If you over oil them accidently, they can screw up the MAP sensor and cause codes and limp mode.

Honestly, the overall best intake for a stock-to-500hp application is the OEM unit.

I would have to disagree with that. It has been tested many times and air intakes do help on stock trucks.

As far as over oiling, the S & B precision oil kit helps alot in making it so you don't over oil your filter.

so if you say not to over oil an air filter then if you do that and keep oil down to the min needed then why stay away from k&n? if you say use an oiled filter why is k&n so wrong? just curious
