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.

Looks great on my SHO. I noticed a difference right away when the turbos start pulling air.

I put this cold Air Intake on my 2015 Ford Explorer Sport 3.5 Twin Turbos. This Intake brought turbo's to life plus I have gained 2 miles to the gallon on the road. My engine sounds better and you can really hear the Turbo's working. Thank You K&N

Purchased mainly because I enjoy hearing the turbo sounds when accelerating. It sounds awesome! The SHO is well shielded and not nearly as loud as my previous car with one of these intakes (Veloster Turbo). Hard to tell the seat of the pants HP increase, because I installed cat-back exhaust at the same time. But I dig it, and as always theres a great fit and finish on the K&N product. Nicely done.

Easy to install, very good instructions. I have not seen any savings at the gas tank, but did not purchase the kit for that anyway. I like the product and do feel some improved performance

The filter itself came faster than it was supposed to (2 days instead of 3) and the UPS guy just left it on the porch out in the open... so that was nice... not K&Ns fault though. Had it installed by the weekend. Not too many parts and easy to install. It's amazing, my car sounds so much better. I don't notice a difference in the HP but you wouldn't notice anyway. The only downfall is that I can feel the delay before my turbo kicks in even more now. My boyfriend also says he's noticed shakiness and differences in the way the car drives. Can't tell if that's from the intake or not yet.
