Trucks are meant to be powerful and sound like it. If you want to add horsepower and produce an impressive engine sound, K&N's Blackhawk Induction air intake system will get you there. They are available for select gas trucks, diesel trucks, SUVs, and muscle cars. K&N is the leader in this industry for a reason, and the Blackhawk intake is prime example.

The air intake features a black powder-coated metal intake tube with a welded K&N engraved plate. Made from lightweight aluminum, the tube cuts down on restrictions for a faster air flow by allowing air to travel with the least amount of resistance. The oversized, conical air filter allows for greater air intake, allowing for more air to reach the engine. K&N designs their intakes to be direct replacement systems, making for a quick installation. Everything you need to install is included, and the system uses factory mounting holes.

The K&N Blackhawk air intakes provide your vehicle with excellent airflow for more power and torque while protecting your engine. Get yours today and hear that engine roar!

I have a 2010 dodge ram 1500 hemi. Installation was very easy, hardest part was removing the o2 sensor from my factory intake. You have to be very careful not to break it. When i was first drove my truck i wasn't happy with it becasue my truck sounded horrible and actually had less power, but i didn't know was that it was to go through about 6 cycles (starting your truck) before your engines computer can adjust. My truck has more power and has a great aggressive and powerful sound. The Air Intake will help with fuel mileage if you don't have your foot to the floor all the time which is kinda hard to do because hearing your engine roar makes it so tempting. When you get the new system installed it makes your engine bay look way better.

The K&N Blackhawk Air Intake is well worth the money. Easy to install does create more horse power and torque and you will get better fuel mileage.

I suggest watching the video RealTruck.com has on youtube to help with installation.

Installation easy. I combined this with a throttle body and WOW. Sounds like a Hemi now. the increase of mileage, when I can drive like a small car driver is very noticeable. the increase at take off is better. this setup will pay for itself after a year or two with savings on gas. I also got a slightly better muffler. I really enjoy this truck Now. My daughter love the wow factory when I drive like a teen...
Impressive improvements

Upon opening the box, I was more than disappointed as the hardware bag had been cut open and several screws were missing. After a trip to the local big box store for replacement parts, installation was easy enough that I instructed my 10 yr old daughter to do most of the install. Now for the fun part... the first start of the engine with the intake installed. You can definitely tell a difference in the amount of air being pulled in by the intake as compared to the stock air box. Out for a test drive, I saw acceleration improvements and you can hear a deeper and loader growl while under higher power.
