            K N Blackhawk

            This cold air intake is excellent value for the money. I saw immediate increase in horse power and I loved the new throaty sound I got! Very easy installation, took me about 20 minutes. I would highly recommend this product!

            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...

            As soon as I GOT MY BLACKHAWK COLD AIR INTAKE FOR SILVERADO 2017 IT MADE MY TRUCK COME TO LIFE AND SOUNDED LIKE A TRUCK. THE COST WAS WORTH IT.

            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”).

            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!!!

            Very Impressed

            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.

            Wicked Sound

            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!

            Awesomeness

            This installed quickly and painless. The video helped , took about 30 minutes. The entire system is solid and you can tell it’s made of quality material. The throaty sounds on acceleration are addictive ! Woke up the engine in terms of power and responsiveness . Did in junction with throttle body spacer as well. Highly recommend !

            Works-4-me...

            Had a snafu with one of the major parts and I was in the process of sending everything back to A.T. when I contacted KandN and they over-nighted the part to me. When I mean over-nighted, I live on the eastern part of the country, it was shipped from CA. that evening and I received it the next morning. Installation was straight forward and... I LIKE-IT, PERIOD...

            Woke up my truck

            I installed this on my 5.3 in less than an hour. I couldn't wait to get out on the road and feel the difference. I feel like I am driving a better truck. The added horsepower is definitley noticed!! I had already installed a flowmaster exhaust and the sound is quite different since I installed the cold air intake. This was absolutely a nice low cost upgrade to my truck.

            Great looking intake

            I've had this intake on my truck for about a year and six months it give the engine a deeper sound for sure I've had issues with going through the automatic car wash the water will soak through the filter throwing a check engine light it could be because the truck is level which lets the the car wash sprayer spray directly between the grill and hood into the filter kandn says they don't make a filter wrap for the filter unfortunately
