Kia Spectra Gains 7+ Horsepower with K&N's 69-Series Typhoon Air Intake System
The 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 Spectra is based on the next generation Hyundai Elantra platform and is the larger of Kia's two compact cars. The Spectra's 2.0L 4-cylinder engine is also the same engine as the Elantra. In 2005, the compact car was designed with a European appearance.
Typhoon Air Intake System for 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 Kia Spectra
K&N Engineering has developed a new 69-Series Typhoon Air Intake (
) for the 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 Kia Spectra 2.0L L4. "It is designed to be used with the factory mass air flow sensor along with a heat shield that keeps the filter isolated from the engine compartment," said K&N Project Technician Nestor Cabrera. "This keeps the engine cool for maximum horsepower and torque."
K&N dynamometer tests show a 7.17 horsepower gain @ 5800 RPM for this intake. "This kit (
) has exceptional power gains for this type of engine," said Cabrera. "Kia NA provided us with some of the cars for testing. We actually applied information used in previous intake designs and applied it to this one. It resulted in a fairly smooth and non-troublesome intake design."
As with all other
, each Spectra kit begins with a high-flow K&N Replacement Filter (
). "We designed this Typhoon Air Intake (
) so that the filter and the heat shield would be located where the original air box was," said Cabrera. "The filter uses a special radiused mounting flange to provide smooth non-turbulent air flow into the intake tube."
Typhoon Systems improve both engine performance and under the hood aesthetics. This K&N (
) short-ram Intake System is available in polished aluminum.
