I am a 54 yr old male who has installed your air-filter products into five 5, yes I should become a rep.....yuk-yuk.  The difference on my Malibu 1987 is at least 50 km plus per tank!! Never mind running smooth.  This is the way a vehicle should breathe.

I installed K&N power filter in my Bajaj Pulsar 220 DTSI. It has an awesome engine sound, very beautiful and it helps in accelaration and pickup. So, I would like to thank you for making this filter. Thanks K&N ,,,GOD BLESS YOUR COMPANY

I had my mechanic install a K&N filter on my '07 Big Dog Mastiff (motorcycle). The power difference isn't noticable by the seat of the pants but my mileage went from an average of 24-City/36-Highway to 35-City/48-Highway.

I just purchased a K&N filter to replace my "brand removed" filter on the Intake of my 240 HP Supercharged Snowmobile. Will give feedback on how it goes after running the K&N this season.

I bought the typhoon cold air intake for my 96 Honda Accord 2.2 and I love the Power increase that it have the car. I will be purchasing a cold air intake for my 02 yukon Denali with the 6.0 and I hope I get the same performance for me denali that I got with my Honda. And I really like the sound it makes when it is sucking all that air in. Thanks K & N for such a neat product.

I installed a K&N air filter on my '06 F150 when it only had 3000 miles on it. I now have 63,000 miles. It has been cleaned twice. Before I put the K&N air filter in I was getting 18 miles per gallon. With 60,000 miles on the filter my milage is 26 miles per gallon. The local ford dealer can't believe it, but I have the records to prove it. Thank you K&N for saving hundreds of dollars in gas over the last 60,000 miles.

Put a big K&N air filter in my tricked-out 350 cid in my old Chevy Malibu.  Wicked.  My rear tires are now bald...  Sweet.

I replaced my stock paper filter today, granted it was 12 month old and full of dust, but the difference made by the K & N was huge.

0-60 reduced by 1.5 seconds as I now don't have to change up to 3rd just before the 60mph mark (Engine cut out 7000rpm)

Overtaking from 50mph is much more responsive.

54 euros for this change is well worth it!!

I really like the performance that I get with the K&N Filters.
They are really long-lasting with a minimum of maintenance.
Of my two most recent filters they are both over 5 years old.
My two vehicles are a 1994 Pontiac Firehawk, and a 1998 Ford Expedition.

The performance that I received from just installing the filter in the Expedition was great. It made the SUV actually drivable in that there was pronounced lag upon acceleration before the K&N Filter which is now gone.  That filter was first installed on Oct. 20 2004, and the filter is 5 years old as of this date.

My Firehawk received its filter in 2002 and is still in use today.

Great Products.

For one year, I have had a K&N filter on my KIA C'eed/1,6 DSL /115 HP.
I have noticed especially a better acceleration, a little better power and the fuel economy is about 0,3-0,5 l/100km (in a normaly...driving!)
K&N is the best investiment, till now, in my car !(the next will be oil filter K&N !!)
Thank's K&N

I own a 2008 Chevy Silverado. Since installing a K&N air filter I'm getting @ 150 Kms more mileage per tank of gas. It more than pays for itself in a tank or two of gas! I think this is a substantial differance and I am telling all my friends. Awesome product!

I just got done trying out my New XStream Series Motocross Filter for my 2007 SUZUKI RMZ450.  

I felt quite a bit of power when I was coming out of corners, it was hard to keep the front end down. It gave it def more bottom end grunt. Also when letting off the gas and getting back on the gas in mid throttle the pull was enhanced.

You can def hear the thing sucking in the air and also at top end it gets loud, not obnoxiously loud but a nice deep grunt from the air box.

Thanks for making such a sweet product.

I have a Hyundai car.I noticed a little better power and slighly better fuel mileage with it.
Plus, it has better filtration than the stock filter.
It pays for itself over time.

I've been using K&N filters for years in all my bikes with definate improvements to exeleration and all round performance. My latest bike, a Triumph Daytona, was suffering from a jerky flatspot at low revs after fitting a race can and power comander. Once I fitted the new K&N I noticed an instant result. No more flat spot and much improved takeoff, now I can realy enjoy the bike to it's full potential.
Big thumbs up to you guys across the pond us brits salute you :-)

K&N is the best investment anyone can make to up grade the air intake for their auto or bike and gain H.P. and fuel mileage at the same time. They are the greatest filters anyone can find .

Upon installing a K&N air filter in my 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac with the 4 Litre V6, I noticed that my fuel economy initialy went down.
I attributed this to the ECM not recognizing it or compensating for the increase in air flow.
After about 5000kms, I noticed an improvement and after 10,000 kms I am now getting 28mpg as opposed to the 23mpg I was getting with the stock air filter.
This improvement is based on highway driving with the cruise control locked in at 100 km/h.

Just received and installed your Typhoon cold air intake on my 2009 Subaru WRX and I am impressed.  It was easy to install, looks better than original equipment, and the extra punch was very evident the first time I drove it.  My WRX was already pretty quick, but its now very very quick.  Thanks for a great product.

Always had a bogging-down prob.that I couldn't adj. out. Just put your E-1650 a/f on for grins, and guess what- no more probs. with hesitation!! Excellent throttle response.. In the process of checkin' mileage, looks better so far...Highly recommend your products now...thanks!!

Went from a stock paper filter to a K&N air filter in my 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer ES. There is absolutely no hesitation with how my car responds now. I ran max A/C with fan speed in high, used fully synthetic oil, and the car still accelerated like a missile on the street. The engine is only a 2.0L 4 cylinder 120 HP non-turbo cast iron engine. Barely touched the gas and the car responded instantly even with a full load on the engine with four people. Mitsubishi recommends filter change every 30000 Miles, but with K&N you don't have to clean it till 80,000-100,000 miles on the filter. Much easier to get peak MPG at least, and yes a I drive a lot in the city and now top out at 24-33 MPG and 35-42 MPG on highway depending how I drive. The use of a stock or cold air K&N filter with fully synthetic oil will more than pay for them self.

I have an '08 Jeep Wrangler and when I put bigger tires on my mpg went down big time.
I was told to install one of your filters and it would help. And it did. I went from 13city - 15 hwy to 16 city 19.5hwy.
Well I'm sold on your product.

Well I had 1990 a Nissan pickup that I put a K@N in. It gave me good mpg then I upgraded to a 2003 Chevy 2500hd 6.0l V8. It sucked gas like no tomorow. Well I thought to myself and got the complete air intake kit this time. Before I put the high performace exhaust in I noticed I was geting way way better mpg with this pig then when I got the exahust I got even more. Well I got rid of the Chevy and moved to a car. I now own a 95 Eclipse 2.0l non turbo. I got an exahust on it with the stock air filter. This made it a little more snapier then I got the drop in k@N and man WOW. The power I have now! As always better mpg, keep up the good work guys. THANKS K@N

I put a K&N Filter on every vehicle as soon as I purchase it. I have a 2000 Ford Mustang, 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited, and a 1996 Pontiac Sunfire that all showed noticeable increases in horsepower and gas mileage especially with the Mustang. I purchased a 2004 Ford Explorer just two weeks ago that had a noticeable throttle response problem. The installation of the K&N showed a noticeable improvement in the throttle response. I have used the K&N cleaning kit for years now and have never had any problems with oil build up, ever. It is very easy to clean the filters and if needed the instructions are extremely easy to follow. I would and have recommended the use of this filter to everyone I know in every vehicle they have. Dare I admit that I have actually given a few as gifts. A friend questioned me about the K&N filter days before driving from Boston to Kansas City. My response was get one and if you do not like it I will pay for it and buy you a new air filter. He estimated that the filter paid for it self and then some on just one 3500 mile round trip. When he returned he thanked me for the advice. It's the most inexpensive dollar per horsepower product I have ever installed on any vehicle.

I purchased and installed the cold air intake kit for my 2008 Chevy Impala SS WOW.  The immediate difference was unbelievable.  It made an already 300+HP screaming machine, faster and more responsive.  The MPG has increased significantly as well.  You can hear air being sucked into the throttle body!  Thanks K&N, this product is amazing!

I writing now what I should have written years ago.  I came to the website to look at the iformation offered as I want to put in a K&N air filter in a Ford Expedition I want to buy.  Years ago I bought a new 2000 Ford Explorer with a V6 engine and while on vaction in the high Sierras with my new Ford which was fully loaded with gear and family, I clearly recall how my Explorer performed.  At around 4,000 feet I laid on the gas pedle pretty hard for more than a half mile to build up speed as the grade up the road gets pretty steep up to our destination of just over 9,000 feet. Within less than 5 minutes I had the gas pedle floored and was just barely doing 50 mph.  By the next year I had changed out the air filter and exhaust. When we went up that same road I had to stop to pull over so that my wife could get my daughter a bottle as her ears were hurting her.  I thought all my speed was gone and we have even more gear then last year.  Well thanks to swapping out my filters and exhaust I was able to get up to 65 mph and even my wife was surprised and noticed the difference.  But the best was the increase in the over all mpg I got out of each tank.  My log showed that I was filling up at around 335 miles per tank and after I was filling up at around 360 miles per tank. After just over 10 years of ownership and over 166,000 miles not only have I recouped what money I paid for the filter and exhaust but have probably recouped it 5 times over. When you add that my engine has never had to be touched by a mechanic I would say with the help of the K&N air filter I got my monies worth.  Thanks guys for a great product, I will be putting one in when I purchase a Ford Expedition.

I have a 2008 Jeep Compass, with 9,000 miles on it.EPA rated at 22mpg city and 27mpg highway. I live in the country so 70% of my driving is highway.
Since installing a cold air intake and high performance muffler I average between 28.5 and 29.5 mpg. But when I installed the K&N Lifetime air filter, when I had 1/2 tank of gas, it averaged 30.5mph, so I will properly average average 31.5mph. I am impressed!

Being a long time user of K&N OEM replacement filters this review has been 15 years in the making.  During that time I have owned four vehicles all fitted with K&Ns. Every filter has flawlessly performed for me.  I have never had a single problem or sign of a problem in using them.  I mention this because in researching my latest K&N filter for my 08’ I noticed a few claims they cause MAF sensor failures.  I would personally argue that the opposite is the case they probably actually help prevent MAF sensor failures.  What I have seen is improved acceleration and throttle response in my vehicles.  In addition to the money I have actually saved by not buying disposable filters every 12k, the little K&N sticker keeps the quick lube guys out of my air box. (K&N NOTE - See http://www.knfilters.com/MAF/massair.htm for MAF sensor info.)

Last year I replaced the stock air filter in my 1981 BMW R65 motorcycle. I knew it ran rich (carburetors) but I went from 40mpg to 48mpg with the K&N. This year when my Honda Civic needed it's first air filter I went with a K&N- it'll be the last one I need.

Our 1981 mk1 Fiesta was in need of some TLC when we bought her a couple of years ago. This was exactly what she got.

After having this rebuilt and having upgraded the engine with Ford RS parts and a Weber 36 double carbs setup, we finished the engine with a high compression head (10.3 to 1), a Pertronix electronic ignition, a 40kV coil and Accel Super Stock plug wires, together with a set of Bosch Super 4 plugs.

This all made the car feel and drive much better, mpg increased from 32mpg to 39mpg, but she still missed some 1981 retro pizazz under the bonnet. The K&N filter gave her just that. After a couple of thousands of miles we were pleasantly surprised, as she became more and more responsive, and the mpg increased to 44mpg combined (city, b-road and highway).

(The mpg is calculated using the US Gallon.)

Hai frds,
I just finished installing the 1060 model k&n filter to my hero honda hunk bike. It has changed the overall performance of my bike which was unexpected. The pick up and milage was increased and the bike became smooth to drive. Thanks to K&N.......................

Great product guys. I installed a new exhaust on my truck and didn't feel the real power until I bought the K&N filter. Much better gas mileage and power than with standard filter. I'm so impressed that I am now saving for the whole new intake system. P.S. I have an old ford ranger and it feels like a modern day car. Now I want the T-Shirt.

Great to read all the testimonials, and I'd have to say that having used K&N filters all my days - I would agree with all the praise!

Now a bit older and owner of a Lotus 1.8 Elise S, I needed something to make this already special car even more exiting. So fitted the Apollo kit and must say that this is the best induction kit I have used.

The extra sound from the Apollo is only apparent when the gas pedal is almost at the end of it's travel, so there is no kiddy boy-racer sound to be had here!
Extra flexibility is evident throughout the rev-range, and the car pulls much more cleanly to the red line - just what I wanted!

Other kits don't come close when it comes to vehicle application suitability, and it is obvious research and design time/energy has been put into making this great little filter work for my car.

Criticisms would be the slightly cheap plastic which broke from its thread used in the 1/4 breather attachment (goes into the new moulded intake pipe) I fixed this with trusty 'ISOPON P38 easy sand'
Elise owners - DO NOT tighten this to the end of the thread.
The instructions- although detailed, should include removal of the wheel and inner wheel arch lining to access the air-box clips and mounting bolts, and for easy instalment of the new flexi-pipe which sits at the car's side vent.

Thanks K&N and good job once again!

I have been utilizing K and N filters and air intake systems now for 15 years and I tell everyone to use them without hesitation. The K and N is simply an excellent product without a doubt. When I purchase a vehicle the first upgrade I purchase is a K and N filter or an intake. My 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee with the Hemi already runs good - with the K and N intake it runs great-smooth-sounds nice-good mileage. Works in conjunction with my other upgrades to give me a real world 24.3 mpg on the interstate and 15.5 or better in town.

Thanks K&N, for the awesome cold air intake system. It was easy to install and has given me at least 10-12 extra horses under the hood. I've also gained another 2-3mpg which is helpful when gas is so expensive. I'm not much of a mechanic but I did have a buddy watch as I installed the performance part and was surprised at how easy it was to install. Thanks again. I will definitely recommend getting a K&N Cold Air Intake to any and all of my friends.

I have been using your filter since my car had about 60,000 miles.  I am now at about 207,000 miles and my car still does not burn any oil.  There is no lifter knocks or any signs of an old engine.

I live in Illinois and drive the Tristate Tollway (I294) ever day.  It has been under construction for the last two years, but this year they have stepped up the work a lot.  I am continually driving through dust and most times and don't even want to wash my car because I know it will be all dusty the next day.  I had cleaned my filter in the spring April or May of  2009  and driven approximately 6000 miles since I just cleaned it today.  

I thought with all the dust that I should probably clean it again.  When I opened the compartment and first saw the filter from the engine side, I thought it was still OK (It looked like the day I last cleaned it.).  Then I looked at the other side that was extremely dirty.  I sprayed the filter with your Air filter cleaner and let it sit the suggested 10 minutes.  When I rinsed the filter, there was actual mud or perhaps concrete dust coming off the air side of the filter.  I washed it again and again there was the same mud, but to a lesser degree.   After four washings I finally got it clean.

I would hate to think of all those people running I294 with paper air filters.  When I used to change the paper filter it was always dirty on the inside.  I assume this let some dirt in the engine.  Yours was just as clean as when I last cleaned it, on the engine side.

I think your filter may have saved my Monte Carlo engine from a problem, even though it has high mileage that some people would consider a normal death.

I am looking to 300,000 miles.  Thank you for keeping my engine clean and operating for the next 100.000 miles.

My father just bought his first new car in 15 years, a 2009 Toyota Corolla with a 1.8.   He loved his new car but said it needed a little something. I was thinking of getting him just a drop in K&N air filter but ended up buying the Typhoon intake system.  I asked him if I could take it for a little spin and swung by my house to install the kit.  I had it in and was back to his house in 45min. The install was extremely easy and could be done by anybody. This intake really woke the car up and I will never forget the smile on his face when he got a little tire in second gear. I would recommend this product for anyone looking to add a little spunk to their Corolla.

Thanks K&N!
