Hey everyone its been a while...:wave:

Well I was just woundering is it really bad for my car that i'm driving with my K&N cold air intake in winter? I heard stuff and winter is pretty harsh here in montreal..

Usually I change it to the short ram for winter but, I got hurt at work and have 2 herniated disks so my mouvements are limited....(it makes from september)

I was thinking that in spring, I would change the filter because it probably got really dirty but I havent checked..

Thanks...

I think it's already to late don't you think? It's already February, half way to March.

I don't know how cold it gets in Canada, but here in Vegas, it got down to like 20 degrees. And my car was acting up, and drinking gas like crazy! :thumbsdow

I don't see why you would need to replace it? :dunno: It's K&N, you would just have to clean it.

CAI's are only really worth it when it's warm out. Otherwise, air density screws up performance and drains power and MPG.
However, it's a little too late now to take it off (especially if your back is hurting). Next year, swap it out.
