Love my new K&N 63 Series

I just installed my new K&N 63 Series air intake. What a difference! It really pulls much better off the line. The sound is a nice bonus too. This was also a nice quick little project to show my girlfriend's 13 y/o son something about cars. We are also half way through installing a set of Steelcraft step bars. We got the driver's side done. Next weekend we'll finish the other one and start on the bull bar.

Re: Love my new K&N 63 Series

Let us know how it feels in about two weeks, after the ECU makes adjustments. Many here report that their but dyno indicats better performance, but that is often an illusion that wears out fast. It may make a nice sound, however.... sure sounds more powerful

sad but true, it somewhat did that to my borla cat-back too as confirmed by borla.

Re: Love my new K&N 63 Series

I installed my AFE intake about two weeks ago and I can tell you that taking off is so much better now, before it used to be a snail.

I think is the best bang for the buck upgrade for the hemi. Now it sounds like a V8.

Misconception, not at all true.

No it's actually a fact, the misconception is that K&N fiters can achieve a higher air flow thru their filters while still maintaining the ability to filter fine dirt particles at the same time.

If you do some research on the topic you can find the truth. K&N's media marketing glosses over over this simple truth!

You can do a simple test with your own vehicle to prove this point. Run 5000 miles with the OEM paper filter, any brand of quality motor oil, and oil filter. Save an oil sample after this 5K mile run. Replace your OEM paper filter with an oiled K&N filter. Run the same 5K miles with the same brand oil and filter and save an oil sample from this run. Now send both samples off to oil analysis and report back what the lab tells you. Blackstone labs will do this testing relatively cheap. What do you think you'll find??

I can tell you from experience the oil sample from the oiled K&N filter will look visably darker than the OEM paper air filter sample because of all the fine dirt particles suspended in your oil that the K&N filter did not filter out!
Oil analysis will show more silica and fine particles suspended in the K&N sample than that of the OEM paper filter.

Thats the plain truth!

If you want to look further into it, enjoy;

Re: Love my new K&N 63 Series

I am yet to see a single case of a damaged motor because of a K&N filter, enjoy your new setup. Had it on a Commander for 3 years and loved it.

How many motors have you taken apart after running a K&N oiled cotten gauze filter for it's lifetime? Do you know what engine damage looks like?

What I said was;

And this is a proven fact .... a K&N oiled cotton gauze air filter or any other manufacturers oiled cotton gauze air filter, will flow more air than most paper filters and allow more dirt into an engine while doing it!

Read it, learn it, live it!

Love it all you want, if you don't mind all that extra dirt in your engine, neither do I. Even if it sounds Kewl!

It's your Jeep.
