I purchased a K&N air filter for my 2009 Toyota Corolla, 1.8L.  I do probably 75% of my driving on the highway, and in the first 6,000 miles with the stock air filter I was averaging 32.6 mpg (car rated 26 city, 34 highway).  After the first 2,000 miles with the K&N air filter I'm averaging 34.2 mpg.  At that rate, the filter will have paid for itself after only about 14,000 miles!

I have a 66 Mustang with a .030 bored 289 fairly well done with AFR heads. When doing a dyno tune, and after doing some primary jetting on the 750 Demon carb we did two pulls. When we put the K&N X-Treme lid and the 14 K & N element back on I had a increase of 17.9 hp and an amazing 22.6 ft. lb. tq increase due to the fact that cleaning the air and directing the air into the carb properly as they are designed to be doing. I'm Amazed!

Got a 2007 Dodge Caliber R/T a couple months ago because I totaled my Ford Focus. Immediately I noticed the acceleration for my Focus was better all around. Quicker response to the gas pedal and seemed to have better all around acceleration.

I do A LOT of driving for work and to/from work, avg 100mi per day. I can't have a car that's weak or doesn't perform well on the road.

I just installed a K&N in the factory air box. I took the car down the street to the freeway so I could test the acceleration without getting in trouble on the neighborhood streets. Coming down the on-ramp the first time I could feel a huge change in acceleration, engine response to the pedal and tire traction. Before the K&N when I'd get on it sometimes the front suspension would shudder and jump making the front of the car vibrate, also quite embarassing. Now with the K&N when I get on it the tires sometimes squeal a tiny bit...I know bad for the mileage, but it's so good to feel that K&N power!

My Caliber also has the gas mileage on the speedo display. From the display I would guess it's getting at least a few mpg more. If I keep it at 60mph it gets almost gets 28mpg! This is also my first car with a moonroof. Keeping that closed would help also, but I love the view!

On here it says with the K&N the Caliber has 7.89hp gain. When I read that before driving the car it seemed like a pretty small increase. But after driving the car 7.89 more hp makes a huge differance. Don't think I'll install the kit. On here it says the hp gain is 7.98. Which is only a small amount more than with the factory box.

If you have a Caliber the first upgrade it needs is a K&N. Simple to do, but has huge payoff.

On my 996 Carrera 4, I just installed your K&N stock filter replacement and WOW!
The intake sound above 3500 RPM is even more magical than it already was and there is an appreciable amount of additional thrust.

I feel like I just gained real world HP and made the Porshe's song sweeter. (An F430 Spyder gave me a thumbs up!)

Thank you K&N!

I'm buying filters for the rest of my cars this weekend!

I installed the kit on my '08 Caliber R/T. What differance. About 3 more mpg when I keep my foot out of it. Performance is great worth the money. It's almost like a bigger motor was installed.

I just installed this kit on my 02 S10 2.2L. I now have much better throttle response and better acceleration in the mid to upper RPM's. It gave the truck a nice, throaty sound when you get into the pedal. It's a tight fit for this truck but it went together perfect!

Here's one for the Royal Enfield Bullet (350cc Cast-Iron engine only), since you guys haven't been given much feedback on it. After installing a K&N R1100 on my bike, the bike started to run very lean and became extremely sluggish on the hills. Ill-informed mechanics are aplenty in India and sadly (but thankfully) I had to read and learn about the rejetting technique myself. 100 main-jet worked well for me and the performance has improved phenomenally over the stock RE-Bullet. Also it is important to get a free-flowing exhaust and an iridium spark-plug adds the icing to the cake to release the exhaust quicker and burn the excess fuel coming from the bigger main-jet.
All this with a decent fuel efficiency of 31Kms to the litre and a very responsive bike indeed.

Just finished installing K&N's typhoon series air intake system on my 02' Chevy Cavalier LS Sport. And all I can say is awesome! The sound the engine makes as you push on the gas panel and the quick response that you get from having it on your engine is great. 5.89 horse's doesn't sound like much but you can feel the difference in power. Highly recommend buying a K&N air intake for your ride. Its worth it.

I have an 08 Impala SS, 5.3L. I installed th K&N cold air intake as well as a flow master exhaust. Man, what an amazing transformation. The car is screaming fast, better on fuel, and more HP. I would recommend this easy install to anyone! Thanks K&N!!

I have fitted the 57S-9500 onto my 2.0FSi Passat, and I need to say it’s really amazing what the box does to your car. You can really feel the difference in low rpm's but also when going full throttle. When driving without the lid you definitely have the feeling the car is a race car. Really nice solution that you can drive with the top off and on the air box base. And also TUV approved! Thanks K&N this was really worth more than I paid for......

Hi, I recently put the k&n filter to my Apache RTR 160 n the bike is giving me tremendous pick up and average. Firing has become more powerful and the vibrations which are complained by many people about RTR has decreased a lot at 110km/hr. Aso the bikes runs smoothly. K&N filters rock!!!!!!!!

Hi,
I own a 2005 model Bajaj pulsar DTS-i. I like to share my Experience with my lovely K&N R-1060. This is realy superb value for the money. More power, more mileage, smooth running (keep 50-65Km/h). I feel: 1] Great pick up
2] Maximum milliage (my three milliage tests on highway (6pm rush time) get 61,64,64 Km/l)
3] Cool and smooth engine (no any noise from engine at 80Km/h)
4] King of road in sound beat (wrooooooooooom..... )
My words for my friends, run your bike at 50-70 Km/h. That's good.

PEOPLE THINK WHEN THEY PUT A K&N FOR A PULSAR 180 THEY CAN HAVE BETTER PICKUP THAN A PULSAR 220 !!! THATS TOTALLY WRONG !! I CAN GUARANTEE FOR MY PULSAR 220 WITH K&N, MY PERFORMANCE HAS INCREASED TREMENDOUSLY !!! SO THERE IS NO CHANCE THAT A PULSAR 180 CAN SMOKE MY PULSAR 220 !!!!

I have installed k@n air intake filters in my Pulsar 180 ug4 model after that my bikes torque increased by 80%. Now in the city my initial acelleration is more than a Pulsar 220 dtsi and top speed has increased to 140 km/h. Truely a satisfying performance and the fireing is also awsome...

I'm a performance oriented rider and I suggest my biker brothers to install k&n high performance filters.

Put @ K&N 33-2363 air filter in my 2008 Dodge Nitro R/T with @ 4.0l V6. Factory mileage was listed @ 11 litres @ 100/klm's. After installing the filter, I was down to 8.6 liters per 100/klm's @ a cruising speed of 110 klm's on the highway! Hope my new filter installed in my 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 5.7 litre Hemi will give me the same results if not better. Thanks K&N

Hey, I just wanted to let you all know that the team loves the K&N Power Kleen. We use it on everything from the wheels on the race bikes to the roof on the transporter. It is amazing how well it gets the grime off. It's safe to use on paint and decals but strong enough to remove brake dust and track grime from all parts of the motorcycle. We even had some pitch and mold on the top of the RV and it cleaned it right off. Once again, your products rocks!

Thanks,

All I have to say is WOW. Just finished installing the cold air intake on my 95 full size Bronco 5.8 engine 13000 miles. Only took a half hour to put in.  I got a dyno report from K&N the results of a 94 bronco and it gained about 10 h.p. I think I got around 25 more h.p. The results were awesome from a dead stop I really felt the difference and when I hit the passing gear on I-95 it felt like a plane taking off, the gravity felt like it was pushing me against the back of the seat. Considering I have 33.5 x 12.5 tires this is great . well worth the money. I cruise in overdrive at 70 mph and my tach is reading 1750 before 70 mph was 2200.

I bought the 69 series Typhoon Proformance Intake Kit for my 2006 Mustang V6 have noticed faster throttle response and more horse power not to leave out much better gas mileage on the highway if driven at normal speeds. I've gotten an extra 1/4 tank with the K&N Typhoon on the highway. That is awesome, what used to take a full tank a week now is just 3/4's. I will never use another company other than K&N. They have a great product not to leave out a 1 million mile warranty. Thanks K&N bar none the world's best air filter.

I just put a airbox and filter from K&N on my 2003 4.7 Tundra and have one on my 83FSJ plus another on my 85 AE86. I have always had a good bit of difference in all fuel & performance. I will be towing a fifth wheel trailer with my Tundra next week so I will get good results I am sure.I hope that I have no Toyota problems.

THANK YOU K&N!
The K&N 69-8610 was the SECOND Cold Air Intake I bought this month for the SAME CAR! The first C.A.I. I ordered was thru a crappy internet company that not only delivered my parts to CA instead of PA, the (brand name removed) pipe I got didn't fit my car's mass air flow sensor (makes it useless to me)! A friend told me about K&N so I sent the (brand name removed) back and looked up the K&N C.A. Intakes right away! It arrived when they said it would, all the parts were included, everything fits perfectly, instructions were easy to follow with a lil common sense, it accelerates a lot better, more responsive and it sounds great!

I like everything about this product and the company behind it is very professional. I will def recommend this product and company to anyone.

Hi there! Its awesome power gives me confidence on the road. Guys I have this Ford Ranger '03, 2.5L diesel engine, turbo intercooler, 12 valve, limited slip differential,4x2,.. I installed an RU-3580 air filter and replaced my muffler with a straight 3 pipe for my exhaust..it really feels great driving on highways and trekking mountains..I wonder how much horse power it gained because the power it has now is way too far from stock.

Had to visit your headquarters in Warrington to collect a part that was missing from a 57i induction kit for my Renault sport RS 225, the guy that dealt with myself was excellent, couldn't do enough to help me, was extremely helpful AND professional and is a credit to your company and should be recognised as such in my opinion! Didn't catch his name, but he had long black hair and a goaty beard.

Please pass on my thanks and grattitude for dealing with my problem so efficiently and curtiously..

When I bought my 2010 Toyota Corolla in Aug. 2009, my mileage was average 24 mpg. I changed to Mobile 10W20 oil, and installed a K&N filter last month. Now...it's 30mpg!!! Two of my vehicles have them, now I'm getting one for my Civic. Thanks K&N.

I've been using K&N on all my vehicles, from my '88 chev 305ci to my brand new '09 chev 325ci, I love your products, can definately tell the difference. I only have the replacement filter for my truck because a cold air wasn't available when I bought the truck, but now that one is available I'm going to be putting it on as soon as possible. Awesome product guys keep up the good work!

I have been using K&N filters on all of my vehicles since 1990! In fact, I put one of the flat panel replacement filters on my 3.7 Liter V-6  2004 Jeep Liberty in 2004 then switched it in 2007 (after 24,000 miles) (in the dealer parking lot!)to my 2007 Liberty V-6, then switched it April 12th, 2010 (after a total of 64,000 miles)(again in the dealer parking lot!) to my 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the  3.7 V-6! Both Libertys gained over a mile per gallon-I'll let you know how the Grand Cherokee does.

I installed a 77 series cold air intake system in my 2010 Toyota Tacoma today and it is awesome. I am not a mechanic or even a tinkerer, but I was able to install this kit myself in about 2 hours. The instructions were accurate, simple and easy to follow. On a short test drive, I sure could feel the horsepower increase. I look very much forward to a mpg increase as well. I'll post my results as soon as I have them.  Thanks K&N, you make an outstanding product.

Thanks K&N

I just recently had K&N installed an air intake system for my 2010 V6 Camaro, and all I got to say is WOW. As I open her up the aggressive sound she let out gave me chills, well accelerating with joy.

Thanks K&N

Was looking to boost performance on my 91 Olds Cutlass Supreme.  The filter was simple to install and looks cool too.  What it did for me was amazing.  Acceleration and power increase.  I do not have to put the gas pedal down as far to get up to speed.  Wish I had this when I first bought the car.  

Keep making great products.

I had driven my 1999 Durango 360 for years with paper filters and after my friend's told me about K&N filters I figured I would try them. After the switch I went from 13MPG on the highway to 16.5MPG on average. These filters are awesome and I would recommend them to anyone... Great product!!!!

Purchased K&N 33-2247 air filter for my brand new pickup, let me tell you WOW the throttle response is better. I'm getting about 3mpg out of her. Man can she go when you stomp on the pedal. It already had 310hp but you can tell when you hit the throttle even more now. Thanks k&n for making some great products. Will make sure everyone knows about your brand!!!!!!!!!!

I am a custom sportbike builder and have used K&N air and oil filters in all our builds/customer bikes. I know the benefits of using quality filters versus what is entry level. Recently I was talking to Johnny Jump of K&N about my 2001 Suburban 2500 with 496 big block I use for towing, and he said there was a FIPK kit available for it. A few days later parts arrived and with 20 minutes of time the kit was installed. Fits perfect, throttle response is quicker, and combined with a new free flow exhaust and engine management program I am getting a 2 MPG improvement. Starting at 10 MPG, that is 20% for me. Can't say enough about the product and its quality.

When you hold a K&N filter in your hand, the quality is obvious and even exciting as you think about letting that horse under the hood breathe a little easier and deeper. When I installed the Typhoon Cold Air Intake system (which consisted of a high tech filter assy and solid ducting), I admired how simple it was. When I put my foot to the floor (WOT) the Typhoon sang like a trumpet and the car rocketed forward. Nothing like going through a quiet tunnel, going through the power range and hearing that engine SING! While I may not be able to put the cold air intake system onto all my vehicles...they all have the K&N filter! Increase air flow, performance, and a product that lasts a vehicular lifetime?!!
THE WORLDS BEST AIR FILTER!! FOR SURE.

I own a Suzuki Fiero. It generates 12BHP & has 4 gears so there's no way it can compete with a new Pulsar 150 but when I installed a K&N filter, it did performed better than a Pulsar. Acceleration has improved very much and mileage has increased too and above all it sounds awesome and dude if you want your machine to do more than what it does now GO FOR K&N.......................
Thank you K&N

I installed a K&N R-1060 air filter to my 100cc Passion plus bike (after 6 months of purchase) and it's doing an awesome job. K&N rocks, the pickup has increased drastically and I could attain a max speed of 105kmph (though the engine roars).

The showroom (bike seller) guys said that if you install these external filters, it will affect your engine. I installed a K&N filter, WOW what a change in the performance. I love my bike because of K&N.

Thanks for inventing such a wonderful product.

I have a Ford Explorer Sport, Honda GL1800 motorcycle, Mustang GT/CS, Toyota Celica GT, and a Honda CRV, all of which I have put a K&N filter or filter charger kit (air intake) on.  I have been sold on K&N filters for years and always change out the stock filter on the first change for a K&N.  I am sure that I have saved more in gas costs than the value of the cost of the filter replacements over the years, not to mention the increased performance and better engine response.  I would highly recommend the K&N products to anyone!

Great Products guys!

Having purchased a K&N Air filter back in 95 for my 93K 2500 6.5TD Chevy. I'll have to admit it was money well spent. 225,000 miles later and one free replacement filter, your product is great. Your filters have handled the AlCan highway, -60F to +120F temps, desert dust and blowing snow without even the littlest difficulties.
I am going to install a K&N system on my 2010 2.0 Turbo Passat and run it back to Alaska and check the millage.
I gained almost 2 mpg average on my Diesel Truck. Let's see what you can do for a sports model.
Thanks K&N, you're one of the first and still the best, in my book.

It's been almost 6 months since I bought my bike (PULSAR 150) but today I got an RC-1060 filter installed in it. Really felt the difference, you'll feel the pick up right from the 1st drive. Also it sounds amazing. While installing had doubt of whether it's worth it or not but after the drive you'll come to know that it is!!!! Thanks k&n

I AM USING K&N AIR FILTER IN MY MARUTI ESTEEM . I AM VERY HAPPY .PEOPLE ASK ME ABOUT THE BENEFITS OF THE FILTER.

BEFORE EXPLAINING I ASK THEM IF A PATIENT IS TAKEN TO HOSPITAL WHAT IS THE FIRST THING DOCTORS DO ++ THEY GIVE OXYGEN FOR BETTER BREATHING.

SAME WAY K&N FILTERS WORK THEY GIVE PUREST AIR TO THE ENGINE TO PERFORM BETTER ,

THANKS

Awesome addition to my 2010 SS Camaro.  The intake (69-4519TP) was delivered on time and with all parts included.  I took my sweet time installing the system and it only took me 90 minutes.  Every part fit perfectly and the instructions were crystal clear.  The car fired right up and ran like a beast.  Don't listen to mechanics that tell you that you need to re-tune the engine or computer, they are trying to scam you.  This typhoon system runs perfect without any tuning.  The increase in power is noticeable and the sound is awesome.  The best bolt on performance I have ever used.

My check engine light was on, so I took it to the ford dealer to check it out. They called me back and said my master air flow sensor and o2 sensor were bad. They said because I run with a K&N filter the oil makes them go bad. So I got on K&N's web site and watched a video on master air flow sensors found out 65% of sensors pulled were still good and all the sensors they got back last year they had a forensics lab test them and none of them had K&N oil on them, they just had dust or pollen on 23% of them and mechanical failures on 9% of them. So I went to the auto parts store and bought master air flow cleaner for $7 and it fixed it. The dealer tried to charge me over $700.

Thanks K&N for making a great product and standing behind your customers...  By the way Ford tossed my K&N and put a paper one back in. I made them fish it out and I got it back in my truck.

Thank you,
