The 2017 Ford Raptor 3.5L V6 features a twin-turbo, intercooled DOHC 24-valve paired with a 10-speed automatic. An extremely capable and formidable off-road vehicle, the Raptor has earned itself credibility in handling difficult terrain.
If you’re looking for an exciting power upgrade for your truck, you’ve come to the right place. K&N® has just launched the 57-2599 air intake system as a 50-state legal intake option—engineered specifically for 2017 Ford F150 Raptor 3.5L V6 (including turbo) models. The K&N® 57-2599 high-density polyethylene (HDPE) intake system offers an estimated power increase of 12.3-horsepower and 25 lb./ft. of torque*, exceptional engine protection, and improved engine sound on acceleration.
“Love it, was super easy to install and makes big difference around the 3-4 thousand range.” – Shawn from Canada [Part No. 57-2575]
WHY CHOOSE A K&N PERFORMANCE AIR INTAKE SYSTEM?
The 57-2599 is designed to help provide a smooth, low-restriction path for airflow to the engine. Your engine needs oxygen to create power; the cylinders in your vehicle’s engine need to have air to create the explosion that produces horsepower and torque. Allowing a higher volume of air into the cylinders allows the engine to burn fuel more efficiently during combustion—providing an increase in power.
“Great product. Very easy to install.” – Matthew from Tennessee [Part No. 57-3070]
HDPE INTAKE TUBE INCREASES AIRFLOW
The 57-2599 intake system features a free-flowing, high-density polyethylene intake tube, which is engineered to provide a smooth path for airflow and a higher volume of air to the engine. The 57-2599 also incorporates a steel heat shield, which helps protect the air filter and intake air from high temperatures within the engine bay.
“Excellent kit - car running much better with increased rev limits and nice inlet sounds. More than happy.” – Tim from the United Kingdom [Part No. 57-0664]
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HIGH-DENSITY POLYETHYLENE (HDPE) INTAKE TUBES?
High-density polyethylene (HDPE) has a very high strength-to-density ratio, as well as the ability to withstand extremely high temperatures—making it an excellent choice for the environment in the engine bay. HDPE can also be molded into custom shapes, allowing it to be adapted for specialized tubing designs.
IMPROVE ENGINE SOUND
Factory intake systems often feature intake tubing with tight bends, baffles, and other obstacles that can slow airflow and muffle engine noise. K&N intake systems are designed to give your engine a more satisfying growl on acceleration, but return to quiet once at speed.
HIGH-FLOW AIR FILTER™ OFFERS EXCEPTIONAL PROTECTION
Under normal circumstances, most automotive air filters demonstrate an inverse relationship between airflow and efficiency—the higher the airflow, the less efficient the air filter is at protecting the engine, and vice versa. The oiled design of K&N air filters assists in “absorbing” dirt particles—and in turn helps incorporate those particles into the filter surface itself, which helps maintain the filter’s efficiency and ability to flow air. When tiny particles are captured and saturated with oil, they in turn can become tacky, allowing them to capture other particles.
The High-Flow Air Filter™ included in the 57-2599 intake kit is oversized with a conical shape, providing a greater surface area and allowing for a service interval of up to 100,000 miles between cleanings (under normal highway driving conditions). High-Flow Air Filters feature an oiled, layered design—providing up to 50% more airflow than a traditional paper filter. When your filter does need to be cleaned, you can use the K&N Recharger® Kit (99-5000 or 99-5050) to quickly and easily restore your filter’s performance. Each K&N intake (and filter!) is designed to last for the life of your vehicle.
WHY IS HIGH AIRFLOW SO IMPORTANT?
Maintaining the proper air-to-fuel ratio (AFR) is critical for engine performance, and relates to the amount of air versus the amount of fuel used by an engine for combustion. A correct, stoichiometrically balanced AFR produces combustion with perfect efficiency, excluding other factors. For gasoline engines, the theoretically perfect chemical ratio is 14.7:1—14.7 parts air to one part fuel. In effect, this means that an engine requires almost fifteen times more air than fuel for efficient combustion—which emphasizes the importance of providing a high volume of air through an intake system.
The K&N 57-2599 intake system is engineered to incorporate factory mounting points and the factory mass air sensor. Installation can typically be completed in 90 minutes or less, and requires only simple hand tools. Detailed instructions are included in your kit.
Engineered to fit:
Each intake system comes with a 10-Year/Million Mile Limited Warranty. Furthermore, using a K&N replacement air intake system will not void your factory warranty; in the U.S., manufacturers must provide evidence that an aftermarket part is the cause of a necessary repair in order to void or deny warranty coverage. The Consumer Products Warranty Act of 1975 (also known as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act) protects consumers’ rights to their warranty coverage.
“Great product. My truck sounds better and it just looks cool.” – Josh from Virginia [Part No. 57-1511-2]
