This 77-Series air intake was engineered specifically for the Hummer H3 and its computer's electronic specifications. The intake has a slightly smaller diameter on the filter end with engineered components strategically placed to ensure air flow characteristics fall within the vehicle's computer parameters while maximizing power at the rear wheels. The design incorporates a heat shield that takes advantage of the existing stock factory inlet to bring in cold air outside the engine compartment. The intake's polished finish, cost, and ease of installation make it one of the best horsepower additions available for the H3.

The 77-3044KP can be obtained through most national auto parts store chains as well as through many performance shops, auto repair facilities, and online stores. Go to to find a K&N dealer near you.
