K&N Air Filters on 2.8 Vr6

:lol: I have a 2001 Gti 2.8L and I've heard that you can use K&N air filters on the vr6. Does anyone know different and why is is not possibly a good idea??

its ok to use, just make sure to clean off the mass air flow sensor (attached to air box) with throttle cleaner before you install the filter and every time you oil the filter (after oiling and driving for a day or so)

I used one in my 01 gti vr6 amazing! It really woke it up.

good tip veedub mechanic. If you don't let the oil dry entirely it can coat the wires of the MAF. I cleaned my MAF after years with electronic cleaner spray and I noticed a difference in overall response and power.
K&N is great. I have the Neuspeed short one (p-flow?). I want a cold air tube but it rains too much where I live
