K&N Engineering has released a new 69-Series Typhoon Air Intake (69-1013TS) in powder coated silver for the 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 Honda Civic equipped with a 1.8 liter engine. The vehicle design played a major roll in the development and design of this Intake Kit. "Special care was taken to ensure that the Intake System followed the Civics lines," said K&N Project Technician Nestor Cabrera. "Our kit will not obstruct or rub against other parts in the engine compartment."

K&N dynamometer tests show a 5.7 horsepower gain @ 5700 RPM for this Typhoon Intake. "The horsepower gain is exceptional for this size engine," said Cabrera.

"There is symmetry between 69-1013TS and the engine compartment. We designed the heat shield with provisions for the factory fresh air duct so that the filter (RU-4960) could receive a consistent flow of fresh cool air."

It takes about an hour to install this kit with simple hand tools. K&N Typhoon Systems improve both engine performance and under the hood aesthetics.
