Campaign for K&N and AEM Air Filters

I would like to propose to the forum that we start a campaign to get K&N to make an air filter for our Tellurides (which would also fit the Palisade and 15-18 Sedona & Sorento).

Have used K&N for years in my Tribute, Escape, Terrain and motorcycles - saves money in the long run and lets the vehicle breathe easier for a bit more giddy up and MPG.

Even if you don't think you'd be interested in one - please send an email to K&N encouraging them to make it for the Telluride to help out those of us that would like one.

Their answer to my most recent request is shown below. You will find their email address there. Yes, I did provide them the part number they requested.

Share this with others that would benefit from the availability (Palisade, Sedona and Sorento owners...)

Thanks for considering.]

[Edit - adding AEM Induction Systems to the 'please contact' request, as they make a similar high flow air filter - sales@aemintakes.com]

Hello,

Thank you for contacting customer service. At this time, we do not have an air filter listed for your 2020 Kia Telluride 3.8L. Do you have an OEM part number we may cross reference? Would you like to be put on our email list for product release for your vehicle?

Thank you,

Just in case anyone reading this thread live in Southern California, I put this on another thread about intakes.

I reached out to K&N/AEM and got the response below a couple weeks ago.

Here is the info if anyone is in

I’m Bryan V and I work for K&N filters including AEM. We are looking to fit check our intake system on a 2020 2020 KIA TELLURIDE, this will be free of any cost to you we will need the car for about 2-4 days and our end goal is to equip your car with our intake system! And we'll provide a rental car for you.

Let me know if you are interested.

Thank you,

Bryan Vallejo

All, in case anyone new is here, K&N is still looking for someone to test fit and give a free intake to.

Hello,

We still have not had the Telluride owner sign up for testing and a free intake kit! I understand the holidays had people tied up, but if at all possible if your interested or can keep helping to spread the word we would appreciate it!

Thank you,

If I were in his area, I'd be in there in a minute...

But, what Bryan is talking about is fitting an entire intake system; when most of us are simply looking for the K&N replacement filter than fits in the stock housing. @Sleao, since you seem to have his ear - perhaps you can poke at him about when the replacement filter will be available...

FWIW

The K&N website now shows a replacement air filter in stock...

Ordered mine.

Thanks to all who contacted them.
