The funny thing about auto manufacturers is that they make a lot of sacrifices to the design and drivability of their vehicles for the sake of profits. One of the places where manufacturers are guilty of scrimping is frequently the air intake. Factory air boxes typically draw in air from within the engine compartment, run the air through a series of tight bends, and then deliver it to the intake manifold. An aftermarket air intake, such as the AEM cold air intake, is designed to replace the poor design of your factory air box and to help you generate more power. An AEM cold air intake is designed to draw in cooler air from outside of the engine bay. Cool air is denser than hot air, which means that it will contain significantly more oxygen. More oxygen, of course, equals more power, and with the AEM cold air intake, you can see some real power gains. The AEM cold air intake is also less restrictive that your factory intake. The smooth curves reduce turbulence, allowing more air to flow in uninterrupted. So stop strangling your engine and install an AEM cold air intake. Your car will thank you for the breath of fresh air. Auto enthusiasts definitely deserve great information and support when they buy dependable auto parts from us.
