K&N Performance Air Intake System 77-3085KP for 2014-2016 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4.3L and GMC Sierra 1500 4.3L EcoTec3 V6

These days a full-size pickup truck is expected to do more than just carry a fully loaded bed, or tow a trailer. A modern full-size pickup truck is expected to also incorporate a refined interior with modern-day technology, a comfortable platform that is quiet on-road, rugged off-road, and of course, it must have style. Not only that, but EPA requirements and consumer expectations have forced full-size truck manufacturers to squeeze more power and better fuel economy out of their engines.

General Motors (GM) used the 4.3L 4300 Vortec V6 as its base engine for the full-size Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 for years. In 2013 this engine was rated at 195 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. However, for 2014 the same size 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 engine with new technologies such as direct injection, variable valve timing, and even active fuel management, allows the standard V6 to produce 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. This puts the standard 2014 Silverado / Sierra EcoTec3 V6’s performance on par with the 4.8L Vortec V8 engine of the 2013 Silverado and Sierra.

This of course doesn’t mean that 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 owners won’t benefit from a little more horsepower and torque. In fact, by simply installing K&N performance air intake 77-3085KP 2014 Silverado and Sierra V6 owners can increase acceleration and add more power for hauling or towing.

The K&N 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4.3L and GMC Sierra 1500 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 air intake system is expert-engineered and guaranteed to increase horsepower and torque. It replaces the restrictive factory system with a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum air intake tube to help minimize restriction, straighten, and increase airflow to the engine. The intake tube is then finished with a bright, chrome-like, finish for good looks and durability.

A K&N high-flow chrome top conical air filter RF-1041 is fitted to the inlet of the intake system to provide superior airflow and superior performance without sacrificing filtration efficiency. The filter is washable and reusable and can go up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions.

When it does come time to service the K&N air filter, cleaning can be easily completed using one of K&N’s readily available Recharger air filter service kits. The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4.3L and GMC Sierra 1500 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 air intake system also incorporates an air filter heat shield which helps to guard cooler air entering the engine from ambient heat.

Because the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4.3L and GMC Sierra 1500 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 air intake system is designed to decrease restriction, and increase airflow, it is able to make impressive performance gains in horsepower and torque throughout the entire RPM range of the already powerful standard V6 engine.
