Performance Air Filter Systems

Introducing: K&N Generation II Fuel-Injection Performance Kit

Biography: Noticeably increases overall engine performance and throttle response by maximizing airflow through the air filter and the air inlet system. The Generation II setup also smooths the airflow and allows for an increase in the total airflow volume, which promotes engine efficiency. The Generation II is a complete composite replacement for the factory air filter assembly and positions the new, high-flow, washable K&N Filtercharger element in a near-OE location where it can gulp cool, fresh air. K&N's Generation II Fuel-Injection Performance Kit is 50-state legal and is currently offered for the '99-to-2000 Chevy Silverado and the GMC Sierra equipped with either a 4.8L or a 5.3L V-8 engine.

The Performance: Expect an increase of 18 hp and a 16-lb-ft improvement in torque along with basic improvements in the throttle response and the fuel mileage.

Produced By: K&N Engineering, Dept. OR, 1455 Citrus Ave., Riverside, CA 92507, (909) 684-9762,

Now Appearing: JET Performance Products' Power-Flo Intake

Biography: Boasting an increase in airflow of as much as 25 percent, the Power-Flo air-intake tube creates improved throttle response and fuel efficiency through the use of a low-restriction, washable, and reuseable air filter element and a metal air-intake tube with a smooth, airflow-enhancing interior surface.
