The K&N 69-8001TWR Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Subaru Impreza WRX and WRX STI 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 69-8001TWR air intake comes with an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber 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 throttle body for a guaranteed power gain. The intake tube has an attractive wrinkle red 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 and ratchet set. 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.

Bought this for my 2002 Subaru Legacy. First off this will fit our beloved 3rd Gens!! The package comes with all the mounting gear needed to make this work. Plus it has couplers and clamps to ensure a snug fit to the breather hose and throttle body. The L brackets will help secure the heat shield. Just take your time to check fitment and overall stability. Finally our air flow sensors are MAP based so no worries with a check engine light or bad idling issues. Car background includes [brand] headers, high flow cat, and customer 2.5 cat back exhaust.

This filter went in easily to my 2002 Subaru Impreza and I can feel a nice improvement in the power and sound of the engine. It just crises right up hills now and rarely downshifts. I think the extra few horsepower gained really helped this light little car.

Best oil filter out there. I will not use any other! Thany you K&N for making such awesome products. I also have a K&N typhoon cold air intake for my 2003 Subaru Impreza WRX.
