Cleaning BBK filter

so are these filters washable or do they need oil like a K&N does?

Re: Cleaning BBK filter

I would assume they are very similar to the K&N filter, and thus, you would need to wash them, and use the K&N oiling kit.

Assumption is the mother of all **** ups....

I would check their web site and find out if they require oil or not. I know not all filters require oil so you will definitely want to make sure before you oil it.


EDIT: A quick internet search has turned up that the BBK filter is the same style as the K&N...and in fact turned up a couple other threads asking the same question as yours. You will need to oil it after you wash it out.

*sigh* ok ok. I have an unidentified filter on my car... the guy I bought it from had a K&N oiling kit in the car, so I'm assuming I can oil it, but I have no idea. I really hate it, because I can't remove it through the fenderwell hole in the engine bay. I'm seriously debating getting a new filter because of it.

Re: Cleaning BBK filter

i have the BBK CAI and I searched for whether or not I needed to oil it also. I found out that yes you need to oil it and that the K&N recharge kit is alright to use. I've already done it to mine, and nothing is wrong with it.

Re: Cleaning BBK filter

thanks for the info. i actually sent an email to bbk the other day and they sent me a link showing how to clean it with the K&N recharge kit. just wondering about how long the process takes? seems like an all day project to me letting it dry and all.

Re: Cleaning BBK filter

I wasn't too worried about getting it dry real quickly. Its not an all day thing. Truth is- it only took like 2 hrs total. Air drying it a *****. I don't think mine was totally dry before I put the oil on it since I had to go out somewhere.
Mine looked like it was still wet, but in reality it was just cleaner. lol

Re: Cleaning BBK filter

the instructions say let it dry on it's own but i don't see how that could hurt anything.

Re: Cleaning BBK filter

A leave blower type device will also help dry it quick as well as blowing out any remaining debris.

Re: Cleaning BBK filter

a leaf blower is a little excessive. now that i look back i should have used a hair dryer. Its got that cold air setting. Couldn't hurt.

Re: Cleaning BBK filter

well i got it clean. took about all day but the car runs better now. next time i'll buy another filter for it and then clean the old one and put it in the box so i don't have to worry about waiting.
