What a difference - added a stock K&N to an 05 Nissan Altima 2.5s.......just a commuter vehicle but what a difference - higher revs, smoother shifting, and yesterday calculated 2mpg more in fuel - 26.9-29.1 mpg!  What a difference!

I purchased the 57-3050 FIPK air system in January along with Gibson headers and Flowmaster dual exhaust for my 2005 GMC Sierra (5.3 engine) crew cab and haven't regretted it yet. The K&N stands out in the crowd with that throaty sound when my foot is on the gas. Along with the headers and the exhaust system it's hard not to keep your foot out of the gas. My next thing to do to my GMC is Pulsar Plugs.

I had never used K&N or others, but I had my own ideas about a high power air filter. I tested first in my 2 stroke bike, a Yamaha RX 135. It is really amazing now. Speed for 0 to 60 is 4.6 seconds and is also excellent in fuel efficiency.

I just recently bought a 2005 GMC Canyon with a 3.5L I5. I had never even heard of a In Line 5 Cyl. engine before so I was not sure what to expect. Well to my suprise I was shocked at the performance of it. I went right out and bought a K&N filter yesterday and after installing it in the truck yesterday afternoon, WOW!!! This has made a HUGE difference! I can't wait to see what my gas mileage will do since my HP has increased ALOT. All I have to say is THANKS K&N for opening my eyes to the great world of accelaration! I will be buying one for my wifes car as well. GREAT JOB!

My 2002 Ford Explorer is another car since I changed the oil and air filters on her with K&N's. The engine sounds like if it had some kind of headers. Acceleration and fuel efficiency are much better. WOW, superb products.

Just added a K&N filter to my 1995 2.0l Dohc Chrysler/Dodge Neon. Originally the Neon suffers from a poorly designed intake system, so I noticed a GREAT performance increase, 0-60 times improved and MPG increased, and the sound is great too. Also matches the colour of my car. Well worth the 70$ I paid.

Hey I had just bought a used 2005 PT Cruiser, 2.4 liter auto trans, loved the car but was having buyer's remorse because it was only getting 19 mpg, this is hilly Seattle driving not freeway. Anyway did some research and found out about K&N drop in filters, just thought I would try it. I did modify the OEM filter box, the intake was only 1 3/4 diameter, I opened it up to 3 with PVC fittings from Home Depot. Here's the results: from just under 19 mpg to just over 25 mpg! I repeat this is hilly Seattle driving, man I was impressed! Seems to shift smoother too, no noticable increase in noise under normal use, does sound better when I punch it though... this poor PT was starving for air. I am going to preach this to all my friends. GREAT PRODUCT!

WOW is all I can say. I run a 2000 Tahoe Z71, old body style with the 5.7. I have a K&N drop in replacement filter in my wife's 2001 Suburban and thought I would give it a try on my rig. I off-road quite a bit in Moab, Utah (the 4WD capital of the world, IMO). I got this rig around December 1 with 85K on in pristine condition. I immediately changed all filters, oil etc. so I would know what I was starting with. Unfortunately, I dropped in a non-OEM air filter-mid grade. After only 5K, 4 months and many off-road trips, I finally checked the air filter two days ago. Holy smokes!! The dirt/sand from Moab was literally falling off the fully clogged filter. I decided to step-up and fork over for the K&N. What an instant difference in torque/off the line acceleration! I know some of that is simply getting a new filter, but the nice sound I am getting too is all K&N. The Tahoe is running better than ever. I will keep an eye on gas mileage and report back, but I fully expect an increase. I will never run anything but K&N from now on! Thanks!

HOLY HELL...I bought a K&N system for my 1999 chevy K1500 and I feel the horses under me everytime I do a brake stand.

Wow!!! I just installed my Typhoon Air Intake System for my 04 Mazda RX-8 and I can feel the difference significantly. The acceleration was faster and the sound was so good that I turned off my radio on the way home to hear that deep roaring sound. I might not be listening to the radio for a while....Money well spent!!! Thanks K&N keep it up!!!

I installed a K&N fuel injection performance kit on my 95 Ford F-150 with a 5.8L.  I immediately noticed a difference driving out of the driveway. The truck rev'ed up quicker and the acceleration was better.  They claim an average increase of 9.33HP at about 3600rpm, on my application but it sure seems like I have one of the trucks that got above average numbers.  As for fuel mileage, I'm not sure as I haven't put many miles on it since I also had some other upgrades at the same time. It also sounds great.

I just installed a K&N air filter in my 2007 Pontiac Soltice GXP and took it for a ride out on a farm road and I have to say it really performs well. With the vehicle's turbo I was getting about 10 lbs of boost at 5300 rpm. Now, I get about 18 lbs of boost at 6000 rpm. I estimate that I am adding about 8-10 hp on top of the stock 260 hp. So far so good. I plan to use the recharger kit to clean as an alternative to replacing standard air cleaners at every maintenance schedule. I eventually want to install a cold air intake, but for now, this air filter will give me the performance I want.

I've had a K&N Filter in my 1995 Saturn SC2 for the last Ten Years! It still works Great! I just bought a Honda Ruckus Scooter last Summer! I changed the Stock Filter for a K&N! All I can say is WOW!!!!! The Throttle Response is a lot Quicker and Cruising is a lot Faster! The Ruckus idles the same as with the old Filter, which is what I like! Some people were telling me I needed to Re-Jet my Carb with the K&N! I just dropped in the Filter without a Re-Jet! The Number of the Filter I used on my Ruckus is 33-2238! Thanks K&N!

I recently installed a Universal cone filter in my 2007, 796cc Suzuki Alto (MPFI, Euro III) that has done about 26000Km. This thing really works. The cats roaring like a beast! Sounds like I've installed headers!! Acceleration has become much, much quicker. Cruising on the highway is silky smooth. But put your foot down and the beast is back again. On lifting my foot off on the accelerator pedal the noise from the crankcase breather back to the air intake is clearly audible now, making me feel like I'm in The Fast And The Furious!! Mileage has definately gone up. Now I refuel twice a week, where as needed to refuel thrice a week earlier, for the same commute. And what shocked me was when I did my emission (Same machine, same fuel, same car), the readings showed that CO levels halved from 0.63 to 0.36 %vol now and HC levels reduced by about 58ppm.
Looking forward to some headers and a few confidential gimmics!
You guys at K&N, keep the faith and keep up the good work.

I installed the K&N Typhoon system on my 2.4L Cobalt SS and it really opened the engine up.  The thing growls! I had watched videos on the internet but I had no idea how beastly it would sound.  Plus, it gives me better highway punch, and better low end punch.

Great product!


March 23, 2009
Over the past half year, I've contemplated whether buying a K&N filter or not. I finally bit the bullet and did it. I have a 2005 Chevy Malibu with a 2.2L 4-Cylinder engine. With a stock paper filter, I was getting anywhere from 30-38 MPG. With this high performance filter, I now get anywhere between 38-44 MPG. WOW!!! I can get over 40 MPG out of a sedan thanks to this filter. That's impressive. My car also feels like it has better throttle response too. This filter is worth the money. I highly recommend this product as this is the only filter you need to buy.

I live out here in the moutains and I have a Ford F150 ext cab with 4.6L. Before I installed the high output intake kit the motor was working hard to get up the hills but now I fly up the hills and the power is awesome. I fly down the roads now and you can hear the power. People turn there heads when I open it up, it's awesome. I am thinking of adding a throttle spacer next to give it a few more horses plus a nice high flow muffler that would be awesome.

My bike is a single cylinder air cooled Apache RTR 160. I got your RC-1060 air filter fixed on the carb with a mild rejetting job. Now the bike has stunning performance with 1.4hp extra power as measured on the dyno. Awesome, truly amazing to see the bike snort and swallow huge gobs of clean air!!!!

I put the air induction system on my 1998 Chevy Blazer, along with a new flowthru 50' series muffler, 3 inch exaust from the catalitic converter back, and changed the fuel filter.  Engine 4.3 liter or 260 cubic inches.

My mileage went from 15mi in town to 19mi per gal and 18mpg on road to 23.9 on the road.

Feels like 20 horse power pick up.  What do you think?

I have a 2006 Hemi Durango and just installed the FIPK intake system. Man was that an excellent choice. The added power is very nice, it had enough power to begin with, but more is better. As for the sound, that I was not expecting. The engine is a lot louder (in a good way), it sounds like I added an exhaust. My Hemi finally sounds like a HEMI! Gas mileage on the other hand did not really change I was getting 16 MPG average before and still averaging 15.9 to 16.1 per tank after the install. I can’t really complain as my left foot weighs 400 pounds. Oh well I didn’t buy a HEMI for gas mileage. I love this intake, it sounds killer and the power is very sweet. I would recommend this to everyone I talk to. Thank you K&N for making a great product!

All I can really say is WOW. This air filter is fantastic. I own a 1996 v6 Ford Thunderbird and the pep my car achieved after installing the K&N factory replacment air filter, I will now never buy another air filter from any other company .

Thank you

I just had to tell you thanks for a terrific air filter. I left my 2002 silverado 1500 6-liter truck in my pole shed when my daughter came home for Christmas break. The mice had a hay day. They took all the fire wall insulation and packed the air filter compartment full. If it wasn't for the strong fiber and wire mesh I could have trashed my engine. What a GREAT product.

Hey K&N, I have a 2006 Dodge Charger R/T with the 5.7 Hemi. I have put performance mufflers on it and just wanted a few more ponies so I chose your knn-69-2526 cold air intake system. So easy to install! It said 90 min, only took 40 min. I took it out to see what it would do, God bless us all! I found Big Foot! He is under my hood & I pissed him off when I punched it. Great sound, but very quiet while cruising. What more can you ask for? I am now around 409H.P. Can't wait to see the mpg! Thanks K&N.

I just bought the typhoon kit cold air intake system and got it installed on my brand new 2009 2.4L Mitsubishi Lancer GT-S. It is Awesome!!!!! It sounds soooo amazing. I find myself not even listening to music on my car. I rather just listen to the air intake, lol. The car pulls harder. U do feel the extra 6 hp that it gives. I recommend that all purchase a K&N intake. Its well worth it....you will be 100% satisified. Very Good Job K&N. I'll be recommending K&N intakes to all my fellow Marines.

April 15 2005 you published a photo of a hybrid system that I made for my Honda powered lawnmower. Well it's now another 4 yrs on and the system still works a treat. I cleaned the filter in May 2005 and that was it. Today I have removed it and checked the snorkel with a clean white cloth. There is NO discoloration apparent. The filter is totally choka with crud and still it stops penetration. Bloody amazing.

I was waiting on your air filter for my LR2, and finally got it. 2 litres per 100 km instant economy. City - it was 14 litres, now 11-12, 13 on highway, now 10-11. I had it before on Altima - the car became irrelevant to the grade of the gasoline - 87,89,91 - fuel economy and power remained the same. Guys, you are awesome designers!

Hallo... liebes K&N Team

ich habe heute endlich den K&N High-Flow Air Filter für meinen BMW 540iA bekommen.
Nach dem Einbau bin ich natürlich gleich eine Runde gefahren... und bin begeistert.
Ok... einen Leistungszuwachs spürt man bei 300PS nicht sehr... aber das Gas spricht besser an und im höheren Drehzahlbereich lässt sich eine bessere Beschleunigung verbuchen.

PS: der Klang kommt natürlich bei einem V8 auch nicht zu kurz^^

Danke K&N

I just bought the basic K&N Filter for my 2009 Camry SE I4 and in an instant the pedal felt better and the acceleration feels more aggressive. I cannot even begin to say in words how much this is needed in every car as a stock option directly from the dealership. If you are doing any performance upgrades or anything of that sort then I highly recommend a K&N Filter. DO NOT LEAVE OUT K&N FILTER WHEN YOU ARE UPGRADING YOUR CAR IN ANY WAY......PERIOD! PHENOMINAL PRODUCT

My used Honda City 1.5 exi(2000) felt dead and almost felt like I was driving with the parking brake on,especially while the aircon was turned on. There was late throttle response and a conspicuous lack in power. It's been a year now since fitting a cartridge type K&N filter and the car runs as if it were tuned by MUGEN HONDA!!!

One complaint though is that the oil and cleaning kits are not available with the dealers in Pune MH India and my filter did not come with the K&N stickers (I love them) .

Hey what's up guys?  Just installed my KN, in my 98 Cadillac Deville Concours, and let me tell you... It runs better than a Cadillac.  It's not only increased my horsepower, but has given me more miles to the gallon.  Girls have also said that it sounds a lot better. Thanks KN for manufacturing good products.

Arribaaa KN!!!!!!!!

I wasn't honestly expecting too much from this air filter, but I did get a small but noticable gain on my Vandura (about 2-5hp), which is useful given the sheer weight the Chevy 305 has to move. The real reason I bought it, though, is that it never needs to be replaced which is a real money saver in the long run.

Keep cranking them out, K&N!


March 3, 2009
Installed on a 94 v6 stang with the air silencer gone, the sweet sound of the k&n filter inhaling air is just beautiful. Though the gains are small depending on your other mods, but this should be a must have for any vehicle whether you want performance or mileage.

The cheapest and most needed mod, Thank you K&N!

Yo le instalé un filtro K&N tipo galleta a un Yaris sedan 1.5, el promedio de kilometraje era de 55 kms/gal, y mejoró a 57 kms/gal, ademas se siente mejor respuesta despues de las 3000 rpms, recomendado.

It really works!  Just installed a drop-in filter in my 7 years old Nissan Cefiro A33 2.0G Excimo V6 2 weeks ago.  My fuel consumption has improved by about 5%! My car now feel lighter!, my car's engine runs smoother & quieter!, engine response is quicker!, my car acceleration is faster!.  It's like my car is brand new again!. Thank you K&N. This is a great product!.

I have a Chevy Lacetti (Optra) and I bought a stock replacement K&N filter and I want to say I`m very glad to have made this choice. The fuel consupmtion dropped and the gears change quicker. I feel more power when accelerating and the sound is better. Thank you!

I just installed a cold air intake on my 1998 F150 4.6 4x4 and went from 10 city to 14.5 and 17 highway to 19 or 20 and the thing screams like a cheetah on cocaine. I love it. I could kiss the man that invented this amazing product.


March 1, 2009
I recently installed the cold air intake system on my 2006 Tundra. I'm impressed with the increase in the overall power curve through the RPM range. The sound is impressive, reminiscent of an old Holly 4 barrel carburetor set up loud and bitchin! I would highly recommend this product for anyone looking to squeeze some extra HP and give their Tundra additional coolness.

I recently put a K&N air filter on my 2006 Hyundai Tucson.  I travel extensively and on the first trip with the new filter my mileage went from 24-25 MPG average to an amazing 28.950 MPG!  This was over the same route and same speeds.  The only thing I can contribute this to is the K&N filter. I am convinced!!!

I had fitted R-1060 conical universal filter in my Honda Unicorn, which had already clocked 52000 kilometers.  Before fitting the filter, it was returning me an economy of 52 kilometers to a liter of petrol.

I purchased it on 19th Feb 09 from Hardeep at GP Road and was first surprised to see how simple it was to fit.  The existing air filter was untouched and the air duct connecting it and the carburetor was removed off.  I touched the inside of the duct and was shocked to see grains of sand that had passed through the air filter (I am not sure how it is going to change with K&N).  Fitting was done in seconds and my first impression on starting the engine was not good.  The sound had changed.  There is a roar as if the exhaust had got punctured.  The roar was not as loud as damaged exhaust, but it sounded like so.  I still do not like the sound :-(

The moment I started to ride, I experienced an apparent increase in torque developed by the engine.  Within few meters of driving and gear changes, I could notice that I can shift gears early (I was now able to shift to 5th gear at approx 2000 RPM, which was achieved only at approx 2200 RPM).  This gave a hope to improve the fuel economy and there by will justify the cost.  I calculated that an even an increase of one kilometer per liter will pay me back with in a month.

I had already had half a tank of fuel and hence I was forced to wait till I hit reserve. I was taken back to see my Unicorn gave me an economy of 55.8 kilometers per liter.

The bike is due to its service and the fuel economy test was done with half tank of fuel consumed with stock air filter.  So, with all these, I guess I can obtain more economy.

Readjusting the calculations, now I can take my money back in just 400kms of riding!

I am truly impressed with its performance (but bit sad with the engine note - I would really like the old purr of the engine) and regret my ignorance of driving without it for 52000 kilometers.  Again a math surprised me. If I had fitted it on day one (as it does not affect warranty - as claimed by K&N) I would have saved Rs.5000 just on fuel!

It is a must and I would recommend for any hesitant buyer.

Just fitted the K&N Typhoon™ Air Intake System for my Honda Accord 2.4 Type S on a 2003. This system looks great under the bonnet and was fitted in just over a hour, the only problem with the kit is the jubilee clips supplied with the system are not really up to the job in my opinion (this is only MY opinion). Other than that the car sounds great, can not even hear the intake at normal driving speeds BUT the second you plant the pedal to the floor the engine transforms from a purring cat into growling bulldog. You have to hear it to believe it... and the power gain is noticable between 3000rpm and 5500rpm. Hope this helps anyone thinking of buying one of these systems.

I have a 1998 Cadillac Seville SLS 4.6L Northstar V-8 with under 82,000 miles. Went to a local speed shop and removed factory air filter system and replaced it with K&N cold air intake (short ram air) part No. RE-0950. This was the best thing I could have done, the new intake screams and you can actually feel the g-force difference. Compliments my aftermarket performance exhaust also. 5 stars to K&N. Next on the list is the oil filter.

I replaced the stock filter with K&N 33-2539 a month ago for my Citroen Xantia 3.0i V6 194 hp, myself.  Since then I have found the diffrence in a way that never happened before. It roars and hops. Also, acceleration at higher speed (140-180 kph) is fantastic, really. Worth investing for driving pleasure.  No other information has been collected yet.

2007 RMZ450 , I put a K&N air filter on my bike and noticed instant performance gains in throttle responce and power. I've had the filter on the bike for a year now without servicing the filter. This filter is still performing like the day I put it in !!!  The best product for the money.

I just bought a lightly used 2005 Acura MDX and one of the first things I did within my first week of ownership was put the stock replacement K&N air filter in the air box.  I had one in my previous car a 98 VW GTI VR6.  The K&N air filter is an absolute no brainer.  Do not wait any longer this is a decision that will turn out to be one of the best decisions you have ever made, and it's so simple and affordable.  

If you know your car... You can hear her finally breathing freely like she has always dreamed of.

...and yes it's true.  All of your stats will improve instantly, better gas mileage, and more horsepower.

I am a dedicated K&N owner for life (I'm only 30), and I do almost nothing else to my own cars, they go to the dealer or a certified shop for everything else, but this is so simple you would have to be foolish not to try on your own.  

Remember to google yourself some pointers on opening your factory air box properly if you need to.

The whole process took me about 15 minutes.

The best $40-$60 you will ever spend.
