The K&N High-Flow Intake System for the 2014 Chevy Silverado 5.3L, (63-3082), increases horsepower by 11 hp at 5341 rpm over the stock configuration. To achieve more horsepower, K&N replaces the Silverado’s 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 steel heat shield that replaces the truck’s stock air box.
K&N Blackhawk Induction Air Intake System, part number 71-3082, is designed to not only imply aggressive power, but is expert-engineered and guaranteed to increase horsepower and torque. It replaces the restrictive factory system with a free-flowing, mandrel bent aluminum air intake tube to help minimize restriction, straighten, and increase airflow to the engine. The intake tube is finished in a durable flat black powdercoat for an aggressive but low-key look under the hood. In stark contrast to the black intake tube is a welded and engraved aluminum K&N nameplate. A black powdercoated heat shield in included to help guard air entering the engine from heat under the hood.
K&N Cabin Air Filters use a single layer of thermally bonded nonwoven synthetic material as a physical barrier to trap dust, pollen, leaves and other debris. With the aid of K&N’s Refresher spray, an electrostatic charge is able to help capture most mold, mildew, spores, fungus, bacteria and germs while helping to control odors. K&N Cabin Air Filters are designed to meet factory filtration requirements and typically flow more air than the average disposable paper cabin air filter. Most cabin air filters on the market are a simple paper element lacking structure. K&N Cabin Air Filters are built with molded urethane and wire screen ensuring long life, and the ability to repeatedly clean them.
K&N Cabin Air Filters allow owners to clean their filter as often as necessary without incurring the cost of buying disposable filters over and over again. This is excellent news for allergy sufferers, those with breathing problems, or vehicles operated in dirtier than normal environments.

BOWLING GREEN, KY – Quick Fuel Technology (QFT) is well known for its innovative high performance and racing carburetors, and most recently, for its show-winning Black Diamond® heat-resistant coatings available on many of its carburetors and new QFI electronic fuel injection. To complete the package, QFT is offering a Black Diamond® square bore, four-barrel intake manifold that fits ’57-’86 (262-400cid) small block Chevy engines and those equipped with ’87-’91 L98 Corvette aluminum cylinder heads (non-EGR applications). In fact, this manifold will fit any small block Chevy engine with standard port and bolt-hole configurations.
BOWLING GREEN, KY – Quick Fuel Technology®, known for its innovative carburetors and fuel systems, is introducing QFI – a bolt-on throttle body electronic fuel injection system capable of supporting 500 horsepower. While the market is awash with bolt-on EFI systems, QFI is different: It combines the superior fuel atomization aspects of a carburetor with the precise fuel control of EFI. The patent pending 8-hole annular discharge sleeves inject fuel into a venturi where air speed is at its peak, and pressure is at its lowest, atomizing the fuel far better than any traditional injector nozzle can do. This results in a much more homogeneous fuel/air mixture that burns faster and more complete, producing more power and better response.
