Not since 1973 has Porsche's legendary RS name plate been available in the U.S. market. In 2007 the 911 GT3 RS hit American soil once again, creating much excitement among racing enthusiasts. The 911 GT3 RS has been described as a street-legal racecar intended as a homologation model for a range of racing series. Wearing a celebrated name like Porsche means the 2007 GT3 RS won't disappoint and neither will K&N's Performance Air Intake System, part number 63-7001.

With the addition of K&N's new Performance Air Intake System, part number 63-7001, GT3 RS owners can realize a gain of nearly 25 horsepower at the wheels! K&N's Research and Development Department tested a 2007 Porsche 911 GT3 RS 3.6L H6 on our in-house dynamometer. Results showed an increase of 24.65 horsepower @ 6726 RPM. K&N's 63-7001 provides increased performance while maintaining that "O/E" look with a rotationally molded high-density polyethylene tube.  Check out the video overview of this air intake for the Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

K&N intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as they smooth and straighten airflow. This allows your engine to pull in air with ease compared to the OEM air filter assembly. 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 driving down the Las Vegas strip, or twisting through the famous "Corkscrew" at Laguna Seca.

The 2007 GT3 incorporates ultra lightweight materials throughout. Keeping with the carbon fiber theme, the 63-7001 air intake system uses a conical shaped, carbon fiber top, high-flow air filter (RP-5167) and powder coated two-piece 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. 63-7001 takes about 90 minutes or less to install, with no cutting or drilling, and is covered by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty. Watch K&N's 63-7001 Air Intake Installation Video to see the simplicity of the installation process.

For increased protection and style, K&N includes Drycharger® filter wrap part number RF-1037DK with this air intake. Drycharger® filter wraps 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 your filter.
