With a stylish new body and more interior room, the 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Scion xB is a grown-up version of the first generation xB. Scion also added the 2.4L engine from the tC sports coupe to the list of the xB's features. K&N has designed and released a new performance intake system for the 2008 and 2009 Scion xB which uncovers an additional 9.06 horsepower at 5026 RPM hidden behind the xB's factory intake.

K&N part number 69-8613TS features a mandrel bent aluminum intake tube, which is powdercoated silver for a low maintenance metallic finish. The mandrel bent tube ensures incoming air has a smooth, unrestricted path to the engine. The factory fresh air duct is retained, and routes outside air to the inside of a powdercoated steel heat shield, directly toward the K&N air filter. The factory mass airflow sensor is removed from the stock air box, and reinstalled into a CNC machined adaptor on the K&N intake tube. This combination allows the xB's 2.4L engine to breathe more efficiently, resulting in an immediate 9.06 horsepower increase over the factory system, with no other modifications necessary.

The RU-3570 round tapered air filter mounts within the heat shield, and provides virtually unrestricted airflow while providing superior filtration. Multiple layers of K&N's high flow cotton filter media are treated with 0.97 ounces of K&N air filter oil, which traps dirt and dust without sacrificing airflow. The RU-3570 is also washable and reusable, and can go up to 100,000 miles before cleaning.

The 69-8613TS installs easily in 90 minutes or less, and requires only a socket set, pliers, wrenches, and a flat blade screwdriver. A photo illustrated instruction sheet is included to guide you through each step. The entire intake system is covered by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty.
