I think its more psychological but the car seems to be breathing better. Not much of a difference though but atleast the filter looks clean

Thanks Rishi, that pretty much covered it all i guess.

My cleaner is a spray but the oil if not in aerosol form. For people having oil in a bottle with a lont tip, you should be careful not to pour too much oil. Pour the oil horisontall on the filter from left to right. Never twice on the same fold.

Look in the light to see if you have missed any spots. Fill up loose spots, keep to drain excess oil.

you should be good to go now.

I cleaned my optra's KnN today, was very very dirty, so dirty after just 20000kms that i ended up using 2/3rd of the Cleaning Spray. Took almost a hour and a half.

Deduce that it is an mpfi zen. Try to keep the dirty side outwards. Although after cleaning it won't really matter.

??? The mesh is irregular and the cotton does have fine holes. Please post pics so that we can have a clearer picture.

That doesn't sound right at all. Particularly if these 'fine holes' are at irregular spacing.

If washed by high pressure things do not sound good.

Payam , If it was washed using a pressure hose then I dont think there is a chance of your filter surviving.. In other case clean it and reoil it and see if you can find some visible damage to the mesh.
