The K&N 57-1563 performance induction air intake features a non-metallic, rotationally molded tube and a heat shield to protect the filter.
In the first decade of the 21st century, driver preference for the traditional midsize SUV shifted away from off-roading and sport applications to the crossover style of mostly on-pavement chores. Yet Chrysler believed, and Jeep's reputation certainly supported, the need for a high-performance all-wheel-drive, mountain-climbing, towing-capable outdoorsman's type of SUV, or the owner's need to know the vehicle could do all that when called upon.
K&N's 99-5000 filter care service kit provides cleaning and oil recharger sprays to restore your filter to top efficiency.
From 2011, Chrysler offered a best-of-all-worlds SUV with multiple trim packages and drivetrains for its Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango. Buyers could build the car they wanted across a wide variety of styles and uses. When it came to power, these vehicles had two engines. The capable Pentastar V6 was the stock offering and for the hard-core SUV operator, it was the available 5.7L Hemi V8. The V8 has been praised as a strong all-rounder and includes the energy-saving Multiple Displacement System that shuts down four cylinders in low-power driving situations, and an automatic transmission with electronic range selection to manually limit the high gear operating range. Towing capacity is up to 7,400lb.
The V8 is the engine of choice for those in that latter performance-oriented group of owners, who may also need to ensure they can do that heavy tow or long-distance haul by adding some muscle. This can be accomplished on specific 2011-2014 Grand Cherokee and Durango models with the K&N 57-1563 performance induction air intake. An estimated 17hp and 15.45lb-ft of torque can be added, according to a dynamometer test with a stock 2011 Grand Cherokee in a third-gear run.
The Drycharger RF-1041DR air filter wrap is available in four colors to complete the service of your filter, then protect it in challenging driving conditions.
By installing the K&N 57-1563 intake system, the factory air intake and filter are replaced in the original air box space by an intake designed and engineered to smooth and straighten airflow to the throttle body. The 57-1563's intake tube is non-metallic and rotationally molded, reducing air temperature and improving engine sound. It accommodates the air temperature sensor and crank case vent hose from the OEM system. Topped off with K&N's oversized cone-shaped high-flow air filter with a heat shield, air path restriction is virtually eliminated. The Hemi V8 can inhale a larger amount of air with less effort, producing more usable power and acceleration throughout its RPM range.
K&N's distinctive black packaging stands out in retail environments, so finding the 57-1563 kit for your vehicle is quick and easy.
The 57-1563 system is straightforward: owners or their mechanics can do the installation in usually less than 90 minutes with readily available tools and the installation instructions that come with each kit. Once installed, the next time you will have to worry about the system is when it is time to clean the filter. The washable, reusable red cotton gauze air filter should be cleaned and re-oiled at about 100,000 miles, depending on driving conditions. The convenient and effective 90-5000 filter care service kit is available to complete the clean-up. K&N also offers four different colored filter wraps: black RF-1041DK, blue RF-1041DL, red RF-1041DR, and yellow RF-1041DY. The part number for the replacement air filter is RF-1041 and is backed by K&N's 10-Year/Million Mile Limited Warranty.
Use of the 57-1563 induction air intake could be the best of all worlds for keeping the Grand Cherokee and Durango Hemi V8 performing like a real SUV and showing up those current-day crossovers on and off-road.
