Re: anyone got K&N exstreme

Are you talking about adding the whole open element with teh extreme top, or just adding the extreme top on a motor that already has the open filter?

I'm running the regular filter in the stock air cleaner on my TBI, but im starting to dislike the whole idea of K&N after what i've read on here and what dust and stuff i find on the INSIDE of where my filter is in the air cleaner.

Re: anyone got K&N exstreme

That is odd. I run an open element and even after about 10,000 I didn't find anything on the inside of the housing. You sure you got it oiled well enough? THEN again, I don't drive in dusty conditions very often.
