K&N high flow air intake systems provide a measured increase in horsepower while providing excellent air filtration. The XStream top air filter (RX-4730) has a molded end velocity stack for a smooth transition of air flow from the filter to the tube. Space is tight in the engine and our K&N XStream air filter utilizes the available space to maximize air flow, surface area and dust capacity.

K&N's design isolates the K&N XStream air filter from engine heat by utilizing a heat shield.  Our air intake system has lower restriction than the factory air box system which results in additional power to the engine.

The 69-0017TS has a CNC machined mass air sensor adaptor.  You can attach the mass air sensor and it will work with the factory stock settings.  This means there is no need for re-programming to run our K&N air intake system.

Our performance air intake systems are backed by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty and can be easily installed in 90 minutes or less with simple hand tools.
