Your OEM air induction system is a compromise between induction noise considerations, underhood space limitations and engine airflow requirements. Replacing that system is an easy way to improve engine performance. Increasing the airflow and air volume into your engine will result in more horsepower and torque and possibly more miles per gallon.
The heart of the 57i Series Induction Kit is the world famous K&N air filter. The kit includes the largest air filter possible for the application, much larger than the size restricted filter that came in the factory airbox. The K&N air filter's increased surface area provides less restriction and more airflow, while capturing and holding more dirt. Depending upon the application, the filter is either directly attached to the throttle body or indirectly attached with a flexible tube.
K&N uses a dynamometer to design its air intake kits to make the most horsepower possible. But their power figures aren't based on just one vehicle, but rather an average of runs by a number of vehicles. This means repeatable numbers and horsepower claims you can count on.
Every 57i Series Induction Kit comes complete with everything necessary for installation, including comprehensive installation instructions. All adapters are manufactured from high quality materials such as steel, aluminum, silicon or reinforced nylon, to ensure long life. The K&N filter can go up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is required. And the K&N air filter is guaranteed for one million miles.
