The Toyota Camry has been in production since 1982 and is still one of the more popular vehicles today. Toyota came out with the 2012 model (XV50) in September 2011, replacing the XV40 series as the seventh generation of Camry. This model has a 2.5 liter, and 3.5 liter engine option. While the 2.5 liter is great for around town, some drivers may need a bit more power to get where they're going, choosing the 3.5 liter V6 model.

K&N has designed a High-Flow Performance Air Intake System to accommodate the V6 motor. The 69-8618TS is a custom designed air intake system allowing better vehicle performance and providing excellent filtration to protect your engine. It is built to dramatically decrease intake restriction by smoothing and straightening air flow. This allows the vehicle's engine to breathe easier than the OEM air box assembly resulting in more power and torque. The 69-8618TS fits 2012-2017 Toyota Camry models with a 3.5 liter V6 engine..

The cone-shaped air filter (RU-4990), included with the air intake, is washable and reusable. No more disposable air filter to replace over and over. Performance air filter RU-4990 can be used for up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is needed, depending on driving conditions.

This air intake system is also equipped with a heat shield to help deflect heat from the engine. It also comes with a low restriction aluminum tube with a silver powder coated finish custom designed for the Toyota Camry. Installation can be completed with the use of common hand tools in less than 90 minutes. K&N 69-8618TS includes step-by-step directions with detailed photos for easy installation .
