I hate to be the shatterer of dreams, but a filter on a stick pulling air from the hot engine bay isn't going to give you more horsepower.


Just please don't stick SS badges on it like that one guy did a few years ago...

I do wonder if the Camaro and Colorado have garnered enough aftermarket support for the 3.6 that could translate to the Traverse? Tuners, power adders, etc.

I was thinking the same for the air filter. Maybe an outside air snorkel would have been very cool on a Traverse. Lol

Thanks for great comments. I went from single exhaust LT to custom dual exhaust and I replaced my stock rear valance with GM dual exhaust valance. Custom drilled KMC 705 Burst 20” drilled wheels. Custom Air Intake. Jet Performance 69180 Powr-Flo Mass Air Sensor. So yeah I know I’m pulling more hp than the 2019/2020 310 based hp traverse. I really ❤️the lines of the new 2018-2020 Traverse. Looks like a chopped top Tahoe. But I also love what I created with my 2014 basic traverse. We’ll use to be basic. Like I’ve always say. If it’s stock, It’s simple😀🤣. As to the cold air comment below. Say that to K&N who’s been in business well over 50 years. Say that to Mangnaflow, woman owned Borla exhaust, etc. The car aftermarket is pulling as of Sep 10, 2019 (AmericaNews revenue of Automotive Aftermarket crossed $990 billion in the year 2017. SEMA is in Vegas every year, Maybe I’ll see ya there......

Got some pics of the exhaust? If I had the budget I'd be looking to replicate the factory dual exhaust, at least with the single it's pretty well hidden so there's not an ugly rusty muffler exposed.

Yes when I was 16 and put my first K&N in a 135hp Firebird I too swore I got 20% more horsepower like they advertised. Then I started modding and racing cars and picked up a think or two along the way of building a 650hp all motor LS in the Trans Am.

I guarantee if you put it on a dyno you will be lucky to make 5 more at the wheels with basically a couple intake mods and a dual exhaust. GM rated it at a whole 8 more hp with a factory dual system. You still have the stock cats, manifolds and the U bend in the exhaust. Your intake is pulling hot air out of the engine bay, it is not giving you any extra power. Hook up a data logging program - I wouldn't be surprised if you're getting several degrees of knock retard at wide open from the high IATs, between that and messing with the MAF. Changing the MAF without tuning for it will lean the car out further and is never a good idea.
