The Apollo Cold Air Induction System is designed to bring cooler air to your intake system. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen, and cooler engine air inlet temperatures result in more power. The Apollo system works on any vehicle because it features its own filter/housing unit. Simply remove the stock airbox and then connect the Apollo unit to the vehicles intake hose or air flow meter. K&N offers a range of adapters to facilitate this connection. Then connect the cold air hose to the Apollo and position the other end behind the grille. The Apollo unit and hose should be secured in position. In the event of inclement weather, reposition the cold air hose to prevent water intake.
The Apollos specially designed shape increases volumetric efficiency and provides the benefits of an open cone filter and standard airbox in one unit. Heat buildup is reduced, which keeps the intake charge cool. Smooth internal features minimize air turbulence and maximize airflow. The outer shell of the Apollo is made of a lightweight, durable material that helps keep the incoming air charge cool. It has a 70 mm base flange, however a selection of adapters is supplied with the Apollo, so all hoses that were connected to the OEM airbox can be attached to the Apollo unit. The unique Apollo K&N air filter features a large increase in filter area over the stock airbox filter, resulting in a huge increase in airflow and a greater capacity to capture and hold dirt. The filter is easily accessed by removing the 8 bolts and separating the housing and flange sections. The K&N filter can go up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is required. And the K&N air filter is guaranteed for one million miles.129.34Brand: K&N Part Number: RC-5052AB UPC: 024844181053

Installed the unit last weekend. The installation instructions could have been better. The bag of parts was not clearly labeled. Once that was straightened out, it was a simple installation. The product has made a difference in performance and sound.Was this review helpful for you?

I only have one thong to say, WOW! What a difference it has made compared to the factory intake that came with my car. Not only is a greater volume of air going into the engine but it is cutting down my fuel cost. I am seeing about 15 to 23 horsepower difference and an increase in gas mileage from 26 MPG to 30/31 on the highway. I definitely recommend this part.Was this review helpful for you?

I absolutely love my K&N cold air intake. Install took me about 3 hours because I had never done anything like it before but I didn't run into any problems. It looks great, sounds amazing, gave my truck a deeper sound, it feels faster, better response and in one day I gained about two mpg. I probably will gain more after a couple weeks.Was this review helpful for you?

I could not be happier, the cold air intake system was a snap to install and the sound and performance boost was unbelieveable. I really do not know why I hesitated to purchase. All I can do is tell you that K&N makes a great product. Thanks again.Was this review helpful for you? YesNo(5)APPEARANCEEASE OF INSTALLATIONPRICE/VALUEQUALITYK&NŽ Typhoon Intake Kit.

The intake arrived on time as promised. I installed it on my 2007 Saturn Sky, 2.4L. The installation was very easy and only took about 1.5 hours. I love the way it looks, really opens up the engine compartment now that all that plastic is gone. I feel the performance is much better especially at higher RPM's and the sound is outstanding.Was this review helpful for you?
