Part No. 57-2556 Warranty Details  

See if this part fits a specific vehicle.

Check Vehicle Fit

The K&N 57 Series FIPK 57-2556 air intake system replaces your vehicle’s restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing. K&N intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as they smooth and straighten air flow. This allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air than the factory air filter assembly. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine’s RPM range. The 57-2556 air intake comes with a chrome topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield that installs into the previous air box space. Air is directed through an aerodynamically engineered intake tube into the engine’s throttle body for a guaranteed power gain. The oversized air filter can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install usually in 90 minutes or less using commonly available tools. K&N 57 Series FIPK's are street legal in all 50 US states and come with K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty.

Product Features:
  • Estimated Horsepower Gain: 15.46 HP @ 3829 RPM
  • Replacement Filter: RF-1020
  • Guaranteed to increase horsepower
  • Designed to improve throttle response and engine sound
  • Lasts up to 100,000 miles before service is required (depending on driving conditions)
  • Replaces entire factory air intake system
  • Free-flowing high density polyethylene tube
  • Easy to install, usually in 90 minutes or less
  • Washable and reusable lifetime air filter

        Comments about K&N Performance Intake Kit:

        Haven't calculated mileage yet, hoping for a boost. Nice sound upon acceleration. Easy install, took about 90 minutes including set up and cleanup.

        Instructions were easy to follow; my 12-year old could have done this. Torque specs for installing the new throttle body adapter would have been nice though. The rubber inserts for installing the heat shield onto the factory filter mounting plate didn't work so good; the nut pulled thru the rubber and didn't secure the part. The long silicone PVC hose was missing from the box.

            Great product. Effective outcome of installation. Directions are a little difficult, but if you have any mechanical ability, it is quite simple. About 90 minute installation and it works as advertised.

              Well made product. Installation instructions could be better written. Had to repeat some steps of installing and removing others. Need a better flow to the directions. The pictures are good but the parts diagram needs to be bigger for ease of reading. Installation took about 90 minutes and performs well.
