K&N air intake 57-2581 for the 2011-2014 Ford F150 5.0L V8 pickups

K&N air intake 57-2581 replaces factory components on 2011-2014 Ford F150 5.0L V8 pickups with a free-flowing roto-molded black HDPE air intake tube coupled to a high-flow K&N air filter

For the American muscle car enthusiast, the term “5-oh” recalls mental images of Fox Body Ford Mustangs produced by Ford from 1978 to 1993. While a 5.0-liter displacement V8 engine was found in several GM cars during that same era, Ford practically owns the rights to using 5.0 on the side of its vehicles. As a corporate engine the 302 cubic inch (5.0L) Windsor V8 also found its way into the best-selling Ford F150 pickup. As the saying goes, all good things must come to an end and the “5-oh” Windsor block was phased out in favor of the 4.6L Modular Ford V8. Yet another saying goes something like, “what goes around comes around.” For the 2011 model year Ford brought back the 5.0-liter V8 engine. This new Coyote V8 motor was highly advertised in the Ford Mustang, but managed to find its way into the Ford F150 despite Ford’s focus on the 3.5L Ecoboost V6.
