K&N Intake

When upgrading to a K&N performance air intake system, there’s no ambiguity. You’re guaranteed increased horsepower and torque. Their systems feature a low-restriction filter and custom-engineered tubing system. These combined provide a higher volume of air to your engine. As a result you can expect up to 50% more airflow than a stock system with a typical disposable paper air filter. More airflow to the throttle body results in more power to the drivetrain!
