In 1964 the Ford Mustang ushered in the "pony car" class of American automobiles and over 50 years later, it’s still a leader in this category with powerful V6 and V8 engines and sleek retro aesthetics. Now in its 5th generation the Mustang burns rubber with a 5.0 liter V8 engine that produces over 400 break horsepower and yet, despite all those ponies breathing under the hood, it sips fuel at an EPA estimated 25 miles-per-gallon on the highway. The Mustang blends performance and style in a manner that only the original pony car can, and owners of 2011, 2012, 2013, or 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 liter can add blacked-out horsepower and styling with the K&N 71-3527 Blackhawk Induction™ air intake system.

The 71-3527 is expert engineered to and guaranteed to increase horsepower and acceleration as a simple bolt-on performance air intake system. It maintains all required factory connections and is simple to install using basic hand tools and the provided step-by-step instructions. The intake tube is a black powder coated aluminum tube and comes with a sleek welded K&N engraved plate on it. Also incorporated into this intake system is a heat shield that utilizes the factory fresh air scoop to further increase performance. The RU-3102HBK air filter on the system utilizes a washable and reusable Dryflow air filter media that does not require any oil. It will provide excellent air flow while without sacrificing filtration efficiency and can go for up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions.
