I'm sure there is some problem with the filter. BTW i have a FFE too and have not been facing any problems since last 3 years.

@ashlyk - Our numbers kind of match in terms of increase in mileage and the duration since when we have been using the K&N so i guess the problem is with the filter here in sterlings case.

Thumbs up K&N filters for New Swift Kseries

Hi Guys,

Its my first post so please excuse me for any errors. I picked up a new Swift Black KSeries 1.2.L - a month back and the first mod that happened was the spoiler (will post picture soon). I have experienced the K&N Performance filter in my old Zen and it's pickup was awesome - so please advice/suggest for the following in Bangalore:

1.Is there a new K&N performance filter for new Swift Kseries 1.2L
2. Where is the best place to buy and fit it.

Thanks In Advance

I'm getting a Swift Zxi k series too like tonyjames.
I wanted to know what all types are available.
Will installing these void the warranty?

Tony, since you are in Blore, you can check with "Torque" in Indiranagar. I got my K&N performance filter and pipe installed there. Mine was 1.3 though.

Check with you dealer or service advisor. When I asked the dealer here in Blore, they said it will not void the warranty, so I went ahead.

For 1.3, there was no mods required, the pipe was available in the shop. Just remove the stock filter box and bolt on the performance one

Hi all,
I just got K&N high-flow Air filter with intake pipe for my swift petrol (year2008)

Should I install it by myself or should I have to go to the expert.

Please advice as soon as possible. As I have planned to go out in diwali vacation and I will travel near about 2000km in 15 days.

Is there any tuning work have to do? Cos I am not technical expert,
so please advice me.

Thanks!!

Sanjay

Looks good. Best is to go to an expert. You will need to have it fitted right and as far as I know the current fuel map in the ECU will also have to be initialised and rebuilt.

I had fitted a replacement K&N filter in my swift sometime ago. After fitting the filter they disconnected the battery and left it alone for about 45 minutes. Then reconnected it started up the car and raced the engine all the way a couple of times momentarily for the map to be rebuilt for the new filter.

Your ICE and other electronics may have be set up again because of the battery disconnect.

No Charge !! I had taken the car for some other work to the workshop. The battery was disconnected to drain out the fuel map.

Mind you mine was a replacement filter so it replaced the normal filter in the housing. You will have to check. BTW the K&N distributor in India is Methods Automotive. Give them a shout.

Methods Car Parts and Car Accessories Online Shop and Distributors in Bangalore India, K&N Performance Filters, Sparco Motorsport Accessories

There is absolutely no need to have it fitted by an expert. Also there is no need to disconnect the battery.

Disconnecting the battery only deletes the long term fuel trim information (otherwise known as 'the learning') which adjusts to the conditions in any case.

A re-map is not needed when making a revision to the air intake. However a re-map will always get the beat out of the engine when done properly (no generic re-map), which should be done on a chassis dyno.

Will installing the K&N Filter affect the engine life in any way? We are planning to install it for our santro and see if the mileage improves.

@ vishnurp99 for a santro 1.1ltr

in case of conical high flow k&n filter
don't expect your average to increase, coz' of the nice intake sound, you'll end up revving even more. the car feels more free revving and low end torque, meaning 3rd gear @speed of 20kph, you can accelerate out and no need to down shift.

Expect your engine life to go down after installation. If it allows more air than your OE filter, it means more dust enters too.

Talking Probably no mileage increase

Even the cheapest cars cost 250000 upwards and the swift costs 450000 upwards , don't you think an air filter if really fuel efficient and costing only upto 5k to 10k , the car manufaturer would not install as oe ? After all even the manufacturers want their cars to give better fuel economy . Compared to the cost of the car the air filter price is minimal , it would also be the selling USP of that car (higher mileage).As far as performance is concerned the more air you let into the engine obviously the car will breathe better , i.e. better performance .
