K&N Engineering Introduces XStream™ Universal Clamp-On Air Filters

     Printer Image
 
RIVERSIDE, CA With a growing market demand for higher-flowing universal clamp-on round and tapered filters, K&N has responded by applying its powerful XStream technology to these popular filters. Now air can be drawn directly through the XStream top, straight into the intake track. The increase in airflow is dramatic. Unlike clamp-on filters that feature an inverted cone-style top that can obstruct airflow through the side pleats, the K&N XStream RX adds directional flow filter surface area without restricting the existing filter area.

Like all K&N FilterChargers®, the XStream RX is constructed of a pleated sandwich of high quality cotton sandwiched between two layers of epoxy-coated aluminum wire mesh, then treated with a specially-formulated oil – the result is a filter that exceeds the airflow capabilities of replacement-style disposable filters by up to 50 percent. In fact, in rigorous testing such as SAE's J726, K&N FilterChargers® have achieved an overall efficiency rating of up to 99%.

Of course the XStream RX is washable and reusable with K&N's recharger filter service kit (sold separately). A feature sure to be embraced by the custom crowd is the central mounting hole in the XStream top, which allows the filter to easily attach to a filter support bracket. Available in 2-7/16 to 3-13/16-inch clamp-on mounting diameters, and straight-round or tapered conical styles, RX filters are available to fit a variety of custom applications and are ideal filters for sport compact intake systems (especially those not already equipped with a quality K&N Filter).
