Chapter 1 - What Do I Have Under My Hood and Why Should I Care?

10/7/2013
More
There's a good chance a restrictive paper air filter is housed in your air box. The amount of air restriction caused by an air filter is directly related to engine performance and gas mileage. Paper air filters, one of the cheapest components in your car, are a win-win for automotive service centers -- cheap to supply, and a great way to bill for service - but a lose-lose for you, the consumer, because you are the one who is paying to keep replacing them.

Chapter 2 - An Air Filter That Mattered

10/7/2013
More
Historically, air filters have not received a whole lot of attention or comparative analysis. They were designed to provide adequate engine protection at an inexpensive cost - Hence, the disposable air filter covered the need. K&N's understanding of the value and importance of engine performance led us down a very different path.

More
While other air filter companies sold disposable filters, asking consumers to waste money through the endless cycle of buy, throw away and re-buy.

10/7/2013
More
It is very easy to build a filter that has a "K&N look" even if the materials used are completely different. It has gone on for years and we cringe every time we see a counterfeit that is of low quality. When comparing air filters, you must consider the efficiency, capacity and airflow values and you must know how they were measured.

Chapter 6 - A Natural and Remarkable Filtration Approach

10/7/2013
More
It almost seems incredible that a cotton air filter can provide such high filtration efficiency while dramatically increasing airflow. When you pick one up and hold it to a light source, you can literally see light passing through the filter medium. It would be natural to assume this high flow medium sacrifices filtration ability and yet it does not.

Chapter 7 - Cotton is More Complicated Than You'd Think

10/7/2013
More
Just like nature, cotton gets complicated the deeper you look. How cotton is kneaded and combined at a strand level impacts how many microfilaments are contained in a linear inch.

Chapter 18 - Mileage

10/7/2013
More
Many of our customers write us about the mileage improvement they experience after installing our filters and intake kits.
