These podcasts were very helpful in describing how their air filters work and de-bunking the myth about their filter oils and MAF sensor. I support truly American companies like K&N!

Useful info

This podcast, while having a definite marketing spin, covers a lot of the basics of the air filter technology, and uncovers alot of the mysteries of how K&N filters work so much better than stock filters. I stumbled across this podcast by accident actually, and am glad I did. I've used K&N filters in all my vehicles for the last 8 years, and have no intention of owning a vehicle without one. Anyway, This makes a good listen on a long trip.

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

Podcast cover

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

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.

While other air filter companies sold disposable filters, asking consumers to waste money through the endless cycle of buy, throw away and re-buy.

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.

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.
