Add Estimated 14.6 Horsepower to 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution with K&N Air Intake

 
 
There is a list of the world’s all-time greatest street cars and the 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution made the cut. K&N’s Chairman of the Board Jerry Mall took second place in the Silver State Classic Challenge Nevada Open Road Challenge in his K&N Evo in the Speed-Stop Z2Z Challenge on Hwy 490. Every vehicle in that competition was equipped with K&N products.

K&N has developed a performance air intake system (69-6545T) for those who race or drive a 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution with a 2.0 liter engine. K&N dynamometer testing shows a 14.6 horsepower increase at 5500 rpm. This is a great power gain for a four-cylinder engine.

K&N decided to use a large cone shaped air filter with a carbon fiber top (part number RP-4600) for the Mitsubishi after trying different shapes and sizes of intake tubes with different filters. “We found out that the factory intake worked well and it did not change the horsepower gains,” said Bert Heck, K&N Performance Kit Manager. “The K&N air filter is the primary reason for the power gain. It increases air flow while protecting the engine from harmful debris.”

The lifetime washable and reusable K&N air filter is also surrounded by a Carbon Fiber heat shield.  The heat shield is an important part of the kit because it allowed K&N to utilize the factory fresh air inlet by attaching it to the heat shield. “Since the heat shield is made of Carbon Fiber it's light and durable,” said Heck. “It also has the look that tuners like to add style to their engines. It also protects and isolates the K&N air filter from much of the engine's heat.”

Designed to be installed with simple hand tools in 90 minutes or less, our K&N air intake systems are backed by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty.
