Add 15 Horsepower to European Seat with K&N Engineering Typhoon Kit

 
 
In the European supermini sector, the Seat Ibiza has sporty, aerodynamic features. The Seat Cordoba is also a supermini sedan built by Spanish car maker Seat. It is the 4-door version of the Seat Ibiza. These inexpensive small cars are as solidly constructed as most German executive cars that cost three times as much and blend character with practicality.

K&N Engineering has released a new 69-Series Typhoon Air Intake (69-8251TS) in powder coated silver for the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 SEAT Ibiza 111 1.8L L4 Turbo and the 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002 SEAT Cordoba 1.8L L4 Turbo. Sparkling blue (69-8251TB) is also available.

The kit is a Complete Cold Air system. "This means it can be assembled onto the vehicle in two configurations," said K&N Project Designer Joost Adriaans. "The way to get the most out of this kit, approximately 15 horsepower, is to use the two tubes supplied, connected with a rubber hose and one of our drychargers fitted on the filter element, that is positioned behind the front wheel."

The drycharger is water-repellant and avoids water getting ingested into the intake. In bad weather conditions, the kit can be converted to a short ram configuration, where the filter is positioned in the upper part of the engine, just below the hood.

"It is usually a bit of a challenge to squeeze more horsepower out of the smaller European turbo engines with an intake kit," said Adriaans. "We are very satisfied with a 15 horsepower gain.

It takes about an hour to install this kit. "This K&N Intake Kit definitely improves performance, looks and the sound of anyone's Seat," said Adriaans.
