K&N Engineering's FIPK for the Chevy SSR has a Very Cool Look

 
 
The 2003, 2004 Chevrolet SSR 5.3L V8 can go from 0-60 mph in 7.6 seconds and can tow 2,500 pounds. Design, however, is paramount with the SSR. The outside rear-view mirrors look as if they belong on a race car. The huge fenders and aerodynamic hood are additional distinguishing features.

K&N Engineering has expanded its line of 57-Series Generation II Fuel Injection Performance Kits by adding the 57-3046 for the 2003, 2004 Chevrolet SSR 5.3L V8.

"The biggest challenge we had in our research and development process was getting the FIPK to fit under the hood," said K&N Performance Kit Manager Bert Heck. "We kept a test SSR for more than a month but we accomplished it."

K&N's designers stayed with the theme of GM's hot rod look. "Once we figured out what we needed K&N Engineer's made a carbon filter and powder coated the heat shield to match the engine cover," said Heck. "The plate says SSR. It looks very cool."

K&N tested the 2004 Chevrolet SSR 5.3 liter V8 on the in-house dynamometer and results showed a 5.39 horsepower gain at 5217 RPM. "We went into this knowing GM was going to have the SSR motor tweaked," said Heck. "But we managed to get additional horsepower."

The 57-Series Intake Kit consists of a high-flow K&N Air Filter (RP-5115) that can go up to 100,000 miles between cleanings depending on driving conditions.

Covered by the famous K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty, the 57-Series Intake Kit is easy to install using simple hand tools in 90 minutes or less. Find K&N products for your vehicle using the K&N application search then use the K&N dealer search to find a K&N dealer in your part of the world.
