MG MGF Technical - k&N
|Just "cleaned" my k+n filter|
had only taken a peek after a service to make sure it was still there, only 30,000 miles but choked up (manuel says clean at 50,000 miles) so got a restoration kit and did the biz
cant beleive the improvement, like somebody has taken the bung out
I don't do anything to advocate more frequent cleaning.
|Buy an ITG :) ? They advertise with having a much higher dust loadup. And they cost 41 pounds new...., add 10 pounds for a silicone hose and you have a perfect filter-kit.|
Makes you wonder about the K&N hype...
|Unfortunatly a good thing about a filter is that it gets dirty. That just says it all.|
Regularly clean my K&N cone, guess about 2 times a year.
|I agree - the K&N 57i needs cleaning every 10,000miles (if not sooner as Erik suggests) - primarily because those cold air ducts work and project road dust and small debris straight at the filter... Good to know those ducts work - not so good that it leads to rapidly filthy filters!|
