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