The 2012 Fiat 500 1.4 liter marks Fiat's return to the American market, a market where Fiat had not sold a new vehicle since the mid-1980s. The new 500 brings a distinct retro, Italian styling to the hatchback segment that pays homage to the model's over 50-year old heritage and pairs it with a spunky powertrain that helps the lightweight coupe get up and go with ease. Compact with snazzy styling, peppy performance, and excellent fuel efficiency - everything an Italian hatchback should be. Owners of the 2012 Fiat 500 1.4 liter can now have a guaranteed increase in horsepower and performance with the K&N 69-3303TS Typhoon performance air intake system.

The 69-3303TS is precision-designed to be a simple bolt-on replacement for the factory air intake system. It utilizes an aluminum intake tube to help streamline airflow into the engine and comes with a heat shield to protect the incoming air from heat under the hood. The 69-3303TS also adds a special heat barrier and incorporates the factory fresh air duct to further aid in air intake performance. The RC-9800 conical air filter on the inlet of the tube is oversized to help minimize restriction while still providing excellent air filtration and protection. The filter is washable and reusable and can even go for up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions.

On the dyno, the 69-3303TS produced an estimated 3.9 horsepower at 4503rpm and 4.9 pound feet of torque at 3612rpm over the factory air intake system. That's a great power increase for a 1.4 liter engine.

The 69-3303TS performance air intake system is backed by K&N's Million Mile Limited Warranty. It's easy to install with basic hand tools, maintains all necessary factory connections, and does not require any additional modifications be made to the vehicle in order to function properly.

There's a certain pizzazz in the Italian culture, a debonair energy and passion for living life to its fullest that pervades every aspect of it. That passion is alive and well in the 2012 Fiat 500 1.4 liter, and the K&N 69-3303TS Typhoon performance air intake system is a perfect performance upgrade to add that next level of energy and life to your Italian hatchback.
