Restriction can exist BETWEEN an air filter and
the engine reducing the benefit of a K&N Air Filter alone. The
weakest link in the airflow chain robs a vehicle of its natural
horsepower. Often that weak point is the factory air path leading to
the Engine. K&N Air Intake Kits virtually eliminate air path
restriction by replacing the air filter and the entire air path to the
engine. The aerodynamically engineered aluminum tube drives a massive
amount of air into an engine, which translates into POWER.
77 Series kits are truly hand-crafted pieces of art. Available with
polished aluminum or gunmetal grey powder coated tubes, these kits are
sure to please in every way. They come with an oversized High-Flow
conical air filter designed to provide increased surface area and dust
capacity. This extra surface area provides even more airflow at lower
restriction than a standard K&N O/E replacement filter that is
limited to the size of the factory air box. The oversize air filter also
captures more dirt increasing the service life before each cleaning is
required (up to 100,000 miles). Most 77 Series Kits include a heat
shield designed to seal against a vehicle’s hood to isolate the air
intake from engine heat. Cooling the air that travels into the engine
can increase horsepower all by itself. All K&N metal intake kits
use adapters made from high strength materials such as silicon and
reinforced nylon and ensures long life. These kits come standard with
powder coated steel brackets.
Calif CARB notice:
Some Typhoon Air Intakes are not legal for 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 vehicle
parts search for specific CARB status. 63 Series Intakes (AirChargers)
are street legal in most states. They are not legal for use in
California and other states adopting California emission standards.
Please verify Calif. CARB status with the KN website or by calling them
direct on all air kits.
