Place racing gives us K&N filters, while Hotshot gives us Hiper filters. What is the difference between the filters? Is Hiper a good name brand? Is there an advantage to having a K&N opposed to a Hiper? I just want to know what the big deal with K&N is.

I dont think it matters as far as performance. They both share a similar design. I have both filters setting right next to me so i can tell you they both look to be of equal quality.

All I know about Hiper is that I don't like the headlight bulbs.
But HotShot is known for quality products. If they use Hiper filters, then I'm cool with Hiper filters.

Just my .02

The Hiper filter is just a K&N knockoff. I wouldn't expect them to be of lower quality...just a little less expensive.

are the hiper filters reusable like K&N? If so, Could you use the K&N reoil kit for it? or does hiper make their own reoil kit?

Yep, they are washable and you can oil it with the k&N oil kit

K&N's carry the lifetime warranty where THe other company doesn't That's a big consideration to think about

ya, but I don't think that K&N's warranty covers wear and tear. What else could go wrong with your filter?

they cover wear and tear that's what the million mile warranty,,,for instance here's a case my friend has a K&N drop in filter and he has it for 5-6 years and one day he was taking it out to clean it and caught it on a bolt and tore a little piece of it and he returned it and they sent him a new one.....
