K&N Fuel Injection Performance Systems

February 27, 2011 on 9:55 am | In Air Intake | No Comments

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.
