Air filter recommendation

I tried Mahle for my 996 with no problem at all. I change it every second or third oil change.

Currently I'm using the Porsche Brand because I got engine light on with some codes directing me to MAF sensor according with some post I read here, so I clean the aircleaner, throttle body, MAF and replace air filter Porsche Brand. so far no problem at all.

There are some post here related to K&N filter compliant of possible damage to the MAF, no sure well but you can search it.

I use the BMC filter and the K & N oiling

kit. No problem. Just wrap the filter in newspapers

after oiling for a few days before putting it in the car.

A lot of people have trouble with oiled air filters, and a lot do not. I go OEM and do not believe the aftermarket filters are worth the possible risk in a MAF engine. I do use K&N in my 914.
