K&N Releases 2015-16 RAM 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel Air Intake System

New from K&N – the Air Intake System for 2015-2016 RAM 1500 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel. This system is designed to increase horsepower while improving throttle response and engine sound. See more details below.

Official Release:

Engineered for compatibility with 2015-2016 RAM 1500 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel models, the K&N 57-1571 Air Intake System offers a guaranteed increase in horsepower and torque for power-seeking RAM aficionados.

The 2016 RAM 1500 offers a standard 3.0L V6 engine which provides 395 horsepower and a significant 410 lb-ft of torque, along with a 9,200-pound towing capacity. Even more impressive are the EPA-estimates for fuel economy—the FWD models can achieve up to 29 mpg on the highway.

The standard 3.0L V6 engine provides a respectable amount of power, but the stock air intake system that may cause unnecessary air turbulence and slow the volume of airflow reaching the engine.

The K&N 57-1571 air intake system is a free-flowing, high-density polyethylene tube cold air intake system engineered to replace the factory air filter and air intake components. K&N roto-molded HDPE intake tubes are meticulously designed to be aerodynamic, and when paired with the included High-Flow Air Filter™ can increase airflow to your engine by up to 50%. The oversized conical air filter allows for up to 100,000 miles between cleanings under normal highway driving conditions, and is washable, durable, and reusable. When your filter is due for a cleaning, the K&N Recharger Kit (99-5000) contains everything you’ll need to quickly and easily wash away contaminants and restore your filter’s performance.

The 57-1571 system also offers a black powder-coated aluminum heat shield, protecting the air filter and intake air from the high temperatures radiating from the engine. The heat shield installs onto the lower factory air box, retaining the fresh air inlet. The air intake tube funnels airflow directly into the engine’s throttle body for a guaranteed increase in horsepower and torque.

Installation of your new air intake system can typically be completed in 90 minutes or less, as the kit utilizes existing factory mounting points, incorporates the factory mass air sensor, and requires only basic hand tools. Since the intake system allows for the removal of unnecessary stock air intake components, your engine bay will be left with a cleaner appearance after installation.

The results are notable—on a chassis dynamometer, a 2015 RAM 1500 3.0L V6 EcoDiesel with the stock air intake was recorded at 187.89-hp at 3,300rpm, and after installation of the 57-1571 the same vehicle was recorded at 199.12-hp at 3,300rpm—an estimated increase of 11.22-hp. The torque was also improved from 300.00 lb-ft on the stock air intake to 315.34 lb-ft with the 57-1571—a total estimated increase in torque of 15.34 lb-ft at 3,300rpm. You can buy with confidence under the 10-Year/Million Mile Limited Warranty—and the knowledge that you’re guaranteed an increase in horsepower and torque.
