Bought my truck and drove it for about a month before i had to go back to sea. Never really looked into the k&n filters because of their "reputation." Now im sitting on a ship wondering how jacked up everything is, how long that filter has been on there, and how much this is going to cost me
Talked my girl friend into pulling the intake off, she will be doing that in the next two or 3 days. When ever it stops snowing(shes a keeper) she said shell tear it down. Shes going to take a million pics for me.
Ive put about 2k miles on it. The intake looks pretty new (but who knows), its the cone style filter (heard different things about wether that matters). Truck is a dually and was used by its last owner to haul boats back and forth from boat yard to his shop. He put about 5k miles on it in 2 years. before that it was in florida(he shipped it up).
I havent had any problems with the truck. When i bought it #8 would "stick" until it warmed up or you pushed the gas pedal down, would roll coal then be fine as soon as you let off. snap on scanner said #8 was a little out wack compared to the rest.
These k&n's how long we talking to dust the motor?I know there are a million variables involved in that. Thing still runs and drives fine, but diesels are a tough animals. Guess ill just have to wait till the gf sends me pics to see if i buy 3k worth of **** sitting in my online shopping cart or i look for a new motor, or slap a for sale sticker on it.
Cone filter? box style? Any difference in their ability to let dirt through as far as k&Ns go? I dont head home for at LEAST another month so you can imagine how bad im stewing over this.
Ill keep you posted on what i find.
