am thinking of getting some K&N airfilters for my CL55 AMG komprossor:p are they the best my indy said not to get them as the wax on them can clog up the mass air flow sensor but as mine has not got one as it uses a diffenert system is this ok to still use and does it make a difference:confused:

I've always used K&N airfilters in all my vehicles. I remember when I bought my CL it was advised NOT to use a K&N- I don't remember why (think it had something to do with the oil on the filter). Maybe someone with more technical knowledge can chime in.

On the K&N website they post the average HP gain if you use their filters in your car, for the TT600 no gain stated.

So I kept my factory filters.

I have seen posts of people over oiling there K&N filters and causing the MAS to foul. But no issues on my SL55 for the last four years. Get the cleaning kit as well as the Filters.
And as the OP mentioned. No Mass Air Sensor in the Supercharged 55 Motor so its not an issue even if you overoil the filter.
