Bosch says DO NOT use oiled air filters (like K&N) with MAF sensors. The oil carried in the incoming air eventually fouls the MAF, causing decrease in performance. You really don't need a dirty oiled filter - even if it is clean oil - feeding the MAF sensor . . .

I will post the SAE paper about this subject when I find it . . .

Never had issues and been using a K&N filter from the day I bought it back in 05.

Issue is when you over oil the filter. If you do it the right way you won't have issues.

I also clean my MAF sensor when I oil my filter.

I cleaned mine about a month ago with the MAF cleaner but it still looks like the frontside is dirty compared to the backside of the sensors.

So temped to LIGHTY swab it with a q-tip soaked with the cleaner but i don't want to chance breaking the fine little wires.

If i get brave/stupid enough to try i will report back with my results. Maybe i'll try it after a few more weekends of doubletime then a new one will only cost me just over a hour's wages (humblebrag )

----------

Can't find the edit button to add this above so i'll just say it seemed to make a bit of a difference, i'll clean it again next oilchange and k&n washing.
