The Chevy Cruze is a unique entry in the compact sedan market. Its smaller engine is actually the high performance version and the most economic version is actually the larger engine. The LS version of the Chevy Cruze has the naturally aspirated 1.8 liter engine. This engine gets better gas mileage than the 1.4 liter turbocharged engine that is installed in the rest of the line; however, that additional mileage comes at the cost of power. With the K&N 69-4522TS air intake system we can help Chevy Cruze owners with the 1.8 liter engine bridge the gap and bring out the best of the 1.8 liter engine.

The K&N 69-4522TS air intake kit increases the horsepower and acceleration of your Chevy Cruze. This is accomplished by removing the restrictive stock intake tube and air filter and replacing them with optimized tubing, a protective heat shield and a high-flow air filter. With these parts the engine is allowed to breathe more easily, devoting less power to suction and more power to the drive wheels. When installed, the 69-4522TS resulted in an estimated gain of 5.65 horsepower and a 6.86 lb-ft of torque to the wheels of a 2011 Chevy Cruze with 1.8 liter engine. This additional power will be a welcome gain for the Cruze owner looking for some additional get up and go.

The 69-4522TS intake system is a simple bolt-on replacement for the factory intake and installation can be completed with basic hand tools in about 90 minutes. Also, the RU-5147 air filter on the intake is washable and reusable so it never needs to be replaced, and only needs to be cleaned once about every 100,000 miles, depending on driving conditions.
