This may be a stupid question but I am not very mechanically inclined. I bought a K & N air filter as they were on sale at the local Schucks (I admit I am a sucker for a sale). I know you are supposed to oil them, and it came with a little oil and cleaning kit, but do they come pre-oiled for the first use? In the oiling instructions it says that the filter is white and their oil is dyed red so that you can tell where you oiled it, and my filter is all red. Am I correct in assuming that I only need to oil it after subsequent cleanings?
As I lower my head in shame, I must confess that I accidently grabbed the wrong filter (I thought it looked small). Even though I checked the code 3-4 times I still grabbed the 3.8 liter version. :sad: Now I must go back and hope they will give me an exchange. I believe the correct part is E-0945, as opposed to E-940 which I mistakenly picked up. I will let you all know my impression when I get it done. :wink:
Whaddya mean Windsor/Cleveland or Modified!?! I just need a rebuild kit and heads for my 351 dammit!!
Ahhh.. the good ol days.. :smile:
Don't feel bad Ivan. We've all been there/done that. I didn't even bother to look up my K&N number.. I just skipped to the service counter and had them do the work for me. :wink:
I must be gettin' lazy.
Well I got the right filter and it finally stopped raining long enough for me to put it in. It seems to work fine. I think I sense a little more pickup, but I could just be imagining things. I don't think my rear-end is really sensitive enough to detect the difference between 265 and 268 hp. :wink: One thing I definitely noticed is the sound difference. I now get a bit of a high pitched whooshing sound coming from the engine. It is a little annoying, but I will probably get used to it. I am assuming it this from the change in airflow and not some mistake I made. I hope.
