I have changed both my oil filter and air filter from (brand removed) to K&N. Why? Better quality, better protection, better performance. The Web site made the conversion easy, and the service has been excellent. This was a change for a Cub Cadet with a Command 26 Kohler engine.

We use K&N because they allow the bike to breath easy and they last forever. On shorter tracks, we don’t get much forced airflow the low restriction really helps. We’ve realized better torque curves and increased horsepower. Clean them up and put them right back in the bikes, race ready. Gary Medley - Race Director Team LTD Racing

I recently tested a K&N MX XStream Air Filiter on one of my Team Babbitt’s Kawasaki engines. After having been a foam filter advocate for most of my career, I was quite surprised to find a noticeable improvement in throttle response and horsepower. The additional airflow that the MX XStream filter provided was immediately obvious.

I commute from Cape Cod to Boston every day for work so mileage is very important to me (60 miles each way). I drive an 2009 Chrysler Sebring and before I put the filter in I was getting between 28 and 29.5 MPG I keep track every time I fill my tank which is a couple times a week. There has been no noticeable increase in fuel economy after 6 different occasions of filling my tank up. However I have noticed more pickup on the highway when passing cars so there has been a definite power increase. I'm satisfied and am considering upgrading the whole intake system to see if that will help with the fuel economy.

I installed K&N power filter in my Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTSI. It has an awesome engine sound, very beautiful and it helps in accelaration and pickup. So, I would like to thank you for making this filter.

I drive a 1986 Poniac Firebird and well needless to say shes my baby. I purchased a filter the day after I bought the vehicle 3.5 years ago. I have to say I love the filter and I'm never going back to (brand removed) Filters again. I will admit however that my only complaint is the sticker (I stuck it to my window with pride) that came with my filter wore out way before the filter did, although the sticker is faded, cracked and worn it's still is holding on the best it can.

I bought this for my 2006 350Z back in October 2011.  I could tell that it opened up my car.  This intake combined with (brand removed) duals really made an impact on performance.  I am satisfied.

I just installed a K&N air filter on a 2012 Volvo C70 T5. The results were impressive.

Smoother acceleration. Quicker, more responsive turbo boost. A solid 10% more power by feel, before vs. after.

Best news: It was averaging 22.1 mpg before the install. It is now averaging 24.4 mpg, six weeks later! Amazing!


Best 42 bucks I ever spent.

           I recently purchased a K&N cold-air intake for my 2005 3.5l Nissan Maxima.  I have been running (for over 6 years) a (brand removed) cold-air intake but tired of having to remove / re-install the OEM for SMOG inspections.  The K&N is CARB approved and was reasonably priced and was reasonably easy to install.  (I might suggest a common view angle to all pictures taken at the same vantage point in all customer related install papers……it would dramatically lessen having to re-orient for each install particular).
           Upon completion of the installation I took the car for a drive……anxious to test the new intake.  To my surprise……the response, acceleration, and shortness to top-end of the range significantly out shined the (brand removed).  After a few days I also note a 2 MPG increase around town and 4 MPG highway.  I can even detect the car’s desire to step into the torque/power band with minimal gas applied to the accelerator…..essentially simple driving and shifting will promote a step into that increased band!  I don’t know if it is the shortness of the tube or the location of the MAF, but whatever it is, I am absolutely impressed.
           I’m a 65 year old male and I do not dote on sticking my foot into the accelerator routinely.  I DO however, enjoy quick and lasting response during acceleration.  The K&N has shown itself to be a Star performer.  I can’t thank you enough.  My highest recommend going forward………

Installed a 77-1563KP on my 2011 Dodge Durango Citadel with Hemi. Has noticeable power increase and fuel mileage increase. Also the additional sound it makes under acceleration is great. Took approx. 30-40 mins to install. Love this product.

Who beats the EPA highway mileage claims?  I DO!  My Lexus LS 460L is rated 24 MPG highway.  I replaced my stock filters (2) with 2 K&N filters (33-2381) immediately upon getting my new car. I get between 26 and 29 MPG at 70-80 MPH, that's 8.5% to 17% better mileage than the car is rated to get. Driving straight highway speeds in West Texas where the speed limit on the interstate is 80 MPH, I achieved nearly 30 MPG (maybe even traveling slightly over the limit...).  At a steady 65MPH, I get nearly 30 MPG.  The sound is great and I get great engine response from an already superior engine.  I just cleaned my filters one year after installation - one year!  I run K&N in all my family's cars and trucks.

Great service and customer support. I had a K&N air filter in a Chevy truck that I sold.  Because the filter would fit in the replacement Chevy pickup I transferred it to the new truck.  I needed a decal to advise service techs not to discard the filter, but could not find a local dealer with decals.  After inquiring at head office as to how I could get a new decal, they quickly shipped me a decal pack at no charge.  There is actually one company out there that believes in customer satisfaction.  Thanks.

Just wanted to say a huge thank you to K&N.  We purchased a used vehicle that was registered in Texas and in order to get it registered in California we had to get it smogged.  There was no E.O. decal so we contacted K&N on a Thursday, they sent us an email with instructions on how to receive a replacement decal, and we received the replacement decal Friday, the very next day, enabling us to get the car smogged and registered.  The people at K&N were extremely helpful and so quick to respond and there was absolutely no charge for this decal.  Thank you again K&N!

I would like to take the time and let you guys know how much I LOVE my K&N. I went with a 57 series cold air intake for my 5.9L Cummins and it has dramatically improved air flow to the turbo. Seemed to just turn the truck into something else!!! It ran better, got better fuel economy and just all around very good system. My dad who has a 2009 Ford F-150 with a 5.4L Triton was asking me about it and I told him it changes the vehicle and the way it acted but in a good way. So he took a gamble and got a cold air intake for his and he told me that he loves it! He took it back to the dealership he bought it from and took the salesman who sold it to him for a ride. All the salesman had to say was what did you do to this thing? That is what kinda of gains he got!!!  I had called customer service with a question and I expected the run of the mill customer service, but to my surprise they had went above and beyond what I was expecting! Very happy and satisfied with the product and service. Would definitely recommend to anyone out there.

I have to say at first I was not to sure in buying this air intake but after I give them a call and told me all about it I give it a try and wow it was not to hard to install. It took me about 60 min. I took my time to do it right and after I was done I give it a test drive. Wow my engine sounds great runs better the air intake is not loud and looks great. I have to say I give it A+++. It's the best $253.00 I have spent. It's not cheap but you get what you pay for in this case quality and high performance. It's worth it. I highly recommend it plus there 100% satisfaction guaranteed, nothing to lose. Keep in mind that you must have your car up to date with spark plugs good oil and clean your fuel system to get the best results. The performance you will get it's great but if you do this other small things I'm telling you it will show the difference right away.

I purchased the 77 Series for my Dodge Ram 1500. Easy installation. The performance is out this world. More torque and horsepower and really increased the sound of my truck. The extra airflow makes aggressive sound. If you drive slower you will be able to see the fuel savings.  GREAT PRODUCT!! I will tell my friends and everyone.

I installed a 33-2207 air filter in my 2003 Lincoln Aviator.  I immediately noticed a difference in the responsiveness and performance.  After approximately 1 month of use, I have recorded a consistent fuel mileage increase of 2 MPG on the highway and about 1 MPG in the city.  With fuel prices where they are at in the beginning of 2012, this was definitely a worthwhile investment.

I have also purchased a K&N air filter for my Mustang GT.  I will add a review for it once I have had an opportunity to compare the fuel mileage and performance against the stock air filter.  I suspect it will be notable.

Thank you, K&N!

I installed the 77-2581 Kit on my 2011 F-150 5.0 XLT truck and it only took 45 minutes to install. The instructions are very clear. You can feel the difference on the first road test:
1- More power
2- Un fatastic power sound on accelaration

I have it installed since several days and concerning Fuel economy it's a bit too soon, but already it seems be good.

It's a great product and I'm very happy to have choosen K&N

Bought a K&N air intake for my 1995 5.7L Silverado approx 7 yrs ago.  Cleaned filter last week and noticed it was deteriorating in a couple of places.  Got in touch with K&N via email and after some info exchanged about my vehicle they have me a new filter in the mail on its way.  Excellent customer service from K&N in a time when most place's customer service dept. is pathetic.  Couldn't be more pleased or satisfied.  I will definetly continue to be a K&N customer for years to come!

To whom it may concern,
   I would just like to give a compliment not only to K&N but to Thomas Walden a Product Specialist with your company on the great customer service provided by him.  I recently had to replace both my front and back windows on my 2009 dodge ram due to rocks out here in Wyoming. The Wind shot a rock so fast that it hit the back window and shattered it. So when the windows were replaced they could not save my K&N stickers.
   So I sent an Email on April 8th and on April 9th Mr. Walden had replied and told me that he had a new set of stickers on the way to me free of charge. That is awesome customer service and he has helped make a LIFE LONG CUSTOMER out of me for K&N products. I now know why K&N is recommended by many in the performance world. It's not just for the awesome products but because of the team members you have like Thomas Walden who are representing your company everyday!!

Thank you!!

I have a 2000 Chevy Suburban that we purchased years ago from a local dealership here in Merced. The vehicle came with a K&N system, But didn't have the Cal. exemption decal. I contacted the K&N and Product Specialist Richard Wotring emailed me the proper form to fill out with the instructions that he needed to process my request.

I sent this form along with the necessary photos to Mr. Wotring and within a few days I had a C.A.R.B. decal and a new air filter on my vehicle.

I can honestly say that Mr. Wotring & the K&N staff have been very patient with me as I was asking all kinds of questions in regards to my request. I will continue to use K&N products in all my vehicles from now on.

Thank you K&N staff for all your assistance in getting the decal to me so that I can get my vehicle smogged without any problems.

I have a 1975 VW Scirocco that I have owned for 32 years which is a daily driver. After 30+ years of excellent service the K&N Air Filter is starting to show signs of wear. The rubber lip seal is showing signs of deterioration. I called K&N Customer Service and they are very happy to send me a replacement free of charge. I have used K&N products in all my vehicles and will continue to do so.

I needed help replacing a missing CARB sticker for an intake to smog my vehicle, and I spoke to Lisa Kubo on the phone who was very pleasant and knowledgeable. She assisted me in getting the proper information together via email, responded very quickly, even from out of the office, and sent my sticker out the same day. She was also nice enough to supply me with information the very next morning so that I could smog my vehicle that day, and I'm sure that had I asked or needed it she would have had it to me within the hour. Very happy with your products and especially your customer service. My vehicle passed smog with flying colors. Thanks again Lisa for making my day!

I purchased a K&N air filter 9 years ago and i haven't any problems with the filter wearing out or breaking down with age. I want to say thank you for making the red oil into an aerosol, it's much faster to apply to the air filter.

I bought a K&N Intake for my 2006 Nissan Altima SE and after a couple months I had some engine trouble (NOT related to the air intake!).  The dealership noted on my service receipt that a fitting was broken on my K&N and they would fix it for $159.00.  I emailed K&N and within 24 hours they responded and shipped the replacement fitting FREE OF CHARGE.  This company makes great products and their customer service is EXCELLENT.  I would recommend purchasing from K&N, not only for their superior quality products, but also their support during and after the sale.

I recently purchased a Ford F-150 that I bought off of a private seller.  He had a K & N cold air intake that he had separate from the truck that I decided to install last weekend.  I  got to the step where I had to attach the rubber grommet to the air flow sensor and realized I did not have it.  I called James up in customer service, not knowing if I was going to have to pay for a 5 cent part or not, he willingly got my address and is sending me out the part free of charge.  I have bought cold air intakes from K & N in the past, and because of this simple act, you guys here gained my respect tremendously and if I, or anyone else is looking for an air filter I will be sure to name drop your company.  A five cent part can go a long way.  Thanks.

This intake for our 4Runner was easier to install than I first thought. Though the directions for the hose re-installation was a little touch and go, it worked out the first time around. The placement of the mass air sensor seems to put a little tension on the wire harness, but was able to move the intake around to give it more slack.

I love the sound it makes under acceleration, gives the car a more V-8 sounding exhaust. The throttle response is more immediate and responsive. This intake is great addition to the 4Runner.

Thanks,

I have a couple of K&N Intake systems on a couple of my 8 vehicles.  My oldest installation (GMC Suburban)has about 165,000 on it.  I had the vehicle packed for a long trip pulling a trailer, and as I cleaned the air filter, I noticed the rubber adapter that conects the filter to the intake tube was badly split open.  I needed a quick replacement part and called your service desk (spoke with a lady named Dora Lewis) at just before 5 p.m. your time.   I told them I would be willing to pay for overnight shipping and they took my information and we disconnected before I could pay for anything.  The next day my part arrived and as I was just finishing installing it I got a follow up call from your service department asking if my part had arrived.   I was stunned by the great service you gave me.  I am a V.P. for a nationwide company and my wife is a bank officer.  We both have many business dealings and I cannot remember ever recieving this kind of stellar service.  I will talk you up!  Thank you!

Hi K&N
I have a Kawasaki KR150, it's a 2 stroke little beast machine with an awesome stock power but I just wanted to get more.Then I ordered one from one of your authorized dealer here, RU-0800 type,well it's way much bigger for my 28 carb, but you guys said that there's no problem installing a bigger ones instead which has advantages in a longer cleaning interval...the part arrived, installed the air filter, adjusted the jetting and it is awesome..gives much, a way much better throttle response and she accelerates like crazy.

K&N air filter..simply the best air filter in the world!!

Dear K&N,

Recently, I purchased a new Kawasaki ZX-10R. As usual for any vehicle, I also purchased the suitable K&N filter. However, instead of immediately installing it, I left it on the shelf and more-or-less forgot about it.

Now, the bike has approximately 2900 miles on it and it is suffering from lower than expected power output and piston blowby. I attribute this to the paper air filter that came in the bike.

I believe the problem is, as the paper filter initially blocks the entry of dirt into the engine, the combination of vacuum acting on the filter, vibration from the motorcycle's engine and the lack of a chemical adhesive (filter oil) allow dirt particles to eventually pass through the filter.

At this time, I sent the bike to the dealer for compression testing to verify the reduced performance.

When I get the bike back, the first thing I'm going to do is to install the K&N filter.

BTW, my other motorcycle, a Buell 1125R, is running perfect after 5K miles as I installed a K&N filter immediately after purchasing it.

I put this performance air intake in my 1999 Buick Regal GS 3.8L. The throttle responce was much better, it makes my supercharger sound better when it kicks on and makes my engine bay look better. My only complaint is that the instructions told me the wrong socket size on mulitple nuts and bolts. Other than that the intake made a noticable difference in power and was well worth the cost.

Have and will use K&N filters in all of my cars, trucks and Hot Rods that I work with. I bought a 2010 Chevy with 29,000 miles on it, when I checked the mileage it was bad, checked air filter and it was dirty, replaced it with a K&N air filter and drove it a while then checked mileage again there was a big improvement. Thanks K&N
