The K&N 69-8600TR Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Toyota Corolla, Toyota Matrix XR and Pontiac Vibe 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 69-8600TR 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 red powder-coat finish that's made to last and it accommodates the factory mass air sensor and a replacement silicone EVAP OBD canister closed valve 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 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 my 2014 Mazda 3 S 2.5 in April and immediately replaced the paper filter with a K&N filter. However I had been thinking of replacing the intake with a High Performance Intake unit. I checked with the Service Manager at my dealer to see if there would be any warranty issues. He said that it would not impact any warranty coverage (although he suggested that I could replace the K&N unit with the original air intake if there was a factory recall on the fuel system). I found this kit really easy to install. The photo instructions were well detailed and easy to follow. I was amazed at the length of the original factory unit. From the 5 inch slot opening it takes a 90 degree turn, goes down 20 inches into the fenderwell, does a 180 and goes back up another 20 inches to the bottom of the airbox. The K&N unit occupies the same space as the factory airbox and is a short 12 inch run to the engine. As I said it was an easy, follow the step/photo installation. The use of the factory air sensor meant there was no recalibration or special tuning required. I just started the engine, checked all of the fittings and clamps to be sure there was no leakage, shut the hood, took a short test drive and it was good to go. You can easily feel the performance increase, especially with the 2.5 liter engine's automatic in sport mode. My brother, who used to sell Mazdas, drove the car before the upgrade and after. He agreed that the performance increase was very noticeable. Plus we both found the very deep intake growl (most noticeable in the Sport mode) to be a blast. It can be intrusive, but isn't anywhere as noticeable when your driving in the normal mode, so this isn't an issue for me. I stopped at my dealer and 3 of the salesmen wanted to see and hear the KN Typhoon. They all loved it and they plan to talk to the Parts Manager about making the kit something that he offers rather than the current I can get one for you which is what he told me when I asked about K&N products. I wanted the kit right away so I checked availability at the O'Reilly Auto store's website (very big in Minnesota). They listed a K&N Typhoon kit. However when I checked with the K&N website the part number they had listed was shown by K&N as for the 2004-2012 Toyota Corolla. So if you want to get a Typhoon kit through your local dealer, be sure to go to the K&N site first to be sure that you get the correct part number. All in all I can highly recommend both the K&N Typhoon Performance kit and ordering directly from K&N. Both exceeded my expectations.

I was very glad to find exactly the filter I needed for my 2009 Pontiac Vibe. I went to a local auto parts supplier prior to purchasing through K&N. However, the auto parts store did not have what I was looking for and I would have to go through the auto dealer. Fortunately, while searching the web for what I wanted, I saw the K&N web site. Perfect! I was able to order and receive the reusable engine filter for my car. It arrived in a few days and now I am so happy to know about K&N! I also referred my son to the site for his car filter needs. Great service!

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.
