Mate, I dont like K&N I live in Aus and the dust just passes straight through them. I use a Pro Design Filter (sponge) with the pre-filter back up. In Aus we have the finest dust on Earth and it dosent get past a Pro Design. Man the standard Filter is fine as long as its oiled properly.

Pretty much if you aren't going to be in dusty areas, then the KN is fine, you can also get a prefilter-outerwear as a bunch of people do and they don't have problems. A lot of people here use Uni though, which is just like stock but allows more air to flow and has a better cage. Just be sure to clean it all the time and oil it properly, no matter what you get.

I don't know, you have never been through a Nevada silt bed, they keep me up at night when I think about them! Stuff is like water, I have actually had the silt "splash" over me. Silt beds are the work of the devil! haha

Any heavy dust I would recomend a foam filter. The only place I would run a K&N is in the dunes, maybe.
