This stage kit includes: 


  1. K&N intake
  • The K&N 69-4524TS Typhoon air intake system is a free-flowing, mandrel-bent aluminum tube air induction system designed to fit some Chevrolet Sonic models. The restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing are replaced by the K&N Typhoon air intake which is designed to dramatically reduce air flow restriction as it smoothes and straightens air flow. This allows your engine to inhale a larger amount of air than the factory air intake. More air means more usable power and acceleration throughout the engine’s RPM range. The 69-4524TS air intake comes with a black rubber topped K&N high-flow air filter and a heat shield that installs into the previous air box space. Air is directed through the intake tube into the engine’s turbo inlet for a guaranteed power gain. The intake tube has an attractive silver powder-coat finish that's made to last and it accommodates the factory mass air sensor. The oversized cone shaped air filter can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed depending on driving conditions. This air intake is relatively easy to install usually in 90 minutes or less using existing factory mounting points. The tools needed are a screwdriver, ratchet set and some wrenches. Not for sale or street use in CA or CARB states.

  • Guaranteed to increase horsepower
  • Designed to improve throttle response and engine sound
  • Low restriction aluminum tube
  • Easy to install, usually in 90 minutes or less
  • Lasts up to 100,000 miles before service is required (depending on driving conditions)
  • Replaces stock air intake system
  • Washable and reusable lifetime air filter
  • K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty


  1. BNR custom tuning with handheld

  • BNR Tunes are the most powerful tunes available for the 1.4T engines. Turn up the boost with our custom tuning services and see gains of +20HP/TQ all the way up to +55WHP/+120WTQ. From mild to wild, we can deliver the tune you want for any situation. Eco tuning, E85, Meth, Race Fuel, we can tune it all. On 104 Octane we've seen as high as 196WHP 259WTQ on an otherwise stock 1.4T. Retunes for basic bolt on parts are included for free.
  • The handheld  can hold up to 5 tunes at once and swap tunes in under 30 seconds, no laptop needed! You also get full access to EFILive's logging software to view your own data logs using line graphs, tables, and even digital gauges to play back your log.
  • NOTE: The stock fuel injectors are considered "static" and will spray non-stop at duty cycles of 93% or more. On extremely aggressive tunes we have seen them exceed 110% duty cycle. If you plan on requesting an extremely aggressive tune, it is recommended that you upgrade to Bosch 42LB fuel injectors, but only genuine Bosch- not chinese knock offs. We sell genuine Bosch injectors HERE
  • Additional Notes: 2017 and newer model year requires an additional key/seed process, and so are $50 additional cost.
  • You will need a Windows computer to download the tuning software and to send/recieve files to load to the handheld. Software is NOT compatible with Apple operating systems or tablets running Windows RT.

We can not sell or ship this kit to CA or CARB states due to the intake included.

Great Choice Excellent Customer Service
I ordered this kit along with exhaust and got it all rather quickly. I had small issue installing flash software to my laptop but I sent an email at 1:30 AM for support and hoped for a reply in a day or so. email from Jerry 8 minutes later..does this guy sleep? Got it all installed along with the intake in the kit same time and all I can say is WOW!! This will wake your little turbo BEAST up and make it so much fun. Thanks for awesome product and better support. I will spend my $$$ here as the customer service ,support, and timely shipping of all my items has been perfect.

If this isn't your first upgrade your wasting your time and money. After this mod your boring sonic comes out of hibernation to eat other hatchbacks lunch. You will hang with or beat GTIs. Also the new intake noise is quite nice :)
