The 2007 Jeep Compass entered a segment of the automotive market that already has many established players.  It plans to attract non-traditional Jeep buyers with its compact SUV design. The 2007 Dodge Caliber performs well, and like the Jeep, is a crossover vehicle.

K&N Engineering, Inc. has manufactured a 50 US State street legal air intake (57-1552) for the 2007 and 2008 Jeep Compass 2.0 liter and 2.4 liter engine and for all three engine options of the 2007 and 2008 Dodge Caliber. The Dodge Caliber comes with the option of a 1.8 liter, 2.0 liter or 2.4 liter engine.

"The factory tube has an accordion shaped connection in the middle of an s-shaped bend," said K&N Performance Kit Manager Bert Heck.  "Its accordion shaped rings are restrictive compared to the K&N engineered air intake." K&N dynamometer testing shows a horsepower gain of 7.94 @ 4557 RPM on the 2.4 liter engine.

For maximum performance simply replace the factory tube and airbox with K&N's air intake system. The 57-1552's tube is smooth with no accordion rings, said Heck. "The heat shield isolates the K&N Air Filter (RU-4730) from the heat of the engine and attaches to a factory fresh air duct," he said. "This means more air gets to the engine resulting in more power."

It takes less than an hour to install this kit. The lifetime K&N Air Filter comes with the famous K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty.
