The K&N 69-8618TS Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Toyota Camry 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 69-8618TS 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 as well as the crank case vent and vacuum hoses. 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 couple of screwdrivers, a 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.

Product Reviews


  I added this intake in hopes of some notable differences to my V6 Camry. This intake definitely added some attitude to the sound of my Camry. It's kind of annoying at first, but I'm sure that it's because I was under the impression that I was driving a luxury vehicle. After a few days, I grew to love the sound. There is also a slight improvement in low end torque and the power band in the high rpm range. The mid-range torque and power is still lacking, but I'm sure a throttle body spacer and an exhaust system could tidy that up really quick. As far as mpg's go, I was getting 28.5 mpg on the highway and I'm sitting at around 23.8 mpg in the city. Keep in mind that I typically have a heavy foot, even as a daily driver. Overall, I'm impressed with the sound and noticeable power of the intake (being one of the first intakes on the market for this Toyota). I would not refrain from recommending this product to a friend, but I definitely would not try to entice him or her from putting this on their definite shopping list. This is why I'm giving it a 3 star rating. If you have the money, then yes, buy it and you will be satisfied. Although, if you're digging between the couch cushions or saving up for weeks to buy a product of this price, then I would suggest waiting.

  Works great on my 2014.5 V6 Camry. Felt like it added at least 10 horsepower. Sounds great.
