Check Vehicle Fit

The K&N 69-6030-1TFK Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Mazda RX-8 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 69-6030-1TFK air intake comes with a K&N high-flow air filter encased within an ultra-lightweight carbon fiber housing 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 flat black finish that's made to last and it accommodates the factory mass air sensor, air straightener and several vent lines. The oversized encased 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 couple of screwdrivers, pliers, a ratchet set and several Allen 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.

    Comments about K&N Performance Intake Kit:

    So I was looking to upgrade my 2005 Mazda RX-8 GT. I used this K&N air filter to replace the oem factory air filter. I read multiple reviews on it and just figured I would try it for myself. It comes with the instructions on how to install inside of your vehicle. It had instructions for MT or AT. You don't really have to be mechanically inclined. If you would like for your car to have more noise this is definitely for you. I have a AT w/overdrive it sounds really good 4500 to 6000 rpms. Also if you drive in D it gives it a deep pitched driving noise which doesn't really bother me at all.
