The K&N 69-8250TS Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Volkswagon Bora, Golf IV and Seat Leon 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 69-8250TS 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 throttle body 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, breather hose and 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 screwdriver, pliers, 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.

Customer Feedback

Dear K&N,

I own a 2002 Volkswagen Bora 1.9 TDi Sport 150 with 85,000 miles on the clock. It's a high miler as I use it pretty much every day for work and I need to travel about rather a lot. The car is pretty quick but had developed a flat spot around the 800 to 1800rpm spot. In an effort to fix it, I purchased one of your replacement air filters (P/N 33-2128). It arrived yesterday and despite the rain, I went out and fitted it straight away, removing the extremely grotty original filter plus general muck and leaves from the air box in the process. And, of course, went out for a test drive to see if it had worked.

So, did it fix the flat spot? Hell, yes! It also enormously improved throttle responsiveness and there was a very noticeable increase in power with much better acceleration. My Bora felt like the sporty diesel it should have been in the first place! I managed to scare myself silly by activating the traction control system in *4th* while accelerating out of a corner. Now, that has *never* happened before!

I definitely recommend fitting one of your filters and only wish I'd done it earlier. Now, how do I claim for soiled underwear ..? :)

Thanks K&N!

P.S. Why aren't your filters fitted as standard equipment?

The 71-1561, 2009-2014 Ram 1500 and 2013-2014 Ram 2500 V8-5.7L HEMI, is a great mod for your RAM with instant results The instructions were good but some points I would like to share. I installed this induction system Friday the 13th of June, 2014. UPDATE: Re-installed on my 2015 RAM Sport Reference the IAT, Inlet Air Temperature, sensor two things to note. (1) Handle with care and confirm no debris on the end of the sensor, my application was blue in color. (2) Orientation of the IAT sensor should be in line with the flow of air inside the tube. Just take note how the IAT is positioned on the OEM intake tube when removing. I applied a very small amount of petroleum jelly on the oring, confirm you seat the IAT fully into the grommet and in the correct orientation. As far as the intake tube fitting many are complaining that they have broken, stating is cheap, etc., contacted K&N, which they have replaced for no charge great customer service BTW But if you follow the instructions it states the following: Plastic NPT (National Pipe Thread?) fittings are easy to cross thread. Install the vent fitting 'hand' tight then turn it two complete turns with a wrench. I used the box end with no problems/issues. The fitting will show approximately 3 threads left and I feel installers observe this and crank it down & snap the fitting. Bottom line of course is to take the time to read the instructions completely, then confirm parts and organize, then start with step 1 and have fun. Make it a slow process and enjoy the moment of your installation of your new mod Then as you stand back admiring your work, treat yourself to your favorite beverage.

Fast delivery. When I've put it I've start immediately the engine and went for a ride, this air filter gave more reactivity into my seat; for it's a very good surprise cause my normal mode is now as the sports mode. So it's working well, I'm just waiting to see if that' gonna save the fuel economy.
