The Sky Roadster was inspired by the English Vauxhall and put Saturn in the international design category. It has a wide stance, short overhangs and 18-inch wheels which are pushed to the corners. Another popular roadster is the Pontiac Solstice which sports an extra tailpipe out back and a small spoiler on the rear deck.
K&N Engineering has released a High Flow Air Intake System (69-8432TS) in powder coated silver for the 2007, 2008 and 2009 Saturn Sky 2.4 liter engine and the 2006 to 2019 Pontiac Solstice 2.4 liter engine.
K&N dynamometer tests show a 5.41 horsepower gain @ 4700 RPM. The heat shield is designed to go between the oversized K&N High-Flow Conical Air Filter (RU-4990) and the front of the radiator. This isolates the filter from engine bay heat and keeps the air around it cooled.
The extra surface area provides even more airflow at lower restriction than a standard K&N O/E replacement filter that is limited to the size of the factory air box. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine's RPM range. The oversized air filter also captures more dirt increasing the service life before a clearing (up to 100.000 miles) is required.
The K&N Air Filter is also protected by a Drycharger which provides added protection by repelling water from entering the intake track. The 69-8432TS is made from a free-flowing mandrel-bent aluminum tube.
It takes about an 90 minutes to install this K&N High-Flow Air Intake system with simple hand tools. The 69-8432TS is designed to improve engine performance and add under the hood visual appeal. K&N High-Flow Air Intake Systems come with the famous K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty.
