      So I'm really curious on who all out here has put a K&N full air intake kit on a 2015 3.7 police interceptor seeing as how KNN doesn't make one for that truck there's got to be a way that I can put one on it. Can somebody please help.

      Waste of money with no performance gains. Wouldn't bother unless you are looking for a deeper engine sound.

      I don't see why you can't, but as blwnsmoke mentioned unless you are looking to boost engine sound or are planning to add a 'tune', it's a waste of $$. A few members have actually removed theirs and went back to stock.

      Besides having a few more ponies due to the slightly larger motor the shift points are the only "tune". I had the k&n cold intake and swear I lost a few horsepower and the intake noise was unbearable. Waaaaay too loud for me and I come from owning many performance cars.

      It would be the K&N Filter 77 Series High Flow Air Intake Kit - 77-2575KS.It's made for the 3.5l motor. But again, it's a waste of money IMHO with no gains and unbearable noise.

      I merged this thread with your existing thread. Please, one thread per topic. Could be you are wasting time as suggested above.

      The Forum's 'Search' feature (upper right) can be very useful in finding existing threads/posts. It may take a little getting used to but I use it everyday.
