The K&N 57-2573 FIPK air intake system replaces the restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing in some Ford Explorer models. K&N intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as they smooth and straighten air flow. This allows your Explorer’s engine to inhale a larger amount of air than the factory air filter assembly. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine’s RPM range. The 57-2573 air intake comes with a chrome topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield that installs into the previous air box space. Air is directed through an aerodynamically engineered intake tube into the engine’s throttle body for a guaranteed power gain. The tube accommodates the factory mass air sensor as well as a replacement silicone crank case vent hose and brake booster vent hose. The oversized cone shaped air filter can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install usually in 90 minutes or less using the existing factory mounting points. The tools needed are a screwdriver, ratchet set and an Allen wrench. K&N 57 Series FIPK's are street legal in all 50 US states and come with K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty.

This little fuel filter does make a big difference in how the flow of fuel passes and cleans the fuel to improve the burning efficiency. I always replace the fuel filter on my 2001 ford explorer sport and this time I decided to get this one from K&N. I have always known that the air filters from K&N are far superior that the conventional ones, but I was not aware they also make fuel filters and oil filters. I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to keep their auto running more than what they were intended to.

The K&N cold air intake kit is great on my 2005 Ford Explorer. I ordered the kit about 2 years ago. I pull a heavy trailer. The explorer is barely big enough to pull it. Installing this kit is a BIG help in letting the engine breathe. It sounds great and makes me feel better too, putting this load on my car. The installation was straight forward and the instructions were excellent. The installation was no problem. Only 2 minor issues. The airflow sensor mounting pad had a casting lap that deformed the mounting surface. I was able to smooth it out with a sharp knife and light sanding. The other issue was that I mounted the filter such that it was riding hard on the bottom of the intake box. This was my fault. I didn't find out until I took the filter off to clean and re-oil it and found a very small worn spot on the filter. When I install this new filter I will make sure that the filter is free from interference all around. Thanks for a great product I'll be using K&N from here on out.

Simply the BEST on the market. I have used them in all of my vehicles. They are easy to install and you will immediately notice a boost in power and a small improvement in the gas mileage. Easy to clean and very durable. Spend the extra money and try one in your car or truck. You will save that money the first year in gasoline. I have them in my 2014 Mustang V6 Coupe and my 2013 Ford Explorer XLT V6.
