Thanks for your post regarding the leaking K&N oil filter. I'll post a update when I get one from them. The only thing I could see making it fail that way is a integrality issue due to the welded stamped metal bolt they put on the end.
i found on of your old post about adding an external filter for your transmission. The last post was last year and it doesnt say if you ever did the install. Did you decide against it? Just wondering, Im thinking about doing the same thing.
