The K&N 69-3531TS Air Intake fits some Ford Explorer, Ford Explorer Sport, Ford Flex, and Ford Taurus SHO models. See vehicle applications link for details.
The K&N 69-3531TS Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system. The restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing are replaced by the K&N Typhoon air intake which is designed to dramatically reduce air flow restriction as it smoothes and straightens air flow. This allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air than the factory air intake. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine’s RPM range. The 69-3531TS air intake comes with a chrome topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield that installs into the previous air box space. Air is directed through the intake tube into the engine’s throttle body for a guaranteed power gain. The intake tube has an attractive silver powder-coat finish that's made to last and it accommodates the factory air temperature sensor. The oversized cone shaped air filter can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install usually in 90 minutes or less using existing factory mounting points. The tools needed are a screwdriver, ratchet set and several wrenches. Some Typhoon air intakes are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are CARB exempt and 50 state legal. Check the K&N catalog or website for vehicle applications and specific CARB status for each vehicle and air intake.

K&N 69-3531TS Air Intake Product Reviews

Great and not to bad to install.

Extremely clean and easy install. Fuel mileage is unchanged at worst. Might have a touch more response at the lower end of revs. Sounds great. Only hiccup noticed is that it seems to take the computer a few days of driving to figure out the lower vacuum pressure upstream of the turbos. First couple days under low RPM boost situations it seemed to want to build and dump pressure erratically under consistent throttle feed. Seems the system has caught up with itself and doesn't do it at all now.

The intake went on quite easily and the instructions were easy to follow. The intake looks and sounds good. You wouldn't really know that there is anything different on there until you put your foot into the throttle. That's when you can really hear the amount of air that the twin turbos is pulling in. Fuel mileage is a bit better. I'm seeing close to 1.5 mpg difference so far. As for power, I really haven't had the opportunity to get on it to find out if things are different but the engine definitely feels smoother at lower speeds.

Well it's amazing! Need I say more... lol! I love the sound when accelerating. I haven't noticed much difference on gas mileage, maybe 3mpg, but the performance is better. I have the 2013 SHO with performance package. I would put a picture on here but it keeps saying file too big. I give it 5 stars because it is as advertised. Thanks K&N for great products.

This fit my 2017 Ford Explorer Sport 3.5L Ecoboost. There is a noticeable performance difference. Did not change much in the way of engine sound, just a cool air sucking noise that can be heard in the cabin. I'm happy with this product.

Bought this for my 2015 SHO and noticed increased HP, but the sound it makes when sucking in all the extra air is awesome.
