The K&N 69-6030-1TFK Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Mazda RX-8 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 69-6030-1TFK air intake comes with a K&N high-flow air filter encased within an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber housing 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 flat black finish that's made to last and it accommodates the factory mass air sensor, air straightener and several vent lines. The oversized encased 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 several Allen 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 own a 2005 RX 8 AT Grand Touring. I got my K&N Typhoon as a Xmas gift a few years ago. I read a lot about them prior to installing it on the car concerned it might negate my warranty, performance metrics,etc.Once I found out it was Mazada approved I was good to go. There is a lot written on all of the tuner blogs about whether or not performance is improved or not. My personal experience, and I'm not a tuner, nor did I dyno the car,was that I FELT, and still do, a noticeable increase in acceleration immediately. These cars are not known for bolting from a stop light and flying past a muscle car, they weren't meant to, but there is a very noticeable difference in immediate pickup from a standing start. On the road or the a wide open highway is where this thing really shines. First as mentioned by others the sound from this thing is pretty impressive. When you floor it and it starts sucking air it begins to growl and the faster you go it flat out wails. I must admit it does making the driving experience all that much more fun. I've not noticed any increase or decrease in mileage, but the fun factor has definitely gone up. It's easy to maintain, and is cost effective since you don't have to keep buying new ones (I'm about to do a clean and oil on it tonight). And it does help keep the engine cooler since there is more room for airflow around the engine compartment. It also looks pretty cool too. So what's not to like? I'm a buyer.

Wow!!! I just installed my Typhoon Air Intake System for my 04 Mazda RX-8 and I can feel the difference significantly. The acceleration was faster and the sound was so good that I turned off my radio on the way home to hear that deep roaring sound. I might not be listening to the radio for a while....Money well spent!!! Thanks K&N keep it up!!!

We just received the first K&N filter designed for my wife's 2014 Buick Encore. I put it in the car and my wife has said she already feels better throttle response with it. This is the 6th K&N filter I have used. I have installed them in all my current and past vehicles (Honda Civic, Pontiac Vibe, Scion TC, Hyundai Santa Fe, and Mazda CX-5). I find the quality top notch, and the performance better than expected.
