I cleaned my K&N in mid June. I did it by the book. I did not over oil it. But since then, I seen to have lost 20 to 30 HP! I am not kidding. I have a stock 96GT-Auto. It used to be when I powerbraked it, the revs would come up right now, now it takes a good 5 sec. to hit 5000 rpm, and sometimes, I can't even get the tires smoking. Something is really wrong with this picture, ja know? Also, the car used to get a really hard, and long 10-15 feet 2nd gear scratch. Now, I'm luckt if I get a little peep in 2nd. Ant ideas? I am so down on this car, Man, I can't wait to get my Tre Snake! Well, Thanks all.-Ric

You might need to clean the MAF. The oil from the K&N (and other oiled filters) will eventually foul the sensor. Be carefull though, the MAF is fragile.
