I put this on a V6 the paper filter measured 11.5 x 8.5 so I did some searching for K&N filters that met that requirement.

This filter was designed for a Jeep Grand Cherokee but seeing that K&N didn't cross reference this same dimension for the Borego I wanted to help everyone else so they don't have to do the research I did to get one.
Enjoy....

The part number is 33-2420 for the K&N
Here is the link.

I just tried this link and It doesn't seem to work anymore so let's try shopping with this link.

I got the same email the other day. I already got one that fits (33-2420) a few months ago. I compared the two on the K&N website and found that the one I got earlier designed for Jeep has slightly less airflow (536.8 CFM) than the one designed for the Borrego (33-2447, 595.3 CFM). I also noticed that the 33-2420 was 5/8 inch taller than the 33-2447; also the 33-2420 holds almost double the required oil. This probably accounts for the reduced airflow. I might pick the 33-2447 because I feel the need to have the filter that was designed for an exact fit.

old thread, but should probably add this...

I won't ever use a K&N in any engine I care about. Simple physics, if you want more air to pass, you have to filter it less. K&N's simply allow more dirt through. Do a used oil analysis from blackstone labs sometime, it might change you mind about non-paper element filters.

(disclaimer, I race high performance turbocharged cars. I've dynoed the same engine with and without a k&N. IF there is an increase, it isn't enough for the increased dirt. EVERY single oil analysis will instantly show increased measurements of elements associated with a bad air filter.)

Hey all,

New owner here. just bought myself a V6 LX 4WD. Nice copperhead colored base model, with no options except grey leather and factory floor mats.

Now regarding these air filters, I'm a little confused. K&N 33-2420 for the Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.0 diesel crosses to the Spectre 888817, right?

But the K&N for the Borrego is 33-2447 and that crosses to the Spectre 889401 - even though their application guide doesn't list a filter for the Borrego.

Above Mark posted the specs for both of the K&N filters and the Borrego filter (33-2447) flows about 11% higher CFM, which seems totally counter-intuitive since the Jeep filter has deeper pleats - which translates to more filter media area - which usually means less restriction and higher air flow.

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone tried the Borrego-specific K&N (or the Spectre equivalent) and how it worked out for you. And for those who bought the Spectre 888817, how is it holding up for you?

Hello Everyone,

I installed K&N air filter into my 2003 Sorento about 2000 miles ago.
Things I have noticed since the installation:
No Gas mileage improvement
Engine does sound just a tiny bit louder
Maybe just a tad better acceleration

Overall I am happy with the filter but not sure if it really does anything big on improving the SUV ride, although I will take any small improvements anytime.

Did anyone noticed if Tornado Air System helps with gas mileage or any other benefit?

Thank you and Happy Holidays!
