Hello, Does Anybody Know Where I Can Purchase A New Air Filter For My Nitro Instead Of At The Dealership? They Want $41.00 For The Stock Filter!!! I Would Like To Purchase Only A Stock Filter At This Time. I Know That K&n Filters Has One And Some Other Company That I Can't Remember Right Now, Has A Lifetime Warranty On Their Air Filter For The Nitro. I Have The 3.7L V-6 Motor.

I Currently Have Around 22,050 Miles On My Nitro And I Live Where There Are Gravel/dirt Roads That I Have To Travel On. Just Wondering About A Plain Ol' Cheap Filter, Maybe Fram Or Stp Or Even Supertech Or Whatever. Thanks For Your Time........

My Apologies...............

Hello Bwoody,

Sorry That I Missed Out On Buying A K&n Air Filter From You For My Dodge Slt 3.7l V-6.

In The Future, I May Be Interested In Your Stage 1 Chip. Do You Know If It Will Affect My Factory Warranty? Thanks...

k&n filters ar scary

i think one is risking sever engine damage useing any air filter that is cloth and mesh soaked in a lite oil.oilbath air cleaners wher obsolite years ago. any use on dirt roads without a paper filter of oem spec is un wise, in my experianc, have bin a meckanic for 35years and experianced many engines dieing young due to micky mouse air cleaners. cliff

i installed a k & n air filter on my nitro and to tell the truth, i don't feel a difference in the ride, the gas mileage, performance or whatever. i may just be one in a billion that the results may never happen. wish that there was some kind of meter or scale that could be put on the nitro to let me know if a difference is really happening or not. like i have said in the past, the flowmaster muffler that i got installed on my nitro is the best thing that has been added so far for the performance. later.

The performance increase that people refer to is not from changing a filter but to replace the original factory air box assembly with a K&N Cold Air Intake system. This system not only provides better air flow by using a low resistance air filter but it removes some of the restrictions that the OEM system has in flow and channels a cooler air to the intake providing a better combustion.

At least that is the story. Your results may vary, offer void where prohibited. :)

:D least thing i can say is that i have a lifetime {1,000,000 miles} k & n air filter in my nitro to go along with the lifetime powertrain warranty. still searching for improvements but at a slower pace. in a few days i will be getting two loud air horns installed for my peace of mind. i know this won't help the performance or looks. guess i should have gone with the cold air intake system, never too late but for my current problem i will be dealing with a mega ton of dust on my rides to work and to home. later people!

2. COLD AIR INTAKE KITS.
These kits provide noticeable horsepower
and torque gains under varying atmospheric
conditions. With an aggressive sound, these
intakes provide performance you can hear
and feel.
Cold Air Intake Kits include all
necessary mounting hardware and a pre-oiled
washable and reusable filter and are emissions
legal in all 50 states.

A CAI kit is shown in the new 2009 NITRO Accessory Book from Chrysler. Ask your dealer on it's price, (to install?) if interestered. Report back here with part # and price if you do. THANKS! We would all like to know more.
