For over 30 years the Ford F-150 has been the best-selling vehicle in the United States. The Ford Motor Company continues to stay ahead of its competition with continuous improvements and a new generation Ford 150 is debuted about every five years. This is impressive as even the Ford Mustang goes longer between major updates. Ford has released the thirteenth generation F-150 for the 2015 model year. The beauty of the 2015 Ford F-150 is skin deep, with all-aluminum body panels, as well as a new frame made of 77% high-strength steel. The aluminum and high-strength steel have helped the 2015 F-150 shed up to 750 lbs. Less weight means higher payload and towing capacities, more miles per gallon, and a better power to weight ratio. Performance minded drivers know that less weight and more power combine to increase the rate of acceleration.

K&N can help the lighter 2015 and 2016 Ford F-150 with a 5.0L V8 engine with a boost in horsepower and torque for improved towing performance and better acceleration. An air intake system, like one from K&N, is designed to increase power by significantly reducing air intake tract restriction and increasing the amount of air available to the engine. Reducing the amount of power wasted on drawing air into the engine can translate into more power where it counts; at the wheels. K&N has wasted no time in developing an air intake 77-2591KP for the 2015 and 2016 Ford F150 5.0L V8. K&N has focused on speed to market with its 2015 and 2016 Ford F150 5.0 L air intake systems, but due to K&N’s expertise in superior airflow and superior performance quality and performance does not suffer.

The K&N 2015 and 2016 Ford F-150 5.0L air intake system reduces restriction and increases airflow in two basic ways. First, the stock air filter box is a major point of restriction in most new cars or trucks, and K&N has replaced the 2015 and 2016 Ford F-150 5.0L air filter box with an open oversized K&N high-flow air filter. Due to the use of high-flow cotton air filter media a K&N clamp-on air filter can provide more than enough airflow. The over-sized and pleated design results in a large surface area which helps a K&N clamp-on air filter go up to 100,000 miles of typical highway driving before service is needed. When it does come time to service a K&N washable air filter, a K&N Recharger kit will make a K&N air filter like new.

A mandrel-bent aluminum air intake tube is the second way K&N air intake 77-2591KP improves power of 2015 and 2016 Ford F-150 5.0L models. By replacing the accordion flex hose used in the stock air intake system with a smooth walled and gently curved aluminum air intake tube the K&N 2015 and 2016 Ford F150 5.0L air intake system is able to reduce restriction and straighten airflow. Less turbulent airflow can result in more efficient combustion and increased power. An application specific air filter heat shield is included with the K&N 2015 Ford F-150 5.0L air intake and is intended to deflect engine heat away from the air filter promoting a cooler, denser, charge of incoming air.

All the features of the K&N 2015 and 2016 Ford F-150 5.0L air intake system are designed to increase real world horsepower and torque delivery. The improvements in power that come from installing K&N air intake 77-2591KP will be immediately evident along with the improved engine sound. However, to prove that a K&N air intake system is more than snake-oil, K&N performs in-house dynamometer testing to guarantee that K&N air intake systems will provide an increase in horsepower. By establishing base horsepower numbers on a 2015 and 2016 Ford F-150 5.0L before installing a K&N air intake, and then repeating the test after the installation K&N can prove the superior airflow and superior performance of its products. When installed on an otherwise stock 2015 and 2016 Ford F-150 5.0L, K&N air intake 77-2591KP produced an estimated gain of 13.86 horsepower at 4,553 RPM. Improvements in torque were also seen with the max estimated torque gain of 15.13 lb-ft occurring at 3,731 RPM. K&N is so confident in its cold air intake systems that it offers a K&N air intake Horsepower Guarantee.

In addition to a guaranteed increase in horsepower, K&N backs its air filters and air intake systems with a 10-year/million mile limited warranty. K&N is confident in its products because each one will undergo rigorous testing in both laboratory and real world situations.
