The K&N 71-1542 Blackhawk Induction Air Intake System is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air intake system that is guaranteed to gain power. It replaces the restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing on some Dodge Challenger/Charger/Magnum and Chrysler 300/300C models. This low restriction air intake allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air than it would from the stock air intake. More air means more power and acceleration. This K&N Blackhawk Induction Air Intake System comes with black components including the K&N high-flow air filter and heat shield. The attractive textured black powder-coated tube features a welded, engraved K&N plate giving you a clean, high-performance look under the hood. The intake tube accommodates the factory inlet air temperature sensor and crank case vent hose. The oversized cone shaped air filter is made from an oil-free synthetic filter media that can be used for up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is needed depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install usually in 90 minutes or less using the existing factory mounting points using commonly available tools. Some K&N Blackhawk Induction Systems are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are 50 state legal.

Did exactly what it's supposed to do. Put on my '15 Chsrger Hemi & could instantly tell a difference. Well worth it.

The fit was tight (2016 Challenger RT), but it makes my engine come alive. I have seen an increase in my gas mileage of about 2mpg and I definitely notice the louder sound. The instructions are clear and easy to follow. Got it installed in less than 90 minutes.

Throttle response has increased immensely and I can definitely tell a difference in power. The tune I installed only made it work even better. I am really happy with this purchase.

I'm pleased with the product. It sounds great and acceleration is awesome. I wish ordering was a little easier. I receive gift cards from work for various things. I wanted to use those gift cards, but your order form will only allow for one form of payment. This was inconvenient for me. Giving an option for a second form of payment would improve service to your customers. Thank you.

Definitely added better throttle response on my Charger R/T, and I get about 14 miles to the gallon now, instead of 12 pre-install. All in all, good product, no whistling and can't complain about that warranty. Thanks

I have a 2012 Challenger RT. More than anything, my car now sounds more like a muscle car. When I first purchased my car, people wanted to hear the engine revved. Embarrassing, and it's too quiet. I didn't even hear you pull up. Yes the car did have that beefy sound even in the cabin, but outside, .. This system changed everything. The idle sound, the gradual acceleration sound and more so when reving the engine. It is still pleasantly stealthy, not obnoxiously loud, but it sounds more like a true muscle car should. I am also pleased with the overall improvement with the RT 's responsiveness. Be sure and get the air sensor all the way into the tube rubber grommet, if not , it will throw a code. It's a tight fit so push hard. The car corrected the code display on its own after about four 5 mile runs and stops without having someone else having to clear it. Love it. It's awesome.

I am very pleased with this after market purchase. You can feel the boost in horse power and torque. My Challenger R/T hums right along with a slight increase in volume. Easy to install and truly makes my sleigh more fun to drive....
