Almost funny... “K&N filters still require that spray to capture the dirt more effectively” Followed by “That sensor is extremely sensitive to dirt.”

I do not think K&N filters are necessary on a van.

Normal common sense says change the filter when needed.

The only car I have had a K&N filter on was a 1965 Shelby AC Cobra that really needed to breathe.

If you have a Ford. Get the Five Star Tune. It does make a difference on shifting under load. I bought it and liked it.

A 1965 Shelby AC Cobra is not a "car". As you know, it's the most simultaneously beautiful and wicked Demon to ever travel a road on Earth.

P.S. I recently saw the new movie "Ford versus Ferrari" and it really brought back memories, such as:

1. I could have bought a new 427 Cobra roadster in the 1960's for around $6k.
2. I drove a 289 ci slab-sided Cobra roadster once - 110 MPH in 2nd gear before I gave up in fear.
3. I saw Carol Shelby in person up close way back when.
4. I saw some of the actual famous driver characters in the movie race Cobras in SCCA events at Laguna Seca decades ago. In one race, the winning Cobra roadster was an entire lap ahead of the rest of the field (which included many struggling Corvettes).
