The K&N 69-3515TS Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Ford Fusion 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 69-3515TS air intake comes with a black rubber 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 silver powder-coat finish that's made to last and it accommodates the factory mass air sensor as well as replacement silicone crank case and EVAP vent hoses (where EVAP is equipped). 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 couple of screwdrivers, pliers, a ratchet set and an Allen wrench. 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.

Product Reviews

January 8, 2015 - Part 69-3515TS
The air intake arrived quickly and on time from K&N. It was packaged well and included clear instructions and a hard copy of the dyno sheet. I like that K&N actually supplies the data to support their guaranteed horsepower claim. The installation took about 2 hours for me and my 15 year old son. It would go quicker for an experienced guy working alone, but it was a teaching activity for us. The intake fit fine except for one slot that needed to be enlarged to fit the bolt that goes through it. The air intake seems to provide more power, but it's hard to tell a 12 hp gain on a 185 hp engine from the seat of your pants. At full throttle, high RPM, it does feel like it is pulling harder than before the kit was installed. We like the sound the engine makes now too. We do notice that the engine cranks a few seconds longer to start, especially in cold weather. Maybe this is a calibration issue related to more airflow and a leaner mixture, but we definitely notice longer cranking time since installing the intake. K&N might want to explain this phenomenon up front. Overall, we are happy with the intake kit as a good horsepower per dollar, low risk, low effort modification.
