I have heard this a lot as well, there will be conflicting opinions but I would replace it with a AFE or S&B.

I would agree to take it off and replace with a AFE Pro-gaurd 7. The K&N filters DO NOT filter down enough for small dirt that gets into the turbo and messes up the compressor wheels and interals of the turbos. If you are really worried about it you could change filters and put on a prefilter as well.

I've had a K&N filter now for about 3yrs and had no issue with it. and i work out in the oilfields. in stead of cleaning them i just bought a new one with a prefilter. I tryed cleaning one but just sprayed to much oil on it so i decied to buy new ones.. just easyer for me..

Do you have a full K&N intake system or just a drop in filter? If you have the whole system I believe S&B makes a replacement filter that will fit the K&N intake. Or measure the filter and get a universal AFE or S&B filter.

2010 F-350 crewcab, platinum white, just a few options...
H&S Mini Maxx, AFE exhaust, S&B
