    K&N Air Filter 996 C2

    sorry if this is a dumb question , but wanted to know when re oiling a K&N Air Filter for a 996 C2 coupe, do we oil both sides of the filter or just the top side that is facing up towards the sky?

    Re: K&N Air Filter 996 C2

    Since its a K&N air filter replacement you are using (not cone), I recomend to just go and buy a new one and replace the old one since its very cheap and the reason for this is that if you leave any excess oil on the filter it can damage you Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) and would cost you much more.
    If you still want to reuse it anyway, I belive you should spray both sides/pleats, but at least I recomend you leave it over night over some paper or something to soak up any excess oil just in case.

    Re: K&N Air Filter 996 C2

    I've used the bmc cup filter on my gt3 for some time and i never put that oil on it, just cleaned it from inside out by air compression. I've once heard that the oil could be soaked into the engine and make damage...??? Or is it even worse that i don't use that oil?

    Re: K&N Air Filter 996 C2

    It's worse clean cotton oiled filter with compressed air,it will damage the cotton fibre.

    Always replace with a new one,like said also Carlos.

    Re: K&N Air Filter 996 C2

    DO NOT OIL both sides of the filter... only oil the UNDER side where the air meets the filter... and don't use too much oil either... 3-4 quick and even passes should be more than enough... let it dry out and see if there are any "white" spots... should be pink after re-oiling... better to use too little than too much... too much = new MAF!!

    Re: K&N Air Filter 996 C2

    Better to use little more oil and too little, because you've got to really over oil it for oil to be dripping off the cotton, and if theres too little oil theres chances that dirt will get passed the filter.

    Also even if you sprayed the maf with oil it won't damage it, it may not work correct if theres oil on the maf, but once it's been cleaned or the oil has burned off it will resume correct metering.
