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.

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!!

Installed the air filter today. Dramatic change in the noise level of the engine. I started the car twice, wasn't sure it was on the first time. Immediate increase in horsepower. Will recommend this to daughter.

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

Installed E-2993 to my Focus MK2. Noticable throttle response. Car started breathing again. Never consider buying stock filter if you can buy K&N. With proper maintenenace it lasts a lifetime. Cheers

I just wanted to personally thank K&N customer service for helping me recently when I called to find out about possible replacement parts for their filtercharger on my 2005 GTO. When I was taking it apart to clean and condition the filter element, I noticed the bottom half of the heat shield was pretty corroded. I called to see if I could buy one to replace it and was told it was covered under the warranty at no cost to me!
I always show my car at car cruises and shows and am proud to say I use K&N products and now even more so!  Not only does the product perform well, but the customer service is excellent! Special thanks to Thomas Walden for quick and excellent customer service!

A loyal K&N customer,

P.S. My son wants a K&N filtercharger for his 2011 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 3.8 , but you don't make one (yet), what's up?

I had a 2007 Kawasaki Vulcan 900 belt drive. I replaced standard pulleys for improved top speed and less vibrations but lost some noticeable torque. I then installed a K&N filter and frankly I could not believe the difference it made. Revved much harder, sounded better and improved my acceleration noticeably and regained any lost torque. I don't know if petrol consumption improved because I tended to go harder though I didn't notice any drop in MPG. Now got a Triumph Tiger 955i with K&N and it goes really well.

I'd recommend this to any bike owner. I'm now thinking of putting one in my 4x4 cause its heavy on fuel. FWIW.

Put the kit in my 2008 Avenger this past weekend.  WOW, nice!  I not only like the sound and the extra power but I also notice that the gas mileage is better.  The kit was a bit of work to install, had some holes not quite the right size but nothing that was a deal killer. Thanks again K&N!

I replaced my OEM air box and filter with a K&N intake filter cone on my 1994 Dodge Stealth base. Before I got 25-28 mpg. Now after monitoring the gas mileage average 29-32 mpg on a v6 18 year old sports car. THAT'S AMAZING and the horsepower was very noticeably different. I noticed it did 0-60 in about 5 seconds, not bad for stock. After installing the intake cone from K&N it could get from 0-60 in 4 seconds dead. In a better description there is an electric post about 2 houses down from my house and I can see in the window from my house so they are not far away at all! It can get from 0-65 by the time it reaches the post and out runs a 350 5.0 mustang at over 140 mph. I definatly recommend K&N to anyone who either wants better gas mileage or just wants to get that extra edge.

Just purchased/installed the 63-3070 on my 2011 GMC Sierra Z60 HP 4X4 with the LS327 motor. I already love the unit, very noticeable performance gain, hoping my alredy pretty decent MPG get's even better.

Great job K & N, I did my homework and couldn't find any of your competitors that even came close to the value and perfomance numbers!!

Installed your typhoon kit on a 2008 Toyota Corolla, and what a difference it makes! The car is much peppier than it was stock, and I can go furthur on a tank of gas by about 80km!

I will use your products in any future vehicle I own.

K&N is the best! I use them in all my vehicles including my motorcycle and love the difference they make. I had bought a filter a few years ago for my truck and was starting to have some issues with the foam seal coming apart. I called the company and no questions asked, a new one is in the mail. Great customer service for an excellent product. I will continue to use and recommend them to everyone!

I just installed this FIPK2 in my 1997 Expedition and although the truck is a little long in the tooth I am able to notice better throttle response throughout all the RPM ranges. And it is a very beautiful looking piece of hardware! Thanks K&N!!!

Put an intake kit on my 4.7L Dodge Dakota many years ago.  Immediately liked what I heard and felt. Picked up some better mileage too.  My poor truck is long gone (RIP).  Just got a new setup for my 2008 3.5L Avenger and installing it this weekend.  I will let you know what I think after that.

I tell all my car buddies you need to ditch the paper filter and go K&N
In fact my Kawasaki had this filter in it 15 years. I replaced it as the rubber was real hard.
Great products.

I have used K&N filters in all my vehicles. After having an issue for first time in 12 years (Which I caused by improper cleaning techniques.) I was amazed at the company standing behind their product and resolving issue promptly. K&N has a great product and operational support!

Really impressed with the way my complaint was handled.  I bought the air filter for my F-150 basically when it was new. At 120K the seals are deteriorating.  I wrote the company Sunday.  They sent the new seals out Monday.  Great service. Thank you.

I love this system. It wasn't really that hard to install at home, but it just takes time and patience. The only thing that I encountered was the clearance issue between the fan cover and the intake tube, but got that taken care of just by grinding down the engine fan cover a little bit. Then it worked just fine. I've even noticed a HUGE gain in horsepower and torque. Now you get pinned to the seats under full throttle!!!!(literally) The truck that I have is a 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500 LS 4X4 with a 6.0 under the hood!!!! I've also noticed a GIANT gain in MPG. I have only driven about 50-60 miles so far and the needle is still on full. I average around 10-14 MPG with stock intake. I Hope the MPG Goes up. Horsepower/Torque went up Though!!!!

I have a 1996 Dodge Neon Highline sedan, and the car has never had a new air filter installed into the car besides the factory filter.  Just today I put in a K&N filter in the car.  And I noticed a very big improvement on acceleration and speed.  My car got 25.12 MPG on the old filter in the car,  and I know I will have improvements with the K&N.  I absolutely love it in my car,  it does drive nicer than before.  Much more pleasurable to drive.  Thanks K&N!

I have been using K&N filters on my vehicles for many, many years. The car that I drag race actually runs faster with the K&N filter as opposed to no filter at all. The only way that I have destroyed a K&N filter was to burn it when I had a carb fire. But it sacrificed it's life to save my fiberglass hood & front end by keeping the flames inside of the filter (that was saturated with gasoline) long enough to get the hood off & put out the fire. A loss of $50 as opposed to a loss of thousands. Thanks.

I recently purchased an intake system for my 2007 Expedition EL and I love it.  I've always used K&N Filters on my vehicles but I noticed quite a change on the Expedition.  It seems as if the transmission shifts better, better throttle response, and fuel mileage.  Within the first week of use I gained 1/2 a mpg.  It may not seem like a lot but it definately helps, anxious to try it on a long trip.  Keep up the good work.


February 8, 2012
I am so glad to see a filter for my 2010 Chevy Traverse.  I checked not too long ago and could not find one.  I am a true K&N fan.  I had a K&N filter in my 1993 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP and checked gas mileage before and after and saw an increase of two to three miles per gallon depending on driving environment. So for the Traverse it should be a welcome increase no matter how big.

Thanks Guys!!

My Rubber sealing gaskets for the E-0945 K&N Air filters had broken in small pieces when I removed the filter from my Econoline Van to clean it. I have over 330,000 Kilometers on that K&N filter and it looks as if I had installed it for the first time.
My local dealers did not have the rubber sealing gaskets, I called K&N and to my pleasant surprise they told me that they would send me the rubber sealing gaskets for free.

That is first class customer service.

After buying my third K&N intake system for my recently purchased Nissan Xterra I experience a problem with the element hitting the fender.  After working with Steven du Bois, a product specialist, he sent me replacement parts that remedied the issue perfectly.  Now my FIPK works just as I have come to expect of a product from K&N.  K&N's customer support is the best you can ask for and I love their products.  I will continue to be a repeat customer.  I will be saving up to get a kit for our Mazda.
Thank you K&N.

I just installed a 69-8610TTK Typhoon on my 2009 Toyota Camry. I noticed increased performance right away and an otherwise boring 4 cylinder now has a new attitude. Great job K&N.

   A few years ago,I had installed a panel high flow air filter. It's on an 2008 Chevy Aveo economy car, and I was amazed with the new results. It even has a flowmaster addition added on,for higher performance as well. The k&n is a top choice for these cars to achieve extra pwr.and fuel economy in any situation.

I just installed a K&N oem air filter for my 2004 Toyota Sienna AWD. Before I installed the filter I was doing 21-22mpg. After installation I am doing 24-25mpg with normal driving and 26-28mpg with careful driving.
Way to go K&N!

Installed a new K&N Filter on my 2012 Boss 302 and Dyno the Mustang with the stock Ford air filter then with the K&N and the results was an increase of 5 HP without any other adjustments. Although I'm not concerned about the gas mileage on this go fast weekend toy, I'm sure that as in my other 5 cars with a K&N filter the mileage will increase.

I have been using K&N filters in most of the vehicles that I have owned over the past twenty-three (23) years, I initially installed one in my Audi because everytime it would rain and water would pool, my filter would get wet, with your filters that would not happen anymore. I have since installed them in two Mercedes and one Honda, and a Lexus all with marked improvement in engine tone, horsepower and gas mileage. In fact my first Mercedes jumped from 32 to 35 mpg on the highway pushing 70 and my Audi averaged about 38 on the highway doing the same thing. I highly recommend these for most all vehicles.
