Is there such a thing as an aftermarket CAI to boost HP for the Crosstour?

Yes, but they are expensive. I'm working with a fabricator to come up with a better solution

Found a K&N Typhoon INtake: #69-1210TS that I'm going to try.
This must be the one you guys are talking about since it's $385 CDN, but I've had their Typhoon Intakes b4 and liked them.

So I'm going to jump in -- I'll let you know after the install. Don't get the car until tomorrow (Thursday) morning...

Got the car yesterday, and the K&N intake installed today -- haven't driven it yet and Photobucket is f'd up right now so can't upload pics but will soon.
Install went fairly well -- couple snags with OEM clamps on OEM intake tube at the MAF sensor -- hex nuts too small to get at and clamped on the wrong side to get at easily but got them off with some effort.
Typhoon kit was complete and easily installed took me about 1.5 hrs.
Not sure yet if I lost any radio presets or window functions.. will see in an hour or so when I go out again.

Typhoon was $385 CDN + 13% tax so not cheap but I've had one b4 on a G35Coupe and liked it so expect that this will be good too.

Pics ASA Photobucket gets their act together.

Just drove it for a while and the intake sounds amazing. Cruising there's no noise but step on it and it howls so sweet.......
Well worth the price of admission.
Power increase? Can't tell but the literature promises 10.5.

That sound tho, I love it.

No luck with photobucket. new members must have to wait for effective membership --not sure.

here's a few thumbnails for the moment until I can upload better size.

Looks like 20KB is all that's allowed for upload here.

Took me a total of about 1 hr. But taking the battery right out wasn't easy since it's so heavy and hard to grab while it's in the tray and protectors.
The next issue was the OEM clamps on the intake duct. They have very small bolts to unscrew and they were located on the wrong side of the intake for easy removal.:rolleyes: Thankfully the kit included new normal screw/bolt clamps.

The intake itself has excellent workmanship. Parts are powder coated and fit perfectly. All the pieces were there. Only thing they could have put in was a proper sized allen key to tighten the supplied screws for the MAF sensor. I think it is 2.5mm but the oem screws could have been used in a pinch.

With basic skills and a little time, the install is cake. no worries. You'll do fine. The instructions supplied are very explicit and easily followed should you need them.

The results are outstanding: The Typhoon really woke up the intake and made the exhaust sound a little better too. To my mind well worth the investment. Can't tell if it added any power. The promised 10.2 ponies is hard to read with the butt dyno.

Colin.

Cool mod! But i have to ask, wouldn't doing this procedure void the warranty on the engine?
