Hey guys. My first post in this section so I hope I am correct. I was browsing around and found a thread regarding the negligence of K&N drop in filter. Living in texas around roads that are very dusty and poorly maintained, this thread got me thinking. My car was a gift to me, and I intend to max it out as far as possible until I can afford a manual ford focus st. With that being said, I have done a snorkel delete and wanted to install a drop in filter, but now I am having second thoughts. I would love to have a slight increase in noise and power but at the same time, I am nervous about how the environment will affect my engine over time with the dusty and dirty environment of texas. Not to mention the presidents epa cuts may also affect the vehicle in the near future.
