2019-2020 Chevy Silverado 1500 TruPower by STILLEN Cold Air Intake Scoop - TP403501

STILLEN is excited to announce the much anticipated launch of the 2019 and up Chevy Silverado Cold Air Intake Scoop.  The team at STILLEN have created several videos showcasing the features and benefits of this true cold air intake scoop.

The factory Air intake system on the Chevrolet Silverado 1500 is a very unique and creative design.  During testing our engineers placed multiple temperature probes throughout the engine bay and access panels of the Silverado engine bay in order to find the coldest possible air source.

Turns out, Chevrolet engineers did a pretty good job of finding a great source of fresh air. Knowing that repositioning the air intake would not be beneficial our team of designers began looking at ways to improve the airflow and find additional benefits.

Pretty quickly our team noticed that the path of the airflow was good, but quite disruptive.  The air had to travel through the grille, up the radiator, through the lattice work of the shroud then around the radiator shroud and finally into the intake scoop.

This presented two problems.

1) There is no natural path for the air to flow through.

Every one of these turbulent areas, every interference causes restriction and/or causes work for the air.  The goal is to get the air into and through the air intake system as cleanly and efficiently as possible.

2) The air is susceptible to being heated by the radiator.

The air must travel up the face of the radiator in order to make its way into the air intake opening.  Keep in mind, the radiators operational temperature is 180-220 degrees….Significantly higher than ambient.

To solve the two problems with this otherwise fantastic design the design team at STILLEN began by creating a proper scoop.  This scoop lowers the base of the radiator shroud to be in line with the top bar of the famous Chevrolet grille. This new design allows for the air to come directly into the intake system without being warmed by the radiator, or disrupted by the lattice type material in the radiator shroud.  This design eliminates the pre-heating and the turbulence caused by the factory system.

During our development our team noticed that the factory ¾ and 1 ton trucks actually have scoops in their radiator shroud designs also which confirmed that the TruPower by STILLEN cold air intake scoop for the Chevy Silverado was on the right track!

An additional benefit to this air intake is that it will work with any aftermarket air intake system that utilizes the factory air intake scoop.

I was sent this article earlier today by Josh in our Marketing department and since we use K&N filters on EVERYTHING we use here at STILLEN, I figured it would be great let our customers know why we do that.

Snagged from K&N’s website:

Spoiler alert – K&N reusable air filters are without a doubt worth every copper filled nickel. The scrutiny that their value is even up for debate becomes increasingly more absurd when you understand the facts.

As a writer for K&N I’ve interviewed hundreds of racers around the world and from every conceivable motorsport. Be it the undisputed Drift Racing Champion of Ukraine, the Mud Nationals mud racing champion, Italian Grand Prix Rookie of the Year Champion, Baja 500 and 1000 champions, monster trucks and snowmobiles, X Games gold, Peaks Pike winners, motocross champions and beyond – every single one credits K&N filters for being a part of their success. I’ve even written stories about K&N filters stopping bolts, bugs and rocks from getting sucked into engines. Are they worth it some may ask? Are you kidding me I retort?

I don’t shop much for birthday presents, especially not for old friends that say “you shouldn’t have bought me anything,” but then would sulk if I don’t. So this year I got my friend Mike Tuohy a K&N air filter for his 2008 Ford F-150. Seriously, it was the only way to stop him from constantly asking for one. I also feel pretty strong about my gift selection being that it’s something he’ll actually use.

K&N Filter

Purchasing a one-time use replacement also makes nothing but common sense. Mike’s Ford dealer claims he should change his air filter every 15,000 miles at a cost of 40 bucks a pop. The Ford manual says change the air filter at 30K, with an average DIY replacement cost of $25.00 for a paper filter. However, check any F-150 online forum and realistically most drivers change their air filters between 15,000 and 20,000 miles.

The K&N high-flow air filter Mike installed cost about $45.00 and took him about 5-minutes to replace, with the first couple of minutes wasted looking for his car keys. Applying some rudimentary ciphering, and using the 20,000 mile filter change timetable, Mike will have already saved money from his K&N filter after only two scheduled air filter changes. Then 10,000 miles later, after a normal 50,000 miles of driving, he can simply wash his cotton gauze K&N reusable filter and slide it back in place for another 50k. In fact he could probably drive more than three F-150 trucks into the ground before he’d ever have to buy another air filter. How is that possible you ask? Because his K&N air filter comes with a Million Mile limited warranty.

Some people have a tough time fathoming an air filter can go up to 50,000 miles between cleaning intervals, or will last for up to 1,000,000 miles, but since 1969 K&N has built a reputation as the world’s foremost leader in high-flow air filter and high-flow air intake system technology. Millions of drivers have made the one-time filter purchase, and when they immediately noticed the improvements in horsepower and acceleration, they told a million more people. Generally positive recommendations among friends are reserved for good movies and restaurants, yet once he installed his K&N air filter, it was like an automotive epiphany, and Mike just couldn’t help from telling the next person.

Above is one of our most popular Intake kits of all time the STILLEN Z-Tube Intake kit for the G35 Sedan and Coupe. We proudly use K&N filters on that as well as every other kit we make.

Think about it, if K&N were purely looking to make money wouldn’t single use filters every 20,000 miles make more sense? The secret to their success lies in the long-term achievement of their filters, and the people that use them.
