The 2012 to 2013 Kia Soul 2.0 liter really stands out in the ever growing ultra-compact car crowd. With gas pricing rising, doing anything to help get noticed is important. Well the Kia Soul has done just that with its stylish looks, fuel efficient engine and transmission combo, low sticker price and most important, a 10 year/100,000 mile warranty from Kia. With all of these aspects, the Kia Soul is one great car for those not looking to spend a ton of money on the initial purchase or on yearly maintenance costs.

As with most ultra-compact cars, any way to easily add horsepower is a good thing. Well that option is available with K&N's 69-5308TS air intake system. This air intake system comes with a high-flow air intake tube, heat shield, oversized K&N performance air filter and all of the nuts, bolts and hose clamps needed to install it. Installation is easy and on average it can take less than 90 minutes to install. Once installed, owners can enjoy the estimated gain of 5 horsepower at 5664 RPM and 3.3 feet-pounds of torque at 4201 RPM.

The included high flow air intake tube is custom designed for the Kia Soul. It includes a welded-in fitting for the screw-in NPT nipple. The NPT nipple allows you to reconnect the stock crankcase vent hose to the intake tube. The air intake tube has a silver powder-coated finish that not only looks great, but is also easy to keep looking great. If the tube gets dusty, just use a slightly damp micro fiber cloth to remove the dust. Since the tube is powder coated, cleaning chemicals are not needed or recommended when cleaning the tube.

In addition to the great looking intake tube, the 69-5308TS air intake system also includes a black powder-coated heat shield, which is designed to feed cooler outside air into the air filter. The heat shield also has an attachment spot for the included fresh air inlet scoop. The fresh air scoop attaches to the heat shield and offers a way for the cooler outside air to reach the air filter without having to pass through the under-hood hot air.

To help improve air flow even more, the 69-5308TS air intake comes with a velocity stack style air filter adapter and an oversized RU-4600 high performance air filter. The velocity stack style adapter is designed to smoothly transition the air flow coming through the air filter and into the intake tube. The air filter fits onto the velocity stack style adapter and is secured with the provided hose clamp. Since the RU-4600 is an oversized air filter, not only will it do an excellent filtration job and protect your engine from dust, but you can go longer than the stock replacement air filter before cleaning is needed. Most drivers can go up to 100,000 miles before cleaning, depending on driving conditions. However, if you drive is dustier than normal conditions, K&N also offers the 22-8036PK PreCharger air filter wrap to help extend the service interval of the air filter.

The 69-5308TS air intake system has been designed with state of the art engineering tools and high quality materials. Because of this, K&N backs this air intake system with their famous Million Mile Limited Warranty. This gives owners the peace of mind K&N's air intake and air filter are the last you will ever need to purchase for your 2012 and 2013 Kia Soul 2.0 liter.

The K&N 63-5308TS Air Intake System will fit the following Kia Soul models:
2013 Kia Soul 2.0L
2012 Kia Soul 2.0L
