Christmas Comes Early for Million Mile Truck Driver Carl Judice
RIVERSIDE, CA – December 22, 2006
– K&N Engineering, maker of the World’s Best Air Filters, today announced it has awarded Carl Judice with a new 2007 Chevy Silverado pick-up truck to replace his
former million-mile plus truck
he has been driving since 1998. K&N Engineering representatives delivered Judice’s new truck to him yesterday in his hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana. Judice’s prior truck, a 1998 Chevy Silverado, used the same, single K&N High-Flow Air Filter for over a million miles, saving an estimated $1,800 in replacement air filters. K&N Engineering offers a Million Mile limited warranty on its over the road air filter line as a proof point to the product line’s longevity and durability.

“I have never had the truck's engine rebuilt and the cylinder head has never been removed in over a million miles,” said Carl Judice, owner of the now famous million mile truck. "I've cleaned the K&N air filter maybe 10 to 12 times in the million miles. When I open the cover and it’s dirty, I clean it,” Judice added, “I want to thank K&N for the new truck and the new air filter. After going a million miles on my original K&N, I would never risk running my truck on any other air filter. It’s the oil on the K&N that traps the dirt and keeps it out of the engine.”

K&N’s air filters help cars run better by using multiple layers of cotton gauze material that is treated with a tacking agent to protect the engine for the lifetime of any road going car or truck. Much like a spider’s web, the filter allows for superior air flow through the grid-like weave of the cotton fabric. Because the oil-treated cotton is sticky like a spider’s web, the filter is able to trap and hold contaminants safely in suspension and continue working long after a conventional air filter would have needed to be discarded. This technology, called “depth loading,” is what makes a K&N High-Flow air filter fundamentally different from paper and other pulp based air filters commonly found in cars and trucks that clog as the filter is used and require frequent service intervals.
K&N air filters are available for thousands of different vehicle applications including most cars, trucks, and motorcycles. K&N’s proven development and design methodology relies on achieving the “Sweet Spot” among the following four engineering attributes: Air Flow, Filtration Efficiency, Dirt Retention, and Durability – each of which is carefully tested and fine tuned in K&N’s multi-million dollar on site testing laboratories.
“K&N is pleased to provide Carl with this truck in honor of his ability to put our famous Million Mile air filter to the test. Customers like Carl make our jobs easier – he’s a regular guy with a regular truck wanting a product that will work in the long-haul,” said Steve Rogers, K&N Engineering’s CEO.
