The K&N 69-6540TB Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Mitsubishi Lancer 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 69-6540TB air intake comes with a black rubber topped K&N high-flow air filter 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 blue powder-coat finish that's made to last and it accommodates the factory mass air sensor and a replacement silicone crank case vent hose. 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. 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 vehicle applications and specific CARB status for each vehicle and air intake.

K&N 69-6540TB Air Intake Product Reviews

Wednesday, June 22, 2016 - Part 69-6540TB
Works good on my car. Installed it right before driving 1200 miles and had no problems with it. Sounds pretty good on high rev other then that its kinda low and can be abnoxious since the Lancer ES model is granny mode halfway through 2nd. I wouldn't mind if it was a little quiter but with the same permormance benefits. But some people want it to be as loud as possible. Oh also the blue looks pretty sweet in my engine bay. All around good working intake, easier than pie to install and really, you can install it within a few minutes if you already know what to do.
