I was unsure if I should use a K&N filter on my 2006 Jeep because I've heard negative comments about K&N letting more dirt into the engine. I use a K&N filter with a K&N filterminder (recommended) and the results that I got back from a lab states that my K&N filter is doing a great job. I also use K&N oil filters which also have been giving me great results. My next car/truck will have a K&N air/oil filter.

Dear all,

   I have a Pulsar 180cc. I installed a K&N filter and I literally felt the power difference. I enjoy cruising long distance. Before installing I could feel the engine finding it difficult to breath and difficult to ride. But now nothing more to say I feel the real power and the initial pick up is just awesome. Install the filter and do need some tuning also. The air:fuel intake ration must match. DO NOT FORGET TO CLEAN THE FILTER AT EVERY 10000KM which will give you a better result.

  Now I recommend all my fellow riders go for the filter. Now I am planning to buy my second bike. I am going for the K&N filter in that too. HAPPY RIDING

A K&N RC-1060 air filter increased the acceleration and horsepower of my Pulsar 180, but I dont think it increases the top speed..but initial acceleration is awesome....vroooom...

I recently installed a Drop-in K&N air filter on my Honda Civic 1.8 iVTEC. Initially when my friends recommended this product to me, I simply laughed it off thinking that its another business gimmick. After some persuasion, I decided to try one, which is the drop in filter, the most basic air filter replacement from K&N. As I am a sensitive driver, I noticed drastic improvements in acceleration instantly. The RPM shoots up faster when you tap the accelerator, which means better throttle response. This improves acceleration definitely. And the engine sounds better when you accelerate. Furthermore, K&N gives lifetime guarantee for it. For people who don't want to void their vehicle warranty, K&N Drop-in air filter is the product to go with!! I fully recommend it to every car owner.

Do keep up with the good job, K&N.

K&N Product Information for 57-3013-2
1997 1500 5.7 V8 PU
57 Series FIPK Performance Intake Kit - 57-3013-2

I have been using K&N Air Filters for 18 years and do notice better gas MPG as well as perky acceleration . The initial cost may be higher than the standard air filters which need to be replaced every 8-10 thousand miles, thus end up costing more out of pocket $$$$ and you're not getting a high end product like K&N. Keep the dirt out of your engine by using K&N and with a LOF every 3,000 miles and you'll be driving your car into the 200,000 plus range easy. That is why I use the product, and 10 years from now my car will still be on the road!

Last week I bought a K&N drop in air filter for my 2009 V6 Ford Mustang. I did indeed notice a quicker throttle response like K&N had promised. I also noticed a slightly louder exhaust sound due to the increased air flow like K&N had promised. So I cannot complain about this product. It is a lot better than the stock Motorcraft filter my car had came with. Best of all, its guaranteed to last a million miles. I recommend this product to car lovers everywhere!!!! K&N kept their word about everything!!

I have a 2008 Mercury Milan Premiere, 3.0L V6.  I recently installed the 69 Series Typhoon Cold Air Intake coupled with Dual Magnaflow mufflers with 3.5 tips.  The power, sound and mpg were all dramatically improved immediately!  I installed the mufflers a week or so prior to adding the Typhoon and there was a performance increase and of course they added a nice rumble to the sound of the vehicle.  BUT after installing the Typhoon, my engine downright growls! I didn't have any dyno tests done, but I can tell you the HP got a nice jump and the acceleration is palpable.  I recommend getting the K & N cold air intake for any vehicle that can accept one!  You won't regret it!  Great product!  Thanks K & N!

I own HONDA UNICORN, and it used to just reach 110km/hr, and I was unable to compete with other 150cc bikes, and when I installed a K&N air filter in my bike it reached almost 127km/hr top speed and the HP is also much increased. Now I can beat any 150cc non K&N bike or Pulsar 200 non K&N wala very easily and they all look very amazingly at me............I feel as if I am on top of world...
Guys do try these filters! These are really worth it....

On long runs up the motorway I was aver' 400/450  miles per tank at 60 mph now I get 450/500 + , What are you waiting for get one.

I have a 1998 Chevy Prizm with a 1.8L 4cyl and noticed more HP and torque and getting great gas mileage. I had also put one in my 1997 Chevy Cavalier and noticed it was getting great gas mileage. Could you possibly make a cold air intake kit for the Chevy Prizm?

Have used various K&N air filtration systems over the years. Had a drop in filter on my 98 Ford Taurus(3.0 V6)and FIPK kits on my 97 GMC Jimmy(4.3 V6) and 92 Saturn(DOHC I4). Currently I'm using the kit from the Saturn in my 2005 Hyundai Elantra(2.0 I4)and a drop in filter on my 97 Moto Guzzi California (1100 V-Twin). No complaints other than not having a dedicated kit for the Elantra but the Saturn kit modded easily to it. Fuel mileage increases all around and noticeable power increase on the Jimmy. Considering purchase of kit for the girlfriend's Accord...

I love my truck...even more now! I own a 2007 Escalade. I added the K & N air filter today and noticed an immediate improvement in acceleration and power. I am a very satisfied customer. I will recommend you to anyone interested in gaining performance and saving gas with their vehicles. I have used an air filter in several sport bikes I've owned. They were outstanding also. I knew that the price was well worth the investment. I appreciate the excellence of your product. I would have purchased the air intake had I known of it before I paid for and used the air filter. Maybe sometime in the future. Until then, i'll be enjoying my new ride.

K & N ?? In my opinion the air intake or the filter is one of the most important things that should be installed. On my JEEP I've really felt the difference after I have installed the K&N COLD AIR INTAKE. It's really worth it to purchase it, and at the same time the price of the K&N filters are reasonable. BEST REGARDS TO ALL K&N TEAM AND OWNER'S.

I installed a K&N cold air intake system on my 1996 ford ranger 4.0. Its has increased acceleration and gas mileage greatly. I'm getting almost 22 mpg overall which is awesome!! And it sounds great! A little truck with a big bark. I am going to put one in every car I own from here on. It is very easy to install too, even if you're not a mechanical person.

I just installed the K&N cold air intake to my 05 Mustang GT and you would not believe the performance and sound change. It is fanstastic. I coupled it up with a Diablosport Predator tune and you have to be gentle with the throttle to keep from spinning the tires. If you haven't put a K&N on your ride yet DO IT, if you put on another brand, REPLACE IT you won't be sorry.

I installed a Cold air intake on my 2001 GMC Seirra 4.8L Vortec and saw significant gains not only in horsepower but my fuel economy! I then installed a aftermarket racing chip and re-mapped my chip which made everthing across the board go up! I am now getting 28 miles to the gallon on the highway! For a full size truck that is amazing! I have always and will always continue to use K&N filters in all of my trucks! We haul a lot of boats here in the Boatyard (Joels Outboard Marine, Ft. Lauderdale, FL) and this company has always saved us money with a small investment into their products!

I drive a 2001 Toyota Tundra, adding the air intake from K & N made my truck roar. Outstanding horsepower gain and quick and easy to install, me and my buddy installed it in about 45 mins. Well worth the money, I will be putting one in all of my vehicles. Not sure about MPG gain yet, haven't burned a full tank yet. Altogether a great product for your truck.

I have been buying K&N filters since 2003 for both my 2003 and 2005 Lincoln LS V/8's and now for my new 2010 Ford Taurus SHO P2. The increase in horsepower is palpable, the extra power is obvious and the low profile growl from the exhaust is pleasing on the ears. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an in expensive way to increase your vehicle's horsepower, I even put one in my 2007 Lincoln MKX and again the power was Bang in your face fast. I'm Looking forward to getting the Cold Air Intake for my SHO once it's available.

My 1999 Lexus Es300 was feeling worn out and laggy on the beautiful mountain roads up here, and my gas mileage was steadily declining. Then some engine cleaner helped a little, but once I dropped in the k&n my car partied like it was 1999. 0-60 dropped by at least a third and not only did the car get the gas mileage it held a decade ago, but beat it. If my mechanic throws it out he's fired, I'll take the filter over them any day!

I am sending you a testimonial for a product of yours I recently installed.


I just recently installed your 77 series intake kit on my 2009 Jeep Liberty Sport 4x4 and what a difference it has made. The 3.7 v6 had decent power but I got your kit because I heard your filters and performance kits gave great results.

This 77 series kit gave the engine new life to it and even though it was only 10hp, this kit helps the engine breath and perform much better. It didn't take me very long to install because I am working as an apprentice mechanic so it took about 40 minutes and it was worth the time! Also I was averaging 490km per tank and this kit brought it up to 540km per tank, which is not too bad for a Jeep.

My next mod is gonna be a lift kit and off road tires.

Several years ago I purchased your air filter for my '99 Ford F150. I've loved it so much I bought a second one! That way, I throw the clean one I've been keeping stored back in my truck while I wait for the dirty one to dry. I haven't had to buy an air filter in years and have no idea why everyone doesn't use your filters! Good job guys, you've made caring for a truck easy for this not-always-so-mechanically-savvy woman!

Just put the 63-series intake (63-3070) on my 2010 Sierra, and seriously- the sound alone is worth the money and will make you giddy like a 5yr-old at Christmas.  Honestly sounds like I changed mufflers instead of the intake, but it's nice and quiet at RPM's below 2500.  Additional power is also noticeable, will have to report back on fuel mileage.  Lots of fun, easy to install with the proper tools available (5/8 drill bit was absent from my toolbox and had to ream out the hole you have to drill).  Again, well worth the investment.

I installed a K&N air filter in my 2008 Dodge Caliber when I bought it. Window sticker claims 23 city mpg and 27 hwy with automatic cvt. I typically get 25-27 city and 31-34 hwy. Can't give all the credit to K&N since I run Nitrogen in tires and synthetic oil, but I know the K&N filter makes a difference.

I use your cold-air filter on my Acura CL, and I have obtained 35 mpg, as opposed to the 29 mpg EPA rating.  As an added bonus I feel the extra power.

I have installed K&N air filters in both my vehicles and all I can say is WOW. I noticed instant improvements in acceration and performance in my 2000 Mercury Sable after installing the K&N filter. I am certain I will see an improvement in fuel economy.

I installed one in my 1987 Dodge pickup out of necessity because of how the the intake system in the 318 ( 5.2L ) engine lacks a breather filter and I was going through paper air filters like crazy having to buy a new one every 4 months or so. The K&N filter made the truck run much smoother and easier to start because it allows better airflow to the carburetor.

I was skeptical about putting on a cold air intake, but I had the opportunity to pick this up used at a great price, and I could not be happier.  There is definitely more torque in my 09' Charger (3.5L) across the spectrum.  The engine runs much more freely, the acceleration is better, and at 70 on the freeway I'm at 2000 RPM's, and there is not a sound coming from the engine.  Not a peep.  I have not had a chance to check mileage yet but based on the lower RPM's and improved acceleration I am confident it will improve.  That is, of course, if I keep my foot in check!

Makes me wonder why they do not install these at the factory.  I can't image it is that much more expensive that the stock system.

I highly recommend this unit for a Charger SXT.  The low end torque on these from the factory is not that good.  This CAI made a world of difference.

I have just completed a trip from Perth Western Australia to Rotterdam Holland by way of SE Asia, China, Tibet, Mongolia and Russia in my Toyota Landcruiser. I fitted a K&N air filter before departure and have been EXTREMELY happy with this product.

The roads in Tibet are very dusty, and there are NO roads in most of Mongolia just tracks across the dusty wilderness, and the fuel is very poor quality. I replaced my fuel filters 3 times due to blockages, but my air filter was great. I simply used the cleaning product, washed with water, reoiled and installed. It trapped ALL the dust and kept my engine safe from damage. I have done many miles in the outback of Australia and never had a better product. Thanks K&N

I have installed the Typhoon intake system on my 2008 Scion XB. The difference is remarkable. As I accelerate the car just keeps pulling and pulling. My gas mileage will suffer because I'll be punching it whenever I can. Get yours as soon you can, it's well worth it, and a great improvement in your car's performance!

I just installed a Typoon Cold Air intake on my 2008 Saturn Sky. It was by far the easiest installation of aftermarket equipment I've ever done. All of the pictures included with every step were wonderful. I write service procedures for diesel trucks for a living and found your instructions to be second to none. Thanks for a great product that was easy to install.

Hi Friends,

I have a Bajaj Pulsar DTS-i 150cc, 2004 model.

Before I used to get a top speed out of my bike of approx 115 km/hr and an amazing milleage of 50-55km/lr (speed 45-55km/hr) and on the highway it would be of 65-70 km/lr (Speed 50-60km/hr). Believe it or not that's true. Now thanks to the K & N air filter, it not only boosted the power of my bike but my milleage also got high and the bike sounds like a thunder storm.

After some unique upgrade in my bike with the help of K & N air filters & NGK spark plugs I get pulsating power + mind blowing millage.

Now my bike unbelievably reaches from 0 to 6 in less then 4.5sec. I got a top speed of 140km/hr.(as shown in the speedometer) and my millage after this upgrade is 53-58km/lr (speed 45-55km/hr) and that on the high way of 68-72 km/lr (Speed 50-60km/hr).

The max milleage that I got was of 78km/lr (Speed 50-60km/hr) and the top speed of 140km/hr, was on the Pune - Banglore highway with a single driver.

Believe it guys it's TRUE.

The K&N filters really do work, and it's a lot more effecient on my fuel than the regular paper filters that come with the car. I would recommend everyone to get a K&N filter.

I own a 2007 Dodge Dakota SLT with a 3.7L V6. My problem was city gas mileage. After installing your performance intake kit (77-1558KP) my city mileage improved from 12.9 mpg to16.8 mpg. Hard to believe that just an intake filter system could make that much difference but my onboard computer says so. Delighted with the results.

Hey, I have a BMW Alpina M82. I only use K&N filters for my 480bhp BMW tuned engine. It gives maybe 3 to 6% more power with a round K&N filter and it lets the air flow come more easy and cold which improves my car's performance. It is a perfect choice for everybody's car and don't forget it has a lifetime of use. 3 years and it's just like a new filter. Perfect. Thanks for the K&N company... bye.

THANKS K&N without K&N it wouldn`t be possible.....

I just picked up the K&N filter for my 09 Cobalt LT. The first drive with it I felt a difference in gas pedal response, wasn't as laggy, and could feel the engine was pushing more air and had a little bit in acceleration. You can also hear more air through the exhaust if you listen when you get on it. I didn't think just a filter would make such an even noticeable difference but I definitely recommend the filters to ANYONE!

Hey guys. I installed a k&n air filter on my pulsar 180 cc. The fastest Indian is now ready. Sounds like strong tiger, speed like a rocket. Thanks k&n.

Just wanted to let you know that I ran a new tank of gas after installing the K&N filter and my MPG has increase 10% (5mpg). The bike sounds better, and it runs a great deal better with more power. I love this thing!

I put my cold air intake in my 2003 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8T. It has more torque and acceleration. You can feel the difference when you get on it. And just the sound of my engine sounds better. You can also hear the air being sucked into your engine and when you let off the clutch you can hear it whistle. I highly recomend this to anyone looking for better engine performance and possibley fuel economy. It will pay for itself eventually with what I think is some better gas mileage. Buy K and N!

I don't usually write in to give my testimonials about thing I buy but in this case I find a need to say thank you to K&N for the Air Charger (air intake). I just had it installed on my totally stock '08 Road Glide. I'm not sure how much of any increase in horsepower it has actually produced but what I can tell you this from the first twist of the throttle I could notice and feel the extra power in the motor. Without changing anything else there is definitely a big difference in power.
Thanks again.
