Although configured differently, both G35 kits combine aluminum intake tubing with a K&N FilterCharger® filter. Mandrel-bent 6061 aluminum provides maximum airflow, and this tubing is finished in the customer's choice of a polished surface and dual-stage powdercoated red, blue and silver. Air enters the Typhoon® systems through tapered round K&N FilterChargers®. These filters feature a single velocity-stack base, a black urethane cap and a filtration area made of oil-impregnated cotton-gauze over epoxy-coated aluminum wire mesh. FilterChargers® can be cleaned and re-oiled repeatedly with a K&N cleaning kit (sold separately). K&N Typhoon hose couplings are high-quality, multi-ply DuPont® Nomex®-reinforced silicone to withstand heat and vibration. All mounting hardware is stainless steel, including the barrel clamps that secure the silicone hose.
The G35 sedan Typhoon® is a short-ram style system that attaches to the engine's mass air sensor. For the G35 coupe kit, K&N devised a complete cold air system that draws air from behind the front fascia. This kit's intake tubing includes an aluminum mass-air sensor adapter that's completely TIG-welded. Because the filter is positioned low in the engine compartment, the G35 coupe Typhoon® includes a DryCharger® wrap for protection from small amounts of water and debris. This silicon-impregnated vinyl material repels water to keep it from entering the intake tract. In extremely wet conditions, the G35 coupe Typhoon® kit can easily be converted from the cold-air configuration to a short-ram style by mounting the filter directly to the inlet tube.
