    Re: Air filter cleaning

    Just to add the reason people say don't oil them is because of Mass Air Flow meters. The oil sticks to the sensor pickup and stop it from working as it should also gives the ECU false readings on air flow.

    What car is the filter fitted to?
    Apex RDX Coilovers | 20mm Hub Centric Wheel Spacers | De-Wipered | RCD310
    Winter Pack | Comfort Pack | Parking Sensors
