More horses at lesser cost
For 36 years now, innovating the line of reusable cotton gauze filter technology for automobiles has been the bread and butter for K&N Engineering. And what bread and butter it is that the steady growth has been established to make K&N a global company. From its roots of being a family undertaking, the filter company grew into immense proportions, having offices already in the United Kingdom and Netherlands. A leader in its field, K&N already has an extensive line of factory and replacement drop-in filters, Fuel Injection Performance Kits and its own line of Golden oil filters.
For starters, the automobile engine is essentially a giant air pump, combusting a mixture of fuel and air with a carefully timed spark. The more air the engine has available, the more horsepower it can make. The F150 K&N Intake lets the engine breathe cleaner air for more torque and tremendous power. It hinders dust particles from entering the engine's combustion chambers. The cabin air filters, meanwhile, purify the air that enters the truck's ventilation system.
The K&N air filter utilizes a special filter media made of cotton gauze and oiled with K&N's special filter oil. This combination of gauze media and filter oil serves as a tough wall so that dirt won't be able to get past. It doesn't get steadily choke like what a standard, stock air filter does. Instead, the dirt captured by K&N air filter even acts to filter out more dirt. This gives the engine a steady diet of clean air for more horsepower. This condition also shows how improved the throttle response of an engine is.
Throttle response is measured by the amount of delay or hesitation that the vehicle exhibits between when the gas pedal is pressed down and when the engine responds by delivering power. Improvements in throttle response give s more "pep" in the car's acceleration.
As the K&N air filter gets dirty, it can readily be washed up and re-oiled via the K&N recharge kit. It is a Lifetime filter, which means there is no replacement needed. It also means that it even draws a bigger bang for the buck as there is no more shelling out of additional money for replacement, low-performing air filters.
K&N air filters also add on fuel saving for an engine. As the engine is getting the maximum amount of clean air through the K&N filter, it becomes more efficient. This shows a drastic improvement in fuel economy as the engine doesn't have to gasp for more air caused by an inefficient air filter. Other plus factors for better fuel mileage is by making sure that the tires are properly inflated and removing unused accessory racks and heavy items whenever a vehicle is not in use.
As the engine breathes easier, K&N air filters contributes for cleaner air. Its High-Flow technology reduces vehicle emissions related to pollution. The cotton composition is renewable, unlike the paper-made ones from trees that would surely take many years to grow to maturity.
These are just but a some of the breath-taking features of K&N air filters. Molded with many years of industry expertise, F150 K&N Intake will continue to heave cleaner air for optimum engine performance.
