K&N’s 71-3070 Blackhawk Induction™ air intake system is great for adding power and performance with a killer, dark more aggressive, look. This air intake system is designed to add horsepower to quite a few 2009, 2010 and 2011 Chevy Silverado, Chevy Suburban, Chevy Tahoe, GMC Sierra, GMC Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade models with 4.8 liter, 5.3 liter and 6.2 liter V8 engines. See the full application listing below.
The K&N 71-3070 Blackhawk Induction™ air intake system features a black powder coated aluminum air intake tube with a welded K&N engraved plate, a black reusable K&N air filter made with Dryflow synthetic media, ablack powder coated heat shield, black hoses and black hose clamps. This black air intake system was engineered to work in harmony with stock GM sensors and computer. The intake has a mass air sensor adapter made specifically to work with the vehicles listed below. The intake tube includes a threaded crank case vent fitting so you will be able to easily reattach the crankcase vent hose.
The reusable K&N Air Filter element comes with K&N’s Dryflow® media which will provide for excellent airflow and engine protection without the use of air filter oil. Since the RU-3101HBK washable and reusable air filter has a large surface area, drivers can go up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is needed, depending on driving conditions. In addition, since this air filter does not use air filter oil, it is really easy to clean. Simply spray on the K&N 99-0624 synthetic air filter cleaner, rinse out with water then let the air filter dry.
What really makes the 71-3070 Blackhawk Induction air intake system stand out is the way it looks under the hood. The overall “black” appearance and finish of each component is designed to give your intake system a darker and more aggressive look.

Chevy and the University of Texas Athletics program announced a multi-year sponsorship where the Silverado will be the official Truck of the Longhorns. “There is no more appropriate place to showcase the stronger, smarter, more capable 2014 Silverado than in the heart of truck country at Texas Longhorn sporting events,” said Chris Perry, vice president of Chevrolet Marketing.
“This partnership complements the Silverado’s overall marketing campaign, with its strong focus on Texas, where a Longhorn fan lives in one out of every three households and is almost twice as likely to buy a truck than the average consumer.”
Expect to see Chevy information at activities at home athletics and alumni events, print and digital promotional opportunities, promotions, event signage, presence on the Longhorns’ statewide radio network and coaches’ endorsements. Chevy will also have a presence on the Longhorn Network, the 24-hour channel dedicated to programming associated with Texas Athletics and the University of Texas.
“We are appreciative of Chevrolet’s generous sponsorship in this category for multiple campus areas, including athletics,” said DeLoss Dodds, UT men’s athletics director. “Athletics is very collaborative on campus, and the scope of Chevrolet’s agreement is in line with that very spirit.”
Here are a few ideas on how Chevy might show-up: (i) a Silverado truck to pull the UT mascot’s trailer to and from events; (ii) a Silverado at the Texas Exes’ “Biggest Tailgate in Texas”; (iii) Chevy Silverado Ticket Will Call & Pick-up Window designations; (iv) Official Truck of the AT&T Red River Rivalry; (v) Silverado logo on the backdrop for all Texas Athletics official media conferences and interviews.
The University of Texas partnership follows the all-new 2014 Silverado’s overall launch efforts, which began in Texas with Silverado displays, drive events and an original song by Grammy-nominated recording artist Will Hoge. The campaign has since expanded nationally and will include consumer activities at NASCAR races, music venues, sporting events and a partnership with the National Volunteer Fire Council.
This is pretty unique for Chevy to partner with the University of Texas. It will likely imprint the Chevy brand in thousands of UT students for years to come. We do wonder though if some other UT rivals like A&M and Texas Tech might turn against the brand now that they are associated with the Longhorns. Either way, we like the creativity on Chevy’s part.
