Air raid= K&N filter spray?

Hey I have a air raid intake in my 6.0, would it be a big deal if I put K&N the spray recharge kit on it? Would it hurt anything?

While I myself have never had an issue with K&N, there has been alot of feedback on the oil getting into the intake. If even a small amount of oil got as far as your turbo, its all over. I think the big issue with K&N is people over spraying the filters. Just my .02

It's not the oil going through the turbo. That happens ALL the time from the CCV tube. It's the oil from the airfilter getting on the MAF causing a false reading. K&N oil is fine for your Airaid. I've used it for a long time on mine with no issues.
