Speedbump, your starting a pis... match by stating that my post "misleads" anyone.
"IMO", which means in your opinion, it is better to "overoil, then it is to underoil or to filter the air less"....... for a newbie. On every bottle of filter oil it says not to overoil and to squeeze out any excess. Air filter oil can damage the engine if it is sucked into it.
My post educated Nipper, I would think, on how an air filter works and the theory behind a K&N filter, also horsepower vs engine life. This way he can make a decision about what is more important.
I did not get into how micron particles may effect different parts of the engine and what sizes are acceptable because our little engines usually fail from heat and not dirt. Except when the filter completely falls off, which is almost always the case with air filter related damage.
From your post nobody, who isn't an experienced fullscale racer, should use a K&N filter in their street car?
Sorry for the long post, but the word misleading for me is like calling "Marty a chicken", especially since i've been biulding fullscale and R/C race cars as well as repairing them for over 25 years........
