K&N 33-3045 air filter for Toyota 2.8L or 2.4L diesel

The K&N 33-3045 is designed to replace the air filter on your Toyota 2.8L or 2.4L diesel perfectly.

The Toyota 1GD-FTV is a modern 2.8L straight-4 common rail diesel engine with a variable nozzle turbocharger (VNT) with Intercooler. It features a chain-driven DOHC cylinder head with 16 valves. The 1GD-FTV generates 177 horsepower and 330 lb-ft of torque when equipped with the 6-speed automatic transmission, depending on the country in which it's sold. Peak torque is slightly lower when equipped a manual transmission.

Everything needed to install your K&N 33-3045 filter in minutes is included in the box.

The 1GD-FTV engine was first introduced in 2015 installed in the Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, second gen Toyota Innova in select countries, the second generation Toyota Fortuner, and the eighth generation of the esteemed Toyota Hilux.

The 2GD-FTV is a 2.4L version of the 1GD-FTV and as such shares many components and design features. The smaller engine generates 149 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque when mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, depending on the country in which it's sold. Like the larger version, peak torque is slightly lower when equipped a manual transmission.

The smaller engine was also introduced in 2015 and first installed in second generation models of the Toyota Innova, the second generation Toyota Fortuner, and eighth generation Toyota Hilux.

In any case, whether you're driving a Toyota truck or SUV with the 2.8 L or 2.4L, both offer reasonable torque but horsepower, especially of the 2.4L engine, is in the range of a 2.0L Toyota Corolla.

To add more horsepower, as well as increase torque, K&N has developed the 33-3045 automotive replacement air filter. The K&N filter provides an increase of up to 50% incremental air flow to the engine. By increasing the flow of air, it can result in a more responsive throttle and improved torque at all points of your Toyota diesel's operating range.

K&N air filters are manufactured from multiple layers of oiled cotton filter media, which accounts for their efficiency, and not only allows for increased air flow but also offers excellent filtration characteristics. Often OEM and less-expensive filters are made from more restrictive paper media which can actually limit the output potential of the engine. Each filter design is verified through K&N's in-house efficiency testing, which adheres to ISO 5011 protocols, and ensures that K&N filters provide high intake airflow without sacrificing engine protection.

And once you've installed your K&N 33-3045 air filter you've eliminated the need to purchase and replace paper filters for the life of your diesel-powered Toyota Land Cruiser Prado, Toyota Innova, Toyota Fortuner, or Toyota Hilux. The only maintenance is a service you can do yourself in just a short time. At intervals of 50,000 miles or about 80,000 kilometers (depending on your driving conditions) just use a K&N air filter cleaning kit to easily clean and re-oil your air filter -- returning it to like-new. 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. For full details, read K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty.
