Default k&n air filter re-oiling - how long to wait on oil to dry before I can install again?

Hey all,
I cleaned my k&n panel filter, and oiled it this evening approximately 3 hours ago. How long should I wait for the filter to dry before I can reinstall? K&N's site is saying only 1 hour, but that seems too quick.

thanks!

I put mine on right away never any issues in the past 5 years. A little oil isn't going to hurt anything, it probably won't even make it to the intake.

Hopefully you let the filter dry overnight before you oiled it. The oil doesn't "dry out", it soaks into the filter. That's why they say one hour.

If youíre asking us I would bet that you are one, going to over oil the filter or two, not put enough. I suggest you leave the filter over night.

Your maf sensor is gonna be really mad at you if you get her oil-ly trust me she'll let you know




ps the moderator must be sleep Iím surprise this thread hasnít been moved

Probably a good idea to clean your MAF sensor a few days after you clean and re-oil your filter...

I let mine dry over night after cleaning it. oiled it in the morning and installed it later in the evening. you could get by after letting the oil settle in after an hour, I just didn't want to risk any of it gummin up my MAF. did not want to clean that son of a *****.
