K&N Intake System Frees Up An Extra 18 Horsepower For Brutish American-Made Dodge Viper

 
 
The 2008 Dodge Viper defines brute power. Equipped with an 8.4-liter, 10-cylinder engine, the 2008 Dodge Viper is capable of producing over 600 horsepower. The Viper is often considered primitive when compared to ultra-luxurious supercars from Europe. However, what the Viper lacks in plush trim and options, it makes up for with its track credentials.

The 2008 Viper is reported to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.7 seconds, cover the quarter mile in 11.8 seconds, and reach top speeds of around 200 mph. Combine that level of sheer power with the ability to precisely maneuver through turns, stop from 60-0 mph in around 100 feet, and the 2008 Viper will leave a venomous taste in mouths of European supercar owners.

K&N engineers are always hunting for more power. After looking under the hood of the 2008, 2009 and 2010 Dodge Viper, K&N engineers knew the Viper was capable of more. Much consideration was put into the design of part number 69-2527TTR.

The stock Viper intake tract uses a dual throttle body set up fed by a common plenum with a single air filter. K&N intake 69-2527TTR replaces the stock pieces with twin powder coated mandrel-bent aluminum intake tubes and dual K&N high-flow air filters for improved air delivery.

This performance air intake system incorporates a unique heat shield, and the dual air filters line up with the factory fresh air intake on the hood. The result of this hard work and enthusiasm for performance is a nearly 19 horsepower gain at the wheels.

K&N’s Research and Development Department tested a 2008 Dodge Viper 8.4-liter V10 on our in-house dynamometer. Results showed horsepower increases throughout the RPM range with a shocking peak horsepower gain of 18.69 horsepower @ 5,300 RPM! 69-2527TTR provides improved performance with attractive red powder coated aluminum intake tubes to match the 2008 Viper’s valve covers.

K&N air intakes completely replace the restrictive factory air intake assembly with an aerodynamically engineered tube and an oversized air filter. With a K&N Performance Air Intake System, consumers can count on extra horsepower whether cruising along with fellow Viper owners, or competing at Laguna Seca.

This air intake system uses two conical shaped, chrome topped, high-flow air filters (RF-1048) and a 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 more air, and provides 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 are the powder coated aluminum intake tubes. Our powder coated aluminum intake tubes offer power and a stylish appearance. 69-2527TTR takes about 90 minutes or less to install, using stock mounting points, requires no drilling, and is covered by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty®.

For increased protection and style, K&N intake 69-2527TTR includes Drycharger® filter wraps (RF-1048DK) intended be used during inclement weather. 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 the filter. Available in a variety of colors, K&N Drychargers® can be color coordinated with a car’s finish.
