Air filter

Stick with factory "stock" or is it worth it to get a high flow aftermarket filter?

Read this and decide.

I don't remember if that's the same link I have bookmarked in my laptop, but there's a long article explaining how stock is better in the long run.

If stock is a paper filter, I would get a BMC replacement filter. You can clean and reuse a BMC filter.

I was told you can clean a stock air filter with brake cleaner and compressed air. I heard about that AFTER I installed my K&N

No, you cannot clean a paper filter that way.
