The Ram 3500 and Ram 2500 are two standouts in the utility and pickup truck world. They have been used in many utility positions where power, reliability, and cargo capacity are necessary. At the heart of these workhorses is the Cummins turbo-diesel engine, which provides excellent towing capacity along with 350 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque at the crank.

This kind of performance is excellent but that doesn't mean there isn't room for improvement. This is where the K&N 63-1562 performance air intake system comes in. It is designed to open the air intake pathways of Ram diesel trucks and allow them to breathe more easily. This leads to better horsepower and torque and an engine that roars.

The 63-1562 intake system improves performance by an estimated additional 8.2 horsepower and 14.76 lb-ft of torque to the wheels in tests on a 2011 Dodge Ram 2500 with 6.7 liter engine at 2919 RMP. The oversized K&N air filter on the air intake is washable and reusable. It has 6 layers of oiled cotton gauze for the outstanding filtration a diesel engine needs. The filter is covered and protected by an enclosed airbox and snorkel for bringing in lower outside air temperatures. Since this era of Ram can have two different bumpers depending on year and model the scoop includes a 1.5” section that can be cut out so that the snorkel will align properly with either bumper.

The 63-1562 air intake system comes with instructions and all of the hardware necessary for installation. The instructions have pictures and detailed steps making installation simple and straightforward. Additionally this air intake is covered by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty.

K&N has been creating air filters for more than 40 years. K&N air intake systems still follow the same basic idea. If clean filtered air flows more easily into the engine, the engine will make more power to the wheels. With meticulous detail-oriented design, constant testing and the history to back it up, K&N air intake systems deliver power with confidence and reliability.

The 63-1562 air intake system fits the following Ram diesel pickup trucks:

2012 Dodge Ram 3500 Pickup 6.7L L6 Diesel
2012 Dodge Ram 2500 Pickup 6.7L L6 Diesel
