More Horsepower Guaranteed for the 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL 3.6L V6

White jeep

Engineered specifically for 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL 3.6L V6 models, the K&N 71-1576 air intake system provides a guaranteed increase in horsepower and torque of approximately 9.1-horsepower and 10.4 lb.-ft*. The 71-1576 (part of the Blackhawk Induction™ series) includes a non-oiled synthetic DRYFLOW® filter, a black powder-coated aluminum intake tube, and steel heat shield, offering a guaranteed increase in horsepower and exceptional engine protection from contaminants.


If you want to give your Jeep industry-leading engine protection and an increase in power, check out the 71-1576 performance air intake system—specifically designed to fit in the engine bay of 2018 3.6L V6 Jeep Wranglers.


The 71-1576 system is designed to help keep engine air cooler (which can increase engine combustion efficiency), and provide a smooth, low-restriction path for airflow to the engine. Many stock intake systems have airflow-obstructing components that can create turbulence—and heat as a result—making engine combustion less efficient. By replacing the complete factory system with an aerodynamic tube and low-restriction filter, your engine will have access to a higher volume of cool air—giving you a guaranteed increase in horsepower and torque.

“Very easy to install; takes about an hour. definitely noticed a power improvement when towing my trailer. Well worth the money.” – Paul from Pennsylvania [Part No. 69-5321TS]

The 71-1576 includes a non-oiled synthetic DRYFLOW® filter


Typical factory air intake systems force air through a restrictive disposable paper air filter before the air travels through a complex system of tubing—which often has tight bends, baffles, and other elements that can cause swirling, turbulent air. Excess turbulence can cause the molecules within the air to collide, which creates heat—and an increase in temperature reduces the density of oxygen molecules in the air. Since engine combustion is most efficient in an oxygen-rich environment, keeping engine air cooler often significantly increases engine combustion efficiency.


The 71-1576 intake system features a powder-coated mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube, which is engineered to reduce turbulence in the air and help keep engine air cooler—and increase engine performance! A steel heat shield also helps protect the air filter and intake air from high engine temperatures.

“Right away I felt the difference. It’s something that can’t be explained in words—you MUST buy one to know what I’m talk about. I’m looking forward to buying one for my other truck. THANK YOU K&N.” – Jonathan from California [Part No. 77-3050KP]


The 71-1576 intake system—part of the Blackhawk Induction™ line—includes a DRYFLOW® synthetic air filter which never requires oiling. The DRYFLOW® filter media is composed of lofted synthetic material, which—much like High-Flow Air Filter™ media—provides depth loading properties. Each filter is designed to strike a desirable balance between airflow and efficiency, provide a high level of contaminant capture, and outperform typical disposable paper air filters in airflow. Because they do not have to be re-oiled, servicing DRYFLOW® air filters is typically a quick and easy process. Even better—you get a blacked-out, stylish appearance in your engine bay.

“Great buy. Before I got it I was skeptical about it. It makes the truck a little faster and definitely improves the sound when you get into the throttle. Would definitely recommend this product to anyone.” – Derek from Michigan [Part No. 77-3082KP]

The K&N 71-1576 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, and installation videos for many vehicles are available on the K&N website.

“Easy to install. Very clear step by step directions provided.” – Mike from California [Part No. 57-2530]


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.

“I absolutely love this product. Did not take too long to install and the performance was noticeable. Highly recommended and I will tell all my friends about it.” – Richard from California [Part No. 71-3070]


K&N performance air intake systems are protected by a guarantee—you will get an increase in horsepower and torque.


During dynamometer testing, a 2018 Jeep Wrangler 3.6L V6 with a factory air intake system was recorded at 205.6-hp at 5,400 RPM. After installation of 71-1576, the same vehicle was recorded at 214.7-hp at 5,400 RPM—an estimated increase of 9.1-horsepower. The torque also jumped from 201.8 lb.-ft. to 212.2 lb.-ft.—an estimated increase of 10.4 lb.-ft at 3,000 RPM.


Horsepower gains vary among products and applications, but each K&N performance air intake system is designed to increase airflow efficiency for specific vehicles and their engines. Each kit undergoes significant testing to help ensure that the filter and intake tube are engineered to deliver large increases in airflow and horsepower.
