    True, is your filter new?

    I had a K&N brand new with original set-up and used to go through loads of AFMs, Changed to 2.2 setup with 2nd hand dried up filter and not had a problem with it in months now (touch wood)

    i presume you buying GM afm's? not aftermarket jobbies.
    not bloody cheap if your going through lots of em...there £100+ last time i looked!!
    i cant see why you would be going through them other than them being crappy afms.guess somebody might have an answer...unless your mistaking the afm's going for somthing else further down the line..

    Doesn't help but I feel your pain. Exactly the same thing keeps happening to me and I've still not got to the bottom of it.
