Fit and Finish
I bought the KandN system for one I live in California “CARB compliant”, and the second because of the name. Overall I am happy with the product so far but, was kind of disappointed with the oil breather connection. I trimmed my stock plastic overflow to proper length 11 inches and assembled according to the directions. When I was doing the final install I noticed the way the METAL hose clamp was either resting on the PLASTIC intake or was rubbing the fuel rail. So, in my mind all I can think of is it rubbing through at some point and costing me a bunch of money. I ended up going to my local parts house and buying 2 feet of 5/8 hose like came with the kit, I cut the stock plastic breather farther back about four inches from the oil filler and put the clamp on there (not touching anything now) then I went to Home Depot and purchased a FIP 1/4X1 inch nipple and a 1/4x1/4 FIP 90 both in brass, then I threaded the supplied 1/4 FIPX5/8 barb fitting into that connected the breather hose and now it looks professional and functional...IMO this should be supplied in the instructions and with the kit. I know when you buy aftermarket things for your vehicles there may be some things you always run into....but this is specifically for a RAM 1500 and it’s KandN guess maybe I expected more. This is just my opinion!Helpful (0)

When I think of KandN cold air intakes I think nice quality. Frankly I am disappointed with this product. First I had to go to the auto store and buy a rubber hose because they only supplied one size with the kit and it didn't fit both ends of their fitting. You have to cut your original plastic tube so once you do that you can't put the original back on unless you use the hose that you have to go buy or go to the dealer and replace the original plastic tube. Also this is all black which is what I wanted but the smaller hose clamps they provide are silver and are too big. With the price of this kit I would have thought I wouldn't have to buy anything and it would all fit good. Disappointed KandNHelpful (0)

Extremely easy install. Looks good. HP gain unknown but adding more performance upgrades soon so we'll see if this contributes to it. Worth the money and investment to your vehicle.Helpful (1)

Really simple install other than breather hose. Video American trucks provided mod didnt work but made my own and breather hose fit perfectly. Noticed some mpg gains but not much sound. Paired with carven exhaust and sounds perfect.Helpful (1)

First time buying one of these always just get the filter, glad I did! Install can be slightly difficult for the vertically challenged like myself so bring a ladder and drag your kid off of his game to help you out! Great first upgrade. Pros -Looks/Performance/Sound -Wife actually noticed the difference! Cons -None so far -Does not make it a HellcatHelpful (4)

First time ever really installing anything and with a video and a afternoon was able to easily install. Noticeable sound and improved mpg slightly. Looks super clean all black and highly reccomendedHelpful (2)
Why won't this work for a "lifted truck"?
This intake was not designed to work with body lifts as this may change the mounting points.
Will this fit my 2019 RAM 1500 Limited?
This will not fit New Body Style 2019 models, however it will fit 2019 Classic models.
The k n website says the 63 serie adds the max power, are you sure that the 77 is the best ? About the sound, which one will have the most effect ? Thanks
I don't believe we claim anywhere that the 77 series is the best. Sound-wise, the difference will likely be negligible.
Any one try installing this in a 2013 Ram 1500 Sport? In the past, parts that fit other 2013 Ram 1500's did not fit my truck and I just want to make sure before I purchase this part.
Two Part Question 1. Will it fit a 2018 Ram 1500 Express? 2. Will it change the sound coming from the engine? Thank you!
The K&N Blackhawk Cold Air Intake was designed to fit the 2009-2018 Dodge RAM with 5.7L engines. As long as you have the 5.7, you'll be good to. The addition of this cold air intake won't change the engine sound, but it'll probably add a sound. However, it's so negligible you probably won't notice it so I wouldn't expect anything significant on that front.
This intake is compatible with 2019 Ram 1500 Classic models.
