ABOUT K&N

For over 50 years, K&N® has been an industry-leader in automotive filtration and technology—offering products to increase performance, protection, and longevity in thousands of vehicle applications for consumers worldwide.

OUR HISTORY

In the early 1960s, two motorcycle racers, Ken Johnson and Norm McDonald (K&N), developed a ground-breaking new idea for an air filter—one that could perform under the demands of dusty, dirty off-road environments. After experimenting with numerous types of filter media, they discovered that an oiled cotton design allowed the filter to not only capture contaminants very efficiently, but also allowed it to be washed and reused, and the original K&N® High-Flow Air Filter™ was born. Five decades later, K&N® is still innovating industry-leading filtration technology, and offers outstanding protection for everything from top-fuel dragsters to commuter vehicles across the globe.

WHAT MAKES K&N THE BEST IN THE AFTERMARKET?

All K&N products undergo rigorous testing to ensure that they adhere to demanding quality standards. We stand behind our products with some of the most extensive warranties in the aftermarket.
Horsepower Testing

HORSEPOWER TESTING

Horsepower and torque claims are based on testing of an actual vehicle on a dynamometer before and after a K&N product has been installed. Horsepower/torque testing is performed on Dyno Jet 248 and SuperFlow 880E dynamometers, which measure actual brake horsepower and torque at the wheel(s) receiving power from the drive train. For most intake systems, dynamometer charts are available on the individual product pages under “Resources”.

AIRFLOW TESTING

K&N performs all airflow testing on a SuperFlow Corporation SF-1020 flow bench. The SF-1020 is a computerized flow bench capable of measuring airflow rates up to 1020 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at test pressures of up to 65 inches of water. To read the details of air filter testing protocol, please visit the airflow testing protocol page.
