Exactly what I've come to expect from K N...
I began purchasing KandN CAI (Cold Air Intake) systems when I bought my 2014 Camaro SS. From the 1st street I drove down in that, I was sold. Needless to say, I sit here impressed with their BLACKHAWK CAI a 2018 Silverado Z71 4x4. Beautifully Rich sound, Noticeably increased HP and TQ. If you're questioning it with another product...DON'T. Unless, you want something less than...Helpful (1)

Sleek look and MPG!
Truck sounds like a truck now! Can’t wait to get my exhaust done. Gas mileage has improved about 1-2 mpg. Not much but hey it pays for itself with time and then the savings kick in. Responsiveness from throttle is definitely noticeable, and couldn’t be happier with it. Plus straight black, looks great, doesn’t stick out like the rest of the chrome finish pipes. Love it! Only issue I had was definitely the hose connectors, included are cheap plastic ones. Don’t listen to the instructions and use a wrench! They will snap. If you want some brass ones, I got them on amazon for about 6.50 each (5/8” to 1/4”).Helpful (0)

CAN'T BEAT A K N COLD AIR FILTER
I HAVE HAD MY BLACKHAWK OVER TWO(2) YEARS, AND I LIVE IN THE DESERT WITH NO PROBLEMS... NOW, I ALSO WENT TO THREE(3) IN. S/S DUAL EXHAUST, A JET PERFORMANCE THROTTLE BODY AND THEIR MAS, AND A THROTTLE COMMANDER SET ON SPORT #3, AND MY GMC ALL TERRAIN WOKE UP LIKE IT GAINED TWO(2) EXTRA CYLINDERS.. ONE DRAW BACK THOUGHT, EXPECT TO LOOSE SOME GAS MILEAGE BECAUSE IT HARD NOT TO GAS ON IT BECAUSE THE TRUCK SOUNDS SO GOOD!!!Helpful (0)

This Cold Air Intake is fantastic. The added growl from increased air flow brings the truck alive. The matte black coating matches the rest of the parts in the engine bay and comes with the coupling for use on 6.2L throttle body. Very easy to install, less than a half hour.Helpful (1)

You wouldn't think that swapping the stock intake for this blackhawk would cause such a sound but it does! 2018 Silverado sounds epic now. One note: Do not over tighten the hose nozzles! I broke one and had to order a new one. Hand tight is fine, don't use a wrench!Helpful (2)

I did ask a Question about 3 or 4 days ago and i'm still waiting for a answer.How do you clean this Blackhawk filter, I was told by a friend you don't use oil on it.
This is a dry filer, and you simply rinse the filter and let dry and reinstall.
I have this same Cold Air Intake, how do you clean this filter and i was told by a friend that you don't have to put a colt of oil on this
The K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake does not require a tune for installation and should not trigger a CEL following installation.
Cold air intakes can possibly void the factory warranty. We recommend checking with your dealership to confirm what will/will not void the warranty on the vehicle.
The K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake is made with an aluminum intake tube with a black powder coated finish and has a dry filter. The K&N Series 63 AirCharger Cold Air Intake is made with a black polyethylene intake tube and has an oiled filter.
Most times installing an intake will void the warranty yes. You will need to check with your dealership offering the warranty to confirm with them.
The K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake does not require a tune for installation. For optimal performance, we recommend a tune to get the most power out of the intake as safely possible.
