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

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

Chapter 2 - An Air Filter That Mattered

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.

Chapter 3 - A Reusable Idea in a Disposable Industry

While other air filter companies sold disposable filters, asking consumers to waste money through the endless cycle of buy, throw away and re-buy. K&N took the road less traveled by selling consumers a lifetime air filter that never needed to be replaced and that was designed to improve performance.

Chapter 4 - If You Want It Done Right, Do It Yourself

What makes a K&N the best air filter in the world and what about these copycat filters that appear similar to a K&N? Our reputation has been built gradually based on the quality of millions of air filters we have sold over the years and the positive experience consumers have with our air filters after they install them in a vehicle. We take our filters very seriously and in the end the quality comes from the simple fact that we care.

Chapter 5 - The Worlds Best Air Filter Comes in RED and from California

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

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

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 8 - Cleaning Your K&N Air Filter

All K&N Air Filters are washable and reusable. Your normal driving environment will determine when you should clean your air filter. If you drive in a non-dusty wet environment with lots of trees and vegetation, we recommend you inspect your filter every 50,000 miles. If you live in dry or desert conditions, we recommend you inspect your filter every 30,000 miles.
