This makes the Corvette an excellent buy, offering a lot of bang for the buck. A K&N air intake system is also legendary for offering an outstanding level of performance for the money. Offering a guaranteed horsepower gain, K&N’s air intake systems will make it seem like you have a different car.

K&N cold air intakes completely replace the restrictive factory air intake assembly with an aerodynamically engineered tube and an oversized air filter. K&N’s rotationally molded high-density polyethylene tubes offer the most flexibility in design and outstanding horsepower numbers. With a K&N performance air intake system, consumers can count on increased acceleration and horsepower whether winding along a lonely country road or passing cars on a highway.

This air intake system uses a uniquely shaped carbon fiber high-flow air filter (RP-5161).  This filter captures harmful particles, increases airflow, and also increases service life. This K&N air filter performs for up to 100,000 miles before service is required depending on driving conditions. The 63-3073 takes about 90 minutes or less to install, using simple hand tools, requires no cutting or drilling, and is covered by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty®.

For increased protection and style, K&N offers a Drycharger® filter wrap number RP-5135DK that can be used in conjunction with the 63-3073 air intake.  Drychargers® are made from a durable polyester material containing uniform micron openings which will stop small dirt particles and repel water; yet add little restriction to the airflow of the filter.

The K&N 63-3073 air intake system fits the following vehicles:
2013 Chevrolet Corvette 6.2L V8
2012 Chevrolet Corvette 6.2L V8
2011 Chevrolet Corvette 6.2L V8
