Add an Estimated 18 Horsepower to Your 2017 Ford F250 or F350 Super Duty with a K&N Air Intake

2017 Ford F250 Super Duty

The K&N air intake systen for 2017 F250 & F350 Super Duty adds power and increases response

The 2017 Ford F250 and F350 Super Duty fitted with the 6.2L V8 engine offer the most torque of any gasoline V8 in the full-size pickups segment over 8,500 lbs GVWR. This change for the 2017 model year was accomplished through revised tuning and modified camshafts. Torque is now increased to 430 lb-ft.

The 6.2L V8 was designed from the outset as a truck engine, so durability was key to the design. The engine features a deep-skirt cast iron block with cross-bolted main caps, two-valves per cylinder, SOHC aluminum heads with roller-rocker shafts, and two spark plugs per cylinder, as well as dual-equal variable cam timing. And while torque has been increased, horsepower is the same 385 HP as in previous years.

If you’re looking for a horsepower increase for your 2017 F250 or F350 Super Duty, look to K&N. The K&N 77-2588KTK air intake system adds 18.96 estimated horsepower at the wheels. That’s an instant increase in performance and throttle response.

Fresh air first enters a 7.5-inch tall RC-5179 K&N high-flow air filter positioned within a heat shield that installs into the space of the factory air box. The heat shield protects the cool incoming air from being affected by high underhood temperatures. The cooler the air is as it flows into the engine, the more power the engine can generate.

Much of the performance increase can be attributed to the oversized conical air filter manufactured from multiple layers of oiled cotton filter media. This filter media offers a greater surface area and thus less resistance than traditional filters.

The K&N air intake replaces the stock air box and includes a heat shield to keep intake temp down

Engine protection is provided by the cotton media, which filters out fine particles of dirt and dust that could damage your engine, to ensure a long engine life. Each design is verified through K&N’s in-house filtration testing lab, which adheres to ISO 5011 protocols, ensuring that K&N filters provide high airflow without risking engine protection.

Further, the K&N air intake tube significantly reduces restriction to incoming airflow over the stock item, as well as calms power-robbing turbulence. Air passes through an aerodynamically-verified black powdercoated mandrel-formed aluminum intake tube directly into the engine’s throttle body. The intake tube accommodates the factory mass air sensor, fuel pressure hose, and crankcase vent hose.

Best of all, the K&N 77-2588KTK can be installed in 90 minutes or less with simple hand tools like a ratchet set, a few screwdrivers, and a couple of wrenches. All tools required are listed in the clear, step-by-step photo-illustrated instructions specific to your car that come included in the package.

And once you’ve installed your K&N filter you’ve eliminated the need to buy another air filter for the life of your covered F250 or F350 Super Duty. Only a simple DIY service is required to maintain your K&N filter at peak performance.

At intervals of 100,000 miles (depending on your driving conditions) use the K&N recharger kit 99-5000 to quickly clean and refresh your K&N air filter, preparing it for another 100,000 miles of driving.
