    Re: K&N Filters installed

    I will add that I installed the K&N filters recently without any install issues, no problems, and I noticed a faint increase in power--but it isn't crazy insane extra power.

    There are previous old posts about issues with K and N filters needing extra oil or allow too big a particle through. Is there still these issues and concerns regarding K and N filters ?

    I think any time a new part is installed on the R8, you have to let the car's computer "get used" to it... So you turn on ignition and leave car running for 8 - 10 minutes as it learns the difference from the last air filter you had. People that install a new part and then start revvinng the engine are just looking for problems or check engine lights to come on. So I was told anyways by the techs at German Motoring.

    From recent incidents reported here I would say to much oil is not the way to go, a couple people have had their MAFs messed up from that. Stock filters are dry so the aftermarket I'm now using are also dry. I find it tough to believe any quality filter would allow big particles to go through, whole point of them is to not allow that

    Re: K&N Filters installed

    Installed mine last weekend.... can really tell the difference at the low end. I have a 6MT and
    the initial pull to get the car moving as you feather the fuel is less! Have not tested the top
    end yet but will do so.

    Agree 100%, never install a part and gun the engine.... treat her like a lady boys.

    Attached photo: Factory verses K&N, then final photo of done task. In total
    taking my time it took 20 minutes.
