Hello,

Don't suppose anyone has instructions on how to replace the 2x engine air filters on a 4.2 TDI V8 engine?

I would like to replace the factory filters with some K&N's.

Thanks in advance, Alan

Stay away from K&N filters. They will let far too much dirt into your expensive engine. The oil used on the fabric may also bugger up your MAF sensor.

Unless your Treg spends all it's time on a racetrack, avoid K&N.

Hi Scuba,

Thanks for the note.

I just spoke to my local VW dealer's service department and they said that there are no issues with using K&N as long as they are cleaned etc...

If you are sticking with the drop ins, flip through my original link. It will show you how I modified my OEM boxes to get a lil more flow and sound. With the TDI, I imagine you will get a sweet turbo spool up sound! How I do miss that!!!
