The K&N is a bad choice if you paln to keep the engine running without premature wear. Its true you will gain all the power due to increased airflow but at the expense of proper air filtrartion. Most people who run the K&N filter do not oil the filter enough.

Usually if you can see daylight through the filter you can imagine the contaminants that can get through. Always look for the filter with more pleats and denser filter material(usually paper or some sort of fiber). I woudl stick with the factory filter.

By the way the Honda does not use a Mass air system. It uses Manifold absolute Pressure better known as a MAP system. The oil on the K&N will cause no ill effects whatsoever on the sensor.
