When Mustang drivers corner hard they get a good grip and can really feel what the car is doing. Performance is what the Mustang GT is all about. It also sounds good, whether cruising or at full throttle. The GT engine has revised camshafts, intake manifold runners and larger valves.

K&N Engineering has released a new 69-Series Typhoon Air Intake (69-3524TP) in polished aluminum for the 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000 and 2001 Ford Mustang GT 4.6L V8. K&N dynamometer tests show a 6.81 horsepower gain @ 4600 RPM for this intake.

"Kit 69-3524TP is specially designed to work with the Ford Mustang GT 4.6L," said K&N Project Technician Nestor Cabrera. "The Kit uses the factory MAF (Mass Air Flow), an airflow optimized filter adapter and a high flow K&N Air Filter (RF-1036) with heat shield. The high flow K&N Air Filter helps provide smooth non-turbulent air flow into the intake tube. It incorporates an airflow optimized mounting flange. The heat shield isolates the filter from the engine compartment keeping the air around it cooler."

The vehicle design played a major roll in the development and design of this intake kit. "Special care was taken to ensure that the Air Intake System (69-3524TP) followed the vehicles lines and that it did not obstruct or rub against other parts in the engine compartment," said Cabrera. "There is symmetry between the intake kit and the engine compartment."

With all K&N 69-Series Typhoon Air Intakes there is a through development procedure which requires the use of multiple vehicles to ensure a consistent horsepower and torque gain on every car, said Cabrera. "There is a lot of testing that K&N Air Intakes go through before they are finalized for production," he said. "We were able to locate the cars we needed for testing through our car database on our website."
