K&N Press Release – 2014, 2015 Audi A4, A5, A6 Turbo Adds Horsepower & Torque from K&N Air Intake System

December 1st, 2015 by Ernest Lo


Refined performance is the trademark of German performance luxury sedans. With technologically-advanced engines, drivetrains and interiors, the driving experience is captivating on so many levels. 2014 and 2015 Audi A4, A5 and A6 2.0 liter turbo models deliver exceptionally in this arena and at a price point that doesn’t break the bank nor ding the credit card at the fuel pump. Where else can you get 220 break horsepower, fuel economy figures near 30 miles-per-gallon and all of the modern interior accoutrements at a price point lower than BMW and Mercedes? The turbocharged 4-cylinder engines in these Audis are especially peppy, though there’s always room for improvement. Help your Audi breathe easier and develop more power with a performance boost from K&N Typhoon performance air intake system, number 69-9508T.

The K&N Audi 2014-2015 A4, A5, or A6 2.0L turbo air intake is a bolt-on performance upgrade, guaranteed to increase horsepower for the Audi models listed below. K&N has been building performance parts for vehicles since 1969 and the refined performance of the 69-9508T Audi air intake showcases that legacy. At the core of the K&N Audi 2014-2015 A4, A5, or A6 2.0L turbo air intake is a K&N RU-3570 conical air filter, constructed with K&N’s famous oiled-cotton gauze filter media. Its design provides a large surface area to help increase airflow and provide long service intervals. The oiled-cotton gauze flows better than paper, allowing your engine to breathe easier, and still provides excellent engine protection. The filter is washable and reusable and can go up to 100,000 miles (~160,000 km) between cleanings, depending on driving conditions.

Shrouding the K&N performance air filter is a heat shield to protect air entering the engine from radiant heat under the hood, as well as a replacement fresh air duct to funnel cooler air from outside the vehicle through the filter and into the turbocharger. The air filter is attached to the factory mass airflow sensor, which is then attached to a replacement turbo-inlet hose. All required factory connections are maintained with the K&N 69-9508T Typhoon Audi 2014-2015 A4, A5, or A6 2.0L turbo air intake system.

The turbocharged 4-cylinder engines in these Audi models react especially well to the K&N 69-9508T air intake system when it comes to performance gains. On the dyno, a 2014 Audi A5 2.0 liter turbo equipped with the K&N Audi 2014-2015 A4, A5, or A6 2.0L turbo air intake produced an estimated additional 15.4 horsepower at 3600 rpm and 17.7 pound feet of torque at 3000 rpm to the wheels. Check out the dyno chart to see the performance increase over stock.

The 69-9508T is an easy-to-install performance upgrade and K&N covers it with a 10-year/million mile limited warranty and Consumer Protection Pledge. A refined performance automobile should only be entrusted to upgrades that have an equally refined performance pedigree. Give your Audi a boost in horsepower and torque with the K&N 69-9508T Typhoon performance air intake system.

Owners of the Audi 2014-2015 A4, A5, or A6 2.0L turbo models can enjoy increased horsepower and torque by installing the K&N 69-9508T Typhoon air intake system.

Mishimoto Press Release – The New RX-8 Oil Line Kit: Keep Your Oil in Check

November 27th, 2015 by Ernest Lo


The Mazda RX-8 has a high-winding rotary engine capable of easily reaching 9,000 RPMs on a daily basis. With those revs comes very high oil temperatures. Most RX-8 models with manual transmissions were outfitted with dual oil coolers from the factory to keep the rotary engine’s oil at a safe temperature during high speed driving and track situations. Unfortunately, over time, the stock rubber oil lines and steel fittings can severely corrode and degrade over time. This full kit from Mishimoto replaces all the RX-8 oil cooler lines with braided stainless units and aluminum fittings that will not corrode or degrade over time. This oil line kit also replaces the most frequent line to corrode, which is located on the left hand side of the car near the front suspension assembly.

With Mishimoto replacement Mazda RX-8 oil cooler lines, all oil lines between the engine and both oil coolers are replaced, including the intermediate line that spans both oil coolers found in all manual transmission models. These Mazda RX-8 oil cooler lines fit onto the vehicle with no additional modification, and d not require any cutting to your vehicle or permanent removal of parts. This oil line kit comes with all banjo bolts, M18 fittings, and a male to male -10AN connector to complete the installation. Keep your RX-8 protected and running smooth! As with all our products, these RX-8 oil cooler lines include the Mishimoto Lifetime Warranty.

AEM Press Release – 2015 Ford Mustang V6 Gets More Horsepower and Torque With An AEM Cold Air Intake

November 24th, 2015 by Ernest Lo


The Ford Mustang pioneered the pony car segment in 1964 as a 1965 model and has been a top-selling thoroughbred for Ford ever since. This icon of automotive history has gone through many design and personality changes over the last 50 years and the 2015 Ford Mustang is arguably one of the biggest milestones in its legacy. The 2015 Ford Mustang offers a nod to yesteryear while galloping into the future.

The 2015 Mustang V6 fastback, and 2015 Mustang V6 convertible comes with a snorting 300 horsepower 3.7-liter power plant up front, a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission with paddle shifters in the middle and a limited-slip differential in the rear. The Mustang rides on an all-new independent rear suspension for a refined, but sporty, ride on par with a premium European car. A Mustang, by nature, needs to run free. One way to help the 2015 Ford Mustang V6 gallop away from the competition is with the addition of AEM Induction Systems’ 2015 Mustang V6 cold air intake system 21-755C.

The 21-755C AEM Mustang cold air intake system is designed to increase horsepower and torque on the 2015 Ford Mustang 3.7 liter V6. A high-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube replaces the corrugated factory tube to help smooth and streamline airflow into the engine. Provisions are made for the factory vent connections, for both manual and automatic transmission models, with the performance designed AEM intake tube.

On the inlet of the air intake tube is an AEM washable DryFlow® air filter 21-2148DK. This filter utilizes AEM’s lofted synthetic filter media to help minimize restriction as well as provide excellent air filtration efficiency. Another benefit of the AEM air filter media is that it’s washable and reusable, and can go for up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions. The filter is shrouded by a precision-fit, application specific, air filter heat shield to help keep radiant hot air under the hood from entering the engine. Cooler air is denser and thus provides more efficient combustion.

When it comes to performance air intake systems, design is only as useful as the resulting performance gains. AEM performs multiple over the road, and dynamometer tests to ensure that the AEM 21-755C 2015 Mustang cold air intake system will live up to AEM’s reputation. On the dyno, the 21-755C AEM cold air intake produced an estimated 8 horsepower and 10 pound-feet of torque at 4000 rpm at the rear wheels of an otherwise stock a 2015 Ford Mustang 3.7 liter V6.

The 21-755C AEM 2015 Mustang V6 cold air intake is an easy to install performance upgrade and is backed by AEM’s Limited Lifetime Warranty. The pony car that started it all, especially the new 2015 model, is turning heads with its performance and styling and an AEM 21-755C cold air intake system can help put your stallion one stride ahead of the herd.
