-checked cylinder compression.
