The 57 Series Generation II air intake, also referred to as an FIPK®, is K&N's ultimate performance product. These performance intakes are designed to increase power by as much as 10%. 57 Series FIPK's are CARB exempt, street legal in all 50 US states, come with K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty and are guaranteed to increase power. K&N air intake systems replace your vehicle's restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing. K&N intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as they smooth and straighten air flow. This translates into more power and torque for your vehicle. The air filters on these kits are washable and reusable. Most of our air intake systems are easy to install using tools commonly available (see installation instructions). [MORE]

Dear K&N:

I installed the Fuel Injection Performance Kit (K&N #57-2553) on my 2003 Ford Crown Vic.

Boy does it sound MEAN!  It'd be worth it just for the sound alone, but the improvement in the throttle response of the engine was what I was really looking for and it did not disappoint.  The engine's performance now seems so "effortless" it isn't even funny.

I am not sure about any gas mileage improvement as yet because I haven't measured it, but it's probably there because with the increased performance there's less need to be sticking my foot into it all the time.

One unexpected improvement was that the kit seems also to have improved the car's handling.  Don't ask me how....it sounds odd, I know, but perhaps with a rear wheel drive car like the Crown Vic it just gives you some added control.  Even my brother said he thought so, too.

Thanks a lot for a great product!

You guys should make mufflers.

K&N FIPK on a 2004 Crown Victoria Sport

Gentlemen: I installed a FIPK system on my 2004 Crown Vic LX Sport this AM.  I purchased this automobile new in May of 2004.  The stock dual mufflers were changed to 10" glasspacks the day of purchase.  This car now has 34,000 miles on it & runs much better than any of my previous Crown Vics (1993 & 1999).  I immediately noticed & felt a vast improvement in the acceleration of this car when the FIPK system was installed.  The car shows an improvement in acceleration while in OD at 70 + mph.  The system cannot be heard at normal driving speeds but when "putting your foot in it" the increased intake can be heard with the sound of the duals.  The owner of the Ford dealership, after driving my car, ordered a system for his Lincoln Town car.

Dear K&N,
This past month I purchased a replacement filter for my wife's 2003 Ford Escape and what a difference it made, power you can feel. The Escape now to me has better throttle response. On another note my 2000 Mustang GT was also greatly helped by the FIPK 57-2519-3 P/N. It too had better throttle response over the K&N filter replacement. When the replacement filter was dropped in the canister the car did better than the stock filter, but then I installed the FIPK and WOW!!! what a difference. The other positive was the detailed instruction that had picture after picture that showed every detail. My father and I installed the FIPK in about 90 minutes not rushing. I have purchased many things but not with instructions this simple. Thanks K&N.

PS My father was so impressed with the drop in filter in my wife's Escape that he had me go order a K&N replacement filter for his 1991 GMC. Another positive, my assigned POLICE car, a 1997 Crown Victoria, has a K&N drop in filter that I purchased on my own, it too made a difference.

Thanks again for your time and engineering. Job well done.
