I wasn't that surprised. I've found fine dust in the air intake tube
leading to the air flow meter after I've installed K&N. I often wondered
what's the freezing point of the wicking oil K&N supplies. The filtering
(um, sticking) property of K&N filters rests heavily on that oil. Has
anyone analyzed that K&N oil?
