The K&N 69-2001TWK Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some BMW M3 models. The restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing are replaced by the K&N Typhoon air intake which is designed to dramatically reduce air flow restriction as it smoothes and straightens air flow. This allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air than the factory air intake. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine’s RPM range. The 69-2001TWK air intake comes with an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield that installs into the previous air box space. Air is directed through the intake tube into the engine’s throttle body for a guaranteed power gain. The intake tube has an attractive black powder-coat finish that's made to last and it accommodates the factory mass air sensor and air straightener. The oversized cone shaped air filter can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install usually in 90 minutes or less using existing factory mounting points. The tools needed are a screwdriver, pliers, dikes, a ratchet set and some wrenches. Some Typhoon air intakes are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are CARB exempt and 50 state legal. Check the K&N catalog or website for vehicle applications and specific CARB status for each vehicle and air intake.

  The product was ok.....a little bit of a bugger to get on there...but if you hold your mouth just right....

  Dear K&N,

Your product was as advertized & I am enjoying the additional performance as well as the melodic scream of my M3's six injectors at 8 grand plus.  Installation was as promised (videos helpful)and also looks racy under the hood.

The only thing that I would improve is getting it to the customer quicker without pumped up S&H charges.  You of course are not alone in that retail mail order sin.

Thanks for a great product
