Re: K&N Filtercharger for 5kTQ?

I can't remember where I read or heard about cars that use K&N filters 
suffered from premature intake valves failure or accelerated wear on intake
valves. It was from either this group or from one of the newsgroup. Did
anyone else in this group hear about it?

I have a 100 v6, I am interested in getting a few more horse power but I
do not want to damage to the engine because of using K&N filter.
