Along with good looks comes additional performance for the engine. K&N dynamometer tests show an 8.09 horsepower gain for the 2007 Scion tC at 5466 RPM. The mandrel bent tube ensures incoming air has a smooth unrestricted path to the engine.

The factory fresh air duct routes outside air to the inside area of a powder coated steel heat shield, directly toward the K&N lifetime round tapered universal air filter (RU-4860). This allows the engine to breathe more efficiently, resulting in an immediate power gain over the factory system.

The RU-4860 mounts within the heat shield, and provides virtually unrestricted airflow as it provides superior filtration. Washable and reusable, this K&N air filter can go up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is required.

The 69-8614TS has lower restriction than the factory air box, is designed to improve engine performance and is easy to install, usually in 90 minutes or less. All you need for installation are a couple screwdrivers, a socket set, pliers and an allen wrench. An illustrated instruction sheet is included to help guide you through each step.

The entire intake system is covered by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty
