    you want to use 'light oiling' on the ribs, there isn't a wrong way to do it, as long as you don't flood the thing

    Yea just a light oil otherwise it will mess up your MAF. And I usually advise against K&N, a high quality paper filter will flow as well and filter more. But nothing wrong with a K&N since you already have one.
