The AIRAID 253-314 cold air dam air intake system is designed to fit the 2008 and 2009 Pontiac G8. The system features cold air dam panels that protect the huge open-element air inlet and assists to supply a steady, free-flow of cooler outside air into the engine. The panels mount in the factory air box and integrate with any factory cold air inlet ducts that may be present and adds more cold air passages to the filter. The panels isolate the air filter from the hot air of the engine compartment by sealing to the underside of the hood with blade-style weatherstripping.
The intake system features an AIRAID 703-469 360° tapering universal air filter that is washable and reusable and less restrictive that common paper filters.
AIRAID also offers the 790-558 air filter cleaning kit that is specially formulated to clean and re-oil the AIRAID 703-469 air filter at the recommended interval of 30,000-50,000 miles, depending on driving conditions.
The air intake system can be easily installed with common hand tools and it is backed with an AIRAID exclusive No Hassle Lifetime Warranty.
