K&N invented the world’s first air filter guaranteed for one million miles. That same warranty applies to their Fuel Injection Performance Systems. Their products are well engineered, built with the finest materials and they stand behind them 100%.
K&N built their first kit in 1992 and haven’t looked back since. They currently manufacture over 500 different part numbers and their team of engineers is designing, building and testing new systems constantly.
They feel a high quality performance intake system is one of the best dollars to horsepower investments you can make and once again K&N is the clearly defined leader.
Their systems are built for horsepower. In fact on the 2003 Ford Mustang SVT® they get a whopping 30 horsepower. If they can’t increase a car or truck’s horsepower, they won’t build a system for it. It’s that simple. They establish a stock baseline horsepower with their in-house dynamometers and then design an air intake to get the largest horsepower gain attainable without causing a “Check Engine Light” to come on. Their horsepower numbers are not based on the single biggest gain from one particular vehicle but are an average of runs and vehicles. Many times an identical vehicle will perform differently so they want to ensure repeatable numbers you can count on.
How do they increase horsepower so consistently? It all starts with The World’s Best Air Filter. Even a K&N replacement air filter is limited by the size of the original air box but once they remove the air box, there’s plenty of room to work with. Then they apply High-Flow Technology to a large conical open element air filter, providing more surface area for huge increases in airflow that turn into horsepower you can feel. The oversize air filter also captures and holds more dirt. This increases the service life before a cleaning is required (up to 100,000 miles for air intakes depending on driving conditions).
Sound complicated? That’s the great part, K&N’s air intake systems are easy to install. A typical installation can be done with a screwdriver, pliers and a ratchet-set in 90 minutes or less! They specifically engineer their kits to use existing factory holes and mounting points, making installation simple. The vast majority of their cold air intakes do NOT require any cutting or drilling.
Many K&N Intake Systems are street legal in all 50 states and include a California Air Resource Board (CARB) Executive Order (EO) number that ensures the kit has been tested to comply with emissions standards. EO numbers apply to the kit as well as the year, make and model it is being installed on. Systems with no EO number are street legal in most states but may not be used on emissions controlled vehicles in the state of California or other states adopting California emission standards.

Nothing dresses up your vehicle better than Chrome Trim. Even if you buy the bottom of the line, plain Jane car, truck or SUV, just add a few pieces of chrome trim, and you’ll transform your boring ride into a show piece!
Putco makes a full line of chrome accessories for almost any make or model of vehicle on the road today. You can “bling up” your minivan as easily as your Camaro. EVERY car looks good with a little chrome trim.
Putco’s chrome trim is made of Automotive Grade ABS chrome. Most ABS chrome is “chromed” plastic. You may think “chromed plastic…how cheap”. But this is the same type of chrome used by most major automotive companies. Not only does it look good and wear well, it’s super easy to install. And no one will know it’s chromed plastic (except you!).
Each piece of Putco Chrome Trim comes with installation instructions, as well as an alcohol pad. You simply wipe down the area where you’re going to install the trim with the alcohol pad until it’s clean, and allow it to dry thoroughly. Then line up the chrome trim to make sure you know exactly how it’s supposed to fit. This step is VERY important, because once you attach the chrome, it’s not coming off. That’s because Putco uses 3M Brand tape, which is super adhesive, so make sure you line up the chrome properly before installing.
After you’re certain where to properly attach the chrome trim, simply remove the 3M tape from the back of your trim, align, then press into place. It’s that simple! You’ve instantly increased the value and appearance of your vehicle!
You can accessorize the exterior and interior of your vehicle with Putco’s extensive line of chrome accessories. It also makes a great gift for anybody on your gift-giving list. It’s affordable, easy to install, and makes your ride look awesome. What a great gift for any car lover!

Snow! You blow off your sidewalk and driveway, but the snow keeps falling and you have to start the whole process over again. Your snow blower can’t keep up, and there’s still a lot of winter left. Give yourself a break, and get the ProVantage ATV Snow Plow System by Warn.
Designed to work with most ATV’s and Side x Side’s, the ProVantage Plow System by Warn will make quick work of your biggest plowing job. The simple 4-step process is easy to purchase and assemble on your ATV.
The first step is to choose your plow mounting kit. Warn offers a front plow mounting kit or a center plow mounting kit. The front plow mounting kit offers rapid connection, with an easy-on and easy-off design thanks to a self-locating pin design. As stated, the plow mount is located on the front of the vehicle, so there is no need to crawl under your ATV to install the mount. There is also no need to remove the mount during non-plowing season. With the center plow mount, the mounting plate remains attached to the ATV and becomes a structural components that adds strength and rigidity to the ATV during plowing. It is designed for high ground clearance and quick installation or removal.
The next step is to select your plow base. The Warn plow base assembly features an extra wide design for increased stability and durability, a forward trip system, and an interlocked rotating base plate for great strength, outstanding durability, and excellent impact resistance. The optional Power Pivot allows your plow blade to rotate up to 25 degrees at the push of a button, and without having to get up from your seat.
The next step is to choose your plow blade. Warn offers a 54” or 60” tapered plow blade, or 50”, 54” or 60” straight plow blade. The tapered plow blade is designed with an aggressive curved profile to move snow or dirt up and away from the ground. It’s made from 11 gauge steel with extra heavy ribbing for added strength. The straight plow blade is made from 12 gauge steel with heavy duty ribbing and a center cross member for added rigidity. The 54” and 60” plow blades also have top lips with pre-drilled holes for accessory attachment.
Warn also has a new Bucket Coversion Kit which turns your straight plow blade into a bucket loader. This allows you to scoop up the snow and dump it into an out-of-the way area.
The last step is to choose your blade raising mechanism. Warn has two options here. You can use your existing Warn Winch (XT15, 25 or 30 is recommended), or if you don’t have a winch, choose the ProVantage Plow Lift. The ProVantage Plow Lift effortlessly lifts your ATV plow without needing to use your winch. It has optimized lift speed for grading control, and a screw drive system with plenty of lifting power with low amp draw. It includes all hardware, wiring, and an all-weather handlebar mounted switch. It has a compact design that will work with your Warn ATV plow system, whether it is old or new. It has a high enough lift to go over curbs and piles of snow.
Warn’s ProVantage Plow System also works great as an agriculture plow, quickly moving gravel, mulch, dirt or sand. All plow blades are powder-coated to prevent the material from sticking to the blade.
Plow smarter with WARN!
