Well, there are a hundred 'tests' done by lots of people that bash the filter and their arguments may be valid and they may also insignificant. I am an engineer with some time under my belt and a lot of my job is to determine what is significant as it applies to the real world, rather than the academic one. Is it significant that the K&N may let in 2% more dust into the engine? Maybe and maybe not.
For me, in anything from carbureted to fuel injected, I have never hand a filter related failure in anything that I ran K&N's in. I have several engine builds under my belts and a host of modifications to many vehicles including self-installs. So, as far as a 'real world' test, I have been conducting one for 20 years with success.
