Innovative industry-leader secures Australian distribution rights for K&N air intakes

VCM Performance has expanded its range of high-quality name brands by securing the Australian distributorship for K&N Filters air intakes.
VCM Performance explains that it is a leading performance parts and tuning house which is renowned for its design and development of the popular OTR cold air intakes for LS-powered and VF V6 Commodores, supplying units as original equipment to Walkinshaw Performance, and exporting its own VCM-branded product worldwide.
It recently undertook an intense R&D program for K&N, designing and trialling new intakes for the market-leading 4×4 pick-ups, including the Toyota Hilux, Ford Ranger, Mazda BT4, Holden Colorado, and Isuzu D-Max.
“VCM Performance is an Australian owned and operated family business for which we have prided ourselves on being at the forefront of designing, developing, manufacturing, and distributing the highest quality induction, valve train, and supercharger products,” VCM Performance Managing Director, Mario Pancione, said.
“We have worked closely with K&N Filters for many years with its industry-leading filtration technology products being integral components for our VCM Performance range of OTR intakes.
“Acquiring the distribution rights for K&N’s air intakes was a natural progression, especially after working closely with the company expanding its range of quality products.”

For over 50 years, K&N says it has been an industry leader in automotive filtration and technology, offering products to increase performance, protection, and longevity in thousands of vehicle applications for consumers worldwide with a “More horsepower. More torque” guarantee.
The K&N brand joins a growing list of industry-leading brands offered by VCM Performance, including ARP, ATI Performance Parts, Deatchwerks, GM Performance Parts, Improved Racing, Lingenfelter, Mahle, PWR Performance Products, and Tuff Mounts.
VCM Performance is also the exclusive Australian distributor for Magnuson Superchargers and exclusive Australian and New Zealand agent for HP Tuners, having played an integral role in developing one of the market’s most comprehensive tuning software programs.
It has also designed and produced a range of VCM Performance camshafts and valve train packages.
“Our dyno-tuning experience and work with HP Tuners on the LS series engine has been a valuable asset in the design phase of our cam profiles and has enabled us to produce the perfect range of street cams and packages to suit every vehicle and need,” Mario said.
