K&N Replacement Air Filter 33-2104

By increasing the flow of air, K&N replacement air filters are designed to give better throttle response and improved torque at all points of your Honda engine’s operating range.

This pair of Honda engines is reminiscent of the television infomercials where the announcers read “but wait, there’s more.” Both the Honda D and K engines had long service lives in a surprising variety of vehicles, with any number of versions to suit the applications. Clearly, not only were they well designed but ongoing R&D kept their performance at the level of newer engines. What’s surprising (or maybe not) is that all these applications utilize the same K&N replacement air filter 33-2104.

The Honda D series inline four cylinder engine was installed in a number of different of models, most commonly the Honda Civic, CRX, and the first-gen Acura Integra between 1984 and 2005. Engine displacement ranges between 1.2 and 1.7 liters. The D Series engine was constructed as either SOHC or DOHC, and was at times fitted with Honda’s VTEC variable valve timing system.

K&N Replacement Air Filter Box

Everything you need to install a K&N replacement air filter in your Honda is in the box.

The Honda K series engine is also an inline four cylinder engine introduced in 2001. The K series engines were equipped with dual overhead camshafts and utilized roller rockers to reduce friction. The engines use coil-on-plug ignition for each spark plug. This eliminates the need for a conventional distributor in favor of allowing the ECU to control ignition timing based on engine sensor inputs. Two versions of the Honda i-VTEC system have been used on the K series engine, one optimized for fuel economy, the other performance.

While Honda engines are well-known for producing power, there’s still an opportunity to add more airflow. That’s why K&N has developed the 33-2104 automotive replacement air filter for many Honda cars. The K&N filter provides an increase of up to 50% more air flow to the engine. By increasing the flow of air, it is designed to be a more responsive throttle and improved torque at all points of your Honda engine’s operating range.

The reason for the increased airflow through K&N air filters is that they’re manufactured from multiple layers of oiled cotton filter media, which also offers excellent filtration characteristics. Often OEM and less-expensive filters are made from more restrictive paper media, which can quickly clog and actually limit the output potential of the engine.

And once you’ve installed your K&N 33-2104 air filter you’ve eliminated the need to purchase and replace paper filters for the life of your Honda. The only maintenance needed is a service you can do yourself in just a short time. At up to 50,000 miles or 80,000 kilometers (depending on your driving conditions) clean and re-oil your air filter with a K&N air filter cleaning kit, returning it to like-new condition. Your one K&N air filter is designed to last for the lifetime of your vehicle, which K&N guarantees will perform for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles without requiring replacement.
