HIGH-FLOW AIR FILTER™ DESIGNED FOR OUTSTANDING PROTECTION

Most factory disposable paper filters only “surface load” contaminants—collecting them on the surface of the media, which over time can reduce the filter’s efficiency due to clogging. Alternatively, High-Flow Air Filters™ “depth load” contaminants; multiple layers of cotton fibers capture particles on many levels. Because the contaminants are incorporated into the filter fibers, the filter can still operate without significantly reducing its performance.

The High-Flow Air Filter™ included in the 69-1505TWR intake kit is oversized with a conical shape, providing a greater surface area and allowing for a service interval of up to 100,000 miles between cleanings (under normal highway driving conditions). High-Flow Air Filters feature an oiled, layered design—providing up to 50% more airflow than a traditional paper filter. When your filter does need to be cleaned, you can use the K&N Recharger® Kit (99-5000 or 99-5050) to quickly and easily restore your filter’s performance. Each K&N intake (and filter!) is designed to last for the life of your vehicle.

WARRANTY

Each intake system comes with a 10-Year/Million Mile Limited Warranty. Furthermore, using a K&N replacement air intake system will not void your factory warranty; in the U.S., manufacturers must provide evidence that an aftermarket part is the cause of a necessary repair in order to void or deny warranty coverage. The Consumer Products Warranty Act of 1975 (also known as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) protects consumers’ rights to their warranty coverage.

DYNAMOMETER RESULTS

When buying a K&N performance air intake system, you’re protected by the guarantee that you’ll gain horsepower and torque after installation!

During dynamometer testing, a 2017 Honda Civic Type R with a factory air intake system was recorded at 292.4-hp at 6,122 RPM. After installation of 69-1505TWR, the same vehicle was recorded at 305.0-hp at 6,122 RPM—an estimated increase of 12.6-horsepower. The torque also increased from 254.6 lb.-ft. to 274.0 lb.-ft.—an estimated increase of 19.4 lb.-ft. at 3,731 RPM.
