k&n intake question...

Hey guys whats up.... Just a quick question, my buddy gave me a new k&n air intake system and we installed it and it works great, just wondering if anyone has had any problems with it that i should know about, I dont have head studs or anything either??? And another question how exactly do you gut a cat. and what exactly does it gain for your truck.. Thanks in advanced....

Replace the K&N intake with different brand.

K&N sucks a$$...... as for gutting a cat...its a PITA so just buy a delete pipe or buy a turba back exhaust setup....the gains is less back pressure for more HP and TQ as well as lower EGT's

Beware!!!! The King Has Returned

The stock filter is MUCH MUCH better than the K&N and will handle MORE than the stock turbo can ask of it. Get a delete pipe and save your CAT. You may need it in a year or two. Not to mention the scrap price is outrageous for those things.

I'd have to agree with saving that cat instead of gutting it. (way too much trouble). Replace with pipe. Flows/sounds better and lowers EGT's slightly.

As far as the K&N ..... some have complained of turbo dusting. I personally think some were not installed correctly. Drop-ins have had the biggest issues. I pull my hose off and check turbo every oil change. I think some hose clamps get loose. Use air ratchet and not screw driver to TIGHTEN THOSE HOSE CLAMPS GOOD!!

Diesel Freak does this look like it is installed improperly. Nope sure doesn't to me. But what I do see is holes. What are those holes from sand. Where did the sand come from the sand dunes I went to for a weekend.

Now yes the filter is grey. That is because I was cleaning it when I discovered the holes. I called K&N and they asked me to email pictures to them. I informed them that I discovered the holes when cleaning the filter, I told them that it was not oiled. They said no problem they just need the pictures to verfiy that is a K&N and then they would warranty it. Now K&N did over night me a new filter. But I still replaced it with the TYmar filter. At least until I can find a new aftermarket filter intake I like.
