    Surely it's pre-oiled?

    If it is not pre oiled, then add some, but make sure you add it to the downside only (where the air hits first), otherwise it might effect the afm

    You would think so wouldnt you but it says on the courtenay website that the filter is supplied with oil for the filters first oiling and subsiquent oiling after cleaning. Just dont really know how much to use and obviously dont want to spray too much on it.
