- What should I use to clean my K&N Filter? I have removed the
filter and use an air compressor to blow the dust out of it. (I was
just guessing with this method.) How often and how much oil? What
color should the filter be after adding the oil?
Randy Sasai cl(r...@tses.com)
K&N makes a spray that you can spray onto the filter and then rinse
it off in a sink and let it dry, and oil it before sticking it back
in the car. K&N also makes an oil spray that you are supposed to
spray on the filter before sticking it back in the car. I have
never heard of anyone using any other kind of oil on the filters.
Both of these sprays are available from Stillen, as well as most
any performance shop. Trak Auto might even sell it.

I seem to remember that K&N recommends against using compressed air
or anything else that could make a hole in the cotton. They
reommend to use normal pressure (a flowing tap is about all) water
tap. No hoses with attachments for pressured streams or anything
like that. Just water and the filter cleaner/filter oil
combination. The red K&N oil should colour the filter to a deep
red once it has been oiled properly.
- What is a POP? You guys keep mentioning it but I haven't seen a
post that really explains what it is.

P.O.P. is a trademark name from Jim Wolf Technology, it means
Performance Optimized Products. It is not the same as Stillen's
Hi-Flow intake, but the design between the two are the
same. Stillen copied JWT's POP Charger.
- What is the extra wire that is screwed on to the air box on the
side closest to the nose [on a 200SX]. When I put in the POP their is
no place to put this, is it still okay? It looks like it leads to the

That wire is a temperature sensor. Once you've installed the POP,
you will have to place that sensor in the vicinity of the POP, and
you should have no problems. However, if you unplug the sensor,
your Check Engine light will come on, courtesy of ODB II. Hope
- Just a question for current owners of the JWT POP charger. Does it
increse the noise level in the vehicle?
Jason Garrett Young (j...@vt.edu)
Yes, but it is a lovely noise, and you only hear it when you stand
on the gas above 3.3k.
- Does anyone know if the SE-R and the G-20 use the same air
Wayne Cox (w...@erinet.com)
I've got a full K&N catalog, and it lists a 1995 (the latest G20
listing it's got) G20 replacement as a 33-2031-1. That's the same
as the SE-R/NX, and lots of other Nissans in the last several
