K&N's New FIPK® Intake Gives SVT Cobras 30 More Ponies

 
 
RIVERSIDE, CA - The 2003 and 2004 SVT Mustang Cobra are two of the most exciting American vehicles of all time. In box-stock form, its supercharged 4.6L DOHC V-8 pumps out 390 horsepower. Now '03 and '04 Cobra owners can break the 400-HP barrier with K&N Engineering's new Fuel Injection Performance Kit (FIPK® part # 57-2545). Testing on K&N's Dynojet 248 dynamometer revealed that this kit produced up to a 30 peak HP gain at the rear wheels! Cobras fitted with aftermarket exhausts experienced even greater improvements.

K&N developed this kit from scratch. Preliminary testing with pre-existing filters and intake tubes hinted at substantial gains and sent engineers back to the drawing board to eke out every possible horsepower. They developed a new conical FilterCharger® filter that's longer and has a different taper than the company's comparable applications. This new filter single-handedly accounts for 5-7 additional HP. Also, varying tract configurations didn't make appreciable power gains, so this K&N kit retains the OE intake tube. Resulting cost-savings are passed on to the customer. (Kit MSRP is $260.00.) The art and science of the K&N's Cobra FIPK® is in its special radius adapter that mates the filter to the OE mass-air sensor and allows for smooth airflow from the filter to the intake tract.

Installation is relatively straightforward. Major steps include removing the stock intake tube from the throttle body, adding the K&N radius adapter and heat shield to the mass-air sensor, clamping the air filter to the sensor assembly and mounting the FIPK® to the vehicle using the kit's bracketry. This system is covered by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty, and the FilterCharger® filter can be repeatedly cleaned and re-oiled with a K&N recharger kit.
