I am swapping out my k+n filter for a foam setup. What can i use on my filter for oiling? Is 5w30 motor oil ok. My parts source doesnt carry filter oil. Would my k+N oil work also? Thanks.

Can you use motor oil - yes. But filter oil is a lot tackier and thicker and will do a better job than motor oil.

Don't use the K&N stuff, that's made for cotton and won't work as well in foam.

Thanks gentlemen, guess i gotta go to the stealership, having a tuff time finding filter oil else where.

Honestly I'd just find a cheap spot to buy it on the web and get a few cans of it to keep on hand. I always keep an extra K&N recharge kit lying around the garage.

Why are you swapping your K&N away? They're the best.

The K+N is just a drop in that i ran with a powerlid. I won the twin air kit on ebay for a absurd price a while back and was interested if i was leaving a little performance on the table using the K+n powerlid.
