The K&N 71-2582 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 mass air sensor and filter minder. 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.

  Very good purchasing assistance, prompt delivery, great install information making for streamline project. Definately would do business again. Thanks.

  Had no problem installing this kit. I noticed the truck is a lot more snappier on the throttle. I have noticed a small fuel mileage increase as well. The engine sounded a bit more throatier too, but not so much as to make me dislike the extra noise. One issue I had with the kit which took me a month to realize - There is a small diameter steel line dead head with a black plastic cap (not sure what part of the engine this is connected to) that sticks up and touches the metal K&N enclosure. I''d park my truck and hear this horrible vibrating noise. After opening the hood, I realized it was the dead head pipe, and bent the K&N filter housing just slightly out of the way. I am also tempted to bend the dead head, but am worried about breaking it.

  I just bought a 2015 Ford F-250 FX4 King Ranch and wanted some better gas mileage (diesel). The instructions included were spot on for my make and model. I used a simple set of hand tools and nothing more. Installation took me about 2 hours. I had some rain come down so it could've taken me an hour to assemble and install. Great look under the hood. Tight fit but a good tight fit. After installation my gas mileage increased around 14 to 16 mpg give or take. It helps!! My gears shift more smooth especially the lower gears. I did notice a nice deep sound under the engine and through the exhaust. You will notice after the first start. Worth the money and time. Recommended 100%. Great piece of enginering.

  Very easy to install and gives the truck a better sound - with 440 horsepower and 860 lb-ft under the hood stock it is difficult to tell a difference in power with the addition of this unit, though based on the power curves for the 2012 Ford 6.7 I would expect a 2015 to be somewhere around 455 peak horsepower and close to 900 lb-ft of torque at the crankshaft with this intake.

  Just got it installed two weeks ago and very pleased!
John Georgetown, Texas
  Easy to install. Included pictures to help with the install actually helped. New sound of truck is much deeper and throatier. Need to pull fifth wheel first to see if power increase is noticed.
