K&N tests have shown an 8 horsepower gain @ 6000 RPM for this intake. "The position of the mass air
sensor and the type and position of the filter used are very critical for power
gains," said K&N Project Designer Joost Adriaans. "We did a lot of testing with
all these variables."

No matter your color preference K&N Engineers have made sure the design on
the system provides maximum power to meet consumer demands. "The intake system

vehicle's design with this kit by positioning the filter far away from the
engine. Modifying one of the grill inserts provides extra air to the filter."
The filters on our Air Intake Kits are washable and reusable. It takes about 90
minutes or less to install this kit. Find K&N products for your vehicle using the K&N application search then use the
