Hi Friends I'm from Banglore. I have a big crush on bikes.... I go often to the races and I heard about these K&N filters. My friend got one for his Apache RTR 180. I have seen and observed the perfomance and sound of the vehicle ... It's amazing. I decided to buy a K&N air filter (part BA-2201) for my Pulsar 150 (2011) . I put it on my bike.. now my bike's sound is roaring and perfomance has also increased :D

Thanks to K&N

Purchased the k&n drop in air filter for my new 2011 dodge avenger with the 3.6L engine.  Dyno'd my car with both the stock air filter and the k&n air filter back to back...  The results showed a 7 hp gain at 5400 rpm and a 7 lb/ft gain at 4000 rpm.  The hype, to me, is now substantial.  K&N filters alone can improve the performance of a vehicle.

I was looking for an increase in pick up in my Maruti Suzuki Baleno and one of my friends suggested I install the K&N Air Filter and boy did it make difference to my pick up. The car has become Super Quick now and the Acceleration super Smooth. It easily touches 100 in no time, a must have for people who are looking for more power in their car along with an increase in mileage , Thanks to K&N for this Wonderful Product!

Just installed the new filter in my bike and with the work I had done on the exhaust my bike went from a 1600 slugish machine to finaly something with some grunt.

Your filters were the best filters ever found and the filter prices were satisfactory.
The filtering performance of the filter is also fine.

Have been a long time user of K & N drop in filters and recently purchased a 2011 Camaro SS as a toy for me and was researching a cold air intake for it. Chose the Typhoon for the performance and the looks it gives to the engine compartment. Box arrived and while unpacking it noticed that the intake tube was missing. Called customer service for the first time expecting to have issues but again was surprised by the best service from Able!!!! This is another reason I will only use and recommend K&N!!!! They have the best people working for them and you don't go through a phone tree to actually talk to a person. LOVE THIS COMPANY!!!!

I run K & N air filters on just about everything I have with wheels, bikes, SUV, trucks, van, have done for years. I just added a K & N 57-2529-1 FIPK setup to my 2001 Ford Ranger Edge, this is my third FIPK for my Rangers, also have a 1996 2.3 4 banger and a 1998 3.0 V6. They are great add ons and make quite a difference to performance etc, but what makes them even better is how easy they are to install due to their design and the documentation. It took me less than an hour to fit the latest one, biggest problem was getting the OEM filter box off.
I do have one regret, you still have not made an FIPK for my 2003 Escape with the 3.0 V6, why is this? I think its a great candidate.
Keep up the good work.

I bought my car on August 4th 2008, and 4 days later my uncle gave me this K&N filter, along with some other accessories, and to this day I swear by K&N filters. Have to say, with my custom Short Ram intake and K&N drop in, it makes a bit more power over stock, and has a great sound when I'm pressing on the gas, flying down the highway,

My car is a 1994 Ford Taurus with the 3.0 OHV V6. 145 HP stock, est 150+ currently.

Depuis 10 ans, j'achète des filtres K&N. À chaque nouveau véhicule que j'achète, je dois absolument mettre un filtre K&N dans mon véhicule. C'est le meilleur achat que j'ai fait dans le produit automobile. Présentement, j'ai une Acura CSX-S et j'ai vraiment rendu mon auto efficace avec ce produit. De plus, cela permet d'entendre la sonorité du moteur du K20Z3.

Je vous recommande les produits K&N!

I just wanted to take a second and say thank you for participating in the NHRA contingency program in 2011.  I know times are difficult and money is tighter than ever, so it takes quite a commitment on K&N’s part to fund the contingency programs.  As a racer and team owner I greatly appreciate your support and commitment to sportsman drag racing because without it, teams like mine would not be able to compete at the highest levels.  You guys do a tremendous amount for my team and I greatly appreciate your involvement, but thought I should say thank you for the commitment to all sportsman racers through the contingency program as well.

Your products are fantastic and I am proud to use them on my race cars, but your company is great as well, so thanks again.

Good luck in 2012 and hope to see you at the race track!!

I have a K & N Filter fixed on my Alto LXi and I am seeing an improved driving experience at 1st & 2nd Gear even when I turn on the AC. Earlier there was a weight on the engine as soon as the AC was switched on and I had to struggle with the Clutch to ensure the vehicle was not turning off ( Alto sucks with AC ON).  Now it's not the case after Fitting a K&N. Thanks for the K & N technology.

I just sold my Toyota Tacoma to my mechanic which had 235k miles on it. Virtually all of these miles were with a K&N air filter which is in as good of shape today as the day I bought it in 2003.
I figure that I saved over four times the cost of replacing paper filters every 18k miles by purchasing a K&N filter when the truck was new.
Today, I purchased a K&N air filter for my new 2011 Chevy Silverado and I expect the same superior K&N performance for the life of this truck as well.

I installed the 57 series cold air intake in my 2004 PT Cruiser myself. The step by step instructions are outstanding. On the expressway or on the street I'm up to or over the speed limit so fast that I go by other cars like they are standing still and I love the sound. It's a real head turner.

Just installed FIPK 57-3023-1 cai on my 2004 Silverado ss. Wow what an improvement! An engine is basically an air pump. The faster the air goes in and the faster it leaves equals horsepower. The K&N Fipk really brings air (life) to my truck. Even at low rpm. Very easy to install and perfect fit. Just need to add headers and full exhaust now to complete the system. Thanks for making another quality product!

I have a 1998 BMW M3 with your K&N Intake system, and I LOVE your intake, the installment was very easy, instructions were clear and very helpful for those not mechanically inclined, and the intake fits well. I can feel the extra power gained from the intake and my gas mileage improved from 18.9 to 20.9 MPG. If you have a BMW M3/328/325, this is the intake to have!

I purchased a cold air intake for my 2005 Toyota Tundra about 2 months ago. Before I installed the intake, I was getting 15 to 16 miles to the gallon on the freeway. After I installed the intake, my milage went to 18.89 per gallon. In town driving it increased my milage about 1 mile a gallon. If I would have known about the difference, I would have installed it 90,000 miles ago. I have a 2011 Dodge 6.7 Dodge diesel and wondering when the cold air intake will be CARB approved for it?

I have a 2006 Chevy Silverado 5.3L Crew Cab that I just bought. It was averaging 15.5 mpg around town. Today I installed a K&N filter and the mileage jumped to 18mpg not to mention the extra response the throttle has!!!!! I would have never believed that an air filter would have made that much difference. I'm sold! I bought one for my wife's car and I'll be sure to let all my friends know about it.Thanks a bunch.

I purchased a K&N cold air intake system for my 2007 Mustang GT from an ebay seller.  Once I received it, I discovered it was an old discontinued model, not compatible with my car.  I contacted K&N and they immediately resolved my problem.  I received a new model intake system and was able to install it in less than an hour.  

I had done some fuel consumption tests a few days prior to installing the new intake.  The onboard computer in my car will do real time gas mileage calculation, so I did a series of multiple tests over a standard course of about six miles at two different speeds.  I then repeated these runs after the install.  I couldn’t believe the improvement.  This product will pay for itself in very little time.

The increased power improvement is also very noticeable, especially at mid to high RPM ranges.  Passing is much quicker.

Great company, super people, amazing product.  Thanks K&N!

After installing a K&N air filter in my 2008 Smart Fortwo I noticed less hesitation during close navigation such as in parking lots and crowded neighborhoods where low speed movement is crucial.

I also noticed a slight improvement in acceleration.

I recently purchased a Typhoon short ram intake system for my 2005 Honda Accord i-VTEC engine and it has been hands down one of the best investments I've made for my car. It definitly adds more power and the intake sound just makes it sound like a monster. I LOVE IT. I've used K&N products on just about everything I own. I have a K&N intake system and K&N oil filters on all 3 of my cars and have always been very satisfied. I always recommend K&N products to my friends and will definitly let people know that the Typhoon intake systems are more than worth the money. And plus who can beat a million mile warranty? That has always been one of my big selling points.

The k&n filter has really changed the engine performance of my Yamaha FZ bike  . It's smooth now more than I had imagined it would be with k& n. Now I really enjoy the smooth flow of my bike with increased power and sporty uniform exhaust noise. With out k&n I dont want to own any bikes. I think it's a part that's a must for our bikes. Its' a worthy American product ..........................say good bye to chocking cheap paper filters and go for worthy k& n cotton filters.

Hi, I am living in Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) and driving a 2010 - Suzuki Grand Vitara (2.0L). Recently I was thinking it would be nice if I can add few more horse power & acceleration to the car, especially when you drive an SUV (with auto gear) moving like slow military tank when starting from any traffic signal.

So, for past 2 days I was doing some serious online research and found following ways to increase the performance of your car engine:

1.) Turbo Charger: can easily increase up to 100 HP, however it is expensive (costs up to 1 lakh or 2000 US$), very difficult to find the right turbo that suits your car and a good installer. If you are serious about having a turbo, then its better to buy a car with a factory fitted Turbo like Subaru-Impreza, Lancer-Evolution or even a simple car a Turbo charged Volkswagen-Golf. Turbo charger don't need any external power supply and rotary vanes are operated by the exhaust air pressure.

2.) Super Charger - I don't like the working principle of forced induction of air using compressor & external power source, which can also void factory warranty

3.) Adding a Performance Chip to modify your car's onboard computer. (I am apprehensive against changing any default factory setting)

4.) A simple & easy solution is fitting a K&N air filter. When I decided to fit the K&N filter and drive to the accessory shop, I was thinking my money is going down in the drain (because there is a million sites giving both good & bad news about this air filter).
However, considering the initial cost vs. actual benefits , I thought it is worth it to take the risk and got the K&N filter fitted last evening.

Before fitting the filters, if I wanted to speed-up & press the accelerator, the engine RPM gets raised (as it the car is in neutral), instead of the actual power transfered to the wheels. But now, I must say there is a tremendoud increase in power & acceleration in the engine. The throttle response is instant when you press the accelerator, the engine sound is also smooth & peppy and it's fun driving now and great to see your car talking to you in a different way suddenly after a small modification like changing the air filters.

It takes only just 4 clips to remove and fix the new filter and available for almost every car model manufactured in the world. The average cost should be between 40 - 120 US$$ depending upon the model of your car. The cost is nothing when you compare to benefits such asincrease in horse power, acceleration & mileage.

I would strongly recommend everyone to fix this performance part in your vehicle for happy motoring experience & enjoy driving.

The filter is designed for the life time of the car and needs cleaning only every 50,000 miles.

All the best. Thanks to K&N filter, Now I enjoy my ride even better.

Just received and installed the 57-1546 for my 06 V8 Dakota quad cab. Easy installation, great instructions and pictures. I'd driven the truck several hours before the install, and immediately felt a difference in performance from earlier in the day. No opportunity to check mileage yet though.
 All parts were easy to identify and install. Installation took about an hour. The only thing I needed other than the 3 sockets, 10mm wrench, ratchet and screwdriver listed was a 4mm Allen wrench. Other than that, anyone can install this.
 Excellent product and detailed installation instructions!!

I installed a 57-3023-1 (air intake) on my roomate's GMC pickup 1/2 ton 4wd 4.8 auto about a month ago. He tells me that it is still gaining power and performance every time he drives it and I think the computer is still adjusting to it. He say's he can't step on it from a stop anymore without breaking the tires loose, even on the second gear upshift and what he notices on the highway when coming to a hill it doesn't kick down nearly as often as it used to. I just bought one for my Grand Cherokee, can't wait to see the difference part No.57-1526


October 9, 2011
Works amazing in my 04 Chevy Cavalier. Noticed differences in acceleration, and fuel economy. Gained 2 mpg in the city and 6 mpg on the highway. Very good investment. No more down shifting on a larger grade hill. Easy install.

Hi all...
I own a weak ride and could not afford a hi-perfo ride soon due to insufficient funds :(
2day, i installed a K&N RC-1060 high flow air filter for my Bajaj Discover 125 and was blown back hearing it roar at me...!!!
I have seen this stuff installed in my friends high perfo rides and never thought that it could do the same change on mine...!!!

I guess upjetting wont be a big issue

Thnanks to Ken & Norm for the free flow solution... :)

I have a Karizma R series (223cc) and I decided to get a K&N air filter for it instead of replacing it with a stock one. I really didn't think it would make much difference, but figured the K&N would filter out more dirt. Well after I put it in and took it out for a drive, I can tell you that it makes the engine run much better and does give a small horsepower boost.


October 6, 2011
I have an old 76 Toyota pickup with 20r motor, 4speed manual with 4:11 rear end. Before installing the K&N air filter I was getting between 17-18mpg combined driving.  The stock filter was clean.  After installing the K&N air filter my mpg improved to over 21mpg combined.  Even got 20.6 mpg fully loaded with camping gear! I now get over 310 miles to a tankful.  I highly recommend these filters!
