 Chapter 1 - What Do I Have Under My Hood and Why Should I Care? | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 2:55

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 2 - An Air Filter That Mattered | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3:13

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 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:18

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 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 6:04

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 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 7:08

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 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:59

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 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:27

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 | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4:37

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.

 Chapter 9 - The Worlds First Million Mile Warranty | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:04

K&N replacement air filters and air intake systems are built to last for the life of your vehicle and are backed up by the world's first million mile limited warranty.

 Chapter 10 - Consumer Protection Pledge | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:46

We want to make sure that when you buy a K&N Air Filter or Intake System, you can be confident your vehicle's warranty will not be impacted. We also want you to feel confident that even if you experience a unreasonable dealership, we will step-in and resolve the issue, so you won't have to.

 Chapter 11 - Vehicle Warranties | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:59

K&N air filters will not void a vehicles manufacturer's warranty. They are high quality replacement parts and automotive or motorcycle dealerships cannot void a consumers warranty solely based on the existence of an aftermarket product.

 Chapter 12 - Finding the Right Part For Your Vehicle | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:00

K&N has a great application lookup tool available at our Web Site Data is also available to dealers in various formats.

 Chapter 13 - How K&N Air Filters Can Increase Horsepower | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 3:24

All engines are developed to produce a certain amount of horsepower based on their physical characteristics. The most important features of an engine that effect power are the number of cylinders, the cubic displacement, valve layout and the delivery of air and fuel.

 Chapter 14 - Air Filter Product Lines | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 5:19

With millions of satisfied customers, for over 35 years, the Original K&N High-Flow Air Filter is still the #1 selling premium air filter in America. Once an "insider" product known only to racing and performance enthusiasts, today our High-Flow Air Filter is a mainstream product with clear benefits over disposable air filters

 Chapter 15 - K&N Air Intake Kits - The Ultimate in Horsepower | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 4:59
