Air Filter

My truck neeeds a new Air Filter. The one it has right now is a K & N. I was told that it wasn't a very good brand for my truck. Can anyone help me out?

If your truck already has a K&N filter, just clean it and re install it. No need to buy a new filter. Never had a problem with K&N in any truck I've ever owned.

On naturally aspirated engines they work fine but on forced induction engines they tend to let more debris past the filter.
