The K&N 69-4524TS Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Chevrolet Sonic 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 69-4524TS 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 turbo inlet 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. 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, 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.

I love this kit. Took maybe 30 minutes to install and there was a dramatic impact on sound and performance. I definitely recommend this kit.

Quick and rewarding. I have now purchased two separate intakes for two cars and each time has been a rewarding experience. Quick, simple installation with instant gratification and performance increase. I can now hear my turbo spool up.

Very easy to install. Be prepared to hear turbo. You will hear the air being sucked in when turbo starts to spool. Will hear blue off valve. So if you want to keep the quite, don't buy. But if you love the sounds like I do I highly recommend it.

Quality Product, car specific detailed directions and most importantly all the components and hardware were in the box. The One and only issue we had was that the rubber material that gets mounted to the outer part of the heat shield was difficult to install and had a tear in one spot prior to assembly. I believe pre-mounting the rubber gasket on the heat shield prior to shipment is an opportunity for improvement.

Great product. Improved the fuel economy on my sonic rs. The throttle response is well improved. There is very little turbo lag now. The turbo blow off is now audible and it adds a great sound effect. I recommend getting this intake over others due to the heat shield.

This intake for the 1.4L turbocharged Chevy Sonic is great. Looks awesome, sounds awesome and is holding up well. You can definitely feel an increase in throttle response. The only problem I had was the heat shield installation, getting tools in the right spot was tough. But I would definitely recommend this intake over others just because of the heat shield.
