Product Description

The K&N FilterCharger® air filter is designed to achieve high, virtually unrestricted air flow while maintaining filtration levels critical to ensure long engine life. K&N’s automotive OE (original equipment) replacement air filters generally add 1-4 horsepower. The secret to their success lies in the unique characteristics of the filter medium that was originally developed by K&N all those years ago in the dust, sweat and tears of desert motocross racing. They just wanted to win races and stumbled on a cotton filtration technology destined to be great. Their high flow cotton gauze air filter is washable, reusable and built to last for the life of an automotive or motorcycle engine. K&N air filters consist of four to six sheets of cotton gauze layered between two sheets of aluminium wire mesh. This media is then pleated and oiled to enhance its filtering capabilities and overall performance. K&N Air Filters were created for an environment requiring maximum horsepower and enhanced acceleration in addition to protection from the dirt and dust of off-road racing. The result is an air filter that allows dramatically more air into an engine, is washable and reusable, and will protect your engine for the life of your vehicle.

Engine Protection, Filtration

Anyone can flow more air. The trick is to flow more air safely. K&N believe they hit the sweet spot – an optimal blend of high air flow, filtration efficiency, durability and dust capacity. They take filtration seriously. K&N Air Filter media has been tested both in-house and by independent labs using the ISO5011 test developed by the Society of Automotive Engineers. In addition K&N test many of their filters both in and out of the OE airbox ensuring proper fit and function. Their goal is to design filters with the maximum possible airflow achievable while providing guaranteed engine protection.

The Importance of Oil

A K&N Air Filter is made of 4 to 6 layers of cotton gauze sandwiched between two epoxy-coated aluminium wire screens. The cotton is treated with a specially formulated grade of oil causing tackiness throughout the cotton’s microscopic strands. The nature of the cotton allows high volumes of airflow, and when combined with the tackiness of the oil creates a powerful filtering media that ensures engine protection. In contrast, most other media cannot maintain the same balance of airflow and filtration throughout the filter's life without sacrificing one or the other. With a K&N Air Filter, there is no sacrifice.

Testing – Laboratory and Real World

K&N uses independent laboratories to help ensure that their products meet or exceed your high performance and high filtration demands. Better yet, they conduct their own testing at a state-of-the-art in-house testing laboratory. K&N’s dedication to providing a first-class air filter can also be seen outside the testing laboratory. Consider that K&N has sold more than 20 million air filters since 1969.

Never Replace Your Air Filter Again

Handmade in the USA and in the United Kingdom using only the finest materials, K&N OE Replacement Air Filters are washable and reusable. Regardless of what you’ve heard, it’s almost impossible to wash your K&N Air Filter too much. Inside their testing laboratory, they have washed and re-oiled one K&N Air Filter more than 100 times and it still performs up to specification. Depending on your driving conditions, K&N recommend cleaning your air filter every 50,000 miles. The K&N Recharger Filter Care Service Kit is available to purchase from our shop.

Fuel Economy

Fuel economy testing and mileage claims are a tricky business. Just ask the EPA, whose website states, "EPA’s fuel economy estimates are designed to allow consumers to comparison shop. Your fuel economy will almost certainly vary from EPA’s fuel economy rating. This is based on a number of factors, such as weather, road conditions, your driving and maintenance habits, and your use of air conditioning." A lot of exaggerated claims are made in the marketplace by products claiming to improve fuel economy. K&N makes no general fuel economy claims, however they do encourage you to try their air filter for yourself. Keeping air filter restriction as low as possible can be an important tool, among others, for maintaining high mileage.

K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty®

K&N warrants its street vehicle OE Replacement Air Filters for one million miles. When used properly and found to be defective, return your filter and the receipt from purchase and K&N will replace it free of charge.
