Performance Induction Kits (or Intake Kits) come in a variety of different designs dependant on the all application and price, however they all share a common purpose. The main design feature of a Performance Induction Kit is to maximise the air flow in to the engine, this would normally mean the removal of the existing air box on the car and replacing this with some form of open or enclosed cone filter with an additional cold air feed pipe.
The benefit of this type of air filter is purely about performance increase, but you also do get a nice induction sound! The power increase comes not only from a larger volume of air in to the engine but the temperature of the air the colder the better as this helps with more efficient combustion. This is why you will find that most kits have a additional cold air pipe, that can be positioned to feed this directly in to the intake kit, while other kits will use additional pipe work to relocate the filter to a better location and away from the high temperatures close to the engine.
Part number 57-0686 is a K&N 57i series air induction system that fits 2008 to 2011 Ford Fiesta VI models with 1.25-liter, 1.4-liter, and 1.6-liter L4 engines and the 2012 Ford Fiesta VI with the 1.25-liter. This intake system replaces the potentially restrictive factory air box with a conical shaped, chrome-top, K&N high-flow, washable and reusable lifetime air filter. K&N air filters capture harmful particles, provide high airflow, and long service life.
K&N air intake systems are designed to free vehicles from the restriction of the original factory air box. This allows a virtually unrestricted flow of air to reach the engine for more power and performance when you need it. 57-0686 is designed with attachments that are vehicle specific which help direct outside air toward the air intake. K&N rolling road tests showed positive power gains.
With a K&N air intake system, consumers can count on extra horsepower whether maneuvering amongst city traffic, or winding through the countryside.
The 57-0686 air intake takes about 90 minutes or less to install and is covered by theK&N Million Mile Limited Warranty®
