Yes you will get a LOT more silica ( sand) in your oil. I had a vehicle that I did oil analysis on religiously and without the K&N silica was normal, with it silica shot up. took the K&N out and silica went back to normal.

Here's some good info....

My experience with the K&N in a 350 Chev. - they are a PITA to clean and oil, AND I noticed no change in performance.
