    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 vehicle’s 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 Apollo’s 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. 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.

    K&N® is the inventor and leading innovator of reusable cotton gauze filter technology for automotive applications. The first K&N filter was conceived for racing over 40 years ago and a performance enthusiast mindset continues today throughout all levels of the company. K&N is the sales and brand leader for performance filters, including an extensive line of factory replacement filters and performance air intake kits. The company actively promotes the environmental, economical and performance advantages of long-life reusable cotton gauze filters.

    Warranty Information

    Find out everything you need to know about the product warranty

    K & N O/E Replacement Air Filters and Air Intake Systems purchased from Authorized Dealers are backed by a Million Mile Limited Warranty when used primarily on paved roads and on vehicles for which they were designed. If one of these products ever fails to provide complete satisfaction, K&N will replace it.

    K&N Aftermarket Air Filters should be cleaned every 50,000 miles for normal highway use, more often in dusty conditions. Cleaning should be done with K&N cleaner and air filter oil (or comparable air filter cleaner and oil). Use of compressed air, or chemicals not specifically designed to clean and re-oil cotton air filters (i.e. gasoline, transmission fluid, motor oil, lightweight oil, or diesel fuel) will void the warranty. Any damaged, abused or modified K&N Air Filters will not be warranted.

    Any K&N product returned to K&N will need a Return Goods Authorization number and must be sent at customers' expense along with proof of purchase.

    Any defective K&N Air Filter properly returned to K&N will be replaced. K&N reserves the right to determine whether the terms of the warranty, set out above, have been properly complied with. In the event that the terms are not complied with, K&N shall be under no obligation to honor this warranty. K&N will not be responsible for any indirect, consequential, special, contingent, or other damages.

    We want to make sure that when you buy a K&N Lifetime Air Filter or Air Intake System, you can be confident your vehicle's warranty will not be impacted. We also want you to feel confident that even if you experience difficulties with a dealership repair department, we will step-in and resolve the issue, so you won't have to. Therefore, K & N makes the following Pledge: K&N pledges to their customers that they will not be taken advantage of and charged for a repair due to a manufacturer warranty denial blamed on the presence of a K&N product.

    Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act:
    Legally, a vehicle manufacturer cannot void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless they can prove that the aftermarket part caused or contributed to the failure in the vehicle (per the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act (15 U.S.C. 2302(C)) Learn More
