K&N (69-3536TTK): Typhoon Intake for 2015 Ford Mustang 3.7L

A K&N performance air intake system is designed to free up horsepower being lost to restrictive factory air inlet components. By replacing the stock enclosed air box, accordion hosing, and sound baffling, a K&N performance air intake system can reduce restriction, straighten airflow, and increase both horsepower and torque. K&N’s 2015 Ford Mustang Fastback V6 and 2015 Ford Mustang Convertible V6 air intake systems (69-3536TTK) replace these restrictive factory parts with a mandrel-bent aluminum air intake tube, finished in a flat black powdercoat and coupled to a high-flow washable and reusable K&N air filter. Additionally, it incorporates an application-specific, powder-coated heat shield, which helps block hot air from entering the intake system.

AIRAID (350-318): Cold Air Dam Intake for 2011-2015 Dodge Charger 5.7L

AIRAID’s 350-318 cold air dam (CAD) air intakes for the 2011-2015 Dodge Charger 5.7L are engineered to give your engine larger amounts of cooler air to produce more horsepower and torque. The intake system retains the original location of the air filter but delivers a big boost with the addition of a huge open-element air inlet protected by CAD panels that help to provide a steady, free-flowing supply of cooler outside air into your engine. The panels mount in the factory air box location and use any factory cold air inlet ducts that are present, while adding additional cold air passages to the filter. The panels also keep the filter isolated from the hot engine compartment by sealing to the underside of the hood via blade-style weather stripping. Some CAD systems connect to the factory air intake tube while others use a replacement low-restriction intake tube. The 360-degree conical AIRAID premium air filter is washable and reusable, less restrictive than traditional paper, and provides superior filtration. This CAD air intake is easy to install with common hand tools and is backed by AIRAID’s exclusive No-Hassle Lifetime Warranty.

To Oil or Not to Oil: (That’s Not Really the Question)

By John M. Arnaud

Over the years, the air-filter experts at K&N have proven (in their in-house filtration test lab, no less) that the secret to increasing airflow to your engine without sacrificing protection lies in their exclusive air filter oil. This oil, which permeates a filter’s cotton fibers, grabs dust and other microscopic contaminants and keeps them from entering your system. Non-oiled paper filters don’t even come close.

So the question isn’t whether you should be using an oiled filter (you should); instead, you should be asking “How much should I use?” and “How do I apply it?” The answers to those questions depend on which delivery system you use: squeeze bottle or aerosol applicator. Read on for the scoop from K&N:

Squeeze Bottle

Apply the air filter oil evenly along the crown of each pleat, then allow the oil to wick for 20 minutes before touching up any light areas on either side of the filter.

K&N Squeeze Oil

Aerosol Bottle

Spray the oil evenly along the crown of each pleat, holding the spray nozzle about 3” away from the filter. Allow the oil to wick for 20 minutes, then touch up any light areas on either side of the filter.

K&N Aerosol Oil

Most K&N air filters are oiled at the factory, so reoiling shouldn’t be necessary until it’s time to clean your filter, usually at 50,000 or 100,000 miles, depending on your application. K&N’s Recharger kits contain everything you need to freshen up your filter, including filter cleaner and your choice of oil dispenser.
