    Does anyone know if you can use a filter for a TC on an Evo? the only difference I can see at the k&n site is that the Evo filter doesn't have an anti drain back valve.

    I believe the micron rating is different. Need to check with a knowledgible dealer. Key word is knowledgible.

    for give my spelling.

    As mentioned many times on this site with respect to this subject, stick with the HD oil filter on the TC engines. I have not found an aftermarket filter with the 5 micron rating and the design of the filter marketed by HD for this application. The 5 micron rating is essential to prevent fouling/plugging of the piston skirt spray heads used to help cooling with oil spray to the underside of the pistons.
