    Review & Installation Video

    Review & Install Video

    Hey, what's going on guys? Adam here with americanmuscle.com. Today, I'm bringing you a detailed review and install of the K&N Blackhawk cold air intake, available for all 2015 and newer 5-liter V8 F-150s. In this video, I'll be going over the functionality and expectations out of the K&N Blackhawk cold air intake, as well as its materials and construction. Toward the end of the video, I'll touch on the installation, which I'll tell you up front will be solid enough for any novice to take care of, which is why it gets a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. Let's jump right into it. The K&N Blackhawk cold air intake is gonna be for all 2015 and newer F-150 owners out there with a 5-liter V8 engine, looking to replace their factory air box with something of an overall improved airflow, while getting a very aggressive blacked-out look that does not require a tune. The Blackhawk system I have with me today from K&N offers a complete replacement for your factory system, while giving you an overall upgrade in almost every aspect. Of course, the filter from K&N is one of the most famous filters on the market, giving you high-quality materials, superior filtration. The system itself, with the intake tube, offers a free-flowing system over your factory option. Overall, together, offers a blacked-out look for a very aggressive under-the-hood appearance. Now, with all of that said, this one does also utilize the mass airflow instead of the speed density, so it's not gonna require a tune, saving your wallet from taking an extra beating. Now, with that said, I don't want you to think that this one is gonna make the world of difference when it comes to power and torque. Expect single-digit gains, a better throttle response slightly, as well as a slight improvement in fuel mileage, but also getting a very aggressive and attractive tone coming out of your engine bay which, of course, is always a plus. Now, another plus to picking up the Blackhawk system is that it is emissions friendly in all 50 states. If you are located in an emissions restrictive state like California, this one is gonna be street legal and not intended for off-road use only. That is always a plus when you're picking up something that will work with your vehicle, no matter where you are in the country. Speaking of materials and construction here, you can expect the filter to be a multi-layered design here that is specific to K&N's filters, which is what makes them so much better than some of the other options on the market. Now, with that said, expect a multi-layered cotton gauze sandwich routine to Epoxy-coated wire screens for filtration. They're also specially treated with oil that clumps up together in the cotton to really give it that enhanced filtration system, making it one of the best on the market. You'll also notice it has a very unique blacked-out look, which I mentioned in the beginning, this one giving it a very aggressive tone under your hood, which is always a plus. Now, another thing I wanna point out with the kit is the aluminum tubing. This one is gonna be a little bit different than some of the other polypropylene and the other plastic options on the market. This one being aluminum, being a perfect bend from K&N, offers a better airflow overall than your factory option, and of course, is also a blacked-out, very similar kit to the Series 77, which is also emissions friendly. Both of these kits are specifically designed to be 50-state legal, while giving you the performance that you want out of an aftermarket intake, especially from K&N. Now, as far as the pricing goes, if this does peak your interest, expect to be picking it up for just about $350 here, putting it right in the middle of the pack compared to some of the other options on the market. Now, with that said, if you are looking to maximize your performance gains with your V8, you might wanna check out some of the tune-required options to give you that extra horsepower gain, as opposed to the single-digit gains from the no-tune required options. Again, this one is gonna be similar to the Series 77, so if you're not really into the blacked-out look, check out that Series 77 for the polished option and the red filter. Shifting gears over to the installation portion, like I said in the beginning, this one is gonna be simple enough for any novice to take care of with a simple ratchet and socket set, and even a flat head screwdriver. Overall, 30 minutes tops to get the job done, one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. All it's really gonna entail is you using that flat head screwdriver to unclamp your factory system, unhook all the connections, and set that factory system aside, as well as the hardware. New hardware is provided for you in the kit from K&N, a very helpful addition to the kit here. Put everything back together in the reverse order with the aftermarket setup, clamping everything down, bolting it all down. Overall, like I said, 30 minutes tops, one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter, a very simple install job for anybody to do, one of the easiest job you can do to your engine, honestly. Just to wrap things up here, if you're the owner of a 2015 or newer F-150 with a 5-liter V8 engine, and you're looking for a way to completely replace your factory air box system for an overall improved airflow while getting a blacked-out aggression under the hood without requiring a tune, check out the K&N Blackhawk cold air intake, available right here at americanmuscle.com.

    A Powerful CAI in Basic Black. A darkly handsome design with a polished silver K&N badge for contrast, the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake gives your 2015-2019 F-150’s engine a touch of style – and a healthy dose of new power to boot. Freeing your engine to breathe deeply rather than stifle behind the restrictive stock intake, this CAI generates +11.4 hp and +11.8 ft-lbs of torque, making your truck more capable on the job, track, or trail. The vehicle’s fuel economy also typically improves by +1 to +2 mpg, and the throttle becomes more responsive as an added bonus.

    Handy No-Tune Install. Reusing the factory MAF, the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake requires no tune, and runs fine with the stock tune still on the ECU. It will also continue to function if you install most aftermarket tunes in order to carry out some other task with your F-150’s engine.

    Cleanable and Reusable Filter. Unless you’re driving in extremely dusty conditions such as off-roading in the desert, the washable and reusable filter element in the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake can usually run for 100,000 miles before it needs its first cleaning. The black synthetic fabric used in the 6-inch filter component is non-woven and oil-free, so no messy, difficult re-oiling is needed after cleaning.

    Metal Construction, Black Finish. The K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake is designed with a striking all-black look, including a black filter and textured black powder-coat on the heat shield and intake tube. Underneath this finish, premium materials are in use – steel for the heat shield, and aluminum for the intake tube. The tube not only has an exceptionally large diameter for a stronger indraft and air charge, but is also mandrel-bent so that the bends won’t constrict the inrush of cold, oxygen-rich air to the engine.

    Houses the Stock MAF. The MAF housing included in the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake is designed to fit the stock 85mm MAF, removing the need for a tune. There are also attachments for the EVAP vent hose and crank case vent hose.

    Takes Under 90 Minutes to Bolt On. Installing in under 1.5 hours, the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake bolts on as a direct fit replacement for the restrictive OE original. The stainless steel clamps needed are included, as is a full set of attachment hardware and all the instructions you need to complete fitment.

    Million-Mile Limited Warranty. K&N stands behind its products, including the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake, with a standard 1 million mile warranty.

    Street Legal in All 50 States. Bearing the CARB EO Number D-269-46, the K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake is 50-state legal only when installed in the 2015 model year of the Ford F-150. It is not CARB compliant if installed in a 2016-2019 F-150, and is only 49-state legal in such a case. If used in an area where CARB regulations apply and in the engine of a 2015 pickup, the CARB sticker needs to be stuck onto either the intake, or a flat surface close to the CAI where can be easily seen, to pass inspection.

    Application. This K&N Blackhawk Induction Cold Air Intake kit is specially designed to fit the 2015 to 2019 F-150's equipped with the Coyote 5.0L DOHC V8 engine. No computer retuning required. Note: Coupon codes cannot be applied to this product.

    Technical Note. The K&N Cold Air Intake is not designed for vehicles equipped with a Body Lift.

      OVERALL INCREASE IN GAS MILAGE

      Was looking to get better gas mileage and succeeded. I'm getting about 2 miles more per gallon in my 2016 F-150 4x4. 32 gal. tank, that means a lot especially in town driving. Throttle response is greatly improved.

      Great buy...However...

      Love the Cold Air Intake, great sound, and throttle response. However, I get a high pitched squeal when initially pushing the pedal which can be annoying at times. Followed directions and checked all of the connections to no avail. Took less than 30min to install.

      Breathing Better

      Not too shabby for a bolt on Intake. Obviously no tuning required. Got a little more power out of it along with the exhaust I added. Throttle response is definitely better than stock. I like the blacked out look so it was a perfect fit for what I'm attempting with my F-150.

      Took about 30 mins to install very easy. Not gonna notice much a gain without a tune but sounds great. I would recommend if your looking for more noise.

      Great for me

      This was very simple to install. I noticed slight throttle response, horse and torque you really won't know unless you dyno it. The sound, awesome! It's louder then I expected tho and you will hear it in the cab. If you don't want to hear it. Don't buy it. I'm just doing simple bolt ons. CAI, exhaust, and just stuff for looks so this was perfect for me.

      Blackhawk performance by K N

      I was a little skeptical at first for the price but after the 20 min to install it was almost instantaneous gratification. My 5.0 F150 has a nice growl and and a noticeable increase in power.

      K N Blackhawk CAI 2017 F150 5.0

      Installation was pretty straight fwd, took me about 30 minutes. Looks good and I can definitely feel more power especially at lower speeds. It does make more air intake noise. The only concern is the drone around mid-range when your in traffic. You here it more when the Transmission fails to down shift from 6th to 5th. I'll take the the additional noise to have the additional HP. Can't wait to install new cat-back system. Thank you AM.

      Nice intake

      I'm glad I went with this intake. Nice quality and looks good under the hood. Wish it snapped down a little tighter to the bottom of the old airbox. Definitely sounds great when you get on the gas. Fuel mileage a little better and a slight hp gain.

      Great Intake at a good price

      Installed this on a 2016 F 150 5.0 and was very pleased with the results. Easy install (no flash required). Fit and finish so good it looks like it was installed at the factory. Has a great sound and noticible power improvement within the stated RPM ranges. Very happy with the KandN (50) state cold air intake.
