DOES INCREASED AIRFLOW MEAN THAT MORE DIRT WILL GET THROUGH THE FILTER?
No. Most disposable filters are "barrier filters" which act as a physical barrier to dust particles. Once a dust particle covers a pore in the media, air can no longer flow through that space. K&N® replacement air filters are designed to absorb dirt and dust particles instead of physically blocking them, allowing the pores in the material to continue flowing air.
