K&N 33-5039 replacement air filter for the 2014-2016 Mercedes-AMG GT and 2014-2016 Mercedes-AMG GTS
Super sports cars are, well, sports cars, that happen to possess other worldly amounts of performance, luxury, and style. Some of the masterpieces in this segment include the Porsche 911 Turbo, Aston Martin Vantage, and as of 2014, the Mercedes AMG GT. Thanks to a brilliantly timed acquisition in 2005, the bad boys in Affalterbach answer to the overlords that command the Three-Pointed Star. A major benefit of their allegiance is a virtually unlimited R&D budget, which they used to create a brand new super GT. Their snarling monster was developed entirely in-house, and handily beats their target benchmark, the Porsche 911. The 2014-2016 Mercedes Benz AMG GT/AMG GTS differ from the Stuttgart stallion in a number of ways. First of all, it's got a crazy-powerful V8 mounted in the front, the exhaust sounds like a volcano eruption, and it has a level of refinement that could only come from Mercedes Benz. You'd be hard pressed to improve the performance of this AMG rocket ship. But you can make the throttle unleash that 469-503 horsepower much faster, by simply installing a low restriction K&N 33-5039 replacement air filter.
A K&N 33-5039 Replacement Air Filter increases airflow and sharpens throttle response
Despite having two intercooled turbos mounted in the 'V' between the cylinder banks, and a NASA-Grade ECU, the 4.0L V8 in the Mercedes AMG GT still needs air to turn fuel into speed. It's supplied by the massive AMG intake, which uses a pair of paper OE air filters to clean the air before it reaches the engine. Dirt, dust, small bugs, leaves, pretty much anything that gets sucked into the airbox, winds up on the surface of the air filter. As the miles rack up, all of that accumulated dirt will start to restrict the airflow, causing the engine to work harder just to make the same amount of power. These surface-loading air filters will certainly get the job done. But even when they're brand new, the paper filter media doesn’t flow as much air as a K&N replacement air filter.
To overcome the shortcomings of the OEM air filter, the K&N 33-5039 replacement air filter uses a depth-loading design to trap and hold dirt inside the filter. It's made from 4-6 layers of cotton gauze, sandwiched between two aluminum wire screens. The filter media is treated with a specially formulated oil (that's where the iconic red color comes from) that works its way through the cotton fibers, creating a sticky web that can stop even microscopic dirt particles. Once the dirt becomes ensnared in the cotton web, that K&N Filter Oil will soak into it, making it sticky and able to capture other dirt particles. By literally turning dirt into a filtration element, the K&N replacement filter can provide superior filtration and outstanding airflow, even when it gets dirty. Then about every 50,000 miles (depending on driving conditions), you simply clean the filter and give it another oil treatment using the K&N air filter cleaning kit.
The reusable K&N 33-5039 Replacement Air Filter will add even more bite to the AMG GT
Thanks to its innovative construction, the K&N 33-5039 replacement air filter is able to flow up to 50% more air than a stock paper filter. This allows that big twin-turbo V8 to be more responsive at lower RPMs, which can help the throttle respond much quicker to your inputs. Using a K&N replacement air filter won't void your warranty either. Plus, it's covered by the K&N 10-Year/Million Mile Limited Warranty, so it will probably be the last air filter that you have to buy.
