anyone running K&N filters w/o throwing codes?

anyone using K&N filers and not throwing codes ? I'd really like a louder sounding intake but not interested in stop/starting to correct limp mode.

Which ones? The Typhoon or the drop in filters? There are many that
are getting errors with the Typhoon. No errors report on the panel
filters. The K&N panel filters are a very good choice.

I was talking about the drop in filters.

I have talked to a few people with the Typhoon, and they are throwing fault codes. Possibly software will take care of the codes.

It's debatable. The Typhoons need good cool airflow. On dynos
it's hard to get enough air to flush the hot air in the compartment
about the filters. Those that have it installed swear that there is
a benefit at highway speeds. Thus far I haven't seen real world
numbers (i.e. v-box, 1/4 times, or pre/post runs against another
car) showing benefits.

I should have specified the Typhoon. I'm attracted to the sound of the open air filter. I've used K&N's on about every vehicle I've owned. I'd read earlier that many persons were throwing codes after installing them.
