When it comes to diesel pickup trucks, the name of the game is torque. The more torque your truck has, the more you can easily carry and tow. Ford Powerstroke turbo-diesel motors are no slouch in this department. The 6.7 liter Powerstroke that Ford introduced in 2011 produces an astounding 800 pound-feet of torque to the flywheel. That's some serious power! These big bad diesels need a lot of air to make this power and now, owners of 2011-2013 Ford F250, F350, F450 and F550 Super Duty 6.7 liter diesels can help their trucks breathe easier and gain guaranteed horsepower and torque with the K&N 71-2582 Blackhawk Induction™ performance air intake system.

K&N Air Intake System for Ford F250, F350, F450 and F550 Diesel Trucks
The 71-2582 Blackhawk Induction system utilizes an aluminum intake tube to help minimize restriction in the air intake pathway and provide a more aggressive engine sound. A black powder coating finish is applied to the tube for a sleek look under the hood and it comes with a welded K&N engraved plate for a bit of flash. The tube also accommodates the factory filter minder gauge. A heat shield is used on the 71-2582 air intake. It includes a lid to further isolate the incoming air from radiant heat under the hood. A K&N RU-5177HBK black conical air filter is equipped on the end of the 71-2582. It utilizes a Dryflow synthetic filter medium for excellent air filtration and air flow rates. The filter is also washable and reusable and can go for up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions.
