From the outside the Honda Fit is a subcompact with good handling for a car of its class. The Fit is beginning to build a fan base in the United States after tooling around roads in Europe and Asia for some time. The small power train also produces big benefits at the gas pump.

K&N Engineering has released a 69-Series Typhoon Air Intake (69-1016-1TS) for the 2007 and 2008 Honda Fit 1.5 liter engine in powder coated silver. The design of the vehicle played a major role in the development and design. "We made sure that the intake system followed the lines of the Honda Fit," said K&N Project Technician Nestor Cabrera. "There is symmetry between the K&N Typhoon Kit and the engine compartment."

K&N dynamometer tests show a 5.72 horsepower gain @ 5850 RPM for this Typhoon Intake. "We incorporated the factory intake air temperature sensor with our K&N High Flow Air Filter (RU-5163)," said Cabrera. "The K&N Air Filter was designed especially for the Fit's 1.5 liter engine. The heat shield isolates the K&N Air Filter from the engine compartment and keeps the air around it cooled."

It takes about an hour to install this Typhoon Intake Kit with simple hand tools. K&N Typhoon Systems are designed to improve engine performance along with under the hood visual appeal.
