Cadillac K&N Filters

re: K----&----N Filter for 94 SLS?  bruce nunnally  11:48 pm tuesday february 27, 2001

It depends.  The 92-97's basically use the same filter.  I pulled the K&N 33-2086 out of my 92 STS and installed it in my 96 STS and am happy with the fit.  

UPDATE:  after some consideration, I have also sealed the sides of the upper airbox (which contains the filter) with duct tape.  This should ensure that no amount of "flexing" of the airbox could cause air to enter the airbox around the filter seal.

Others have other comments:

In August Jay noted:

See web2.airmail.net/nunnally/sts/knfilterpns.htm for a listing of filter p/n by type of caddy and year.

I suppose if you want to be extra careful you should get the 33-2057 and trim to fit, which should ensure that there is no problem sealing.  

Good luck,
96 STS
