All-Black High Quality Intake.
A black filter, black heat shield, and black powder-coated intake tube combine to give the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake a sinisterly stylish look, set off by the single contrast of a polished K&N badge on the tubing. This distinctive appearance is paired with a guarantee – that the Blackhawk will produce real, testable gains in horsepower and torque (average +8 horsepower and a torque increase of +3 ft-lbs). This K&N CAI is a tough, reliable part you can count on, too – as shown by its million-mile warranty and filter that doesn’t need to be washed for 100,000 miles.
Usable with the OE Tune.
You can install the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake in your F-150’s 5.0L engine without changing the stock tune. The CAI works at full capacity with the OE tune still in place on the electronic control unit (ECU). Using aftermarket tunes won’t interfere with the Blackhawk’s functionality in most cases, but are not required in order to run it.
Big Oil-Free High-Flow Filter.
The large capacity air filter element of the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake measures 6” tall. Made out of non-woven synthetic media, it allows huge amounts of air through while stripping out contaminating particles. The fabric is oil-free, so when you wash the filter (every 100,000 miles approximately, depending on conditions) you can simply reinstall it afterward without trying to get precisely the right amount of oil on it. The air filter is designed for a lifetime service life.
Rust-Proof and Sturdy Manufacture.
Oxidation-proof aluminum is used for the intake tube of the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake, though it is coated in textured black powder-coat also to match the all-black look of the component. The air filter is made out of synthetic material and is 6” tall, with a 7.5” large end diameter. The CAI’s clamps are fabricated out of carbon steel, while the K&N nameplate is made from polished metal, engraved with the company name and welded securely onto the intake tube.
Made for Factory MAF Reuse.
The K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake is designed to mount the stock MAF sensor in an appropriately positioned housing. Other fittings include an EVAP hose and a crankcase hose attachment point so you can get it up and running easily.
Fast Install without Drilling, Cutting.
Installation of the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake takes 1.5 hours maximum, and often considerably less. Fitment is direct bolt-on using the stock attachment points, combined with clamps and brackets included with the part.
Carries Million-Mile Warranty.
A standard 1 million mile warranty applies to the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake.

The intake’s CARB EO Number is D-269-57. You can buy, own, and use this component with confidence regardless of where precisely in the USA you live.
