K&N air intake system on 2015-2016 Chrysler 200 2.4L Tigershark engine

The 2015-2016 Chrysler 200 2.4L Tigershark engine isn’t exactly overwhelming with its 184-hp and 173 lb-ft of torque but the K&N 69-2551TS Typhoon Performance Intake System can add power

Technically speaking, the midsize 2015-2016 Chrysler 200 competes in the same segment as the Toyota Camry and Hyundai Sonata. But this "American Import" targets a more sophisticated buyer, who wants a bit more style and luxury in their family sedan. To that end, Chrysler gave the 200 a sleek new look for 2015 that stands out in a crowd, then backed its upscale image with a luxurious interior, and a drivetrain that can really perform. Just turn the shift knob over to 'S' to engage Sport Mode, and suddenly your drive becomes a bit more interesting.

The 2015-2016 Chrysler 200 2.4L Tigershark engine isn’t exactly overwhelming with its 184-hp and 173 lb-ft of torque. But if you want to get the most out of your Chrysler 200's Sport Mode and the 2.4L Tigershark engine, the K&N 69-2551TS Typhoon Performance Intake System can sharpen throttle response, and add an estimated 4.69 horsepower. This will give your 2015-2016 Chrysler 200 2.4L Tigershark engine the ferocity that its name implies.

As you may remember from school, fire needs oxygen in order to burn. So to ignite the gasoline inside the cylinders and create power, air has to be funneled to the throttle body through an intake system. To burn the fuel more completely, thus creating more power from the same amount of fuel, a larger volume of oxygen-rich cold air can be introduced into the cylinders.

The K&N 69-2551TS Air Intake System is engineered to address the issues of the stock air intake tract so your 2015-2016 Chrysler 200 2.4L engine can perform to its true potential

However, a stock air intake tract, like the one on your 2015-2016 Chrysler 200 2.4L, uses narrow plastic tubes, with sharp bends and uneven surfaces on the inside. Once the air finally makes it through the restrictive factory air box and paper air filter, it flows into those bends and obstructions inside the intake tube, and starts to swirl around. This turbulent air heats up as it passes through the system, and it finally reaches the throttle body in uneven ‘waves’, which is less than ideal for making horsepower.

A factory intake system is extremely limited by its design, but the K&N 69-2551TS Typhoon Performance Air Intake System is engineered to address all of these issues, so your engine can perform to its true potential. To provide an unrestricted airflow path, the K&N 69-Series Typhoon Intake System replaces the stock intake tube with a mandrel-bent aluminum air intake tube that is polished in appearance. The K&N intake tube features a larger diameter than stock to handle more air, and mandrel-bent curves to significantly reduce air turbulence. The aluminum intake tube also has built-in fittings for the inlet air temperature sensor and crank case vent hose.

K&N installed the K&N 69-2551TS Intake System on a stock 2015 Chrysler 200 2.4L and dyno testing showed an estimated increase of 4.69 horsepower and 6.18 lb-ft of torque

The well thought out design of the 2015-2016 Chrysler 200 2.4L air intake system, number 69-2551TS, allows you to install the system in about 90 minutes, without making any additional modifications. Air enters the system through a large conical K&N performance air filter, which not only provides superior air filtration, but it can also go up to 100,000 miles before it needs to be cleaned (depending on road conditions).

An application specific air filter heat shield mounts in place of the stock air box, to prevent the air filter from drawing in warm air from inside the engine compartment. With a steady supply of cold air, your 2015 or 2016 Chrysler 200 2.4L will be able to perform to its actual potential, for years to come. Your K&N performance intake is also guaranteed to perform for years to come, thanks to a 10-Year/million mile limited warranty.

In order to verify the performance gains, K&N installed the K&N 69-2551TS Typhoon Performance Intake System on a stock 2015 Chrysler 200 2.4L. Dyno testing showed an estimated increase of 4.69 horsepower and 6.18 lb-ft of torque. The system will also provide faster throttle response, and better engine sound while under acceleration. But your individual results may vary, due the mileage, modifications, and condition of your specific car.
