K&N Engineering is always first on the list for car magazines when it comes to vehicle testing. John Stewart from PickupTrucks.com brought his assignment to K&N headquarters in Riverside, CA and as a result, K&N was able to get a first hand look at the new 2009 Chevy Colorado 5.3 Liter V8.
How to clean your K&N drop-in filter using the K&N recharger cleaning kit
Just a demonstration on how to clean your K&N air filter using the
recharger kit on my 2007 Ford F-150, 5.4L Triton V8. It works the same for
all K&N filters, whether they're oval or square.
Also as an FYI, K&N filters regardless if new or not, will have tiny pin
holes all through the filter. When you oil it, make sure you spray oil onto
those holes to cover them up.
Extreme Traction-Control Test
As part of the 2008 PickupTrucks.com Half-Ton Shootout, PickupTrucks.com
put six half-ton pickups from Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Nissan and
Toyota through an extreme traction-control test that simulated icy road
conditions to find out which trucks had the best traction control. For more
