The K&N 69-4516TS Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Chevrolet Cobalt 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 69-4516TS air intake comes with a black rubber topped K&N high-flow air filter that installs near the driver side wheel well to access cooler, denser air. 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 and crank case vent hose. The oversized cone shaped air filter comes with a water repellent DryCharger filter wrap to protect the filter from moisture. The 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.

Customer Feedback

Dear Sirs,
   I installed your cold air intake system on my 05' supercharged Cobalt, close fit but installed just fine.  It really made a difference in horsepower and now you can really hear the supercharger spin, sounds great!

Thank you for the quality workmanship.

I own a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt SS Supercharged.  When I bought the car brand new, I installed the K&N Typhoon Air Intake and I was impressed.  I was impressed so much I had the car dyno'd by a local performance shop.  The car came stock with 205hp (at the flywheel)...after I installed the Typhoon, it dyno'd at 225hp at the wheels.  What an improvement!!!

I have a Chevrolet Cobalt Sport (2.4L). I bought the K&N Short Ram Intake, because it was the only intake designed to fit my car. I was weary of K&N's claims of a 15 hp gain. But I bought the intake, knowing it was a good product. Upon receiving my intake I open it up and I am just amazed at the quality and the attention to detail. On the first time I fire up the Cobalt with the new intake on, I feel in love. The sound is wonderful. Fast forward a few months. I finally get to take it to a dyno, my baseline (stock) dyno was 159whp, with only the K&N intake on I gain 12whp. I about fell over, and not to mention this was on a 90 degree day. All I can say is K&N knows how to please their customers and make great products that back them selves up and don't need advertising hype. K&N you are on top for a reason, congratulations.
