K&N RC-5173 Universal Clamp-On Air Filter Product Reviews

I always keep a spare. These filters are easy to install and give me more air to make more power.

I run this filter with a FULL K&N cold air kit(box and tube) on my 2012 Ford F-150 with the 5.0 V-8. This filter and setup help the truck breathe so much better and is complimented further by the exhaust I have. It tows better and gets increased fuel economy when towing and empty, it also boosts the 0-60 and off road/ deep snow capabilities. The dealership even speaks of how much better a filter it is compared to what they offer. Great product and I use K&N air and oil filters on ALL my vehicles. Why not have the best you can get with just a bit more cost and it be better protection and performance in the same product.

I bought the RC-5173 as a backup for my cold air induction system. I am very happy with K&N products. On the road I get all the power I need and gas mileage is great.
