Unlike the usual replacement brand filters that you can get in a discount store, performance air filters can be washed and reused. This is a big deal for many reasons. Designed to increase horsepower and acceleration, they can go 50,000 miles before they need to be cleaned, (just like your work boots.) What's more, performance filters come with warranties up to ten years/one million miles, and will not void out your vehicle's warranty. Finally, high performance air filters are good for the environment: Because they are reusable and last so long, most performance filters will outlast your car and will never end up in a landfill. Where can you get yourself one of these miracles of modern automotive engineering? Look for brand names like Accel, AFE, Airaird, Green Air Filter, K&N Filters, True Flow, and Volant. They offer top of the line performance filters.
