What's going on, guys? I'm Alex from americanmuscle.com. And this is my quick review and install of the K&N Series 63 AirCharger cold air intake fitting the 2015 and 2016 2.7-liter EcoBoost F-150. In this video, I'm gonna talk about the construction and materials used for this intake system as well as touching on the installation a little bit later in the video. But right off the bat, I'm gonna be giving this a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. You should have this on your truck in about one hour, tops.
And this intake is gonna be for the F-150 owner that's looking to clean up their engine bay as well as adding a little bit more of horsepower, torque, and, even in some instances, improving their fuel consumption. Now, I do wanna note right off the bat that you should be expecting single to high single-digit numbers. But the noise, throttle response, as well as fuel consumption improvement are definitely gonna be there.
Now, I do wanna note, because the F-150 EcoBoost platform has a speed density style mass airflow sensor, this is not going to require a custom tune. But down the road, if you're looking for some more power, I'd definitely suggest taking a look at it. Another great piece about this is that this is gonna be completely reusable. So down the road, if it gets dirty. You simply just need to wash and re-oil it, and you're good to go.
Now, right off the bat, guys, the quality here is gonna be top notch. And this is something that we're all accustomed to from K&N based on the polyethylene tubing right here, their heavy-duty couplers and reducer as well as their million-mile warranty filter that's known to filter out all types of contaminants from your motor.
So just to hit this home again, guys, one of the reasons why myself as well as many other consumers purchase the K&N system is because they're known for their reliability as well as having an oiled filter that can be rewashed and reused over time.
So diving into the pricing here, guys, we're gonna see that this AirCharger system is gonna fall in the neighborhood of right around $250, which, in my opinion, you're getting a huge bang for the buck here based on K&N's engineering as well as knowing that other intake systems can easily tip the scales at around $400 to $500 based on their construction and materials used.
Now, for the money, I can't stress it enough that you're definitely getting a huge bargain for this system based on K&N's reliability, their million-mile warranty, as well as knowing that you're gonna be increasing your throttle response, horsepower, and torque, and, even in some instances, pick up on fuel consumption.
So touching on the installation, again, guys, like I had said in the beginning of the video, this is gonna be a very easy one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter, and you should have this on your truck in about one to two hours with some basic hand tools like a socket set.
And this is definitely another perk for me when looking at a cold air intake system for my own truck as you are not gonna need to purchase any other type of supporting modifications for this system like a handheld custom tune. Now, I will add that it might be something you may wanna take a look at down the road if you're looking to make some serious horsepower
All right, guys, so just to wrap things up here, I really like this option from K&N, not only based on the fact that you're gonna increase your throttle response and even pick up a couple horsepower as well as some noise under the hood, but for the fact that this filter right here is gonna be reusable and re-washable over the years.
So that's my quick review and install for the K&N Series 63 AirCharger cold air intake system for 2.7-liter EcoBoost F-150 right here at americanmuscle.com.
