• Advantages of using a High Flow Air Filter

    When it’s time to change the air filter in your vehicle, you might want to considera  high flow air filter rather than a conventional disposable air filter. While high flow filters usually costs more than cheaper, paper-based filters, the benefits that they offer are significant and may help you save money in the long run.

    More Horsepower and Performance

    High flow air filters allow more air to easily pass into your car’s engine and produce much better combustion, which translates into more horsepower and better performance for your vehicle. Many high flow air filters typically increase your vehicle’s horsepower by about 5 to 10 horsepower; however, some very high performance high flow air filters may add as much as 25 horsepower to your car engine’s power output.

    Improved Gas Mileage

    Good air intake not only produces more power for your vehicle, it allows your vehicle’s engine not to work as hard when accelerating and maintaining acceptable driving speeds. Better combustion means more efficiency in your engine, and a more efficient engine uses less gasoline. Although the fuel efficiency that your vehicle delivers is based on many factors, improved airflow typically can improve the gas mileage in many vehicles by about 10% to 15%.

    Cleanable and Reusable

    Many high flow air filters can be cleaned and used over and over again. So, while the purchase price of high flow air filters may be somewhat higher than disposable air filters, the fact that you can clean and reuse them means that you won’t have to continue buying lesser-quality paper air filters. In many cases, a high quality air filter can pay for itself in only 2 or 3 years
