I've used K&N filters in quite a few vehicles, (have one under the SLP lid on the Hawk) and have never had a problem but have heard of many who have. The oil coats the MAF sensor as others have said. Be careful not to over oil it, and make sure it's nice and soaked in before you drive. The carb cleaner might be ok, but I would use electronics cleaner available in most parts stores now as that little bugger is quite sensitive. Hope to see you and little wing on the run next year!
