Default K&N air filters

Hi all, I'm just after some feed back on K&N air filters and best place to buy em.
Also, if anyone knows the part # that suits the a 3lt turbo diesel 94 Surf wouldn't hurt either.
Apparently one fits but it's not actually marketed as being for the Surf.
Thanks

I generally have only used them in very dusty conditions (or competitive events - not 4by tho)

Easy to clean and maintain if you don't mind getting grubby.

whether your particular model would benefit performance wise i couldn't say. Most auto parts places can order them once you know the size.

Dagnammit!
Just went to Go gear and the guy there reckons that there are 3 types of air filters for the Surf and K&N only do 2 & mines the 1 they don't do.
Bloody Murphy's law.
He suggested maybe a Finer Filter(that's the brand name).
I've never heard of em so the questions changed slightly from the original to:
Firstly Whats everyones opinion on Finer Filters?
& Secondly is worth even goin to the reuseable filters?
p.s thanks Dripa for puttin me on to Go Gear.

Not sure if this will help or not... but I know of these people and... I think it's jeff ash that runs it... who also runs C-red tuning which are next door.

http://www.filtersupplies.com.au/ if you want a filter
or
http://www.c-red.com.au/ if you want to get into something quicker than a surf


Can't hurt to drop them an email!

Finer filter are bust , UNI FILTER brought them out .They are sold thru either TJM or ORE just can't get my memory working
I recon they are ok but they make the engine work too hard sucking air thru two layers of oiled foam

they do flow better than a paper filter, but not a huge difference in power unless you are relocating to a better set up, ie removing right angle bends etc

I was speaking to a mate who suggested sticking a K&N "pod filter" on and removing the housing for the old filter all together.
Any thoughts?

You will get better performance, but it will be more prone to letting dust and water in.

Be better off keeping it in the box
