Nissan 240SX Owners Add 10.65 Horsepower with K&N Typhoon Air Intake System

 
 
The Nissan 240SX is one of the most common machines available for the sport of Drifting. Drifters control their cars with a unique way of steering during competition. Steering the wheel is almost ineffective while in a drift, so top drivers use the gas and brake to maneuver on the course. The Nissan 240SX was one of the top cars in the 2006 Formula D Championship. For everyday drivers the 240SX is also known for its great steering and handling.

K&N Engineering has designed a new 69-Series Typhoon Air Intake (69-7075TS) in silver for the 1991, 1992, 1993, and 1994 Nissan 240SX 2.4 liter engine. "This Typhoon Air Intake System uses the factory Mass Air Flow sensor, custom radius filter adapter, and a K&N High Flow Air Filter (RU-4600)," said K&N Project Technician Nestor Cabrera.

K&N dynamometer testing shows a 10.65 horsepower gain @ 4500 RPM for this Typhoon Intake. "The horsepower and torque gains are exceptional for an engine of this size," said Cabrera. "The K&N Air Filter also uses a specially designed radius adapter which helps provide smooth air flow into the intake tube."

The heat shield is designed with provisions for the factory fresh air duct. This allows the K&N Air Filter to receive a consistent flow of fresh cool air. In addition, the heat shield isolates the K&N Air Filter from the engine compartment.

The design of the Nissan played a major roll in the development of this Typhoon Air Intake System. K&N engineers took special care to ensure that it followed the Nissan's lines and that it did not obstruct or rub against other parts in the engine.

It takes less than 90 minutes to install this kit with simple hand tools. K&N Typhoon systems are designed to improve engine performance along with under the hood visual appeal.
