K&N filters has an on-site composite department which builds hand-laid carbon fiber components ranging from air filter bases to custom dragster air scoops and racing air boxes. Curing is done in an autoclave where both mechanical and chemical processes ensure precision fitment and structural integrity.

K&N carbon fiber clamp-on universal air filter, RP-5168, uses an attractive hand-laid carbon fiber 5-inch diameter air filter top. The 7.5-inch diameter air filter base of RP-5168 is made with ultra-strong molded pliable rubber and incorporates a 6-inch inner diameter flange. The flange of RP-5168 is 1-inch in length and can be stretched up to 1/16-inch to fit in-between size inlets. This molded flange absorbs vibration and allows for secure attachment. At the heart of RP-5168 is the world famous K&N high flow cotton air filter media in a 6-inch height with 5/8-inch deep filter pleats.

The RP-5168 carbon fiber top air filter has been tested in the K&N in-house filtration lab to ensure maximum possible airflow achievable while providing guaranteed engine protection. Test results show that RP-5168 can flow over 350 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air at 1.5 inches of water pressure. To put it simply, RP-5168 flows plenty of air to be used in the K&N Air Intake System, 63-3079, which fits the 580 horsepower 6.2-liter supercharged V8 of the 2012-2014 Chevy Camaro ZL1.

K&N performs filtration efficiency testing following the ISO 5011 protocol to guarantee that our air filters will provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection. K&N RP-5168 was shown to have a 98.50% overall filtration efficiency when tested with ISO coarse test dust. Calling this test dust coarse is almost preposterous, as 22% of the dust is rated at 10 microns or less. To provide a visual, a human blood cell is typically between 6 and 8 microns across.

As with other K&N high-flow air filters, RP-5168, is washable and reusable using one of the K&N Recharger air filter service kits. Recharger, 99-5000, includes 12 fluid ounces of air filter cleaner and a 6.5 ounce aerosol bottle of air filter oil for quick and easy application.
