Ditch the K&N filter that came with my 3.3L?

Summer of 2010, I got a 'stock' 3.3L engine that came with a K&N filter(which in the 11K miles since then, I seviced the filter with the cleaner/oiler kit. It's not the cone type, just a standard flat K&N.

The place that did the conversion said if it were their car, they would remove it, and just put in a paper/factory air filter.

Any thoughts how viable this K&N setup is for a standard 3.3L turbo(1986), or anyone see any tangible benefits to running this present filter?

Thanks!

I think the general consensus on K@N drop ins, is that they offer no real performance gains, but do let in extra dirt. The stock paper filter will be fine
