K&N replacement air filter for 2005 - 2010 Honda Odyssey 3.5L or 2009 - 2015 Honda Pilot 3.5L

The K&N replacement air filter for 2005 - 2010 Honda Odyssey 3.5L or 2009 - 2015 Honda Pilot 3.5L models is precision designed to fit your vehicle’s air box and form an air tight seal

Both 2005 - 20010 Honda Odyssey minivans and 2009 - 2015 Pilot SUVs use a version of Honda’s J35 series V6 engine. The engine was designed in the United States and is manufactured around the globe. The engineers who developed the J series engines went to great lengths to decrease the overall size of the motor versus its predecessor, the C series, so that the J35 V6 would take up only a little more room than a four-cylinder engine. Whereas the C series was a 90 degree V6, the Honda engineers narrowed the engine by decreasing the V-angle to 60 degrees (which also benefits even firing).

The bore centers were kept close and the engine features an undersquare configuration (narrower bore than length of the stroke), despite squeezing four valves into each cylinder. An undersquare design is also beneficial in developing torque, as the longer connecting rod has greater leverage on the crankshaft. The result is a V-6 aluminum block with iron cylinder liners, single overhead camshafts with variable valve timing, with a bore of 3.5 inches and a stroke of 3.7 inches, for a displacement of 3.5 liters.

What both the Odyssey and Pilot have in common is hauling people and gear. The Odyssey features a fairly standard minivan configuration with two front seats, two seats in the middle row, and a bench for three in the third row. Behind the third row is a deep well that can swallow a couple of weeks’ worth of groceries. The Pilot is actually an eight-passenger SUV, with two seats in the front and bench seats in the middle and the back. With the back seat raised, there’s little rear cargo area room left in the Pilot, particularly when compared to the Odyssey.

It’s easy to access the air filter of 2005 - 2010 Honda Odyssey 3.5L or 2009 - 2015 Honda Pilot 3.5L

It’s easy to access the air filter of 2005 - 2010 Honda Odyssey 3.5L or 2009 - 2015 Honda Pilot 3.5L models by unclipping and removing the top of the air box; without any tools required!

Both vehicles, when properly equipped by the dealer have a towing capacity of 3,500 lbs., which is a pretty hefty amount for a people mover powered by a 3.5 liter V-6 engine. On a straight, flat highway, towing is a breeze for these two Hondas. However, towing a bulky drag-inducing load, or having to climb steep grades, or even traverse high passes, and suddenly the Honda V6 engine begins to show a little strain.

The K&N automotive replacement air filter 33-2309, is designed to provide up to 50% more air flow to the engine, which can add horsepower and acceleration to your 2005 - 2010 Honda Odyssey 3.5L or 2009 - 2015 Honda Pilot 3.5L. What makes K&N air filters different is that K&N air filters are manufactured from multiple layers of oiled cotton filter media, rather than restrictive paper.

K&N’s design not only allows for increased airflow but also offers excellent filtration characteristics to help ensure long engine life. K&N tests each new filter design in its in-house testing lab, which operates following the ISO 5011 protocol for testing air filter filtration efficiency. This ensures that K&N replacement air filters provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection. To assure a tight fit and easy installation, K&N engineers design the filter to fit the Honda Odyssey and Pilot air box and not simply short-cut the process by duplicating the disposable filter itself. This more lengthy process results in a more precisely-formed product that seals better. And once you’ve installed your K&N filter you no longer have to purchase and repurchase paper filters for the life of the vehicle.

At each 50,000 mile interval, depending on driving conditions, an easy do-it-yourself service is required for a K&N automotive replacement filter.  Armed with the K&N Air Filter Cleaning Kit you can easily clean and re-oil your air filter, bringing it back to nearly brand-new condition and ready for another 50,000 miles of driving (depending upon your driving conditions). Your one K&N air filter is designed to last for the lifetime of your vehicle, which K&N guarantees will perform for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles without requiring replacement.
