GO WITH THE FLOW

THE K&N Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminium tube air induction system designed to fit 2015 and ’16 Mustang GT 5.0L V8 models. The Typhoon intake dramatically reduces airflow restriction compared to the factory version, which means more useable power and acceleration throughout the engine’s rpm range, and a louder and more aggressive induction sound during acceleration.

The kit comes with a chrome-topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield that installs into the original air box space. For more info call Rocket on 0414 409 333 or visit www.rocketind.com.
