Built for performance and show, the 69 Series Typhoon™ Air Intake System is a free-flowing mandrel-bent aluminum tube induction system designed to fit many sport compact performance vehicles. Typhoon intake tubes have a high quality finish that's made to last. K&N intake systems replace your vehicle's restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing. K&N intakes are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction resulting in additional power and torque. All of them come with K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty and are guaranteed to increase horsepower. Some Typhoon Air Intakes are not legal for 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 vehicle parts search for specific CARB status.

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,
Dave Harwood, Asheville, North Carolina

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!
