Since its introduction in 2005, the Scion tC has been the stylish and sporty option for drivers all over. The tC offers a seriously trendy external design as well as the quick and responsive handling expected from a compact coupe of this caliber. But every driver knows that it's not enough just to look fast, it actually has to be fast too. That is why K&N, leading manufacturer and innovator of aftermarket performance air filters, produced this complete air intake system for the 2011 to 2016 Scion tC with the 2.5 liter engine.

The 69-8616TS Typhoon® air intake system is a perfect performance upgrade that replaces the stock air box with this easy to install, bolt-on horsepower. By using the 69-8616TS performance air intake, you no longer have to purchase and replace dirty disposable paper air filters, potentially saving you time and money in the long run. And a long run is exactly what the 69-8616TS is built for. This system is backed with K&N's famous Million Mile Limited Warranty, offering not only a stylish look under the hood, but a lifetime of performance and engine protection.

The 69-8616TS includes a washable & reusable, oiled cotton air filter (RP-4600) that has a custom carbon fiber end-cap which adds to the overall style of the intake and weighs less than a conventional filter top. The free-flowing mandrel-bent aluminum tubing is designed to fit directly in the place of the tC's factory intake and filter housing. The 69-8616TS intake tube has a high quality finish that's made to last. K&N air intakes, like the 69-8616TS, are designed to dramatically reduce intake restriction resulting in additional power and torque. When dyno tested, the 69-8616TS improved performance by an estimated 6 horsepower at 5712rpm and 5 lb-ft. of torque at 5318rpm.

Air intake part number 69-8616TS fits the following Scion tC models with the 2.5 liter engine:

2016 Scion tC 2.5L
2015 Scion tC 2.5L
