The K&N 69-3518TS Air Intake fits some Ford Focus ST models. See vehicle applications link for details.
The K&N 69-3518TS Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Ford Focus 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 69-3518TS 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 air pressure sensor. 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, 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 vehicle applications and specific CARB status for each vehicle and air intake.

K&N 69-3518TS Air Intake Product Reviews

Monday, October 22, 2018 - Part 69-3518TS
Was easy to install and while performance gains seem to be minimal, the engine definitely breathes better and has a bit of a growl to it, under boost you can hear the BOV a lot more, overall I am very pleased.

I am very happy with this purchase, I bought mine from (Brand Name). The only thing I would like to see is a version for the ST that incorporates a port to allow the Ram air scoop to provide extra air flow. Considering that this thing gulps air like I gulp coffee at 5am, it would seriously help to keep rising intake air flow temperatures down during long pulls.

Honestly, really happy with this purchase. The instructions were relatively easy to follow along with and the installation took me just a little over an hour. This was the first upgrade I have done on my ST and encourage others ST owners to consider. You'll be impressed with the sound your turbo can make with this intake. The turbo whistle sounds great and when you let off the gas you get that awesome psh sound. Performance wise, you totally feel the car breathing more. It's like the car had asthma and the K&N intake is the inhaler. Now when I get on it the shifting has been a lot smoother. I even noticed a slightly better throttle response. 10/10 Thank you K&N!
