The K&N 69-8605TS Typhoon cold-air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Toyota Scion XB models. The restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing are replaced by the K&N Typhoon cold-air intake which is designed to pull in relatively cooler air and dramatically reduce air flow restriction by smoothing and straightening air flow. This allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of denser air than the factory air intake. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine’s RPM range. The 69-8605TS cold-air intake consists of a black rubber topped K&N high-flow air filter that mounts near the driver side wheel well directing cooler outside air through a free-flowing aluminum intake tube that delivers high volumes of clean, colder air 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. The cold-air intake system accommodates the factory mass air sensor and crank case vent hose. The oversized cone shaped air filter comes with a blue water repellent DryCharger filter wrap to protect the filter from moisture. The air filter can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed depending on driving conditions. This cold air intake is relatively easy to install usually in 90 minutes or less using existing factory mounting points. The tools needed are a couple of screwdrivers, a 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.

Whoooosh! That pretty much sums up the results of the cold air intake installation on my new 2006 Scion XB.  The installation was easy and took about an hour and I was moving slowly to double-check everything for clearance and proper alignment.  It looks great under the hood, and I know that I have picked up the full 8.1 horsepower boost that the detail sheet said that I would on this car.  It will get rubber in second gear!  Third gear passing power is way up!  And the gas mileage (which was already great) increased by almost four MPG at the time of the last fill up!  I'm running gas mileage in the realm of 40+ MPG!  It is truly hard to believe that the automakers don't use these units on their cars and add $500.00 to $800.00 to the retail sticker!  They're missing out on the full potential of their cars and profit margins.  Oh well, their loss is literally our gain.  Don't hesitate to buy and install a K&N cold air intake on you car.  Compared to the gain in HP and MPG the cost is very minimal.  And the service department was great, too!  Very rare these days to get info from people who actually listen and care.

Many Thanks,

I currently have the same filter in my 2009 Scion XB and purchased an additional one to swap out in between changes.

All seems to be well at this point.  

Thank you.

I have installed the Typhoon intake system on my 2008 Scion XB. The difference is remarkable. As I accelerate the car just keeps pulling and pulling. My gas mileage will suffer because I'll be punching it whenever I can. Get yours as soon you can, it's well worth it, and a great improvement in your car's performance!
