Riverside, CA – The K&N High-Flow Intake System for the 2010 Ford F150 SVT Raptor 6.2L, ( 77-2579KTK), increases horsepower by an estimated 20 hp at 4830 rpm over the stock configuration. To achieve more horsepower, K&N replaces the original intake assembly; including the air box, air filter and intake tube with an all-new intake design. The new system draws air through a K&N High-Flow Air Filter that increases airflow and never needs to be replaced. Protecting the chrome top cone-shaped air filter, and isolating it from engine heat, is a powder coated heat shield that replaces the stock air box. Since the OEM air box and washer reservoir are mounted together, the K&N air intake system also includes a new washer reservoir to replace the OEM piece.  Air then travels through a larger diameter K&N black aluminum tube that is formed and shaped, in the design phase, to drive a more laminar flow of air to the truck’s engine.

The 77-2579KTK is available where quality performance is sold and is backed by the same K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty® as all K&N OE Replacement Air Filters.

K&N Engineering, Inc., with headquarters in Riverside, California, has been the world’s leader in performance filter technology since 1969, serving the needs of the automotive, motorcycle, marine, industrial and military markets.
