K&N is a California-based manufacturer of replacement and performance automotive parts that makes parts right here in the UK. They specialize in parts and components for all makes and models of car: from performance kits for European and Asian hot hatchbacks to high end racing components for American, Asian, and European sports cars and race cars competing at both national and global levels.
Founded in 1969 as part of a motorcycle dealership and racing shop, K&N Engineering has since expanded into a global parts provider that caters to the needs and desires of both the commuter and the tuning/performance fanatic. Their air filters are truly world class, and regardless of which filter you opt to install in your vehicle, you can rest easy in the knowledge that K&N provides you with the best value for your hard earned money.
Improving airflow isn't all that difficult: the real magic is in creating more airflow without compromising the quality of the air flowing through your engine. The filters and filter media at K&N have all been independently assessed and evaluated by the Society of Automotive Engineers for both maximum airflow and maximum engine protection.
Like many air filters, K&N filters are made of 4-6 layers of cotton gauze suspended between epoxy-coated aluminum wire screens. The K&N difference is their air filters are treated with a specially formulated oil engineered to increase the tackiness of the cotton in the filter media and ensure more efficient capture of particulates as they pass through the filter into the intake manifold.
Hand-made and assembled in the UK, these air filters are built to last. They are even washable and reusable with warm water and K&N air filter oil. All air filters have also been stress tested with 100 washings and re-oilings without any loss in performance. Best of all, you don't need to clean your K&N Air Filter until it has 50,000 miles on it. Not only do K&N Air Filters provide superior performance, but they also save you money over the lifetime of your vehicle. K&N Air Filters are clearly the superior choice for performance and longevity when it comes to automotive air filters.
