The 2018 Chevrolet Colorado is a highly-rated compact pickup truck, featuring a powerful towing capacity (7,000 lbs. on the V6 model), comfortable cabin, and available features including wireless phone charging, forward collision alert, lane departure alert, and a Wi-Fi hot spot (among others). The 3.6L V6 engine offers 308-horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 2018 GMC Canyon 3.6L V6 also offers a comfortable ride, high-quality interior materials, and multiple tech features—including a rearview camera, USB port, Apple CarPlay, and a six-speaker sound system. The 3.6L V6 engine also provides 308-horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque.

For those looking for an extra boost in horsepower for either of these compact pickup models, the K&N® 77-3104KP Air Intake System can help decrease air turbulence that may slow the volume of airflow reaching your engine. Many factory intake systems have components that can be consolidated in order to direct airflow more efficiently.

The K&N® 77-3104KP air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent polished aluminum tube cold air intake system designed to replace the factory air filter and air intake components. The included polished aluminum intake tube is engineered to be aerodynamic, and the High-Flow™ Air Filter (also included in the kit) also helps increase airflow to your engine—while simultaneously providing exceptional protection from contaminants. The oversized conical filter shape allows for up to 100,000 miles between cleanings (under normal highway driving conditions). When it does need to be cleaned, you can use the K&N Recharger® Kit (99-5000) to quickly and easily restore your filter’s performance. Each intake and filter is designed to last for the life of your vehicle.

The 77-3104KP system also features a custom powder-coated aluminum heat shield which protects the air filter and intake air from high engine temperatures. The heat shield installs onto the lower factory air box and retains the fresh air inlet. The air intake tube funnels airflow directly into the engine’s throttle body, offering a guaranteed increase in horsepower and torque.

Since the kit utilizes existing factory mounting points, requires only basic hand tools, and incorporates the factory mass air sensor, installation can typically be completed in 90 minutes or less.

Using a K&N replacement air intake system will not void your factory warranty (as some consumers may think); in the U.S., manufacturers must provide evidence that an aftermarket part is the cause of a necessary repair in order to void or deny warranty coverage. The Consumer Products Warranty Act of 1975 (also known as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) protects consumers’ rights to their warranty coverage.

You are guaranteed to experience an increase in horsepower and torque with your new K&N air intake system. On a chassis dynamometer, a 2017 Chevrolet Colorado V6 with the stock air intake was recorded at 217.2-hp at 6,498rpm, and after installation of the 77-3104KP the same vehicle was recorded at 231.7-hp at 6,498rpm—an estimated increase of 14.5-hp. The torque was also improved from 182.9 lb-ft on the stock air intake to 190.6 lb-ft with the 77-3104KPa total estimated increase in torque of 7.7 lb-ft at 3,734rpm. You can buy with confidence under the 10-Year/Million Mile Limited Warranty, and the assurance that you’re receiving top quality when you purchase a K&N product.

FAQs

Will using a K&N® replacement air intake system void my factory warranty?

No. In the United States, in order for the manufacturer of a warranted product to void or deny warranty coverage of a repair due to the use of an aftermarket part, the manufacturer must provide proof that the aftermarket part is the cause of the necessary repair. These rights are protected under the Consumer Products Warranty Act of 1975 (also referred to as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act).

Are K&N® performance air intake systems or RK-series custom air cleaner assemblies emissions legal in the U.S.?

Performance intake systems are legal for street use in most areas of the United States.

In California, and in specific regions which have adopted California air quality regulations, only CARB-exempt performance intakes are legal for street use.

Check the K&N catalog or website for vehicle applications and specific CARB status for each vehicle and air intake.

Can a K&N® product cause my Check Engine Light or Service Light to come on?

It is possible that the Check Engine Light may come on after installing a K&N air filter or performance intake system. This does not necessarily mean that there is something wrong with your air filter or intake; sometimes, the higher air flow and lower restriction provided by the K&N product will uncover an existing mechanical or electronic issue with your vehicle. In rare cases, you may have a K&N product which was manufactured outside of its design tolerances, causing sensors in your vehicle to read data outside of their normal expected values. In either case, the K&N Warranty Department can work with you to narrow down the cause of the Check Engine Light and correct the issue.

How much horsepower does a K&N® cold air intake add?

Dynamometer tests indicating horsepower and torque increases over the OEM intake system will appear on the "Product Details" page for each of our performance intake systems.

What does a cold air intake do for a car?

Cold air intakes allow for increased airflow to your engine, which results in an increase in torque and acceleration for your vehicle.

Can cold air intakes improve gas mileage?

In theory, a cold air intake could increase the gas mileage of your vehicle due to improved airflow which allows the engine to run more efficiently and require less fuel. However, K&N does not make any guarantees in terms of increased gas mileage with the use of our filters or intakes.
