K&N’s Orion air intake system is a universal cold air intake system. The Orion assembly is designed to increase volumetric efficiency and engine horsepower. The Orion incorporates a K&N famous cotton gauze air filter which is removable for periodic cleaning and provides the benefit of an open cone filter and standard air box in one unit. The plastic injection-molded housing acts as a heat shield to prevent any power loss. Assembly designs were flow tested for many hours before our engineers completed the Orion’s shape to provide high flow with low restriction and great filtration all in a small space. Included in the box is a template to cut your own vinyl wrap for personal customization of the housing. The assembly comes with a 76mm air filter base flange and a 100mm housing intake diameter. The filter base incorporates a 1/4 inch NPT threaded fitting to attach an optional vent adapter.

K&N 54-5000 Universal Air Intake System Product Reviews

Tuesday, October 31, 2017 - Part 54-5000
Sizing was perfect for my application. It was for a 2010 mercedes C63 6.3l V8. Housing plastic could be made a little more robust as mine dented and scratched up a bit during fitting. Overall power delivery now smoother. Dyno will be done shortly to see improvement over oem airboxes.

Mercedes 2010 C63 6.3 L V8 custom outfitted with the Orion’s. Figment was a little tight but otherwise good. Engine response was positive and no check engine lights. Will be dynoing shortly to test improvements. Filter housing could be a bit more robust as mine dented and scratched a few times during install fitting. Otherthise looks good and so far feels good.

After a few setbacks, this airbox design fit the best for the cramped engine compartment I had. I utilized two Orion’s to replace my factory oem boxes. Power delivery is smoother and top end pulls harder. Will be dynoing the vehicle to test and see if it made any improvement. Drivability was perfect with no stumbles or irratic idling or check engine lights. Great for a tight engine compartment and flows quite well. Filter is also quiet without the typical open element sound. Would be better if the housing was a little more robust as it’s quit thin but otherwise an excellent product and design.
