Blownville, read carefully what I stated I said it "DIDN'T" contain any red color in the oil. Also, I have many years of experience using K&N filters and have never over oiled.
Also, if I was to guess at the amount of oil I'd guess close to a quart if you add it all up.
You will never get that much from miniscule amount of oil you spray on your K&N.
Nope. I knew this would be a tough one for the books. Now we have 2 people with same stories in this forum with same problem happening to both with no explanation. At least not yet
