I dont know, my previous SS drop in filter is almost clean all the time, even after 10K Km.

At the most wash with mama lemon to remove the surface dust.

K&N requires some maintenance to remove old and recoat fresh red oil. Some how, can see the dirt after 5-10K km.


Sorry, make you more confused.

SS Hurricane air filter from Avante after 50k.

The air pressure sucking upwards towards the air intake permanently warped the filter, letting all kinds of dirt passed through via the sides. The centre ridge also has crack lines 2 mm wide.

Hurricane SS filter doesn't keep the dust from entering engine, as many drivers testify that the filter is as clean as new after driving for so long. Where have the dust gone to? Into the engine lor

K&N is still the better choice. Yes it traps the dust. U can see the dust. Yes it's troublesome to clean. But it's a happy problem, coz it proves that the filter is working in keeping the dust from engine

K&N has been around for ages. Proven for so long.

Power? It's subjective la. But it definitely reduce the low end torque and it's better in high end torque, compared to stock paper filter. It's my butt.

By now you would have gotten the meaning that ss =stainless steel.

Its always a hard decision to make between better filtration for long term engine protection against better trottle response.

I am using stock air filter these few years.

Read that oiled sponge air filter is even better. But its not available for everyday cars.

For me I uses un-oiled K&N.


I have been driving for more than 30 years, had used all kind of accessories / tuner/s / amp and enhancers for car,

One day a truly experienced mechanic i know told me no car need no enhancer whatso-ever to increase speed / fuel-saver or any filter to increase air-flow / whatever you called it. Total waste of money, it hardly work, only psychologically in your brain.

A simple explanation was ; He even told me to remove the wiper-spray noozer filled with soapy water with plain water instead, his reason, the more we spray with soapy water, the wind-screen becomes more blurred & dirty.

Amazingly, it work best with clear water 20 years on, Not so sure about K&N filter, convincingly yes, but many motorist has doubts though

Thank you !

Camry is also very common in MY.
Parts are cheaper there.
You can get a few pieces more and replace them at shorter intervals.
