One of the problems with most factory air intakes is that they are fairly restrictive. A smooth and open air system is the best way to get the most oxygen to your engine. Factory air boxes and intakes with their tight bends and small diameter tubing prevent air from flowing freely into your engine, increasing turbulence and reducing your power. The Airaid cold air intake tube is designed with nice wide tubing to maximize your air flow. The Airaid cold air intake is a great design anyway, because it relocates the source of your engine’s ar from within the engine bay to outside, where it is cooler. Cooler air, because it is denser than warm air, will contain more oxygen per liter, so your engine is able to burn more fuel. The Airaid cold air intake tube makes this relocation possible. It is carefully bent so that you can pick up your air from either behind the front bumper or down near the wheel well. The bends of the Airaid cold air intake tube are very gentle and smooth, reducing turbulence. Turbulence is the enemy of engine power, as it slows down the air flow and actually requires more power from your engine to draw in the air. That is why the Airaid cold air intake tube is the secret of the success for cold air intakes. Car enthusiasts deserve professional assistance when ordering quality parts for their car or truck.
