Your argument is so faulty its no wonder that you are on vortex.
No need to slam the Vortex. If you don't like it then go somewhere else.
I took out my K&N about 1000 miles ago because I noticed a fine powder on the filtered side of my intake which I found a little disconcerting (that's a whole other topic). Anyway, I don't think it has anyting to do with the smell.
Hopefully this weekend I'll be able to get a closer look at my engine to check for oil leaks. Dealer will charge me $75 just to look at my car. I just had it in there for a new ball joint, not eager to take it back just yet.
Thanks for the info
