The K&N 69-6540TP 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 69-6540TP 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 chrome-like 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. The tools needed are a ratchet set, needle nose pliers 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.

I got your filter from your Hong Kong dealer Wilco Group limited and I had it installed on my 1983 Mitsubishi Lancer. It fits and works perfectly,,,,  please continue manufacturing filters specially for old cars from the 80's..   K & N more power to you....
you're the best...

My wife and I will not purchase another air filter from anybody but K&N. As soon as as I knew how well your air filters worked it took me a couple of years to convince my wife who at that time only relied on her Father's advice. 5 cars later she will put nothing but a K&N air filter in our cars and neither will her father. My wife has even gone to the point of her excessive frugalness to buy one even 2 days after she purchased her new car and took it in for a check up. They put a new filter in then 2 days later you guys came out with 1 for her car and she bought it. The whole time after purchasing the car, her day by day checking to see if you had made a filter for her 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer GT. I have never in my life seen her wait so expectantly for anything to come out on any kind of market food, chef, Make-up, kitchen appliance, ETC as she did your product. I have never been so flabbergasted by anything in my life. I owe it all to your products. Thank you for many years of quality and enjoyment from my vehicles. Please don't stop.

Went from a stock paper filter to a K&N air filter in my 2004 Mitsubishi Lancer ES. There is absolutely no hesitation with how my car responds now. I ran max A/C with fan speed in high, used fully synthetic oil, and the car still accelerated like a missile on the street. The engine is only a 2.0L 4 cylinder 120 HP non-turbo cast iron engine. Barely touched the gas and the car responded instantly even with a full load on the engine with four people. Mitsubishi recommends filter change every 30000 Miles, but with K&N you don't have to clean it till 80,000-100,000 miles on the filter. Much easier to get peak MPG at least, and yes a I drive a lot in the city and now top out at 24-33 MPG and 35-42 MPG on highway depending how I drive. The use of a stock or cold air K&N filter with fully synthetic oil will more than pay for them self.
