Advanced FLOW Engineering is a company that has only been around for a little more than a decade. Yet, it has already garnered awards from the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) and its cold air intake system has helped win the Baja 1000. Its AFE Power brand is known for its product line up that includes fluid filters, exhaust systems, intercoolers, and throttle-body spacers.
Advanced FLOW Engineering was founded in 1999 by its current president, Shahriah Niakan. Known as Nick by his friends, this performance enthusiast and BMW fan has over 17 US patents to his name. His inventions include multiple air filters and air intake manifolds that have become part of the company's line-up.
Advanced FLOW Engineering has grown throughout the years. From 2007 until 2009, the company introduced various products for diesel applications, powersport applications, and performance diesel applications. By 2012, the company has entered the transmission pan market. Today, it employs around 70 employees in its Corona, California headquarters. These facilities total 160,000 square-feet, including its manufacturing, research and development, and warehousing facilities.
Cold air intake for boosting the combustion in the block
The stock engine set-up needs to suck in adequate amount of air for proper detonation. Remember that the pistons move after achieving the right mix of air and fuel, and firing the mixture up. The stock intake might be positioned in a relatively convenient place in the engine bay. However, there is a bigger probability of it sucking in the warm air from the engine. With the AFE MagnumFORCE cold air intake, the entry point of the air is moved further away from the engine. Aside from that, the heat shield contributes to the prevention of hot air coming into the system. This can improve your engine response and even boost the output by some horsepower. The component is offered in different configurations in order to fit in the engine bay of your vehicle. Aside from that, it is equipped with a reusable filter and a powder coated heat shield. The part can easily be integrated into your engine without having to do extensive modifications.
Intercooler for the better flow of dense air
When your engine is equipped with a turbocharger, it would be ideal to have an intercooler to complement it for better performance. This component is meant to improve the flow and quality of air that is being fed into the engine. The AFE Power BladeRunner GT intercooler is a suitable replacement for OE intercoolers. Its aluminum body has better durability and faster cooling time. This part can easily be installed so it can save you time and effort.
Air filter for a suitable replacement of the old OE part
Let's face a fact: the air in our environment carry different particles. Some of these can be harmful to the engine components if ever they end up inside. Moreover, they can compromise the quality and performance of your block. With dirty air, you might end up losing significant power. As a solution, you can use the AFE MagnumFLOW Pro Guard. It is a washable air filter that can be fitted to most intake systems.
block. But before the electricity reaches the tip, it will have to travel from the distributor first. The part designates the charge to the right plug precisely when the piston is on position. To get to that point, you can use the NGK spark plug wire. Its thickness is suitable for efficient movement of electricity going to the spark plugs. Aside from its main function, it can also serve some aesthetic purpose. The color of the wire can give accents on the engine bay and complement the existing colors there.
Quick starts with dependable glow plugs
Diesel engines operate slightly different from their petrol-fed counterparts. The air being fed to the engine needs to be heated to a certain temperature to fire the cylinders quickly. To be able to start the engine and bring it up to the necessary operating temperature, the NGK glow plug can be used as a replacement to the old worn out part. It can improve the pre-heat time and your cold starts. Likewise, it is meant to follow the stricter emission regulations set by the government.
