2009 to 2012 Audi A4, A4 Cabriolet & A4 Quattro Owners Gain Estimated 13.5 HP with K&N Air Intake
K&N continues to improve vehicle performance through its continuous production of new air intake systems guaranteed to increase horsepower and acceleration. K&N's
air intake (69-9505T)
for 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Audi A4, A4 Cabriolet and A4 Quattro models with a 2.0

drivability of the vehicle. Older A4 model designs made doing this very
Development began with the testing of varying intake tube diameters with the mass air sensor installed in both the tube and
in the factory mass air housing. After a series of testing sessions
and design changes K&N engineers came up with a design that met all goals.
"With the limited space and use of the factory mass air housing, little space was left for the air filter," commented Heck. "We had to eliminate the intake tube and design a custom hose to replace it.
This saved space and allowed for a larger K&N air filter." The air

is a cone shaped, high-flow air filter that provides excellent filtration,
outstanding engine protection, and less restriction than the factory air
A custom heat shield was also designed as part of the 69-9505T
intake. It helps to reduce the amount of hot engine compartment air
going into the engine. It also utilizes the factory fresh air inlet to
direct cooler outside air into the air intake.
K&N's comprehensive testing of the
utilized three test vehicles with approximately 100 dyno pulls, road testing and computer monitoring.
The final result showed a power gain of
13.5 horsepower at 4500 rpm with the use of K&N's 69-9505T air intake system.
Installation of the 69-9505T air intake system is easy with K&N's photo illustrated instruction sheet. K&N's 69-9505T air intake system typically installs on 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Audi A4,
