Top Tip

if you do make sure you wash the oil off first, effects the MAF sensors which will give you a misfire.

just had a nightmare with this problem 250 in MAF sensors alone!

Oily MAFs are definately a problem with oiled air filters. If you still have the old MAFs try cleaning them with a very specific MAF cleaner spray. Available at most car parts locations.
They might be fine.

the filters come pre oiled so you need to either wash them in hot soapy water and leave them to dry over night before fitting or go with dry filters

I did this method last week. Way better than removing all the torx screws. Thanks
