None directly. There is a Banks Cold Air Intake Set-up that includes a K&N Air Filter. Easy installation, takes about an hour. There are two different kits depending on the year the chassis was manufactured.

carefull with the K&N filter when you clean and re-oil it, I worked at a shop and we replaced alot of MAF sensors on vehicles with K&N filters, the oil will contaminate the sensor and cause problems if it is overoiled. I used to use K&N and Amsoil filters then I had MAF problems and switched back to paper filter.

I've used K&N filters for years and never had a problem:
Wash and re-oil about every 10,000 miles.

1994 Dodge Ram 2500 V-10
2004 Dodge Ram 1500 Hemi
1996 Harley XLH
1986 FLHTC
2007 FLHTCUI

Properly installed and maintained they are worth the intial investment and time to maintain them IMHO.

These are the kits I was talking about. Available for different set-ups.

Slightly off-topic but somewhat related…

In the motorcycle and auto worlds there have been various posts and threads of issues getting warranty repairs approved with K&N filters installed. Sounded like the common theme was the authorizing body at the repair facility was flexing their muscle and requiring the owners to show documentation of the regular maintenance being performed on the filter. In the case of do-it-yourselfers, they were looking for receipts for the “recharge kit” and a “log” of sorts.

I’m a gear-head, I get it! Let it breathe and feed it more; intake, exhaust and tweak the fuel mix! J

Just be prepared to show proof of maintenance.
