K&N replaces the original intake assembly with an all-new air intake design. The new system draws air from under the OE fresh air inlet through a K&N High-Flow Air Filter (RC-5165) that never needs to be replaced.

A powder coated steel heat shield mounts in place of the stock airbox and protects the chrome top cone shaped K&N air filter from engine heat. Air travels through a black textured powder coated aluminum tube and a 90-degree angled silicone hose that is attached to the throttle body.

It takes less than 90 minutes to install this cold air intake with simple hand tools. K&N Performance Intake Systems are designed to improve engine performance along with under the hood visual appeal.

Applications are as follows:

2006 GMC TOPKICK CK5500 6.6L V8 DSL
2006 GMC TOPKICK CK4500 6.6L V8 DSL
