I am planning to place an order on a K&N replacement air filter that I saw in 4 Wheel Online. Is K&N a reliable brand?

I have used K&N air filters for years. I originally used them in performance applications. They filtered well and provided unrestricted airflow. Lately I have used them with my Econo Box Toyota. The mpg improved about 5 mpg with its use. Down side is washing, drying and then re-oiling the filter element. I save a paper air filter to use when I am servicing the K&N unit. The K&N must be totally dry before you coat the surface with their recommended oil. I service the filter at 5000 miles for optimum performance. I'm sure the K&N will work great in your ELR and unless your in extreme conditions, sand, dust or other particulates, you can probably extend beyond 5000 miles.
