I know this is probably 101 for most, but first time for me and thought it might help some one out, also allows me to use my new found photobucket skills, and I am pretty much killing time with a bottle of wine and a bad action movie, so here goes, if you like please hit my rep and I will return the favor. Any way, little back ground, I have the K&N CAI, and I was talking with my neighbor who is a Chevy/Vette guy, he was admiring the mag and comented on the CAI, so I said, yeah I am goin to pep boys an get a new filter and he said they are pricey, you can recharge it, so i went to PB and he was right, it was like $90 buck, recharge kit was $12, hard choice!!!. got it home and gave it a shot, it is a no brainer and it really did the job.
here it is.
This is the kit you buy,
it has two stages, a cleaner and an oiler
Here is the CAI in the car, and truthfully it don't look too bad
Little dirty, nothing major
Yeah right, once i took it out and got it in the shop, it if fricking filthy.
First step is to thouroughly soak it with the claener inside and out and let is sit for 10 minutes, I used about 1/2 a bottle, and I was being very liberal, so I guess they count on you getting 2 used out of the kit.
Let it sit and soak
After 10 minutes, the dirt is just draining off.
Next step is just to run cool water through at low pressure
