The Volkswagen Golf has been a bestseller in Europe for two decades, but in the United States it has a wide range of compacts as competition. Think of it as a descendant of the car that started the economy box trend years ago, the Volkswagen Rabbit.

If you own a 1998, 1999, 2000 or 2001 Volkswagen Golf with a 2.0L engine you know the standard four-cylinder engine is good for 115 horsepower. K&N Engineering has released a new 69-Series Typhoon Air Intake System.

K&N tests have shown an 8 horsepower gain @ 6000 RPM for this intake.  "The position of the mass air sensor and the type and position of the filter used are very critical for power gains," said K&N Project Designer Joost Adriaans. "We did a lot of testing with all these variables."

There are two eye catching choices for this 69-Series Intake System. Consumers have a choice of polished aluminum or powder coated blue. The polished aluminum finish on this 69-Series Intake System is part number 69-9752TP. For the powder coated blue the part number is 69-9752TB. Blue is a very popular color on the Volkswagen Golf in Europe.

No matter your color preference K&N Engineers have made sure the design on the system provides maximum power to meet consumer demands. "The intake system is quite long and it makes it harder to develop due to alignment issues," said Adriaans. "But we were able to take advantage of the vehicle's design with this kit by positioning the filter far away from the engine. Modifying one of the grill inserts provides extra air to the filter."

The filters on our Air Intake Kits are washable and reusable. It takes about 90 minutes or less to install this kit.  Find K&N products for your vehicle using the K&N application search then use the K&N dealer search to find a K&N dealer in your part of the world.
