Cold air intake systems have a vital function in a car. There are numerous brands that differ in torque, horsepower, crucial components, etc.
A cold air intake system lowers the temperature of the air entering the engine of a car, thereby increasing its power. Cold air is denser than warm and humid air. Thus, a given volume of cold air has more oxygen. This in turn, improves the combustion in the engine, and you get more horsepower at better fuel economy.
Velocity systems have 6.8 horsepower gain and 7.1 ft-lb of torque at 5000 rpm. It has high quality polished intake accompanied by superior performance gains. The system has a high performance air filter, and a mandrel bent polished intake tube. This system is used in cars like Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Hummer, Nissan, Toyota, Dodge, Ford, Jeep and Lincoln.
Kool Vue systems have a maximum of 11.3 horsepower gain at 5500 rpm and 10.9 ft-lb of torque at 5250 rpm. It is made of 6061 Aluminum. The system delivers more power through the vehicle’s full rpm range using mandrel bent piping and a reusable high flowing air filter.
K&N systems have 17.54 horsepower at 4917 rpm. The reusable filter is very durable, and generates more power. The large filter area can raise the service intervals by up to 100,000 miles. Cars like Acura, Jeep, Porsche, Land Rover, Chrysler etc have these systems.
AEM systems have a short ram air intake and a polished, dry flow filter. These have a new dryflow air filter that does not require oil, and is very durable. This system is used by car brands like Honda, Mercury, Volkswagen, Suzuki, Eagle, Saturn, Isuzu, Plymouth etc.
Airaid system can be installed in 30 minutes. It enhances the horsepower and mileage. There is also more power per mile. Makes like Chrysler, Ford, Lincoln, Mitsubishi, Toyota and Cadillac use such systems.
Street performance system is one of the most advanced airflow management technology. The components are of high quality, and are engineered for exact fit and function. Some of these are made of high-quality 16 gauge steel.
Pacesetter system uses mandrel bent 3.5 inches diameter tubing for a perfect match between the engine requirements, and power gain. A special powder-coat finish ensures minimum effect of underhood temperatures on inlet air temperature. A high volume cone filter with washable pleated element straightens the air before it enters the intake tube of the mass air flow sensor. The system can be installed in a maximum of 30 minutes, and does not need any cutting or drilling. Vehicle makes like Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, GMC and Jeep use this system.
AFE system gains up to 50 horsepower, and improves airflow by up to 75%. The system replaces OE air box and filter, and factory intake tube. The installation is very simple. The fuel efficiency, and throttle response is also improved.
Injen system is short ram intake system. This dyno tuned air intake system fits directly in place of the OEM air intake system. Infiniti, Lexus, Mazda, Scion, Subaru are some of the makes that use this system.
Neuspeed system delivers super hi-performance, better throttle response, better fuel economy, and more power. There is a 5-8 horsepower increase on a restrictive factory air box. It has a stainless steel heat shield, and a hi-performance filter that can be washed and reused.
True flow system is a unique departure from the traditional systems. The stock air filter is replaced with True Flow’s high flow, foam air filter. The factory air tube is replaced with True Flow’s powder coated, mandrel bent tube with reinforced silicone couplers. This results in maximization of velocity. This system retains all factory breathers, sensors and hoses.
