Built for performance and show, the Typhoon Air Intake System is a free-flowing mandrel-bent aluminum tube induction system designed to fit many sport compact performance vehicles and muscle cars. Each kit is proven on a rear-wheel dynamometer to increase horsepower and torque. Typhoon intakes come in one of three designs; cold air intakes, short ram intakes, or complete cold air intakes which can be configured as either a cold air intake or a short ram intake. They come with an oversized High-Flow conical air filter designed to provide increased surface area and dust capacity. This extra surface area provides even more airflow at lower restriction than a standard K&N O/E replacement filter that is limited to the size of the factory air box. The oversize air filter also captures more dirt increasing the service life before a cleaning is required (up to 100,000 miles). Air intake systems are easy to install. A typical installation can be done with a screwdriver, pliers and a ratchet-set in 90 minutes or less. K&N specifically engineered kits to use existing factory holes and mounting points, making installation simple. The vast majority of cold air intakes do not require any cutting or drilling.
The K&N Typhoon Air Intake System increase horsepower by eliminating airflow obstruction in your engine. Restriction of air flow between an air filter and an engine robs even the most powerful engine of horsepower. K&N air intake kits virtually eliminate air path restriction by replacing the standard air filter and the entire air path to the engine. The aerodynamically engineered conduit that makes up the Typhoon Air Intake System drives a massive amount of air into an engine, which translates into power. This conduit begins with an oversized conical high-flow air filter. This larger filter can fit into the engine compartment using factory holes and mounting points because the Typhoon Air Intake System replaces your stock intake tube, and air box. On many Typhoon Air Intake Systems, the oversize air filter is isolated from high engine temperature by a heat shield designed to lower the temperature of the air entering the engine, which increases horsepower.
A high quality performance intake system is one of the best dollars to horsepower investments you can make and once again K&N is the clearly defined leader. K&N manufactures over 500 different part numbers and is constantly designing, building and testing new systems.
