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. This Blackhawk Induction System cannot be sold in California. It is not legal for use in California or other states adopting California emission standards. Check the K&N catalog or website for vehicle applications and specific CARB status for each vehicle and air intake.

Product Reviews

  Performance intake kit is very nice. I broke the npt fitting and called K&N and the young lady on the phone was great. She made me feel better about what I had done and sent me a new one. I'm now a customer for life. Thanks.

  As usual, this BlackHawk CAI unit went in smoothly and looks like a factory option. Nice little growl when you deeply accelerate and feels a bit more responsive to boot. I have always used K&N filters in my cars and CAI units in all of my Trucks and Hemi Cars. I am a K&N advocate forever. Thanks for making such a fine product with the DIY Guy in mind.

  Install was stupid easy other than the damn crankshaft hose. Took me a heat gun burnt fingers and a lot of excessive cursing but it worked. Looks and sounds great on my truck especially with the all black package. Would buy again and again and again

  Installed my Blackhawk Series air intake in approximately 30 minutes. Easy to do. Looks great, engine sounds great! Showed out of stock but arrived 4 days later! Gained an honest 1.5 mpg overall on my 2014 Ram 1500!

  The customer service dept rocks! I had the misfortune of breaking a vent barb in the intake tube of the Blackhawk kit for my 2014 Ram during the install of the product. I contacted K&N the next day 'cause I freaked because I thought $350 was down the drain. Wwell thank God for their customer service and true business practice where all they asked was a picture of the broken vent barb and intake tube in which the plastic was stuck where I could not get out for the life of me. They easily sent me replacement parts in the mail yesterday. Now that is true customer service you do not see as much anymore more with companies!! Thanks again K&N. Loyal Customer for Life!
