    Review & Install Video

    Hey everybody, I'm Justin with americanmuscle.com. This is my breakdown and dyno test of the K&N Blackhawk cold air intake system available for your 2011 through 2014 Mustang GT. K&N is without a doubt one of the biggest and most recognizable names in the automotive after-market world and for good reason. They pretty much invented the cotton air filter back in the '60s, and to the benefit of hot rodders everywhere have been innovating the market ever since. The Blackhawk is one of many different offerings from K&N for your Coyote powered GT and is going to come in right in the middle of the price range as far as after-market intakes are concerned. If you haven't been able to tell by now, the Blackhawk gets its name thanks to its very stealthy all-black construction that a lot of us Mustang owners find appealing. When I say black, I mean it. Everything on this intake has been completely blacked out, even down to the hose clamps themselves. Taking a closer look at some of the components of the Blackhawk here, you'll notice this powder-coated black aluminum tube, of course with the K&N logo showing through; the black dry filter, which is washable and reusable so it's going to save you some money in the long run; the plastic heat shield here; and of course all the couplers and hardware necessary to complete the kit. The K&N is a no-tune-required intake thanks to the size of that mass air flow housing. Therefore, you do have the luxury of running this intake either with or without a custom tune and still picking up some power. Ultimately, that's what running a cold air is all about. Sure, it's going to look good under the hood, but we want to see just how much power you can expect out of this intake. First, let's talk about getting it installed. Tackling a cold air install on your Mustang is definitely Wrenching 101 and can be easily accomplished in the driveway using some basic hand tools in an hour or less. Guys, don't forget, in addition to the manufacturer's install instructions included with the intake, you can also find detailed install instructions on the product page at americanmuscle.com. As always, at the end of the day if you have any more questions, feel free to give us a call. We already grabbed our baseline run using our automatic 2011 GT behind me. Now with the intake installed, it's time to get down to business. Even though I told you guys this is a no-tune-required intake, we also went ahead and uploaded our tune here to really maximize the potential of the K&N. The tune's going to optimize both our cam and spark timing, make adjustments to our drive by wire calibrations, giving you better driveability in the process, and ultimately squeeze every ounce of power out of our setup by really nailing those air-fuel ratios. With everything in place, let's make another hit here on the Dynojet and see how the K&N performs. Our baseline run using our automatic 2011 GT gave us 358 horsepower and 343 pound-feet of torque. With the K&N, the car's now making 375 horsepower and 358 pound-feet of torque, which makes for a peak gain of 17 horsepower over those baseline numbers and gains of as much as 25 horsepower and 26 pound-feet of torque throughout the curve. To wrap things up here, the Blackhawk intake from K&N is a great option for you Coyote owners out there who are a big fan of the all-black styling and, as we just witnessed, will provide some pretty solid gains. Be sure to check out the full lineup of K&N intakes for your Mustang here at americanmuscle.com.

    Improves Horsepower And Torque. The K&N Blackhawk Induction Cold Air Intake completely replaces your Coyote powered GT Mustangs restrictive stock air box and paper filter element with a high flow K&N filter assembly and a free-flowing aluminum intake tube for a noticeable increase in horsepower and acceleration all while still providing excellent filtration. Power gains of 25 horsepower and 26 ft/lb torque have been seen at the rear wheels.

    No Tune Required. Unlike other Cold Air Intakes on the market for the 5.0L V8 Mustangs this K&N Blackhawk Induction CAI does not require a computer re-tune. The engineers at K&N really did their homework to improve your pony's power using the stock tune.

    Superior Filtration. The supplied K&N Filter provides superior air filtration and successfully filters out harmful contaminants with its dry-flow non-woven synthetic material. The dry-flow media is combined with epoxy-coated aluminum mesh on both sides for extreme durability. The filter does not require any oil and is ready to be installed right out of the box.

    Washable, Reusable Filter. K&N design their high flow air filters to be reusable. That means there is no need to buy a new filter every few thousand miles. You can just wash the filter with K&N Synthetic Air Filter Cleaner (sold separately) and then simply rinse with water. Let it dry and you're back in business.

    Straight Forward Installation. The K&N Blackhawk Induction Cold Air Intake Kit is designed to install easily with just basic hand tools. No extra modifications or special tools are required for proper installation. All necessary parts and instructions are included.

    Application. This K&N Blackhawk Induction Cold Air Intake kit is specially designed to fit the 2011 to 2014 GT Mustang's equipped with the Coyote 5.0L DOHC V8 engine. No computer retuning required.

    Technical Note. This K&N Cold Air Intake is not legal for use in California or other states adopting California emission standards.

    Another person asked about the potential for rain to get into the filter because her hood has vents. I have the Stalker hood. Is this an issue? Rain getting into the air filter?

    LarryM

    • The K&N Black Hawk Cold Air Intake will be fine with the Stalker Hood. It does not allow much water to get into the engine bay. Though, if it is in the direct line of rain, it can be bad for the engine.

    Will this fit on a 85mm bbk throttle body?

    Jared

    • Yes, this will work with an 85mm throttle body! You may just need to heat up the coupler so it stretches over the throttle body.

    Would this pass Texas inspections? Like does it have a sensor ?

    FernandoS

    • This cold air intake should pass emissions without any issues unless you're in California or a state that adopted California's emission standards. This honestly varies per state so we generally recommend that you confirm with a local shop on what will and won't pass emissions in your specific state.

      Vacuum tube didnt fit

      I don't know if I got sent a incomplete kit or what... all the other reviews said it fits my 2014 GT easy peasy. I open the box all excited to get started and the adapter I received for my vacuum tube is like half the size. Now I gotta figure out a reducer or a whole new vacuum line. I'll write a updated review once I figure it out and its installed. But for $360 bucks I feel it should of came with the right part.

      K N Delivers Again

      Very great and high quality cold air intake by KandN. I installed this with the Airaid Poweraid Throttle body spacer and it all fit perfectly. Nice solid tube, great black finish and good quality hardware. This kit also comes with a sound tube delete so you do not need to buy a separate sound tube delete.

      Very solid upgrade

      Took about 2hrs for me to take out the old one and fit the new one. Most of this time was spent trying to figure out why I had an extra tube that went into the stock intake that didn’t attach to the aftermarket. Turns out the hose isn’t required as it was just there to carry extra engine noise into the cabin....useless...removing the hose made the bay look much cleaner and neater. Love the all black look of this piece. The hp increase is hard to notice on the butt Dino but it is there. The lower mid rpm bands have the most power increase and the roar at higher rpms sounds much meaner. More importantly is the throttle response. You can tell a huge difference in the take off to the point I had to adjust the speed I take my foot off the clutch. The increase in throttle response allows me to drop the clutch much faster for smoother launches with less rubbing. You can hear it breathing too. Just a slight whistle that lets you know it’s working. Great product worth every penny

      Great product

      This only took me about an hr to put together and install. Love the all black since I have a black on black car. And most of the stuff under the hood is black. I loved that this deletes one of the useless hoses under the hood. Apparently the hose that doesn’t hook up to this is to take engine noise into the cabin.....and create extra clutter under the hood. Removing this made the engine bay look much cleaner and less cluttered. After installing I took her out for a test drive...just going through the neighborhood I could feel an immediate difference in throttle response. Having a stick I wasn’t expecting to notice much of a difference but especially at lower rpms the difference was significant...I was used to having to put a little extra throttle down when taking off from first gear and switching into 2nd at low rpms in order to compensate for the lag time between hitting the gas and the throttle body opening up...the air flow this allows completely eliminates that. When you hit the throttle it opens up at once. I can take off from a stop without having to give it as much throttle. And I noticed all that before I left the neighborhood... once out of the neighborhood I gunned it up the road riding the entire band through first and second gear. The power really kicks in at about 4K rpm which is better than the 4500 it was before. And when you hit that power band it sounds a lot better. The roar of the engine was much louder and you can hear the air flowing. When I accelerate normally I can hear a slight whine from the air sucking though the intake and it sounds very nice. Great product and great value...would recommend to any other mustang owners for a solid performance upgrade for not much money. I did this without a tune and everything functions perfectly. I will probably get a tune eventually so I can really milk the performance of this and other mods I plan to add later.
