23.1.2013 - 2008-2013 Audi R8 4.2L Gets Performance Air Filter Designed to Increase Horsepower and Torque

As subsidiary of Volkswagen, Audi has been producing award winning luxury vehicles (and a short stint of motorcycles) since 1910. With legendary technological heritage and sleek designs, Audi has set the bar for the sports car and sports sedan segments. However, there comes a point in time when a sports car just isn't good enough and that is where the Audi R8 comes in. This supercar incorporates some of the most technologically advanced features on the road and comes standard with Audi's legendary reliability and handling.

Utilizing the amazing Quattro all-wheel drive system, the R8's 430 horsepower 4.2 liter V8 propels it to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and to a top speed of 187 mph on the track. With all of this performance and legendary styling, how could anyone improve upon it?

K&N stepped up to the plate and gave performance enthusiasts a simple yet effective performance option. Designed to increase horsepower, the E-0668 highflow air filter replaces the restrictive OEM paper air filter in 2008-2013 Audi R8 models, allowing for increased airflow into the already potent V8.

Installation is simple, just replace the stock paper filter elements with the duel K&N high flow air filters and you're done.

Topped off with carbon fiber end caps, these filters not only look good but are also light in weight for added performance. K&N Part E-0668 comes with 2 air filters, one for each cylinder bank, making ordering and installation simple.

Engine compartment photo of E-0668 installed on an Audi R8 Washable, reusable and backed by K&N's famous Million Mile Limited Warranty, the E-0668 air filters will be the last air filters your Audi R8 will ever need. Who says added performance isn't as simple as 1-2-3? Buy. Install. Enjoy.

The Audi A7 Quattro is a sedan with a coupe-style roof and every German luxury carmaker has been producing their interpretation. The idea is to draw together the practicality of a sedan, while representing the sleek styling cues of a coupe. Since its debut last year the A7 immediately took its rightful position at the head of that class. For 2013 the Audi A7 returns with only minor cosmetic changes.

All North American 2013 A7 models are powered by a supercharged 3.0-liter V6 that produces 310 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque. There is also an A7 2.8L V6 version available in many locations other than the U.S. An eight-speed automatic transmission delivers power to all four wheels of these vehicles which makes for an exemplary balance of luxury and performance.

The A7 as well as the Audi A6 are statement cars designed to perform, and the K&N E-1983 replacement air filter is engineered to help them perform even better. This air filter is custom made to fit directly into your existing factory air box and it is not only designed to increase horsepower and acceleration while providing outstanding filtration, it will also be the last air filter you'll need to purchase.

Replacement Air Filter 33-2997 for 2012-13 BMW models
 
The BMW M135i is the successor to the 1-series M coupe, which is out of production. The M135i is part of a line of Beemers called M Performance Automobiles, which are positioned as a midway point between full-bore M cars and regular production BMWs. Outside the United States the M135i is available in a three and five door hatch, but car buyers in the US fear not, in 2013 a two-door notchback coupe version has crossed the Atlantic and is available for U.S. customers.

The new model features an extremely impressive 3-liter, straight six-cylinder engine that produces a remarkable 320HP. This permits the M135i to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in a mere 5.1 seconds and to reach a top speed of 155 mph (electronically limited). The BMW M135i’s unique body styling has been specially designed to handle the impressive power delivered by its powerful engine. The M135i is in fact the most powerful derivative of the second-generation 1-series.

Whether you are looking to own the M135i, 2013 ActiveHybrid 3 or any of the other five select BMW models listed below, your Beemer can see performance gains by simply upgrading to a K&N 33-2997 reusable air filter. Designed to fit directly into the existing BMW air box, this high flow air filter is engineered to increase horsepower and acceleration, while providing outstanding filtration and engine protection.

The 33-2997 is washable and reusable, making servicing as easy as following the simple cleaning instructions in a K&N Recharger Service Kit. Depending on your driving circumstances, performance air filter 33-2997 can go up to 50,000 miles before cleaning is necessary. With K&N's renowned Million Mile Limited Warranty, this will be the last air filter you’ll ever purchase for your Beemer.

K&N 33-2997 fits the following BMW vehicles:

2.2.2013 - Clamp-on Cone Air Filters with Adjustable Inlet Flange Offer Performance with Secure Attachment

Highslide JS
Red K&N Air Filter with Adjustable Inlet Flange
 
As many custom vehicle builders know, using quality products that are designed to be versatile and functional is a great strategy when modifying cars or trucks.

With all the different possible modifications that can be made on vehicles today, using products that look great and fit the job is key. When it comes to universal clamp-on air filters, K&N is the perfect source as they offer hundreds of filters in almost every size and shape you could need.

Adding to this big list of clamp-on air filters are four new inverted top air filters. The inverted top gives the filter more surface area for higher air flow capability and a long service life. These four universal air filters differ from typical universal filters in that they have an adjustable inlet flange allowing for the same air filter to be used with a 3 inch, 3.5 inch or 4 inch round intake tube. The flange size is controlled by using or not using two included inserts. K&N parts RG-1001RD, RG-1001BL, RG-1001WT have a base diameter of 6 inches and they are 5 1/2 inches tall. The only difference between these three air filters is the color of their filter media. RG-1001RD is red, RG-1001BL is blue and RG-1001WT is white. K&N part RG-1002RD has a base diameter of 6 inches but it is 9 1/2 inches tall. It has red filter media. Like other K&N universal air filters these filters use an ultra-strong molded pliable rubber flange, which absorbs vibration and allows for secure attachment.

K&N universal clamp-on air filters are washable and reusable, saving you from having to purchase new disposable paper air filters over and over. Simple to install and service when they get dirty, these filters are backed with a 1 year limited warranty.

To size an air filter for your exact needs and design, simply use the K&N Universal Air Filter Search.


5.2.2013 - 2011-2013 KTM Duke Motorcycle Models Increase Performance with K&N Upgrade

K&N Air Filter for KTM Duke 125/200 in Box
 
Since the moment it burst on the scene in 2011 the KTM Duke 125 has been crowned one of the most dramatically unique motorcycles to grace the complicated roads of India. The entry level single-cylinder machine is manufactured in India by KTM's partner, Bajaj Auto. The Duke 125 successfully addressed KTM's most youthful entry-level target group, which developed as a result of the new EU regulations that allow 16-year-olds to ride 125cc bikes with a maximum horsepower of 15 horsepower. Interestingly however, KTM dealer statistics showed an even split in 125 buyers between 16-18 year-olds, and everyone older than 18.

KTM introduced the Duke 200 the following year and is one of the most impressively detailed small displacement machines available anywhere. It has clearly raised the bar for performance motorcycles in India. The Duke 200 offers a sophisticatedly engineered, featherweight chassis with high-quality components all around and first-class brakes to maximize fun and rider safety. The refined four-stroke, single cylinder engine with fuel injection and six-gear transmission provides a surprisingly "big bike" feel and attitude.

KTM didn't cut any corners when they produced the Duke 125 and 200, and to continue that commitment while increasing performance, simply upgrade to a K&N KT-1211 reusable air filter. Designed to fit directly into the existing air box, this high flow air filter is engineered to increase horsepower and acceleration, while providing exceptional filtration and engine protection.

The KT-1211 is washable, reusable, and easy to clean with the uncomplicated cleaning instructions in a K&N Recharger Service Kit. Depending on your riding circumstances, this performance air filter can run up to 50,000 miles before cleaning is required. With K&N's world famous Million Mile Limited Warranty, this will be the last air filter you'll ever purchase for your KTM Duke.

K&N performance air filtre KT-1211 fits the following KTM 125/200 Duke models:
- 2013 KTM 200 Duke
- 2013 KTM 125 Duke
- 2012 KTM 200 Duke

K&N's Enderle Birdcatcher Fuel Injection Racing Air Filter 100-8521 is Washable and Reusable
 
Continuing the tradition of developing products for all forms of motorsports, K&N has designed a high-performance air filter for what remains one of the most widely used forms of racing fuel injection today, the Enderle Birdcatcher.

Used in numerous forms of off-road performance applications, the Birdcatcher is the middle of the Enderle injector family of three. The Birdcatcher injector hat is the perfect size for engines with cubic inches greater than 425 and it can be mounted on both tunnel rams and blowers. These fuel injection set-ups are commonly found on everything from weekend warriors at drag strips all across the country to Monster Trucks, drag boats and a favorite among those competing in the National Tractor Pullers Association.

In addition to the K&N race filters available for the smaller Bugcatcher and the larger Buzzardcatcher, users of this popular Birdcatcher can now have the added protection of a K&N race filter. K&N's 100-8521 is quite simple to install and it is designed to fit and seal onto the opening of an unmodified Enderle Birdcatcher fuel injection hat. By adding the K&N 100-8521, racers can minimize replacement costs by protecting their high-dollar engine investments from dirt and debris, all while maintaining excellent air-flow needed for power.

Air filter 100-8521 is constructed with K&N's unique oiled cotton gauze filter medium that is washable and reusable and can be easily be cleaned and recharged just by grabbing a K&N Recharger Kit and following the simple instructions. The amount of time between cleaning your 100-8521 will vary and depend heavily on the type of racing you do with your Enderle Birdcatcher set-up and the conditions.

K&N air filter part number 33-3003 for Honda Accord IX models
 
Since its introduction in 1976 the Honda Accord has been one of the most prolific award winners on the road. In part due to the consistent accolades, the Accord is also one of the most successful cars produced by any car maker in the world. It’s every bit as popular on the streets of southern California as it is on the roads of Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, where the car is assembled locally.

The 2.0 liter Honda Accord is available in Malaysia and a few select Asian nations. It has become a focus of attention for many international Accord forums. Since the 2.0 liter is street tuned for lower torque, most feel it outperforms the more prevalent 2.4 liter version. K&N’s high performance air filter 33-3003 drops directly into the factory air box and it was designed to increase horsepower and torque in 2.0 liter models by merely using it instead of the OEM filter.

The 33-3003 air filter is washable, reusable and easy to clean. Servicing is simple with a K&N Recharger Kit. Depending on your driving environment, this air filter can go up to 50,000 miles before cleaning is necessary.

25.2.2013 - K&N Replacement Air Filter for 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0L Offers Lifetime Performance

Highslide JS
K&N 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe 2.0L Air Filter
 
Hyundai first produced the Genesis Coupe during the 2010 model year. The coupe's key billing was its affordability as a rear-wheel-drive performance coupe. A rear-wheel-drive chassis was a relative rarity among reasonably priced cars on the whole and virtually unheard of from a Korean manufacturer. Make no mistake about it though, the Genesis Coupe should not be confused with Hyundai's Genesis sedan, as they are two entirely different vehicles.

The redesigned two-liter 2013 Hyundai Genesis has a retuned suspension, twin-scroll turbocharger and a larger, more efficient intercooler, that helps boost output and increase fuel efficiency. When the coupe was introduced in 2010, it delivered a measly 210 horsepower. The power plant that comes with 2013 Genesis coupe models, adds an extra 64 ponies, dialing up the wick to a wicked 274 horsepower. Drivers indicate a noticeable jump in stoplight-to-stoplight gusto, as there's a new rush of acceleration that wasn't present in the old engine. The old coupe made zero to 60 runs in 6.8 seconds, the 2013 Coupe smokes that by over a second at 5.7 seconds.

Owners of the 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe with the 2.0 liter engine can experience added performance by simply upgrading to a K&N 33-2482 high flow air filter. K&N's performance air filter delivers exceptional engine protection and it was designed to increase horsepower and acceleration.

Installation of K&N's Hyundai Genesis Coupe replacement air filter is as easy as removing the existing air filter from the OE airbox and dropping the 33-2482 performance filter in its place.

K&N air filter 33-2482 is washable and reusable, which means that you will never have to buy another air filter for the life of your coupe. Servicing your air filter is made simple with K&N's air filter Recharger® Kit. The kit contains air filter cleaner, which dissolves dirt so it can be easily washed away, and filter oil, which restores your filter so it performs like new. Depending on your individual driving conditions, K&N's Hyundai Genesis Coupe replacement air filter 33-2482 can perform up to 50,000 miles before cleaning is necessary depending on driving conditions.

Your 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe deserves the performance and protection of K&N and the reassurance that comes with the Million Mile Limited Warranty provided with this air filter.

K&N 33-2482 fits all 2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe models with a 2.0 liter engine.

Kia and Hyundai have done it again. The 2011, 2012 and 2013 Optima and Sonata have created such a buzz in the car world that they are flying off the shelves. Sharing the same power-plant, the Kia and Optima boast a powerful 2.0 liter motor force fed by a twin scroll turbocharger cranking out an impressive 274 horsepower. This is Subaru WRX territory. Both 2013 models were named by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) as top safety picks for the 2012 year. The rise to global recognition results in more aftermarket options for the Sonata and Optima. This is where K&N comes into the picture. A globally recognized company as well, K&N wasn't satisfied with a measly 274 horsepower from these mid-sized sports sedans.

In comes the 69-5309TS air intake system for 2011, 2012 and 2013 Kia Optima and Hyundai Sonata models with the 2.0 liter turbo charged motor. Replacing the restrictive stock air intake system with this free flowing, mandrel bent, aluminum intake system, Optima and Sonata owners can see an estimated 7.6 horsepower increase to the wheels at 4,861 RPM. More horsepower and more torque gives the discerning owner more to play with on the highway. Air intake 69-5309TS provides fittings for the existing blow off valve, EVAP and vent hoses. It comes with a heat shield to block hot engine air and pull in cooler outside air. Owners of Kia Optima and Hyundai Sonata models below are guaranteed to increase horsepower by installing this performance air intake system.

K&N air intake 69-5309TS comes with a high flowing air filter (RF-1048) that protects your motor from harmful dust and contaminants. Performance air filter RF-1048 is washable, reusable and it can perform up to 100,000 miles between cleaning, depending on driving conditions.

K&N Replacement Air Filter for Mazda Mazdaspeed3 SkyActiv, 6 and CX-5
 
Reporting on the 2013 Mazda3 SkyActiv 2.0 Consumer Reports wrote "The pleasant, practical, fun-to-drive Mazda3 is one of the better small cars available. Its 2.0-liter SkyActiv engine delivers smooth and ample performance..."

It's a concise excerpt that embodies the automakers' succinct slogan, being that very few other sub-$25,000 cars provide near as much Zoom Zoom for the buck as the Mazda3. 2012 was the first year that Mazda offered up the fuel-sipping, high-compression SkyActiv engine. The 2.0-litre mill produces 155 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque, and sends power to the front wheels via a choice of two SkyActiv transmissions developed exclusively for the car, a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic. There's also an optional 2.5-liter DOHC 16-valve power-plant that's a bit punchier and produces 167 ponies.

Both the 2.0 and 2.5 liter Mazda mills are available in several vehicle venues, and both can claim performance improvements with the effortless act of a K&N high flow air filter upgrade. By simply upgrading the OE air filter with a K&N 33-2480 reusable air filter, you can instantly improve the overall performance of both engines, while also ensuring excellent air filtration and engine protection.

Engineered to enhance both horsepower and torque, and designed to drop into your existing factory air box, the K&N 33-2480 reusable air filter will be the last air filter you'll ever need to buy for your Mazda - you have K&N's famous Million Mile Limited Warranty to support that claim. It takes less than five minutes to release the two securing clips on the Mazda air-box, remove the factory installed air filter, and replace it with the new K&N air filter upgrade. That's all it takes to boost performance and your engine's defense against grime and restriction with K&N.

Depending on your driving conditions, servicing intervals can go up to 50,000 miles before cleaning is necessary, and cleaning the filter is as simple as following the four easy steps on a K&N Recharger Kit (part no. 99-5000).

The K&N 33-2480 performance air filter fits the following vehicle:
2014 Mazda CX-5 2.5L

After reading this headline a reasonable question might be - what the heck is a Skoda Octavia and a Seat Leon. Allow us to broaden your automotive I.Q.; both are variants of the Volkswagen Group A platform which share many components with Volkswagen's Golf and Jetta, and Audi's TT and A3 models. The Skoda Octavia is the Czech Republic's interpretation of the globally popular VW platform and the Seat Leon hails from Spain. Both models, along with select models of the Audi S3, A3 and VW Golf models share another common thread, they all receive perceptible performance gains by simply upgrading to a K&N 33-3005 high-performance and reusable air filter.

V-dub's boss Martin Winterkorn has been pushing hard to reach his goal of making VW the world's No. 1 car brand by 2018. To get that done, Winterkorn brought out the next generation Golf to market a year or two earlier than originally planned.

The Golf VII 2.0L diesel is reported to pump out a 148 horsepower, and now by merely upgrading the OE air filter with a K&N 33-3005 air filter, you will not only enhance the overall performance of all the vehicles listed, but you will assure excellent air filtration and engine protection.

Scion FR-S with K&N Air Intake Installed
 
2013 Scion FR-S, Subaru BRZ and Toyota GT86 models with 2.0 liter engines are stand out in a crowd and make people stop and take a look. All three of these vehicles are a true magnet for the tuners out there as a great performance starting base. The FR-S, BRZ and GT86 come with a 2.0 liter boxer engine that puts out an estimated 200 horsepower at 7400 RPM. Combining the sleek look, great performance and tuner appeal, all being offered by three different automotive manufactures, you end up with one killer combination with a lot of options.

To help add even more performance and customization, K&N offers the 69-8619TS air intake system. The K&N 69-8619TS air intake system added an estimated gain of 6.6 horsepower at 6670 RPM and 5.5 feet pound of torque at 5670 RPM to a 2013 Scion FR-S with 2.0 liter engine. This air intake is simple to install and it is a great way to add simple power with great under the hood looks.

This air intake is covered by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty, and you end up with one performance upgrade that you cannot resist. The 69-8619TS air intake system comes with all of the necessary components for an easy installation. Just follow the simple step by step installation instructions, and it should take no more than 90 minutes to bolt in. The 69-8619TS air intake system's main components include K&N's high performance air filter, a vehicle specific heat shield and mandrel bent aluminum air intake tube. The K&N air filter is designed to go up to 100,000 miles, depending on driving conditions, before it needs to be serviced using K&N's 99-5000 air filter cleaner kit.

The heat shield was enginered for this engine bay setup and will bolt directly in place of the stock air filter housing. The purpose of the heat shield is to help keep the warm under hood temperatures from reaching the filter, keeping the air that goes into the engine nice and cold. The air intake tube that comes with this air intake system has a welded on, mass air sensor specific, adapter and also includes a threaded fitting for the crank case vent hose. The tube was engineered to work with the stock sensor and computer setup and programing, so no reprograming of the vehicle's computer is needed.

K&N Replacement Air Filter for Volkswagen Golf, Jetta, Polo, Skoda Octavia and Seat Leon
 
Volkswagen first introduced this Polo alternative at the 2012 Geneva Auto Show as a way to bridge the gap between the 105-hp Polo 1.2 FSI and the 180-hp Polo GTI. This new 140-hp mill is notable because it not just zippy, accelerating from 0-to-60 in a respectable 7.8 seconds, but it also respects fuel economy, reaching 50 mpg combined on the European test cycle.

The 1.4-liter turbocharged engine achieves these impressive figures because it features cylinder deactivation or ACT as Volkswagen calls it. Translated that means the engine is able to deactivate half of its four-cylinders under light throttle loads. Interestingly there's no appreciable change in vibration because when the engine switches from four to two-cylinders, all four cylinders keep moving, but only two are fed fuel.

Another common thread connecting these Volkswagen platform cars is that each can gain a performance boost after simply upgrading to a K&N 33-3004 high flow air filter. Engineered to increase both horsepower and torque and designed to simply drop into the existing factory air box, it only takes minutes to upgrade your existing filter with K&N's 33-3004 and to experience the added performance benefits for yourself.

This will be the last air filter you'll ever need to buy for your vehicle - you have K&N's renowned Million Mile Limited Warranty backing that claim. Depending on your driving environment, servicing intervals can go up to 50,000 miles before maintenance is necessary, and cleaning the filter is as effortless as following the four easy steps on a K&N Recharger Kit (part no. 99-5050).

K&N Replacement Air Filter Front for Mazda3 and Mazda5
 
One of the key reasons why people choose Mazda is because of their road civility. They offer first-rate highway acceleration and they hold the corners well and with very little sway. The ride is tranquil and transmits confidence over any road condition. Beginning in 2011 they added yet another good motive to buy Mazda - SkyActiv.

Currently, 95% of the world uses gasoline or diesel combustion engines, and by 2020, 90% still will. This is why Mazda developed SkyActiv, a series of technologies designed to increase both fuel efficiency, and engine output. The SkyActiv-G 2.0 engine was first available in North America on the 2012 Mazda3, and it hit the market internationally a year before in both the Mazda3 and Mazda5 models. The engine is an engineering marvel that produces more low/mid-range torque and fewer emissions while consuming less fuel.

The revolutionary new engine then required the ultimate transmission to get that precious energy to the wheels. Mazda studied every modern transmission made and employed the best features of each to come up with the SkyActiv -Drive six-speed automatic transmission. It shifts smoothly for steady acceleration and quickly for the connected feel of a manual transmission but with far greater efficiency.

And now by merely upgrading the existing air filter on the Mazda 2.0-liter engine (SkyActiv and standard) with a K&N 33-2999 high-flow, air filter, you can improve performance even further. The 33-2999 high performance air filter is designed to simply drop into existing factory air box, without any modifications required. By installing this well made high flow air filter, you can increase both horsepower and torque, while still protecting the engine with excellent filtration.

The K&N 33-2999 reusable air filter will be the only air filter you'll ever need to purchase for your Mazda - K&N supports that promise with their renowned Million Mile Limited Warranty. Depending on your driving environment, servicing intervals can go up to 50,000 miles before maintenance is necessary, and cleaning the filter is as easy as following the four simple steps on a K&N Recharger Kit (part no. 99-5050).

BMW M5 & M6 K&N Air Filter Top
 
Don't let the chiseled good looks of the luxury-car-sized M6 behemoth fool you, this thing is out to kick butt, and it doesn't care what your name is. BMW first used the M6 badge in 1987, and it has continued to evolve into a dominantly powerful and luxurious sports car. Did we mention powerful?

The highest-performance version of BMW's big two-door has replaced its V10 engine in favor of a new 4.4-liter V8 equipped with M TwinPower Turbo Technology. Despite surrendering two cylinders, the new V8 develops a total of 560 horsepower and a peak torque of 500 lb-ft. The V8 is teamed up with BMW's newly developed 7-speed double-clutch transmission which is designed to handle the high torque and high revving nature of the engine. The MB5 uses the same essential powertrain. BMW puts the 0-60 time at a brisk 4.1 seconds.

These impressively fast and stylish vehicles deserve respect, by simply replacing the existing air filters with a K&N 33-2488 air filter set, you will immediately show your BMW how much you care. K&N's high performance, high-flow air filters can increase both horsepower and torque, while at the same time providing outstanding engine protection. And, the two K&N air filters that come as a set are designed to fit into the existing factory air boxes without any modifications.

K&N's specially pleated, high-flow filter design creates a large surface area, allowing the K&N air filters in part 33-2488 to continue to perform perfectly for extended maintenance intervals. Depending on your driving conditions, servicing intervals can reach up to 50,000 miles. When filter maintenance is called for, cleaning the air filter is as trouble-free as following the four easy steps on a K&N Recharger Kit.

K&N 33-2488 high performance, reusable air filters, will be the only air filters that you'll need to purchase for your BMW M5 or M6 V8 ever, as supported by K&N's celebrated Million Mile Limited Warranty.

K&N 69-1020TS Air Intake under the hood of Honda Civic
 
The Honda Civic has become an icon of a car because of its affordability, reliability and for how many aftermarket options are available. The popularity of the Honda Civic has continued with the redesigned 2012 and 2013 Civic 1.8 liter models. These Honda Civic models are a perfect candidate for a K&N low restriction power gaining air intake system.

To help increase performance, horsepower and to add a little style to these Civic models, K&N has come out with the 69-1020TS air intake system. This performance air intake system installs in place of the stock air intake and air filter box without having to lift or modify the vehicle. Included are all of the necessary components to bolt on the estimated gain of 3.1 horsepower at 5424 RPM and 2.1 feet-lbs of torque at 4836 RPM. Installation is easy when you follow the detailed installation instructions. On average it should take less than 90 minutes to install using a few simple tools.

The 69-1020TS air intake system comes with a aluminum mandrel bent air intake tube, heat shield, K&N performance air filter and all of the nuts, hardware and hose clamps needed for installation. The air intake tube's silver powder-coated finish is designed to be very durable, look great and be easy to clean if it gets dirty. The air intake tube has a welded on mass air sensor adapter as well. Between the mass air sensor adapter and the included mass air sensor venturi, the air intake will work in sync with the stock sensor and computer. The heat shield comes in a black powder-coated finish for looks and durability. It is designed to help block the hot under hood air from getting to the air filter.

The included K&N RU-4600 performance air filter is designed to help improve air flow while providing excellent air filtration. The performance air filter has been engineered to be washable and reusable, so it will never need to be replaced. This air filter also has a large surface area, meaning that you can go up to 100,000 miles between cleaning, depending on driving conditions. In the case of more dusty driving conditions, K&N offers the 22-8036PK PreCharger air filter wrap. The PreCharger can help stop the larger particles from reaching the air filter, helping to extend the service interval.

The air filter clamps securely to the venturi air filter adapter, which attaches to the air intake tube and mounting bracket. The venturi adapter allows for an air filter with a larger six inch opening and helps to direct and improve air flow into the air intake tube. To help secure the entire air intake setup, the heat shield is mounted in place on the fender well, and the tube, air filter adapter and air filter are connected to the heat shield with a large mounting bracket. This setup is designed to help make sure the air intake stays in place.

Between the high quality components, the vehicle specific design and engineering, and that K&N backs the 69-1020TS air intake with their Million Mile Limited Warranty, this setup is going to last for the life of your vehicle, if not longer.

The K&N 69-1020TS air intake system fill fit the following vehicles:
