Re: Oiled air filter
Antmat, I listen to you carefully....
and I agree in general, but in my 156 the K@N sits in the standard
airfilter box and the intake is the V6 one, so the heating up problem
is not that big. I strongly reject the so-called open filters in the engine bay for obvious reasons. I fixed a couple of Alfa's with open filters and replaced the old filter house and a V6 intake, the owners were speachless about the difference, cars ran 100 % better.
And agreed , the standard 156 paper filter is OK, but I don't have to renew the K@N after 10.000 km, it is a pain in the *ss to renew an airfilter on a 156.
