K&N's 57-2569 rotationally molded polyethylene Intake System uses a Round Tapered Universal Air Filter (RF-1041). "This air intake replaces the restrictive stock air filter housing," said Swanson. "The heat shield isolates the filter element from engine heat. This results in a cooler air charge going into the engine."

It takes less than an hour to install this kit and the lifetime K&N Air Filter performs for up to 100,000 miles before service is required depending on driving conditions. This air intake system is street legal in all 50 US states for the 2006 Ford F150 pickup with 4.6L V8 engine.
