K&N diesel air intake system, number 63-1568, includes a performance diesel air filter and a roto-molded air intake tubes for increased power without sacrificing drivability
2013-2016 Dodge Ram Cummins diesel trucks are equipped from the factory with restrictive disposable air filters housed in an innovative factory air filter box. Dodge Ram calls this new diesel air filter box technology “Ram Active Air” which is a dual-inlet type diesel air filter box with the ability to vary the source of incoming air. In normal driving conditions air is drawn from a protected source under the hood. As under hood temperatures rise, the Ram Active Air filter box switches to a sort of cold air intake system drawing air from directly behind the truck’s front grille. Ram developed this system to combat power loss in hot, dry, up-hill conditions when temperatures under the hood have been shown to climb to extreme levels.
By retaining the factory Ram Active Air filter box, 2013-2016 Dodge Ram Cummins diesel performance can be increased quickly while maintaining factory appearance
K&N Air Filters has stepped in with a K&N diesel air filter and roto-molded high-density polyethylene diesel air intake tube to improve 2013-2016 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 6.7-liter Cummins diesel performance over the factory design. This diesel air filter and diesel air intake tube is packed into an all-inclusive K&N diesel air intake system 63-1568. Extensive testing was performed, and each time it was apparent that the 2013-2016 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 6.7-liter Cummins diesel equipped trucks performed better, and without sacrificing drivability, by retaining the stock Ram Active Air filter box.
On the dyno, 63-1568 produced an estimated additional 14.65 horsepower at 2500 rpm and a massive 23.86 pound-feet of torque increase at 2122 rpm over the factory diesel air intake
Testing showed that the major points of Cummins 6.7L diesel performance restriction were eliminated by replacing the disposable diesel air filter with a K&N high-flow diesel air filter 33-5005, and by swapping the convoluted factory air intake tube with a new roto-molded air intake tube. K&N Air Filters was able to see a significant improvement in 2013-2016 Ram 2500 and Ram 3500 6.7-liter Cummins diesel performance with increased horsepower and torque output. On the dyno, 63-1568 produced an estimated additional 14.65 horsepower at 2500 rpm and a massive 23.86 pound-feet of torque increase at 2122 rpm over the factory diesel air intake system when installed on an otherwise stock 2013 Ram 2500 6.7L Turbo Diesel.
Testing was performed on K&N diesel air filter 33-5005 showing a 99.35% overall efficiency rating to guarantee high airflow without sacrificing diesel engine protection
K&N retained the stock diesel air filter box with Ram Active Air technology because it was evident that Dodge Ram engineers paid special attention to inlet air temperature as it travels into the 6.7-Liter Cummins Diesel engine. Cooler air promotes more efficient combustion and the ability of an engine to work efficiently is essential to maintaining peak diesel performance. The engine control unit (ECU) in a modern diesel pickup can adjust engine performance as air temperature increases forcing the engine to run more conservatively and make less power. This means diesel air filter and diesel air intake placement is important to assure proper flow, temperature, and quality of incoming air for peak diesel performance.
When K&N engineers design a diesel air filter much consideration is put into improving diesel performance without sacrificing engine protection with a K&N diesel filter. K&N diesel air filter 33-5005 is built to higher specifications than our standard automotive air filters. This K&N diesel air filter is made with 2-inch deep pleats for a large surface area and six layers of cotton to achieve high levels of filtration efficiency. K&N performs filtration efficiency testing following the internationally recognized ISO 5011 protocol to guarantee that a K&N diesel air filter will provide high airflow without sacrificing engine protection. K&N diesel air filter 33-5005 was shown to have a 99.35% overall efficiency rating.
Retaining the stock Dodge Ram Active Air filter box makes installation of K&N diesel air intake 63-1568 a breeze. With simple to follow instructions and no need to make any other modifications to the vehicle, you’ll quickly be back on the road with more horsepower and torque for hauling, towing, or every day driving.
