I figured I would finally make a thread about my K&N Typhoon 69-8610TTK Cold Air Intake but there won't be much information here about the install as it has been quite a long time since then. What I can say is I've had no issues with it since I've installed it except the bracket that holds the intake tube to the engine block broke. This caused me to get a P0101:Mass Air Flow Circuit Range/Performance. I was able to contact K&N and they sent me a replacement bracket and I've not had the code since then. What I suspect happen was that when the engine was under heavy load that shifting would cause the engine to shake so the intake tube would move just enough from the hose that it would allow some unmetered air.
I've included a small part of my spreadsheet to show how long I have had it, the amount of times I've recharged the air filter, the codes, and other bits of information. I will note that I had have the P0101 a couple of times beforehand, I had just not noted it down.
Regardless of what people say, I quite like my cold air intake because it sounds great and it is well protected. It has the heat shield to prevent as much heated air from getting in and it still uses the air inlet to get some of that cold air. I do suspect it is likely I lost some MPG but not to the extent that it is bad, if anything vehicle age has to do with it too. I had replaced the K&N oiled pod filter with a AEM dry pod filter but the AEM was damaged when I got into my car accident. I do plan on getting another AEM but I don't plan to get it until I need to recharged the K&N.
I had done an oil analysis some time after I got my AEM pod filter and evidently the K&N oil didn't do much so my oil analysis report came out with no notable issues. Since I do have the K&N pod filter back on, I will likely get another oil analysis either on my next oil change or the one after.
