    New K&N High-Flow Intake System Adds 17.72 Horsepower to the 2008-09 Corvette 6.2L

    The Chevrolet Corvette’s performance is legendary among enthusiasts and general consumers alike. As America’s premier sports coupe, the Corvette rivals cars that cost four times as much. This makes the Corvette an excellent buy, offering a lot of bang for the buck. A K&N air intake system is also legendary for offering an outstanding level of performance for the money. Offering a guaranteed horsepower gain, K&N’s air intake systems will make it seem like you have a different car.

    K&N’s 63-3073 for the 2008 and 2009 Corvette with a 6.2 liter V8 engine provides an incredible 17 horsepower increase at the rear wheels. K&N’s Research and Development Department tested a 2008 Chevrolet Corvette with a 6.2 liter V8 engine on our in-house dynamometer. Results showed an increase across the RPM range with a dramatic peak horsepower gain of 17.72 horsepower @ 4,750 RPM! K&N’s 63-3073 provides increased performance while maintaining that “O/E” look with a rotationally molded high-density polyethylene tube.

    K&N air intakes completely replace the restrictive factory air intake assembly with an aerodynamically engineered tube and an oversized air filter. K&N’s rotationally molded high-density polyethylene tubes offer the most flexibility in design and outstanding horsepower numbers. With a K&N performance air intake system, consumers can count on increased acceleration and horsepower whether winding along a lonely country road or passing cars on a highway.

    This air intake system uses a uniquely shaped carbon fiber high-flow air filter (RP-5161). This filter captures harmful particles, increases airflow, and also increases service life. This K&N air filter performs for up to 100,000 miles before service is required depending on driving conditions. The 63-3073 takes about 90 minutes or less to install, using simple hand tools, requires no cutting or drilling, and is covered by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty®.

    For increased protection and style, K&N offers a Drycharger® filter wrap number RP-5135DK that can be used in conjunction with the 63-3073 air intake. Drychargers® are made from a durable polyester material containing uniform micron openings which will stop small dirt particles and repel water; yet add little restriction to the airflow of the filter.

    The problem is that I can only afford K&N's 17 and not Chevrolet's 436.
