A few years back Pontiac decided to restore its reputation as GM's High-Performance brand. Pontiac has seen much success with their line of G8 models. A mechanical twin of the highly successful Holden Commodore sedan, the G8 brings back the power and rear wheel drive once missing from Pontiac's new car offerings. Entry-level G8 V6 models are capable of producing over 250 hp, which means the G8 rivals full size competitors from Chrysler as well as those in  Germany. Also helping to restore Pontiac's performance heritage is K&N Air Intake System part 63-3072 for the 2008-09 G8 with a 3.6 liter V6 engine.

K&N's Performance Air Intake System 63-3072 helps fire up an already impressive sport sedan with a nearly 11 horsepower increase at the rear wheels.

K&N's 63-3072 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. This results in more power when you need it. With a K&N Performance Air Intake System, consumers can count on extra horsepower whether picking up the kids from school or winding along a mountain road.

This air intake system uses a conical shaped high-flow chrome-top air filter (RC-5138) 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 air freely, and has a long 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.

The 63-3072 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®.
