Product Description

Boost the performance and horsepower of your 3.8L V6 Pontiac Grand Prix, Chevrolet Monte Carlo or Chevrolet Impala with the K&N 57-3045 FIPK Air Intake Kit. K&N Generation II Filter Injection Performance Kits (FIPKs) are built for many different vehicles and represent a dramatic improvement over a K&N Drop-in replacement filter alone; they use only non-metallic rotationally molded tubes that can keep air temperature down and decrease intake sound over a metal tube. K&N Air Intake Kits virtually eliminate air path restriction by replacing the air filter and the entire air path to the engine. Also known as a CAI or cold air intake the FIPK's aerodynamically engineered tube drives a massive amount of air into an engine, which translates into HORSEPOWER.

K&N starts with the largest conical shaped high-flow air filter they can fit into the engine compartment while using factory holes and mounting points. This extra filter size provides even more airflow at lower restriction than a standard K&N Drop-in replacement filter that is limited to the size of the factory air box. The oversized air filter also captures and holds more dirt increasing the service life before a cleaning is required (up to 100,000 miles). When possible, the filter is isolated from high engine temperature by a heat shield designed to lower the temperature of the air entering the engine, which increases horsepower. Next they attach the filter to a rotationally molded tube made from interlaced High Density Polyethylene (HDPE). This process allows us to precisely shape the tube to reduce turbulence and accelerate airflow into the engine. This is why some of our tubes have unique shapes that are specifically engineered for each application. Finally the tube is connected to the engine with adapters made from high strength materials such as silicone and reinforced nylon and ensures long life. Put all this together and you have the best high-flow intake system available today.

Before I installed it I made a 48 mile highway drive to see a friend doing 70 mph. Once there, I topped off the fuel and calculated my mpg, which was a little over 28. I put this kit on my 2001 Grand Prix GT 2 weeks ago and wow!!! I did the exact same thing. Not only did I notice the increase in power but my mpg was an incredible 33 mpg (I checked my calculations several times). When I accelerate it sounds like an animal. I LOVE IT!!! I do take very good care of my car. I plan on doing more upgrades.

This CAI is awesome. Really brings out the sound of the supercharger and brings the car to life. Would recommend to everyone who wants to get a CAI for their gtp

Very simple and straight forward with installation, step-by-step instructions. Great Product. Looks great and adds a slightly deeper sound in mid range RPM's. The only bad thing is there's not much of a noticeable power gain. 13.4hp? I doubt that much. Still runs great though.
amazing performance product

I just got this air intake kit installed in my car and by far the best thing i ever got. it made the car sound like a v8 at high rpm but also with dynomax catback system. You can feel the performance increase right away. It was shipped fast, easy to install overall i am very happy with this product. Its a must have in any grand prix.
Not Too Bad.

I was very excited when I purchased this. I'm pleased with the performance gain but I'm a little disappointed in the way this thing was designed. It doesn't fit on the fender apron all the way and it leaves a huge gap for warm engine compartment air to get sucked in. Not a HUGE deal but I thought the intent of a "cold air" intake was just that. The filter that comes with it is so big that looks like it's crammed into the corner, and that's because it is. All in all it could have been designed a little better but I guess I'll fab something up for it to make it look less like an after thought. Performance is great, design isn't the best.

Put this on my 2001 GTP. Sounds great with the supercharger. Looks great when you pop the hood. And you can immediately tell the gain in Hp when you take it for the test drive after you put it on. Also noticed an improvement on gas mileage. If you are looking for an intake for your car, this is it.
