Default pre charger or foam pre-cleaner for K&n Universal filter

hey fellas

i have a K&N RX-4730 X-Stream, it has done good in term's of performance.
being that we have very dusty roads after the rain & i don't want to fit back the OE filter.

was planning to fit in a pre charger or a foam pre-cleaner .
Has any one of you got it fitted in your universal filers?
how much of performance drop can i expect after fitting one of these,
will this really help in filtration or should i go back to stock?

thanks

Do you want to use the prefilter to avoid dirting it or to avoid water splashes?

i wanna use the prefilter to avoid my car breathing excessive dirt.

man if ya following a vehicle after the rain dried up mud/dirt is thrown all around.
i got into a stupid habit of slamming the clutch & letting the car roll as soon i spot dust flying on the tarmac, shouldn't be doing that i guess!

Is the filter installed under the bumper? If not wash and reoil regurlarly and change the engine oil at regular intervals. Shouldn't be a problem. Should be cheaper than a precharger in the long run.

well the universal filter is installed almost in the same place were the stock filter box used to be.
i am kinda skeptic abut the dusty conditions, the polyester based per-charger is costing nearly 950bucks & i am sure the foam might be a little cheaper, will buy them both.
run both of them for near 1k kms & let you all know.

thanks mate.

if the filter is in the exact place as the stock airbox..i see no reason why mud/water would splash on it.i reckon you carry out regular cleaning of the filter.

hmm well k&n is really good in filtration of dust particles, but now after the rains it is really really dusty, well my daily use road is.
