I just want to say Thank you to K&N for making your filters, oil and air. I have been using your filters since the 1980s when I had a race car that needed the highest flowing oil filter possible, and K&N was the only way to go. I could see on the gauges that my very expensive engine was getting the flow rate it needed which other filters couldn't provide. Since then, I have used K&N exclusively on all my cars, including Mercedes, BMW, Volvo, Cadillac, Lincoln and others. K&N is simply the best there is, why bother with anything else? Thank you again! Please, never outsource to China!

I ordered the above air filter last week, after not being able to locate one in New Zealand.  Your service has been fantastic, it has taken about 7 days to be delivered.

I received it this morning and installed it in my Alfa Romeo 156,  the car responds instantly and accelerates so much better.  I had put one of your filters in an Alfa I owned a few years ago, but had forgotten how good they are.  Such a difference in performance.

I own a 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Extended cab 4x4 with a 360ci/5.9 liter V8 automatic. As others have stated, I was also hesitant to buy a K&N because of the $50 price tag and being slightly skeptic of the claims, but I had money to burn that week so I decided to buy it. At first I was very convinced I had wasted my money but none the less I had fun unboxing the filter and installing it along with slapping the K&N sticker on my air cleaner. Then after a week the computer adjusted to it and over the course of a month of driving my truck I had noticed gas mileage being very very good on the highway & city, especially for a truck that'd usually nail down a constant 16-17mpg in stock form.

Recently I borrowed my truck to my parents and they reported an average of 21mpg on a 1000 mile round trip to pick up an engine! A 4mpg increase on a 360 Dodge truck weighing 6450 lbs loaded down with cargo & passengers none the less over my stock baseline!. I don't know anyone with a stock filter getting anywhere near this mpg with a Dodge!. I believe it has helped my mpg out a lot!.

As for the power aspect of things, I didn't think much of it, until I had driven other 360 Dodges I had worked on doing tune ups and wondering why they never seemed as fast as mine. The K&N is what I think is delivering that very noticeable difference. Future buyers beware: it may take about 100 miles for the computer to adjust to the new flow of this filter for your butt dyno & pocket book to get the most out of it.

All things considered, the fact it made any difference at all was a plus in a world of products that don't deliver, but the fact I gained 4mpg and a little more snap to my truck that I can feel is a great thing!. I would highly recommend K&N to anyone looking to get the most out of their vehicle!.

I would just like to give credit to Daniel Shoemaker for his awesome customer service! I needed parts for 2 K&N intakes I have, one for my 2005 Silverado and one for a friend's 2013 Silverado. Daniel always answered my emails promptly, and professionally. He found the parts I was after and didn't waste any time getting them to me! I will definetley be contacting him again if I need anything else or have any other questions!

I will be informing others of his great customer service and will not own any other brand intake!
Quality parts, done right, with great customer service!

Thanks a lot Dan!!

Last day I bought an air filter from K&N for my Honda Aviator. It gives me better pick up and good sound.

I have never bought into too many aftermarket products, but I have to say the K&N intake I just put on my 2012 Durango Citadel Hemi is AWESOME! I was skeptical about buying it due to the noise concern as I am a professional that frequently has clients riding along with me. The intake doesn't make any louder sound than the factory intake until you get on the throttle. Once you do, it is noticeable and in my opinion sounds great! I immediately felt the HP increase on 3/4 throttle at about 4400 RPM's, it was that noticeable! I don't have much to say about the fuel economy but maybe a mile or two per gallon, unfortunately what you gain in fuel economy is easily wasted in the fun you will have listening to the intake and showing off the 17HP and Torque gain!

Oh yeah, I almost forgot. Installation was pretty easy and instructions were very detailed. I'm just a white collar weekend warrior and I had it installed in about 35 minutes taking my time to do it right.

Great Job K&N

I just want to say thank you to Robert Knudsen for the 5 Star customer service! I can't believe how fast you were able to get that CARB sticker to me.  I live and breath customer service, and you Sir, are right on point.  It's so refreshing to see such great customer service from larger companies.  Thank you K&N for not loosing focus of whats important!

I am a firm believer in K@N products and the lifetime guarantee. K&N air filter is the first thing I buy for any car truck or atv that I own. I put a K&N air filter on my 1985 Suzuki LT250R 5 years ago, after all the racing and trail riding the filter has taken a beating. Called K&N service dept. and spoke with Emily about my old filter, they are sending me a brand new filter for free. Thank you Emily and K&N for the awesome service you provided me. I recommend K&N products to anyone!

Firstly I want to say your filters are AMAZING! I will never have any car without them again. My first experience with K&N filters was in my 1976 El Camino back in high school, Flipped the air cleaner lid and BOOM cheap open element air cleaner haha.

But my review isn't about that it is about my 2004 Mercedes Benz CLK55 AMG cabrio. I joined the military a few years ago and this was my purchase to reward myself. When I first got it I was not averaging great MPG as you can expect from any 19 year old with a 400 HP car. However once I got used to it I drove it for maybe one month without the K&N's in. Once I put them in the car was a lot smoother with it's acceleration it wasn't on or off power it was a more linear pull. I realized my Mileage went up about 1.5 MPG. Well the real story is in the last few years I have put 50000 miles on my car with the K&N filter. Doing math today for fun assuming gas was 4.00 a gallon ( which it was never that cheap you guys have saved me around $1310 dollars NOT including the price of factory mercedes filters for 50K miles. AMAZING Product Great quality I reccomend them to ALL of my friends and every car in our family has one.

I have a Ford Fiesta 2012 se sedan and I replaced the paper filter  in my Fiesta and I put the K&N drop in filter in. And man I can tell you the difference.  My acceleration is a lot better than it used to be.  My car used to jerk back from the paper filter.  once I put the K&N in  I didn't feel any jerking when I pressed the gas.  I recommmend anyone to use a K&N filter to save money in the long run if u plan to keep your car ot truck for 5 to 20 years! Also I have noticed I have gotten a increase in my MPG (depends on your driving habits). I've gotten a 1.5 to possable 2 mpg more in the city highway. I don't know yet but will keep a eye on it and see if there's a increase in highway millage. but anyways people I recommend getting a K&N filter! They're really good for your cars and trucks! They save you money!!

Upgraded my 2008 96ci Rocker-C with a RK-3910-1 and it's like riding a new bike. I am amazed at the difference. More power throughout the band for better 2-up riding. Motor seems to run easier and a bit cooler too. Money well spent. Highly recommend this product!

My last OEM filter was falling apart. When I got the KN filter I could immediately tell the difference. Nothing that could possibly come apart on it. It was shipped the same day I ordered so wasn't down more than four days. It cost more but it was worth the extra zip my machine has now.

Just installed the K&N engine air filter for my new to me BMW 325ci and wow, what a difference overall.  Wish I'd have bought K&N over the years for my other vehicles.  I'm 56, and this is my virgin K&N.  Late, I know, but I'm a fan for life now.  I just received 2 oil filters from you so that's next.  I'm a believer!!!

This is my second air filter for a Dodge Diesel truck, my first filter is in a 1990 Dodge Diesel and has about 400,000 miles on it, I am extremely pleased with my K & N air filter. This is the first time I have purchased from the on-line store and it was very easy to find the air filter for my 1997 Dodge diesel. It was out of stock when I ordered it on 9/20/13 and I received an email on 9/24/13 telling me my filter has been shipped. Thank You K & N Filters for your excellent service and updates on my order!!.

I ordered this kit for my 2007 Silverado from a well known online vendor. When I got the Kit, the intake tube was defective. I contacted the vendor to verify the part was defective and request a new one. The customer service rep was, what we call in my neighborhood, a clueless moron, who told me to contact K&N directly. So I got ahold of Robert K. at K&N, told him what part I had and what I thought was wrong with it. With in minutes he was able to correct my issue and send me a replacement part with no questions asked. The new system works great in the truck, and with customer service reps like Robert on the payroll, I will without question be a loyal K&N customer for life. Robert, thank you again for the help and tell your boss to give you a raise.

Bought your cold air intake system for my 2008 Tundra 77 series am very happy with it. I noticed much quicker acceleration at higher r.p.m. installation was easy. Only problem I had was some of the holes had to be re-tapped because of chrome build up.
Overall  I'am happy with it. Thanks...Dennis

I have nothing but good to say about my experience with getting a replacement part for my K&N air filter.  I was surprised to get a reply on a weekend day from my original email question.  On the following Monday, I called the phone number that was supplied and got an immediate response from the person that took my call.  More companies should be operated in this manner.

This a review of the K&N customer service, not a specific part.

I've had a K&N Cold Air Intake system on my 2004 Mustang for years.

Recently I noticed a rattling sound coming from the intake area of the engine whenever I pressed the accelerator. I took a look at the intake and noticed that the bracket that secures the intake to the engine had snapped in two, and the sound I had noticed was the heat shield knocking up against the engine bay wall. I called K&N to see about getting a replacement bracket shipped to me. I spoke to an actual employee right away, and she made sure she knew which part I needed. Not only did K&N ship it to me, they sent it FREE OF CHARGE! I got the part within a week. No credit card just my address. I was extremely pleased.

Compare this kind of customer service with Comcast, am I right?

This my first experience with K&N products, and am glad to say I'm happy with the improved performance in my Civic (06 VTI-L automatic).  Prior to installing the filter my Civic had the 100,000km service, and has been always serviced every 10,000km.

Firstly, while my Civic still has some go, it seemed sluggish from a stop start and seemed to react a bit slower when I wanted it to jump.  That has much improved since adding the new filter.  And it has improved the performance with general during drive responsiveness as well, now it's pretty fun to drive when I'm running a bit late.

Economy wise, my daily work commute is just over 30km one way, and involves some flat, but mostly up and down stretch of road at 80km/hour for around 15min, then a mostly flat 110km/hour stretch of highway for around 10min, combined with some parts at 60km/hour (with just myself in the car).  On top of the work commute it also gets driven in my local area at 60km/hour on the weekend, and there are a lot of round-a-bouts for intersections in my area (with just myself, or with the wife and 2 kids, or myself with golf clubs in the car).  Anyway, after initially filling with 95RON from Caltex, 9 days of commuting and a weekend of around town driving, adding up to almost 600km, I filled back up with slightly over 36L's, which equated to 6.17L per 100km.  I'd say this would have been an improvement of .5L per 100km on the work commute, which does add up when I normally need to fill every fortnight!  For those in Australia (SE Qld), my work commute is from Noosaville to Nambour, via Eumundi, and the local area is Noosa.

I have no doubt that if in typical highway conditions (100-110km/hour) that I could get close to 1,000km per 50L tank, depending on who or what else is in the car with me.

The K&N filter has improved the performance and economy of my civic, now I'm going to start looking for one for my wife's car.

These filters are awesome! We live on a dirt road west of town so we replaced our paper filters with REAL ones shortly after moving out here. We use this kit about every 15K but the main point is no grime gets into the engines (we have a diesel F350 and a gasser).

The vast majority have no idea how important clean air is to engines... every bit as important as it is to US! Its a dated thing. If you trade in your vehicle promptly its somebody else's problem. But we repair/maintain our paid-for vehicles for at least 15 years. Thus if we robb Peter now we pay Paul later & these filters and cleaning kits will prevent a lot of $$$ repairs from ever becoming an issue.

For example a friend living close by has the same truck with similar 150K miles... with lots of injector issues (just spent $1200 on them). and paper filters. We have K&N with not even a hint of injector issues. Now this may not be the reason as there are other filters that need to be changed regularly as well. But its the only difference between the vehicles measured over time that we can discern. He recently switched to K&N!

I put on an intake system on a 1999 F250 5.4. The instructions were easy to follow, all parts fit perfect. This truck is use to pull a 27 ft. Airstream so when we get back from Florida in Nov. I will comment on performance, but from test drives this truck runs great. What an excellent product.

To Whom it Concerns, I installed this Air Filter in a 1991 Toyota Landcruiser about 5 years ago, and figured it was time to service it after 100,000 miles. I almost passed out when I pulled the cover off the Air Box. We live out in the country and had a rodent problem at one time, but I never thought to look in the air box for dog food. I swear the picture is as I found the element when I pulled the cover off, I have no idea how the vehicle even ran, let alone passed enough air to operate at highway speeds and not trash the air meter and Induction system, but as you see, the clean side of the filter is exactly that, still perfectly clean and undamaged, you recharge kit re-habed the filter and it looks brand new. I'm an idiot, but your product is incredible, thank you. Feel free to use this picture in anyway you like. Sincerely,   Dog food in air filter assembly

New 2013 Camry got 26.4 mpg during local driving. 28 mpg after intake system installed with similar driving. Youtube video showed fresh air intake mode, but I changed to a direct intake tube later (1 mpg with the video change and 1 mpg with more direct air path), so now about 30 mpg with same local drives. Mileage computer said 43.5 mpg during 85 mile round trip (less than 60 mph and 2 lane country roads, except for 2-3 towns with stop/go driving). The intake system is very quiet at idle, exhaust has more tone, but the air intake can be heard under moderate acceleration, but no hard acceleration yet. Waiting for engine to break-in (less than 600 miles on motor), another road trip in 2 weeks to check gas mileage, and to hear back from K&N customer service about my questions about the installation kit and instructions. My 2nd intake system and several replacement filters with combined use over 1/2 million miles. All of them improved gas mileage and better engine response. Usually clean friends and my K&N filters at the 40K mile range.

Just installed this intake (69-8004TTK) on my car a few days ago it was very easy to install especially with the vehicle specific instructions. And I could instantly feel the improved throttle response in my 08 Wrx. You can really hear this intake sucking in air I am surprised it has not created a black hole it sucks so hard.

We have been using your K & N oil and air filters for the past five years and have won 5 championships in three years we are still in contention for this years championship and K&N filters are getting us the podium finishes that we need to still compete at a championship level in the PRO Class at the AMA MAXC Cross Country Series. We would recommend K & N for anyone competing from the novice ranks to PRO.

I installed BA 2201 air filter a year back from authorized dealer here in the capital city. To my surprise, he took exactly 3 minutes to install the new part in my Bajaj Pulsar 200F. When I started the ignition with a roaring voice, I asked the K&N guy, Did you do something in engine or in exhaust. Guys in India Pulsar 220 is proudly the fastest Indian bike, where I have reached upto 145kmph, but after installing K&N, I reached 153kmph. For increased power, kmpl, torque, and heart taking exhaust sound, I think every pulsar owner should ask for it. And for K&N, I would request them to come up something more related to exhaust kits and other performance enhancers for Indian mades. Yo man, it rocks!

I bought my 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe with most of a K&N FPIK on it, and I've always loved the way a K&N sounds. Then I called Customer Service about a trashed air filter and they were sending one out to me the next day. I was happy as could be about the new filter, until my intake tube began to collapse, called back and they sent that out to me too! I've never dealt with a company as easy going and helpful as K&N. I'm a mechanic and I reccomend K&N to anyone who asks. An amazing product backed by an amazing company that stands behind their product. I'll never buy anything else again!

I have bought a CAI from K and N before for my 2005 F-250 and saw a decent gain in fuel economy. So  I wanted to install a CAI for my 2011 Mustang V6. There is a noticeable gain in power and fuel economy. Good product.

I bought the KT-1211 filter for my KTM Duke 200. It took about 5mins to install which is very fast. It has increased BHP and torque by a huge amount and can be felt while riding. Acceleration has increased. It makes the bike sound raw and peppy. I am happy with my purchase and will Continue to purchase products in the future-).thanks on team and hope U guys make more types of performance mods.

I began using K&N Filters back in the mid 1980's when Suzuki, Honda, Yamaha and Kawasaki began their version of the muscle car wars.  If you put the K&N filter and jet kit on one of these, you were pretty much untouchable at the track.  I now have a K&N filter on everything I own, from my 2011 Chevy Silverado to my lawn mower.  We put the universal cold air intake (Apollo) in my daughters' 1992 Chevy S-10 Blazer and it gets 24 mpg!  Great products all the way around!!!

My stock intake flex hose split so I decided to use this as a replacement/repair and upgrade at the same time.  Took me less than 30 minutes total time (removal of old intake to starting engine again) with an 8mm, 10mm socket, flat head screwdriver and a pair of pliers.
Wow am I impressed!  5th and 6th gear 50 to 70mph acceleration was much smoother with a noticeable power gain.  0-60 time is amazing and they only claim a 10.5 hp increase.  When V-Tech kicks in this thing sounds amazing!!!! and high RPM power is MOST DEFINITELY increased!!  Low RPM and normal driving do not seem to be any louder so the comfort level is not decreased and I can keep my quiet commuter at the same time!

Had I known what a difference it would have made I would have done it brand new!  My car has 215,000 miles on an otherwise stock never rebuilt engine and it just came back to life!

I recently fitted a K&N HA-2511 filter on my Honda CBR 250R. It took less than 5 minutes to change the filter from the stock filter to the K&N HA 2511. I am extremely happy with the performance of my bike from the very moment I fitted it! There was a definite change in the sound of the bike (much more refined and peppy) and the torque went up instantly. The bike seems to breathe better and run better too, with better pick up, more response and seems to have improved my fuel economy marginally too. All in all a great boost to my bike and to my riding satisfaction.

I replaced the stock type paper air filter on my 2008 Mazda 3 with a 33-2293 K&N replacement filter.  What I noticed from the first time I drove it with the K&N filter was a noticeable increase in throttle response and acceleration. This was at all throttle openings, but particularly at smaller throttle openings.  On top of this, mileage is a little better (1 MPG or so) than with the stock type paper filter.

I just bought a used 93 Mercury Capri, drove it through 2 full tanks of gas then put on my K & N filter. Outside of sounding a little more vital I noticed an increase of 3 mpg overall. Understand that's 3 mpg in California traffic gain. That's a free gallon of gas for every ten. In three months my investment in the filter will pay for itself.

We started using K&N products on all 3 of our drag race vehicles 5 years ago. We began to see immediate results in performance and round wins. Currently, ALL of our vehicles (race, daily drivers, tow vehicles, etc.) run K&N products including air intake systems, air filters, fuel filters, and oil filters. The biggest impact we see is with the air intake systems. On our 2010 Dodge Challenger 5.7L V8, we installed the K&N Air Intake system part No.57-1542. Not only do you FEEL the extra HP and torque, you also see an improvement in MPG. I'm not sure how K&N engineers these things, but if you can give me more power AND increase my fuel mileage - I'll take that every day of the week! Thank you K&N.

I love these guys. They are very helpful in times of need. First my original Typhoon had the MAF plate welded on in reverse. MAF won't work that way. A call to K&N and a new intake tube arrived in 4 days. A while later, a fender bender, and a lost mounting bolt. Another call and a new one on the way. You got to love a company and empoyees who stand behind their products. This is one such company. Others can take a lesson from them. Thank you all again.
