    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.

        5 Top Rated Questions

        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?

        • 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.

            Awesome!

            This cold air intake is well worth the money. I didn’t really notice much of a gain in horsepower but the throttle response is definitely much better. It also makes a nice whistling sound when you accelerate

            Great Looking Sounding Intake

            I am very happy with my new KandN Blackhawk CAI. I don't feel a huge power gain but then again I haven't tuned the car yet. The KandN adds a great aggressive sound as the car is accelerating and also looks great under the hood! It was a perfect fit and easy install. I'd highly recommend the Blackhawk.

            Water issue

            Could not give it a 5 never had a chance to take it oit on the road. After install, leaving the filter off I decided to give it a water test. The outcome was not good. Took a hose to the hood, opened the hood and there was water where no water should be. Looked good but due to the problem of water entering the filter, decided to return it.

            Great intake if you aren’t going to run a tune!

            Originally purchased the intake thinking I wasn’t going to tune the car but I drove my friends tuned boss 302 and fell in love so I had to buy the manifold and get tuned. But for 6 months I ran the car with the cold air intake and no tune like it says and it ran solid! Gave it a nice whistle on acceleration and once I did the boss and got her tuned, she is a complete different car

            Took about an hour to install. The all black looks great. The sound is incredible at wide open throttle. Fees like it has more power. Doing exhaust and a tune next.

            I installed this in about 30-45 min on a Sunday and I've really heard and felt the difference in my 2013 gt and I love it. The blacked out appearance of the intake is awsome and I couldnt be more satisfied!!!
