The Original High-Flow Air Filter. Since 1969 K&N Engineering has been designing, manufacturing, and enhancing High-Flow Air Filters for the automotive and motorcycle enthusiast interested in maximizing horsepower and acceleration. Since our humble beginnings we have designed and manufactured over 2,400 High-Flow Air Filters to fit most modern passenger vehicles and over 500 High-Flow Air Intake Systems to fit vehicles driven by enthusiast minded drivers. We not only have more applications than any other manufacturer of similar product, we invented the High-Flow category and the High-Flow Technology that supports it. K&N also makes thousands of racing and specialty type air filters and is the only air filter used at the Indianapolis 500 Race?. The K&N FilterCharger? air filter is designed to achieve high, virtually unrestricted air flow while maintaining filtration levels critical to ensure long engine life. Our automotive OE (original equipment) replacement air filters generally add 1-4 horsepower. The secret to our success lies in the unique characteristics of our filter medium that was originally developed by K&N all those years ago in the dust, sweat and tears of desert motocross racing. We just wanted to win races and stumbled on a cotton filtration technology destined to be great. Our high flow cotton gauze air filter is washable, reusable and built to last for the life of an automotive or motorcycle engine. K&N air filters consist of four to six sheets of cotton gauze layered between two sheets of aluminum wire mesh. This media is then pleated and oiled to enhance its filtering capabilities and overall performance. K&N Air Filters were created for an environment requiring maximum horsepower and enhanced acceleration in addition to protection from the dirt and dust of off-road racing. The result is an air filter that allows dramatically more air into an engine, is washable and reusable, and will protect your vehicle.
A high-flow, washable filter that delivers the maximum amount of air possible into your engine while providing superior filtering
Multiple layers of cotton fabric sandwiched between pleated aluminum screen capture airborne dirt particles
Improves horsepower and torque
Emission legal in all 50 states, will not void manufacturer's warranty
Filters can be cleaned over and over, and are backed by a million mile limited warranty
very good filter If you are looking for a simple drop in car air filter, K&N filters are good value. They are more expensive than paper filters, but you get your money's worth in not having to replace them every 10,000 miles and you get cleaner airflow and a slight power bump with the K&N. Only thing better would be a full air intake system....more info
