AEM Filter Designed to Improve Power and Response in 2010-2017 Equinox & Terrain

AEM Dryflow Replacement Filters are designed to increase power without causing addtional engine wear

An AEM Dryflow replacement filter helps your Equinox or Terrain breathe better

General Motors produces a full line of crossovers and SUVs across its Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC brands. As can be expected, there are certain components that are shared across brands offering similar-sized vehicles.

This is the case with GM’s compact Sport Utility Vehicles, the Chevrolet Equinox and the GMC Terrain. From 2010 through 2017, despite the fact that several different engines have been available, if you own one equipped with a 2.4L, 3.0L, or 3.6L engine, they all utilize the same air filter. And fortunate for the owners of those vehicles, AEM manufactures the 28-20439 replacement filter for their vehicles that will both improve power and response as well as reduce the number of filters you need to purchase over the life of the vehicle.

The applications are:

2010 - 2017 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain equipped with a 182 horsepower GM Ecotec LEA 2.4L four cylinder engine. The engine features a DOHC aluminum cylinder head with continuously variable valve timing, aluminum pistons with jet-spray cooling, and direct fuel injection driven by a high-pressure mechanical pump.

2010 - 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain equipped with a 264 horsepower GM High Feature LF1 3.0L V6 engine. Both block and cylinder heads cast from aluminum. It features dual overhead camshafts with four valves per cylinder operated by variable valve timing, and direct fuel injection (also applies to those models fitted with the LFW flex-fuel version).

2013 - 2017 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain equipped with a 301 horsepower GM High Feature LFX 3.6 L V6 engine. The engine offers the same features as the LF1 with a new cylinder head design, larger intake valves, revised camshafts, new fuel pump and injectors, stronger and lighter weight connecting rods and across-the-board E85 capabilities.

AEM replacement air filters combine some of the best elements of cotton air filters into a next-generation Dryflow air filter. This new three-dimensional filtering medium is red in color.

The AEM 28-20439 uses both depth loading and structural screen wire to enhance airflow capabilities for better engine performance. The incremental airflow is designed to add power as the engine management system recognizes the increase in available air and adds incremental fuel, the result being a potential increase in power.

AEM Dryflow air filters are washable synthetic air filters designed to optimize air flow and performance without sacrificing filtration. AEM Dryflow filters use an innovative high-performance oil-free filtration material that allows easy cleaning, durable service, and excellent filtration.

The only maintenance required for your AEM 28-20439 replacement filter is a service easily completed on your own. At intervals of 50,000 miles (depending on your driving conditions) utilize a AEM air filter cleaning kit to clean and re-oil your air filter -- bringing it back to like-new condition and ready for another 50,000 miles of driving. Your one AEM air filter is designed to last for the lifetime of your vehicle, which AEM guarantees will last for the life of your vehicle.
