Ford Fusion Receives Horsepower Increase Worthy of the Stock Car Racing Circuit

 
 
Stock Car racing fans are familiar with Ford's current contender on the oval track. While the Fusion that rolls off the assembly line probably won't find it's way on to the track, its racing pedigree can't be denied. Born for the oval track, but built for the street, Ford Fusion owners can awaken their car's passion for competition with K&N's Performance Air Intake System (69-3515TS) for the 3.0L V6 Models.

K&N intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction as they smooth and straighten airflow. This allows your engine to pull in air with ease compared to the OEM air filter assembly. More air means more power and torque when you need it. With a K&N Performance Air Intake System, drivers can count on extra horsepower whether driving around town, commuting, or hauling the family on vacation.

This air intake system uses a conical shaped high-flow air filter (RU-5176) and powder coated aluminum heat shield in place of the vehicle's stock air box. The result is an air filter that captures harmful particles, flows more air, and increases service life. This K&N air filter performs for up to 100,000 miles before service is required depending on driving conditions. Improving the air path between the filter and the engine is the powder coated aluminum intake tube. Our powder coated aluminum intake tubes offer power and a stylish appearance. The 69-3515TS takes about 90 minutes or less to install, with no cutting or drilling, and is covered by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty.

For increased protection and style, K&N offers a Drycharger® filter wrap that can be used in conjunction with part number 69-3515TS. Drychargers® are made from a durable polyester material containing uniform micron openings which will stop small dirt particles and repel water; yet add little restriction to the airflow of your filter. Available in a variety of colors, K&N Drychargers® can be color coordinated with your car's finish or your favorite race team.
