The best thing about K&N Typhoon intakes is how diverse they are. Although they are designed to fit sport compact vehicles, they can be had in either a short ram intake, cold air intake, or a combination of both which allows the user complete control. This K&N intake uses mandrel bends to avoid any air flow restrictions and looks very pleasing under the hood.
These K&N air intakes are designed to increase both horsepower and torque on sports compact performance vehicles who want a little extra boost from their engine. They are also the most affordable upgrade in terms of performance auto parts.
Each K&N typhoon air intake comes with a K&N filter to protect your engine. This filter can last up to 100,000 miles before needing to be serviced, unlike other cheap filters which need to be replaced after 10,000 miles. Once this performance air intake is installed, you and your vehicle will both reap the benefits.
The K&N short ram intake will produce a louder sound during acceleration over the cold air intake because of the shorter piping, but is also much easier to install. The cold air intake system takes longer to install and the filter is located towards the bottom of the front bumper to suck in the coolest air possible.
For those of you that are looking for some weight reductions, the K&N intake would be perfect since the factory air box is much heavier. The filter is heavier than the aluminum piping itself, but the combined weight is much lighter than the factory air intake.
