The 2008 Nissan Pathfinder received its biggest update since 2005. For the first time, a V8 engine is available, along with a revised interior including a larger center stack display screen.  K&N also saw the potential for improvement and built one of its Air Intake Systems (77-6016KS) for the 2008 5.6 liter V8 model.

K&N air intakes are designed to reduce intake restriction and provide a smooth air path between the air filter and the motor. Less restriction means more power and torque when you need it.

OE emissions devices are reused on the 77-6016KS and K&N's design works with factory computer settings.

The 77-6016KS uses a chrome top universal air filter (RC-4381) with a powder coated aluminum heat shield in place of the vehicle's air box. The K&N air filter captures harmful particles, provides a large surface area and allows air to flow with little restriction.  The heat shield isolates the K&N air filter from the engine compartment and allows it to receive a consistent flow of fresh outside air.

The washable and reusable K&N air filter can perform up to 100,000 miles before service is required. Installation can be performed in 90 minutes of less. The 77-6016KS is also backed by K&N’s famous Million Mile Limited Warranty.
