K&N Announces Typhoon® Intake Systems For The Ford Focus

RIVERSIDE, CA – The Ford Focus immediately took the world by storm upon its introduction for the 2000 model year. Innovative styling allows the Focus to blend in on highways and byways at all four of the planet's corners. While some Focus owners consider the car elegant base transportation, others look at it as raw material for customizing and personalizing.

K&N grants these enthusiasts one of their wishes with new Typhoon® Intake Systems. Two applications are available: one for the 130-HP 2.0L Zetec engine (Part # 69-3510, which carries the CARB EO# D-269-27) and a system for the 170-HP SVT Focus (Part # 69-3511). Performance testing on a Dynojet 248 dynamometer showed that the SVT kit produced a 9-HP increase in drive-wheel power and the regular Focus Zetec Typhoon® system generated an extra 5 HP at the front wheels.

As with all other Typhoon systems, each Focus kit begins with a high-flow K&N Filtercharger®. These dual velocity-stack-style filters are made of K&N's famous oil-impregnated gauze material, which is layered between epoxy-coated aluminum wire mesh. The filter can be repeatedly cleaned and re-oiled with a K&N Recharger Kit (sold separately), and it's backed by the K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty. An XStream air flow top further improves airflow and extends cleaning intervals.

Typhoon® systems improve both engine performance and underhood aesthetics. The kit's free flowing, mandrel-bent, 6061 aluminum, short-ram induction tube is available in four finishes: polished aluminum and dual-stage powdercoated red, blue and silver. Step-by-step instructions make Typhoon® installation easy for the do-it-yourselfer; no drilling is required.
