K&N Typhoon

I'm not sure if this is a stupid question or not, but i was looking at the instruction manual for the CAI and step 21 shows the pod filter, outside of the car.. i was just wondering if it will be outside of the car or located somewhere within the bumper or something.

*EDIT*
forgot the link, here it is:

Re: K&N Typhoon

Step 21 shows how you will install the filter onto the actual intake. The only way to put the filter on is from that access/ removing the wheel and going through the wheel well liner/ or removing the front bumper. What they show is the easiest method to do it.

The filter will sit behind the bumper - just be sure to clip that bottom flap back on properly.
Not a stupid question at all if this is your first time installing an intake.

Re: K&N Typhoon

Alternatively, if you want to, the K&N Typhoon comes with tubing for both Cold Air and Short Air set-ups…..so if you find you live around too much water, you can switch to short air. The only dumb question is the one that is not asked…or is not searched for

Yeah hydrolock is a scary thing!
I would also get for a safe measure, a Dry flow filter cover, AEM makes them and so does Injen i believe, It helps repel water contact to the filter and also doesnt restrict air flow.

I installed a air bypass valve for extra safe measurement too, Just in case you ever hit a puddle, "god forbid" it doesnt ever happen. It could possibly save your motor.

The typhoon comes with a filter cover to help with preventing water from entering the system.... it shows it in the link he provided.


However the AEM bypass is something that would need to be purchased separately.

Re: K&N Typhoon

Oh okay gotcha well thats one thing covered.
However i still suggest the aem bypass if he lives in a wetter climate, "not for everywhere but in ohio weather is unpredictable" we sometimes get flash flood deals and ya wanna be safe lol. And thats also true plus gotta cut the intake in a spot for it.
Im sure he'll be fine was just throwin in 2c
