The K&N 71-1561 Blackhawk Induction Air Intake System is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air intake system that is guaranteed to gain power. It replaces your vehicle’s restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing. This low restriction air intake allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air than it would from the stock air intake. More air means more power and acceleration. This K&N Blackhawk Induction Air Intake System comes with black components including the K&N high-flow air filter and heat shield. The attractive textured black powder-coated finish tube features an engraved K&N plate welded on to which gives it a clean, high-performance look under the hood. The intake tube accommodates the factory air temperature sensor and crank case vent hose. The oversized cone shaped air filter is made from an oil-free synthetic filter media that can be used for up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is needed depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install usually in 90 minutes or less using the existing factory mounting points using commonly available tools. Some K&N Blackhawk Induction Systems are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are 50 state legal.

K&N 71-1561 Air Intake Product Reviews

My Hemi finally sounds like a Hemi with this K&N Blackhawk cold air intake. I noticed right away quicker throttle response and smoother power from the Hemi as it shifts through gears. On top of that it really looks great on my Black edition Hemi express. I highly recommend and would definitely buy again.

Product was easy to install and gave my truck a great sound. Only issue I had was with the plastic peice that the vent hose connects to. I followed the directions exactly when tightening and it snapped. Maybe don't say 2 full turns after hand tight. Granted, I should have known when it was tight enough.

Very pleased with my purchase of the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake for my 2015 Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi. I have gained around 7hp and roughly a 1 gallon mpg increase. I went with this Intake because of the oil free filter as I didn't want to mess with an oil filter, even though some of the oil CAI systems offered more horse power. For me it wasn't all about HP as my Hemi already has some good get up. I do notice the difference in torque and jump off the line. I have the 8 speed trans so some additional torque was much appreciated. Sounds great. Have to step on a gas a bit to really hear the deep throat sound it offers but I prefer that instead of hearing it while idling. Lastly, love the look of it in my all black Ram. Looks like it came stock on the truck. I do not have an exhaust and after this purchase don't really think I need one. Very happy with my purchase and I recommend this product to anyone looking for a CAI system.

I put this on my '16 Ram 1500 and I love it. Sounds slightly deeper and has a bit more snap in throttle response. It's no supercharger, but if you love what you drive, you put a K&N in it.

Easy to install. The only problem I had was 2 of the holes did not line up, but other than that I am very impressed and wow, what a difference !

Had 71-1561 installed on my brand new 2016 Ram Sport blacked out package w/hemi after having the truck only a week. Also had cat back system installed, so sound wise I don't hear the intake as much. Throttle response is crisp. Power wise I can't say how much this system helped having been still breaking in the motor so it's hard to compare. BUT I will say you will not find a better looking intake on the market for this truck. I pop the hood and it looks factory, it matches so well. Love the K&N plate on the intake tube. Had lots of compliments on it and I have no complaints at all. Thank you for making a beautiful looking intake that I know protects as well as ups the power of that sweet Hemi.
