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.

Worth the money!! This was easy to install. Noticed better acceleration right away. Seem to get better gas mileage too. Definitely recommended and worth the price. ...more info
First-time K&N Air Filter User Bought this because I saw it in the local auto supply store and liked the concept of long-term use and higher airflow. Of course, I bought it on [...] because the price was about $[...] cheaper!!!!
Installed in 5 minutes, and have observed no noticable change in how the engine operates, good or bad. So that's a good thing to me.
I keep my cars for many years and miles; put on about 25,000 miles per year. I expect to more than get my money's worth from this product....more info
Works great! I've used K&N products in the past on my other Hondas, a 1997 Civic EX and a 1999 Civic Si. I now drive a Honda Accord Coupe EX V6 with the 6-speed manual transmission.
The primary reason I bought this filter is that I knew I would get better gas mileage than with the stock air filter. I was right! Also noted is better throttle response...perhaps a few extra horsepower (but I doubt it).
I bought this filter right before a 1400 mile road trip. My car is rated at 20mpg city/30mpg highway. On this trip I got 34 mpg highway, with the A/C on, traveling at 75mph the whole time.
Also a benefit is the long life of this filter and the simple maintenance.
The price on Amazon was the cheapest BY FAR of any local auto parts store. None of the local stores carried this filter in stock and had to order it. Amazon had it in stock and was shipped promptly.
Looking for improved gas milage and better throttle response? This is a good product for you....more info
