Air intake system for 2011-2013 Dodge Charger, Challenger, and Chrysler 300C With 3.6 Liter V6

The K&N Performance Intake Kit installs easily to the inner fender of 2011 – 2014 V6-powered Dodge Charger, Challenger, and Chrysler 300C.

Most enthusiasts say that the 3.6 Pentastar V6 is, in every way, shape, and form, an improvement over the 3.5 V6 that it replaced. It delivers improved horsepower and torque as well as improved fuel economy over its predecessor. While impressive when introduced, horsepower of the V8 powered Dodges and Chrysler had climbed faster than a hot IPO, leaving the sixes in the dust. Some ground can be made up with a supercharger kit, but that's an outlay that runs to the thousands. Instead, you can improve the horsepower of your Pentastar V6 with a K&N 57-1564 Performance Intake Kit.

Adding power to your 2011 – 2014 Pentastar V6 can be accomplished in 90 minutes or less with just a few basic hand tools

The Pentastar is an all-new design, owing nothing to previous engines. It features chain-driven double-overhead camshafts (DOHC) and a high-pressure die-cast aluminum cylinder block in a 60-degree configuration. Cylinder heads are designed with optimized vale angles and high-flow intake and exhaust ports. In fact, the exhaust manifold is cast as part of the cylinder head. This design, combined with dual independent cam phasing, increases volumetric and combustion efficiency over the full speed and load range, without the need for premium fuel.

Despite all this optimization in the factory, there's still an opportunity to make a simple change that will increase horsepower, particularly in the intake system. A K&N intake is designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as it straightens air flow. This allows your Pentastar engine to inhale a larger amount of air than the factory air filter assembly. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine's RPM range.

And K&N has the data to back-up this claim. In dyno testing of a Stock 2011 Dodge Charger 3.6L V6 the replacement of the original equipment filter and intake with a K&N FIPK air intake system, part number 57-1564, yielded an estimated gain of 8.09 horsepower at 5231 rpm and 8.13 ft-lb of torque also at 5231 rpm.

The 57-1564 air intake comes with a chrome topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield that mounts onto the inner fender. This allows cooler, denser air outside air to be directed through a custom molded intake tube into the engine's throttle body for a guaranteed power gain. This air intake is relatively easy to install requiring only a few common hand tools.

The 57-1564 Intake System is guaranteed to increase horsepower on your 2011 – 2014 V6-powered Dodge Charger, Challenger, and Chrysler 300C.

K&N makes its air filters from several plies of oiled cotton filter media, rather than air flow-limiting paper used in many OEM and replacement filters. The oiled cotton construction not only increases air flow but also provides excellent filtration to ensure your Dodge's or Chrysler's long engine life. This has been established by K&N's in-house ISO 5011 filtration efficiency testing, which follows procedures set down by the International Standard Organization, ensuring that K&N replacement air filters provide excellent airflow without damaging engine wear.

The only maintenance required for a K&N air filter you can do yourself. When you hit intervals of 100,000 miles, under normal highway driving conditions, using a K&N Air Filter Cleaning Kit you can easily clean and re-oil your air filter, which brings it back to like-new performance. Your K&N Performance Intake System is designed to last for the life of your vehicle, which K&N guarantees will perform for up to 10 years or 1,000,000 miles without requiring replacement. For full details visit the K&N 10-Year/Million Mile Limited Warranty.

You can order the filter simply by clicking on the part number 57-1564 as well as order the Air Filter Cleaning Kit 99-5050.
