Significant changes were made to the 2015 and 2016 Silverado 2500 HD / 3500 and its mechanical twin the GMC Sierra HD models to improve interior comfort as well as improving ride quality. One important feature of the Silverado and Sierra 2500HD/3500 carried over from 2014 is the 6.6-liter Duramax turbo diesel V8 engine. 2015 and 2016 Duramax 6.6L Diesel powered Silverado and Sierra trucks are rated at just less than 400 horsepower but where the Duramax shines is in torque output. This 6.6L turbo diesel Duramax engine is rated at an incredible 765 lb-ft of torque. Diesel pickup owners are obsessed with torque and cannot seem to get enough. 2015 and 2016 Duramax owners can rely on K&N for an easy diesel air intake upgrade 77-3087KP which will provide a guaranteed boost in horsepower and torque as well as improved looks under the hood.

The combination of the mandrel-bent aluminum air intake tube, K&N high-flow oversized conical diesel air filter, and application specific heat shield used in the 2015 and 2016 Silverado 2500 HD / 3500 and Sierra 2500HD / 3500 diesel air intake system results in massive power gains for the 6.6L Duramax turbo diesel. After establishing base line horsepower numbers of a 2015 and 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 6.6L diesel in stock trim, a 2015 and 2016 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 6.6L diesel was dyno tested with K&N diesel air intake 77-3087KP on K&N’s in-house dynamometer. Horsepower and torque gains were observed throughout the RPM range, with the max estimated gain of 19.94 horsepower occurring at 2,950 RPM and the estimated peak torque gain of 19.75 lb-ft taking place at 2,850 RPM.
