K&N 63-2593 AirCharger High Performance Intake System for the 2015 or 2016 Ford F-150 2.7L EcoBoost

Thanks to some seriously advanced turbocharging technology, Ford engineers were able to squeeze a staggering 325-hp and 375 lb-ft of torque from the tiny 2.7L EcoBoost V6. This allows the 2015-2016 Ford F-150 2.7 EcoBoost to work like it's got a V8 under the hood, even towing up to 8,500 lbs. when properly equipped. But no matter how powerful that tiny little turbo-6 is, there's always room for improvement. And by simply opening up the restricted stock intake tract, the K&N 63-2593 AirCharger Performance Intake System is able to add an estimated 19-hp & 34 ft-lb of torque to the power tally, making your F-150 2.7L V6 EcoBoost more powerful than many V8's in its class.

Ford engineers were able to squeeze a staggering 325-hp and 375 lb-ft from the tiny F150 2.7L EcoBoost V6, but there's always room for improvement

The reason that a turbocharged engine is able to make such impressive power is a little thing called "Forced Induction". Every time the engine expels exhaust, those gasses spin a little turbine that forces air into the cylinders. This additional air is then mixed with fuel and detonated to make power. The problem is most factory intake systems (like the one installed on the Ford EcoBoost 2.7L) use different sized narrow intake tubes, with lots of bends and uneven surfaces on the inside. As the air flows into these restrictions, it becomes turbulent and the airflow going into the cylinders will be uneven. This causes the engine to produce less power than it actually could. The K&N 63-2593 AirCharger High Performance Intake System is engineered to eliminate these restrictions and straighten out the airflow path. So your 2015 or 2016 Ford F-150 2.7L EcoBoost engine can live up to its true potential.

To open up the airflow path, the K&N 63-2593 AirCharger Performance Intake replaces the narrow factory intake tubes, with a roto-molded high density polyethylene K&N intake tube that is wider, and has a smooth interior. This allows more air to flow into the system, and the smooth surface ensures that air rushes right to the cylinders, instead of swirling around all of those obstructions. The intake tube also includes a built-in fitting for the factory air temperature sensor, so you can install the entire system in about 90 minutes, without making any additional modifications.

Feeding this K&N air intake is a large conical K&N performance air filter, mounted behind a heat shield that fits in place of the stock air filter box lid. The heat shield helps keep the warm air inside the engine bay from entering the system, and the filter is positioned to collect cold air from outside the engine compartment (oxygen-rich cold air helps the engine to make more power during detonation). By delivering a higher volume of cold air through a low-restriction intake system, the EcoBoost turbos are able to spool-up faster, providing more power, and faster throttle response.

K&N installed a K&N 63-2593 AirCharger Performance Intake System on a stock 2015 Ford F-150 2.7L EcoBoost, and dyno testing revealed an estimated increase of 19.37 horsepower and 34.08 ft-lb of torque. That's a dramatic improvement over stock, but your individual results may vary, due to the mileage, modifications, and overall condition of your specific F-150 EcoBoost.

Besides improving the performance of your EcoBoost F-150, the K&N 63-Series AirCharger Performance Intake System will actually save you money in the long-run. Instead of spending $15-$25 every 10,000-15,000 miles to replace your OEM paper air filter, the reusable K&N performance air filter can go up to 100,000 miles before it needs to be cleaned (depending on driving conditions). And the oil-treated cotton gauze filter material is efficient at removing airborne contaminants, so your engine and turbos will be protected from dirt and dust. Plus, the entire system is backed by a 10-Year/million mile limited warranty.
