K&N brand "lifetime" reuseable air filter custom
made to fit the stock Jensen Healey air cleaner
(the original paper unit is NLA).
Conventional paper elements are very resistant
to air flow because the filter material or
medium is very dense. The greater the restriction
the greater the power loss.
K&N's oil-impregnated, cotton-gauze element is
far superior. The process is expensive but well
worth the effort. To further make the point,
consider that square inch per square inch, our
filter will flow an average of 50 percent more
air compared to the average paper filter without
sacrificing filtration efficiency.
A second and equally important attribute of a
K&N filter is its ability to be cleaned. Simply
wash, dry and re-oil the element at regularly
scheduled intervals and it will continue
providing your engine with clean air for the
lifetime of your car. A K&N Filtercharger can
be washed and cleaned up to 25 times. We recommend
inspecting the filter every 30,000 miles or
12 months. If cleaning isn't warranted, re-oil
the element to insure optimum filtration
efficiency is maintained. Apply a small amount
of oil to the clean side of the element.
Note: use only a special purified K&N cleaning
oil kit (see below) for this purpose. Regular motor
oil will ruin the filter element.
