Q: Installing cold air intake - 2007 Jaguar XK

asked by on

I'd like to improve the performance of the car and get more horsepower, by getting the cold air intake. I'm just not sure whether the engine space would allow for that. I was thinking maybe to purchase the K & N intake replacement. What is your opinion on this and could you recommend the intake for this particular make and model?

K&N is a reputable manufacturer of this component (and there are others). Call or email them for specific part numbers for your vehicle.
