To keep it clean, I'd replace that new K&N with a good quality paper element air filter like from AC-Delco. K&N's air filters are about as good at filtering fine dust, silica, etc. out of the engine as a screen door is at keeping the dust from a Texas dust storm out. K&N's air filter really are very poor at filtering the air, really. I ran a K&N for a year or two before I figured out just how much dirt & dust it was passing. I went back to a paper element air filter & besides noticing no change in engine performance, I soon noticed the air intake was staying clean again. Lab tests ranked the K&N at the bottom so far as its ability to filter dirt & dust.
