K&N air filters

There is a thread about K&N air filters in the diesel section... however, no real answers.

Do you folks in the tech field have any input as to whether the K&N air filters are a good thing or not in the diesel engines?

Do a search on this topic. It has been discussed a number of times. Diesel/Gasoline I don't there there's a real difference.
Just put one in my 1995 C280 and I have been impressed!

Others can get more technical for you I'm sure.

Exclamation Real Answers Are What You Make Of Them...

Most of the information on this website is opinion. With some exceptions where people have actually done some research, and are interested in providing factual information, and debunking myths.

Follow David's excellent advice. Do a search, read all pertinent posts, and contact K&N drectly. Then evaluate the available data, and make an informed decision of your own...
