EPA requirements and consumer expectations have forced full-size truck manufacturers to squeeze more power and better fuel economy out of their engines. For example General Motors (GM) used the 4.3L 4300 Vortec V6 as its base engine for the full-size Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 for years. In 2013 this engine was rated at 195 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. However, for 2014 the same size 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 engine with new technologies such as direct injection, variable valve timing, and even active fuel management, allows the standard V6 to produce 285 horsepower and 305 lb-ft of torque. This puts the standard 2014 Silverado / Sierra EcoTec3 V6 engine’s performance on par with the 4.8L Vortec V8 engine of the 2013 Silverado and Sierra.
285 horsepower is pretty good for a base V6 engine, plus 2014 Chevy Silverado or 2014 GMC Sierra models equipped with the V6 engine cost a little less and get better gas mileage than V8 models. That’s what people call a win-win situation. That doesn’t mean though that a V8 powered 2014 Silverado or Sierra isn’t making more power than 2014 V6 models. That’s where a performance air intake system from Spectre Performance can lend a helping hand. By reducing air intake tract restriction and increasing the amount of available airflow, a Spectre Performance air intake system is able to improve performance, increase the rate of acceleration, and even add a growl under the hood when the accelerator is pressed.
Plus, like a V6 powered 2014 Silverado or Sierra, purchasing a Spectre Performance air intake system is going to leave a little money left in your wallet. Spectre Performance air intake systems are an excellent value costing about half the price of other intake systems on the market. Additionally, a Spectre Performance air intake system will help save time and money on future maintenance. A Spectre air intake comes equipped with a reusable High Performance Racing (HPR) air filter that can be cleaned when dirty. Spectre HPR conical air filters can be washed and reused by utilizing the Spectre Performance Accucharge cleaning kit, part number 884820.
Spectre Performance air intake systems use high-quality components throughout and are designed to increase horsepower, as well as torque output. The Spectre Performance 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 4.3L V6 and 2014 GMC Sierra 4.3L V6 performance intake system includes all necessary components and can be installed using basic hand tools in about 90-minutes in the comfort of a garage or in a driveway. Additionally, 2014 Silverado or Sierra V6 owners can rest assured knowing that Spectre Performance warrants its products to be free from workmanship and material defects with a limited 90 day warranty.
