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.

I own a HERO HONDA KARIZMA-R Series... I`m very addicted to automobiles and to speed.
At begining when I rode my bike, I would reach up to a top speed of 125km/hr... but after I read about K&N filters and got one installed at my friend`s shop.. It`s record breaking that MY BIKE TOUCHED the TOP SPEED OF 155km/hr......
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.

I installed the 63-2574 on my 2008 Ford150 with 4.6l engine.  I was coming up from NY city visiting my mom.  There was an immediate increase in acceleration from the get go and on my trip up to Toronto I usually have to fill up my 100 liters to make it into Toronto.  This time I had a full 1/4 tank or 25 liters extra.  Not only did I get immediate passing capability my truck was running a lower 250 r.p.m  doing 100-120 kph.  

The instructions were great but I regret approaching 50 years of age that the tiny details of clamping bracket and O2 sensor could use a blown-up diagram to assemble the washer/nut/bolt combos.  Other than this the instructions were self-explanatory. Need those blown up details.  The Cad generated details look as fuzzy on your downloadable PDF installation drawings and I had to resort to a cold beer and trying to read the letters associated with the diagram and the materials list to assemble the two areas of the system.

My only regret is that I was not able to get the system to Canada to assemble it in the truck and take it down to Floyd Va.  for a seminar.  It would have been great to see how it handled on the rolling terrain of W. Va and Va.  

I am very impressed with the FIPK kit and would not hesitate to do it again or recommend it to my collegues and friends.  A small price to pay for such a difference in performance and helping the environment by saving gas.  Within two years I will recoup my initial investment and put 10% less pollutants/fuel by-products in the air.

WOW, I put the filter in my 2007 Hyundia Tucson 4-cyl. yesterday and noticed the difference, like now, just took a 60 mile ride today, the car rides sooo much better, its really wierd how just an air-filter makes so much difference, I should have done it years ago.. thanks K&N..

I have installed k@n air intake filters in my Pulsar 180 UG4 model. After that my bike's 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...


June 8, 2010
I purchased your No.57-2565 High Performance Air Intake System for my 2005 Mustang GT Convertible and all I can say is Gitty-Up Little Pony!!! It took an already gutsy 325hp, 4.6L, V8 and increased the the horsepower by almost 20 more horses. The throaty growl and accelerator response is very impressive. I hit 122mph in 4th gear and she wasn't even done. Installation on my vehicle was an absolute breeze, 6 bolts, 3 clamps and 1 hose in less than an hour. K&N fan for life.

Few weeks back a mechanic told me about k & n. Though I was not aware about it exactly I just decided to experiment. And the changes were incredible & there started the unleashing of performance.

I just tried this amazing k & n filter in my HONDA UNICORN 150CC and now things are going more faster and easier, feel like I got an extra pair of athletic lungs for a furious ride. I regret that I didnt get it earlier.

I Bought One Of Your Air Filters Nearly Three Years Ago For My Toyota Corolla VE.
So Far It Has Not Disappointed Me Yet. My Car Has Over 204,000 Miles On It And Is Saving More Gas Compared To Using Those Paper Or Some Other Fiber Filters That I Used In The Past.
Another Good Benefit Is That I Have Not Had To Replace An Air Filter Since I'VE Bought This Filter.
You Guy Deliver The Best Product That I've Used So Far And Also I Have Been Turning My Friends On To Your Filters.

Keep Up The Good Work And Thank You For This Product.

Ten mins ago a put a K&N air filter in my 95 3.4L Camaro, started it up, pressed on the gas and you could hear the difference! The air whistling into my engine was the greatest sound ever. Took the car around the block and WOW!! They're not lying when they say you can tell a difference. Best product I've ever purchased for my car! Will be getting one for my mom's Chrysler LHS very soon. Keep up the great work!

I installed a K&N R-1060 air filter on my Pulsar 220 DTS-FI. the air filament choke sensor used to blink , but now its been rectified . the pickup is awesome....  it does a 145kmph double seat .....  not tried single seat ...... but you can imagine to what speed it will reach !! the K&N filter has changed the way the bike runs altogether ..........  it's like you're driving a monster . K&N is the worlds best air filter !!!!!!!!!!!!

After experimenting with another company's cold air intake, I've switched back to a K&N drop-in for my '05 Mazda6S and couldn't be happier.  The smoothness under acceleration has returned, as has throttle response when at speed.  I know K&N makes no MPG claims, but after seeing increases on 3 vehicles, I feel the MPG increase is due to the improved throttle response and power of the K&N resulting in smoother driving.  I also like not throwing a filter into the trash every 20k miles.  My last car went 198,000 miles with a K&N that was still like new when I sold the car.

For everyone that is deciding on getting a K&N C.A.I. go ahead and make that choice it's more than worth it. My vehicle is louder, more responsive, quicker acceleration and better MPG. A guy from the customer service center was helping me and he went above and beyond to not only help me but make sure I was satisfied. Finding customer service and people that will help someone else out like he did is not easy to find these days because of him and because of K&N I now have THE BEST cold air intake. Thank you and keep making some of the best products.

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!
