The 2013, 2014, and 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.4L can receive improved performance with the superior airflow and superior performance of a K&N Air Intake System

The need for fuel efficiency and passenger space has made the cross over SUV market an intense battle ground amongst the major automobile manufacturers. The Hyundai Santa Fe Sport has an advantage over the competition with low base model pricing as well as an EPA estimated 27 highway MPG. However, the 5-passenger 2013, 2014, and 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport comes standard with a 2.4L GDI direct injection naturally aspirated four cylinder engine. The 2.4L engine is rated at 190 horsepower and 181 lb-ft of torque, which isn’t bad. Yet it fails to live up to the Santa Fe Sport performance standard set by the Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.0T engine. This has led many 2013-2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.4L owners to search for an affordable way to boost performance and improve throttle response.

Roto-molded air intake tubes allow K&N the most freedom of design and offer OE fit and finish

Roto-molded air intake tubes, like the one used in the 2013-2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.4L air intake system, allow K&N the most freedom of design and offer OE fit and finish

K&N engineers decided to free up some Hyundai Santa Fe Sport horsepower by reducing restriction and turbulent airflow, while also maximizing the amount of air available to the 2.4L GDI engine. Boosting performance of 2013-2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.4L models is accomplished by replacing restrictive factory intake ducting and the enclosed air filter box with a free-flowing, molded high-density polyethylene (HDPE) air intake tube and an oversized open K&N high-flow air filter element. A K&N air intake system, like number 63-5301 for Santa Fe Sport 2.4L models, is able to minimize restriction, straighten airflow, and increase the amount of airflow available to the engine. More air and less restriction means more usable power throughout the engine’s RPM range by allowing the engine to work more efficiently.

The K&N RU-4600 over-sized reusable air filter is fitted to the inlet of the K&N roto-molded air intake tube to provide superior airflow and superior performance without sacrificing engine protection. The filter is washable and reusable and can go up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions. The K&N air intake 63-5301 for 2013, 2014, and 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.4L models incorporates an application specific air filter heat shield which serves to deflect engine heat away from the K&N air filter. Keeping engine heat away from the K&N air filter helps to keep inlet air temperature (IAT) readings within factory specifications as well as promoting more efficient combustion.

The 63-5301 performance air intake system is an easy to install performance upgrade that can be installed in about 90 minutes or less using basic hand tools. By following K&N’s simple step-by-step instructions owners of 2013-2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.4L models can experience increased performance while still being able to brag about their crossover SUV’s sticker price. On the dyno, when installed on a 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.4L, the K&N 63-5301 Performance Air Intake System produced an estimated additional 3.68 horsepower at 5591 rpm and an estimated increase of 3.78 lb-ft of torque at 4794 rpm. What a dyno does not measure, is the quicker acceleration, better throttle response, improved drivability, or sportier engine sound that comes from installing a K&N air intake system.

The K&N 2013, 2014, and 2015 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport 2.4L air intake system, number 63-5301, maintains all necessary factory connections and does not require any additional modifications to experience a boost in performance. K&N backs its air filters and air intake systems with a 10-year/million mile limited warranty so Hyundai Santa Fe Sport owners can rest assured that their intake system will provide improved performance for years to come.

Performance Air Intake System 63-5301 is guaranteed to provide an increase in horsepower and torque on the Hyundai Santa Fe models below:

2015 HYUNDAI SANTA FE 2.4L L4
2014 HYUNDAI SANTA FE 2.4L L4
