The K&N 69-8700TP Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Lexus IS300 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 69-8700TP 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 chrome-like finish that's made to last and it accommodates the factory mass air sensor and crank case vent hose as well as a replacement silicone EVAP line. 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 several 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


I have a 2002 IS300 Lexus. I installed the Typhoon 69-8700 kit several months ago. Prior to installing the kit my gas mileage on trips was maximum of 23.8. I just made a 1679 mile trip where my average was 25.3 for the entire trip, the highest was 27.08 and lowest of 22.94, speeds of 60 to 80 MPH.

I have used this air filter on my 1995 Lexus SC400 without any ill effects (this is in response to the other review). I use K&N filters on all three of my vehicles and have noticed some fuel economy improvement. I have never done any performance testing. K&N air filters will pay for themselves in the long run and keep throwaway air filters out of our landfills. These are good products and I have used K&N filters for over a decade.

Replaced the stock filter with this product in the Lexus. Better throttle response along with improved gas milage.
