Thanks guys. I am just turning a dream I have had for a while into reality. I would post more pictures but for some reason I can't. The block is supposed to be back from the machine shop Tuesday or Wednesday. I will try and figure out a way to post more pics. I think I have exceeded my maximum limit.Well put.
A lot of people play games, whereas op does not.
If you don't have a MAF sensor to worry about, there is really not much to worry about with K&Ns. I usually clean the K&N but don't oil them much or at all. It makes for a reduced efficiency catching particles, but haven't had a failure or notable damage on a teardown from it.It has been a little bit since I have posted an update because the block was at the machine shop. I am going to check on the car tomorrow. In the mean time I would like to know what air filter you boosted guys use besides K&N. I refuse to use them again.
