Increase the horsepower and throttle response of your vehicle's engine with a K&N Typhoon intake system! K&N has been at the forefront of the performance industry for over three decades, producing the most widely-used filters in the professional motorsports industry. All K&N products are tested by independent labs to verify the increases in power and performance they provide.

Designed to replace the air box, filter, and inlet tract in compact sports cars, aluminum Typhoon intakes improve performance by increasing airflow to your engine. Three types are available:

  • short-ram intakes (pulls air from inside the engine compartment);
  • cold-air intakes (pulls air from outside the engine compartment);
  • complete cold-air intake systems (can be changed from cold air to short ram use for the winter months).

This Typhoon short ram intake is engineered to replace the factory air box of your 2000-02 Mazda Miata (with 1.8-liter engine). The Filtercharger® — its washable, reusable filter element — allows for the virtually unrestricted flow of cooler air to your engine. This results in improved performance — performance you can feel every time you step on the accelerator. The fluid, dynamic design also smooths out and straightens airflow — air moving in a straight line is more easily assimilated by your engine than the turbulent air typically sent by factory systems.

The Typhoon intake comes with comprehensive installation instructions — and you might be surprised how easy it is to install! To ensure that this Typhoon intake will work with your vehicle, click on "What Fits My Car?" and enter its year, make, and model in our Vehicle Selector (if you haven't already). You can also call a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000.

Important Note: K&N intakes work with your vehicle's factory computer emissions controls, and they're street legal in most states. Call K&N at 1-800-858-3333 to make sure this model has been approved for use in your state. These intakes are so effective, they're backed by K&N's impressive 10-year, million-mile limited warranty.

K&N Typhoon Short Ram

Written by: Andrew from Salem, Oregon on April 29, 2005

Since I owned a K&N filter on a previous vehicle I was glad to see that K&N has come out with their own intake system design for my 1999 Mazda Miata. I ordered the blue intake and Crutchfield shipped it right out. The intake is gorgeous and was fitted to the vehicle in about 15 minutes. The performance is stunning and the throaty howl that comes out of the engine bay at high revs is a beautiful thing indeed. As I tell my friends when they notice the strong sucking sound that comes out of the engine compartment, "This thing really sucks!", in a good way of course. I highly recommend this intake and don't think you would be disappointed in any way.
