Well you learned a lesson that I learned a while back. Did you look at your turbo wheel. Was there any damage.

Sorry to hear that. Hopefully there's no serious dusting. I ran a K&N filter for a long time, but I was lucky. I finally changed it out for an Amsoil air induction replacement filter, and I saw no signs of dusting on the turbo wheel then. Good luck.

You should be fine. I ran one for about 1.5 years and then I found holes in it. The holes were about the size of a 25cent piece. I contacted K&N they did warranty it under there 1,000,000 mile warranty overnighted a new one to me. Which I used for a short time till I got my filter from napa. Now I am looking at getting a dry reusable filter from aem or another similar company.

From my understanding it really is just K&N.

If you want the best filtration go with the Ford AIS intake, nothing will filter better. My UOA's prove it works.
