Tdi with K&N

Anyone running K&N intake set up with their 300's? Btw this particular application will be for non-harsh, mostly pavement, applications. Thanks!

Waste of money in my opinion. If they were so good you would be oiling your home air filters and doctors would be wearing oiled masks during surgery.

Snorkel with a good pre-cleaner is the better option

I have one on my 110 200tdi. Can't complain, feels like air is plentiful and after 3 years, only needs a clean up and oil. Might give a little more power but it ain't a big gain. Worth the price but, check for other brand as it might be cheaper.

Clay, you might want to look at the Donaldson disposable filters that just go on the end of the intake pipe. Just an idea.

I run it in my 300, some love 'em others hate them. Myself, I just hate this "throw away" society we've become.

Is it wrong to call them snake oil?

Thanks Gents!

I neglected to mention I'm not after an increase performance per se. I'm installing a disco 200 tdi w/a 300 turbo which makes it tough to also run a genuine tdi air cleaner canister (no room). Really sucks cause I wanted to keep things stock.

Dave the Donaldson idea is interesting. I'll take a look at what they've got.

They are very bad at filtering.
