The Ford Edge is said to be one of the top choices for a midsize crossover SUV today. Reviews state the attractive exterior, smooth handling, and powerful V6 engine make this vehicle a popular choice for consumers.

While some drivers may be more interested in the appearances of the vehicle, the engine is what gives it purpose. When the buyer chooses the 3.5 liter or 3.7 liter V6 they may need a tad more power under the hood for towing, mountain driving, or a late-for-work scenario. But what if that's still not enough?

To meet these demands, K&N created the 77-2583KS air intake system. This performance air intake is a free-flowing mandrel-bent aluminum tube induction system, which is designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as it smoothens and straightens air flow. This allows the vehicle's engine to breathe easier than the OEM air box assembly. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine's RPM range.

The cone-shaped air filter (RF-1048 ) included in the kit is washable and reusable, which can save the driver money in the long run as you won't have to pay for a new disposable replacement OEM filter every few-thousand miles. Depending on your individual driving conditions, K&N cone shaped universal air filters can collect up to 100,000 miles of dirt and contaminants before a cleaning is required. This is due to K&N's depth loading technology which offers excellent protection for everyday driving needs and air flow needed for tower and torque.

Performance air intake 77-2583KS comes with a custom heat shield to help deflect heat from the engine especially during idle, and the silver powder coated aluminum tube is machined just for this specific application so you know it is going to fit.

K&N 77-2583KS includes step-by-step directions with detailed photos for easy installation. The majority of K&N's air intake systems take about 90 minutes to install and only require basic hand tools.

K&N Dyno testing shows an estimated gain of 9.1 horsepower at 4950 RPM and 9.5 lb./ft. of torque at 4270 RPM. An excellent jump in power for a simple bolt-on modification!

All of the components included with air intake 77-2583KS are covered under the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty and will not void vehicle manufacture warranties.
