K&N filter instead of stock air cleaner assembly

Anyone run a 200tdi without the stock air cleaner assembly? Is it possible to simply attach a K&N filter onto the end of the air intake hose?? Pros/cons?

thanks.

yep. Makes a loud engine even louder. My brother has one on his 200 and I have one on my 300 which I'll be removing soon. I ran this setup because I had to order the correct filter bracket for a Defender 300 tdi mine has a disco engine @ present.

I can verify doug's statement. Without the stock air cleaner box, the turbo whistle and intake noise is very loud. It's interesting for a 5 minute drive, but any longer and it is tiring.
