K&N Air Intake System Adds an Estimated 17 Horsepower to 2017 Nissan Titan 5.6L

The Nissan Titan is perfect for daily driving, family hauling, or taking tools to the worksite

A K&N 63-6019 Aircharger intake system is a relatively inexpensive modification with a high return, adding an estimated 17.14 horsepower to your 5.6L 2017 Nissan Titan with a simple DIY installation that takes less an hour using common hand tools and requires no re-calibration of engine electronics.

The 2017 Nissan Titan is powered by a 5.6L V8 gas engine with DOHC, four valves per cylinder, direct fuel injection, and variable valve event and lift (VVEL), it’s a modern engine that’s optimized to get all the power possible out of a gallon of gas. Even still, the Titan 5.6L V8 delivers an impressive 390 horsepower and 394 lb-ft of torque.

Yet through a combination of technologies K&N engineers have developed a bolt-on cold air intake system that provides the highest levels of performance and protection, including a substantial increase in power and response.

Extensive research and development went into the AirCharger kit for the 2017 Nissan Titan

An AirCharger intake is comprised of a polyethylene intake tube, heat shield, and oversized filter

The first technical element addressed is the air filter itself. Most OEM air filters are made of paper, which clogs quickly and limits air flow. The K&N 63-6019 Aircharger intake system utilizes an oversized 7.5-inch K&N RC-2960 air filter manufactured from an oiled cotton filter media which offers less resistance than traditional filters.

The multi-layered oiled cotton filter material also captures microparticles that could damage your engine and ensures a long engine life. Each design is verified through K&N’s in-house filtration testing lab, which adheres to ISO 5011 standards, ensuring that K&N filters provide high airflow without putting engine protection at risk.

The second technical element is the sealed heat shield. Its function is to provide a large opening at the front of the vehicle to provide fresh, clean incoming air to feed the filter, intake, and engine. At the same time, the heat shield isolates that cool intake air from high underhood temperatures.

The heat shield and filter are designed to be located in the original OEM air box space

An aluminum heat shield, which fits in the location of the OEM air filter housing, is sealed from underhood heat contamination with a rubber seal. The entire heat shield is designed to install in the original air filter housing location using factory mounting fixtures. K&N goes through all this effort as cooler air is denser, carrying additional oxygen to which your fuel system can add more fuel, increasing horsepower.

The third technical element is the connection between the filter and the intake of the engine. Air is drawn through an aerodynamically verified, non-metallic rotationally molded tube that can reduce intake air temperature and decrease intake sound over a metal tube.

Additionally, the high-density polyethylene tube can be precisely shaped to reduce turbulence and accelerate airflow into the engine. Provisions have been molded into the intake tube to accept the factory mass air flow sensor and both EVAP hoses.

Complete detailed and illustrated installation instructions are included in the box

Best of all, the K&N AirCharger intake system can be installed in 90 minutes or less with simple hand tools like a ratchet set, a few screwdrivers, and a couple of wrenches. All tools required are listed in the clear, step-by-step photo-illustrated instructions specific to your car that come included in the package.

The Aircharger kit comes with all the necessary boots, clamps, and hardware for an OE fit and finish. The kit also utilizes OEM mounting brackets and hardware for quick and easy installation, with no holes to drill.

And once you’ve installed your K&N filter you’ve eliminated the need to buy another air filter for the life of your covered 2017 Titan. The only maintenance is a service you can do yourself in no time at all. At intervals of 100,000 miles (depending on your driving conditions) use the K&N 99-5000 Recharger Kit to easily clean your AirCharger air filter, preparing it for another 100,000 miles of driving.

The K&N air filter you purchase is designed to last for the lifetime of your vehicle, which K&N guarantees will perform with the K&N 10-Year/Million Mile Limited Warranty.

The K&N 63-6019 is designed to fit the following vehicles:
