Lukey Air Filters


Now then,
Has anybody got any feedback of the Lukey Performance Air Filters? A direct comparison against the K&N would be great. They do an LF001 which should suit the Xtrail.

Cheers.

Re: Lukey Air Filters


I have read good reports and feedback about the Lukey air filters and they are cheaper than K&N if the price tag is your main driver to favoring Lukey over K&N.

They do last for 100,000kms as reported compared to life-time of K&N filters. They do not need re-oiling and this in fact reduces their filtration ability compared to the K&N which uses oil in its filtration. The trick however is follow the oiling tips correctly so you don't end-up damaging the MAF sensors.

I have NOT tried using Lukey filters as I have always used K&N and can not fault them, but based on what I have read, I don't think Lukey filters are a bad choice and certainly worth a try.

I would only question the advertised 8KW gain they keep claiming as there is no way a panel air filter can give you that much gain, not even K&N.

Their comparison filter must have been a slab of pizza for the gains to be in the order of 8kw!

Re: Lukey Air Filters


I used a Lukey Filter before going to K&N. I didn't notice any power difference over the standard filter, but I suppose for value for money it's better as its washable with water (and mild soap) and dosen't require any special degreaser or oil.
The K&N is much better if you are after more performance as I noticed more torque at lower revs with the K&N.
The 8kw power gain they claim are for a VY 5.7 litre SS commodore so I suppose (just guessing here) you could expect about half of that for the Xtrail.

Re: Lukey Air Filters


Iv'e been using the luckey panel air filter for over two years, the fact that it's re washable many times over is the main benefit i have found. i'm sure with care it will last a few more years yet.
