The Apollo Cold Air Induction System is designed to bring cooler air to your intake system. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen, and cooler engine air inlet temperatures result in more power. The Apollo system works on any vehicle because it features its own filter/housing unit. Simply remove the stock airbox and then connect the Apollo unit to the vehicles intake hose or air flow meter. K&N offers a range of adapters to facilitate this connection. Then connect the cold air hose to the Apollo and position the other end behind the grille. The Apollo unit and hose should be secured in position. In the event of inclement weather, reposition the cold air hose to prevent water intake.
The Apollos specially designed shape increases volumetric efficiency and provides the benefits of an open cone filter and standard airbox in one unit. Heat buildup is reduced, which keeps the intake charge cool. Smooth internal features minimize air turbulence and maximize airflow. The outer shell of the Apollo is made of a lightweight, durable material that helps keep the incoming air charge cool. It has a 70 mm base flange, however a selection of adapters is supplied with the Apollo, so all hoses that were connected to the OEM airbox can be attached to the Apollo unit. The unique Apollo K&N air filter features a large increase in filter area over the stock airbox filter, resulting in a huge increase in airflow and a greater capacity to capture and hold dirt. The filter is easily accessed by removing the 8 bolts and separating the housing and flange sections. 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.203.17Brand: K&N Part Number: RC-5052AS UPC: 024844113696

Installed the unit last weekend. The installation instructions could have been better. The bag of parts was not clearly labeled. Once that was straightened out, it was a simple installation. The product has made a difference in performance and sound.Was this review helpful for you?

Folks at CARiD were awesome as they price-matched this when I found it cheaper on another site. Arrived within a week and took me about 90 minutes to install from opening the box to starting the engine - more because of cleaning the engine area to install and not because of difficulty. Was super easy to install. Performance seems to have improved as engine seems to rev through the RPM's a little more freely/quickly and there is a noticeable volume increase when accelerating. All in all, great addition.Was this review helpful for you?

I only have one thong to say, WOW! What a difference it has made compared to the factory intake that came with my car. Not only is a greater volume of air going into the engine but it is cutting down my fuel cost. I am seeing about 15 to 23 horsepower difference and an increase in gas mileage from 26 MPG to 30/31 on the highway. I definitely recommend this part.Was this review helpful for you?

Just recently installed this on my '98 Eclipse and it not only looks great, but also, makes your engine sound better, and gives you more throttle response. Great buy.Was this review helpful for you?

K&N has always been the best in my opinion and with installing this one on my Solstice, my opinion still hasn't changed. I really like the look and style on this particular model as well as the ease of installation. Since installing I have gained around 5 1/4 more horsepower as well as almost 4 more mpg. Doesn't sound like much but you would be suprised at what that little bit would do for your car. You can tell the differece and soon as you hit the gas! Installation was a breeze! It will take you almost twice as long to get the stock air intake off as it will to install this. Such little work and at a decent price it's worth the investment. Over a period of time with the added mpg it will pay for itself.Was this review helpful for you?
