K&N 2011-14 Sonata/Optima 2.0L Turbo Typhoon Intake
The K&N 69-5309TS Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit 2011-2013 Hyundai Sonata and 2016-2019 KIA Optima models. 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 69-5309TS 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 turbo inlet 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 blow off valve hose, EVAP hose and crank case vent hose. 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.
