We all know the performance parts industry was developed by guys that modified their cars because they could, not because they had to. Here at K&N we keep that same spirit by taking something that is good and making it better, just because we can. The R&D department at K&N has liberated airflow on 2011 to 2013 Hyundai Elantra models by modifying and improving the air intake path.

By freeing up the airflow with the 69-5303TS air intake system we're allowing your car the ability to increase its power. Using a chassis dyno we've tested the 2011 Hyundai Elantra with a 1.8L engine and estimate it will gain an additional 5.6 horsepower at 5,383 RMP. In addition to the increase in horsepower we estimate this air intake will add 3.72 lb-ft of torque at 4775 RPM. Not too shabby considering this intake can usually be installed in less than ninety minutes.

Not only is this air intake designed to increase power, it looks good while doing it. K&N's 69-5303TS compliments the sleek look of Hyundai's engine bay with a high-quality performance intake tube with a silver colored finish. The whole air intake is backed by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty. The mandrel bent aluminum tubing has a high quality powder coat finish. Our powder coats are applied using charged powder particles that adhere to the electrically grounded surface of the intake tube until the powder is heated and fused into a smooth coating in the curing oven. This finish is highly durable and resistant to scratches, chipping, fading and general wear.

In addition to the highly durable finish, drivers can rest assured that this intake was designed to work perfectly with the vehicle's factory electronic components. One side of the intake tube features a vent fitting for a hose that connects to a port on the valve cover that keeps the CCV system vented.

On the end of this air intake is one of our famous high-flow air filters, part number RU-4600. This filter is made with an oiled cotton gauze media that has incredible air flow and dust capacity. What makes K&N air filters great is that they increase increase the air flow and dust capacity of the filter without sacrificing filtration efficiency. If you are driving in extremely dusty conditions we offer air filter wrap part number 22-8036PK that can be placed around the outside of the filter for a longer service interval.

Service intervals for this air filter vary depending on driving conditions. Of course if you're driving in an extremely dusty environment the filter will need to be cleaned more than usual but if you are driving on typically paved streets and freeways the filter will be able to go up to 100,000 miles before cleaning and re-oiling is needed. When servicing does become necessary you can purchase K&N Recharge Kit number 99-5000 or 99-5050.

The 69-5303TS air intake system fits the following applications:

2013 Hyundai Elantra Gt 1.8L L4
2013 Hyundai Elantra Coupe 1.8L L4
