The fuel sipping 2014-2016 Ford Fusion SE 1.5L EcoBoost can receive improved performance from K&N Air Intake System, number 63-2588

The 2014-2016 Ford Fusion SE model is a step up from the base Ford Fusion S. The 2014-2016 Ford Fusion SE comes standard with a naturally aspirated 2.5L Duratec 4-cylinder engine. However, Ford offers an optional 1.5L EcoBoost L4 engine for Ford Fusion shoppers looking for a little more performance with the added benefit of more miles per gallon. Ford EcoBoost technology has managed to squeeze good power and excellent fuel economy out of surprisingly small engines. 2014-2016 Ford Fusion SE 1.5L EcoBoost owners can brag about 181 horsepower, 185 lb-ft of torque, and when equipped with the Auto Start-Stop feature an EPA estimated 37 highway MPG.

The 2014-2015 Ford Fusion SE can be equipped with an optional 1.5L EcoBoost turbocharged engine which focuses on maximizing power and fuel efficiency

While 181 horsepower from a 1.5L engine is very respectable, it's still a far cry from Ford's sportier 2.0L EcoBoost powered 2014-2016 Ford Fusion rated at 231 horsepower when running regular unleaded. Realizing the 2014-2016 Ford Fusion 1.5L EcoBoost could use a boost in power, K&N engineers decided to free up some horsepower by reducing restriction and turbulent airflow, while also maximizing the amount of air available to the 1.5L EcoBoost engine's turbocharger. By replacing the restrictive factory intake ducting and air filter box with a free-flowing, molded high-density polyethylene (HDPE), air intake tube and an oversized K&N high-flow air filter; K&N air intake system 63-2588 is able to minimize restriction, while also straightening, and increasing airflow to the engine. More air and less restriction means more usable power throughout the engine’s RPM range by allowing the turbocharger to work more efficiently.

K&N Air Intake System, number 63-2588, produced an estimated additional 8.41 horsepower at 5,063 RPM and 8.48 lb-ft of torque on an otherwise stock 2014 Ford Fusion SE 1.5L

K&N’s RU-4600 over-sized reusable air filter is fitted to the inlet of the K&N roto-molded air intake tube to provide superior airflow and superior performance without sacrificing engine protection. The filter is washable and reusable and can go up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions. K&N air intake 63-2588 for the 2014-2016 Ford Fusion SE 1.5L EcoBoost incorporates an application specific heat shield which serves to deflect engine heat away from incoming air. This helps to keep inlet air temperature (IAT) readings within factory specifications as well as promoting more efficient combustion.

Roto-molded air intake tubes, like the one used in the 2014-2015 Ford Fusion SE 1.5L EcoBoost intake system, allow K&N the most freedom of design and offer OE fit and finish

The K&N 63-2588 Performance Air Intake System produced respectable horsepower and torque gains considering the already impressive power coming from the small 1.5L EcoBoost L4. On the dyno, when installed on a 2014 Ford Fusion SE 1.5L, the K&N 63-2588 Performance Air Intake System produced an estimated additional 8.41 horsepower at 5063 rpm and an equally important 8.48 lb-ft of torque at 4826 rpm. It is said that torque is what gets you moving, and horsepower is what keeps you moving. Increases in torque will provide very noticeable improvements in acceleration and Ford EcoBoost engines tend to produce more torque than horsepower.

The 63-2588 performance intake system is an easy to install performance upgrade that can be installed in about 90 minutes or less using basic hand tools. By following K&N’s simple step-by-step instructions owners of 2014-2016 Ford Fusion SE 1.5L EcoBoost models can experience increased performance while still being able to brag about their car's fuel efficiency. The K&N 2014-2016 Ford Fusion SE 1.5L EcoBoost air intake system maintains all necessary factory connections and does not require any additional modifications to experience a boost in performance. K&N backs its air filters and air intake systems with a 10-year/million mile limited warranty so owners can rest assured that their intake system will probably outlast their car.

K&N Air Intake 63-2588 is guaranteed to increase horsepower and torque on the Ford Fusion EcoBoost powered models below:

2015 Ford Fusion 1.5L L4 F/I
2014 Ford Fusion 1.5L L4 F/I
