K&N 57-0164 Air Intake

57i Series Kits > Performance Intake Kit
  • Guaranteed to increase horsepower
  • Designed to improve throttle response and engine sound
  • Replaces entire factory air intake system
  • Not legal for highway use in states adopting California emission regulations

  • K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty®
K&N 57i Series induction kits are specifically designed for each different vehicle and will free your car from the size restriction that comes with the factory air box. These economical kits can take a variety of different forms based on vehicle characteristics and available space under the hood. Each kit is designed to provide power throughout the RPM range. The extra surface area of these open-air air filters provides even more airflow at lower restriction than a K&N O/E replacement filter which is limited to the size of the factory air box. The larger air filter also captures and holds more dirt increasing its service life before a cleaning is required (up to 100,000 miles). The filter is either directly attached to the engine carburetor or throttle body or indirectly through a tube assembly running from the filter to the engine. All adapters are made from high quality materials such as steel, aluminum, silicon or reinforced nylon to ensure long life. 57i Intakes are not legal for use in California and other US States adopting California emission standards.

Hi Guys from the UK,

My son has installed K&N filters on his last few cars and is always singing its praises. He first experienced these amazing filters when he worked at the famous Silverstone Race Circuit in the UK. Well, he 'demanded' I install one on my beloved BMW convertible. The first thing I noticed was the fantastic noise then I experienced the power. I was very impressed.

My son has a BMW E36 2.8i Coupe and has filter with heatshield [ mine does not have this]. Just to prove a point he installed his filter with shield in my car yesterday and we took it for a test drive. I simply could not believe the amazing amount of extra pulling away power I had at 2500rpm - it was awesome!!!

So much so, that now I am in the process of having a K&N Apollo CIS filter fitted whilst having the car super chipped. So, between the both I am hoping that my car will have an amazing new lease of life. 'Boy-racers' just admire my lovely rear end when I leave them to simply ponder the question at the lights "what on earth has that lady got under her bonnet"!!!

Am recommending to all our colleagues who love and respect their cars. I shall install my old filter into my daughter's car - she needs to be converted also!
