Jonathan runs K&N’s valve covered breather filters, K&N nozzle filters (E-3003) and K&N’s big block Chevy oil filters. “Since I run the motor on methanol we have to change the oil filter frequently,” he said. “When we redo the engine and pull the oil pan out we noticed it stays clean, it’s unreal.” Jonathan said K&N oil filters are a key component for his motor.
K&N Fuel Injection Line Air Filters (E-3003) are a unique way to protect a high performance engine from contaminants through aeration holes in the fuel injection nozzles. These filters slip onto the injector nozzle and protect the aeration hole from dust and debris. Sold individually, these filters have a 1 ¼ outside diameter and a 1 1/16 height and fit securely over ¼ to ½ fuel injection nozzles.
“My job at K&N helps me with racing. I have a degree in engineering, but I come to work and love to study air flow,” said Jonathan. “I also listen to the people I work with at K&N and go home and see what new knowledge I can apply to my engine.”
K&N Engineering’s premium Performance Gold Oil Filter has many features to satisfy the demands of racers such as drilled safety wire holes for racing, heavy duty construction and a sturdy one-inch wrench nut to make oil filter removal quick and easy. “We just jack the car up and plop it off,” said Jonathan. “It’s so easy to remove, that it has taken me as little as 3 minutes, very awesome.”
Jonathan’s said his last two years of racing have been his best. “In 2004 I won the championship for the southern California Super Eliminator Series,” he said. “In 2005 I finished second in the Mike’s Transmission Top Comp races in Las Vegas, Nevada. I missed the championship by ten points, and that was a heartbreaker.”
Jonathan’s racing team is a family affair. His brother Daniel and father Nick are part of Fiello Racing. “I love to work on the car, it is relaxing and so much fun,” Jonathan said. “For me, it’s the love of racing.”
