American made luxury automobiles, like Cadillac, once captivated the imagination of consumers around the globe. With the rise of the young urban professional, European, and later Japanese, luxury cars invaded the market. American luxury became thought of as a "grandfather's" car. This unfavorable stereotype no longer holds true for Cadillac. Gone are the days of heavy, inefficient land yachts. Cadillac's CTS-V helps to usher in this new era of American built luxury cars. The "V" moniker in the Cadillac line-up is intended as a direct contender to imported luxury such as BMW's M series and Lexus' F cars.

Performance Air Intake System 63-3068 stimulates an already incredible super sport sedan with a 17 horsepower increase at the rear wheels. K&N's Research and Development Department tested a 2007 Cadillac CTS-V 6.0L V8 on our in-house dynamometer. Results showed an increase across the RPM range with a staggering peak horsepower gain of 17.09 horsepower @ 5,117 RPM! K&N's 63-3068 fits the 2006 and 2007 Cadillac CTS-V 6.0L and provides increased performance while maintaining that "O/E" look with a rotationally molded high-density polyethylene tube.

K&N intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as they smooth and straighten airflow. More air means more power and torque when you need it. With a K&N Performance Air Intake System, consumers can count on extra horsepower whether entertaining clients, or winding through the Santa Monica mountains.

This air intake system uses a round tapered high-flow chrome-top air filter (RC-2960) and powder coated aluminum heat shield in place of the vehicle's stock air box. The result is an air filter that captures harmful particles, flows more air, and increases service life. This K&N air filter performs for up to 100,000 miles before service is required depending on driving conditions. Improving the air path between the filter and the engine is the rotationally molded high-density polyethylene tube. It offers the most flexibility in design and outstanding horsepower numbers. 63-3068 takes about 90 minutes or less to install, using simple hand tools, requires no cutting or drilling, and is covered by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty®.

For increased protection and style, K&N offers Drycharger® filter wrap number 22-8049DK that can be used in conjunction with 63-3068. Drychargers® are made from a durable polyester material containing uniform micron openings which will stop small dirt particles and repel water; yet add little restriction to the airflow of the filter.
