I wouldn't use one, personally. K&N's are barely a hiccup on dirt's path into your engine. Use a stock-style paper filter.

Don't they have to be treated with oil of some sort ? The oil is what filters/catches the dirt.

Yes, and they also let LOTS of dirt through. Their efficiency is pitiful.

Read this test and see if you still want K&N filter.

That said, both the cotton gauze type (K&N) and foam filters (Amsoil & Jackson Racing) showed the same levels of filtration. Both performed poorly compared to the fiberous or paper filters (Napa, Baldwin, and Mazda).
