Default K&N Air Filter - Good idea?

Back in my Jeep days I used to use a K&N air filter. When I switched over to my ole VW TDI, the Mass Air Flow Sensors would DIE shortly if used in conjunction with them...

Any issues with the Equinox and K & N air filters?

Drop ins are perfectly fine. I don't know about the older Nox but the newer will not benefit from a CAI...

I put a drop in K&N when we first got out 2010.

I have an 07 with a K&N filter in it for 3 years now. No problems whatsoever.

I put one in my '11. Bought a used one off eBay for super cheap. Not sure if it really improves HP or MPG, but I'll never have to buy another one!

I used one in my '11 and will now put one in my '14. I had a 02 VW TDI and I had one in it for 129000 miles. Never a problem.

If you want a cost efficient and bit of intake noise surely a drop in filter would be a good investment. But for hard core tuners and will surely give extra hp a Cold Air Intakes will fit your need for speed. All of these are bolt on into our equinox without any problem at all.
