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 provide even more airflow at lower restriction than a K&N O/E replacement filter which is always 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.

I bought this air filter for my 2006 Saab 9-3 Aero 2.8L V6 Turbo. After ordering it my Saab authorized mechanic told me to be aware, that it may not work, and cause the car to not run properly. He also said I could trigger a check engine light using this filter!after hearing all of that I was worried. Once I received it, I installed it immediately! It took about 10 minutes. Then I was off on a test drive! Right away I noticed a difference! Acceleration was smoother, and quicker! It even seemed a bit more throaty! So I went through the city, and headed for the highway. I was at highway speed before I was on, just going up the ramp! I was, and am very impressed with this filter! I've even noticed more milage between fill-ups! There are no check engine light issues at all! This filter is truly amazing, and I'm completely satisfied! Now I'll never need to buy a new filter! That alone is worth the price of admission. I'll use K&N products for every vehicle I ever own! I highly recommend there products!

Fitted a K&N E-9060 in my SAAB 9000 Aero - I have 12 years automotive tuning experience, I don't use any other filters. K&N has been in this game for a long time, with good reason - the products work, they are tested, guaranteed and best of all, sensibly priced.

Great filters, great performance. Thanks!

Nice product!  I own a 2001 SAAB 9-5 AERO with 128,000 miles and just purchased my first K & N filter...very impressed.  After 2 tanks of gas I'm getting about 2 to 3 more MPG's (city) and the performance...wow!  Even though I never believed it...Aeros are reportedly faster than a stock porsche 911 of the same year.  However, after replacing with the K & N filter, I'm a believer!  Not sure how much horsepower I've gained but the car is much much more responsive and will flat put you back in your seat if you punch it!  I never thought an air filter would make that big of a difference, but it did.
