K&N Cold Air Intake Question

Ok, I've had my K&N CAI for about 6 months. I wasn't getting the deep sound like I did when I first got it, so I recharged the filter. (cleaned and re-oiled) I'm still not getting that sound back. Any clue?

Any performance issues? Follow all the instructions including drying time?

Sometimes downstream sensors can get contaminated. That would reduce your throttle body from opening to the max. Less opening ...less sound etc.

When everyone else gets out of bed they might have some more insights I'm sure.

I would clean every thing up and disconect the battery for at least an hour. Other then that I would'nt know what else to do . Hang in there someone who would know will chime in. Good luck!

sounds to me like you need to clean the throttle body out n clean the MAS like blazernut said might be reading wrong therefor reducing ur horses as for how much do they kick out id say around 10-15

Super/Turbo charging AND NOS at least I'm guessing. More then I would want to spend! Might be better off just getting a SS
