Four Door Nissan Maxima Sports Car Receives 13 More Horsepower with K&N Air Intake System

 
 
A sports car is typically defined as having two doors, and often does not have a rear seat. This is not true with the Nissan Maxima. In 1989 Nissan boldly began calling their flagship sedan a Four Door Sports Car, or 4DSC for short.

More than 20 years later the Maxima’s sports car heritage is alive and well. The midsize Maxima is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 that is capable of producing 290 horsepower. Planting this power to the ground is a continuously variable transmission and an optional sport tuned suspension package.

Performance like this should turn the heads of some BMW and Mercedes owners as the Maxima flies past. Here to introduce even more performance to an already sporty sedan is K&N’s 69-7002TTK performance air intake system for the 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Nissan Maxima 3.5-liter V6 engine.

The Maxima’s high-tech 3.5-liter V6 with a continuously variable valve timing control system is an excellent candidate for one of K&N’s free-flowing mandrel-bent powder coated aluminum intake systems. K&N air intake 69-7002TTK replaces the Maxima’s stock intake tract while retaining the use of the factory fresh air intake duct.

K&N’s Research and Development Department tested a 2009 Nissan Maxima 3.5 liter V6 equipped with 69-7002TTK on our in-house dynamometer. Results showed horsepower increases across the RPM range with an extraordinary peak horsepower gain of 13.25 horsepower @ 5249 RPM! K&N air intake 69-7002TTK provides increased performance and an attractive black powder coated aluminum intake tube.

K&N intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as they smooth and straighten airflow by replacing the factory air intake assembly with an aerodynamically engineered tube and an oversized conical air filter. With a K&N performance air intake system, consumers can count on increased acceleration and horsepower whether curving along a lonely country road, or heading to work.

This air intake system uses a conical shaped chrome top high-flow air filter (RC-2960) and powder coated aluminum heat shield in place of the vehicle's stock air box. The result is a high-flow air filter that captures harmful particles, provides a large surface area, 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.

K&N air intake 69-7002TTK takes about 90 minutes or less to install, using stock mounting points, requires no cutting or drilling, and is covered by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty®.

For increased protection and style, K&N offers a Drycharger® filter wrap, number 22-8049DK, which can be used in conjunction with part number 69-7002TTK. 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 your filter.
