The benefit of installing an Apexi cold air intake is that it relocated the source of the engine’s air supply to outside of the engine compartment. The air within the engine bay is very warm, and therefore less dense than the cooler air outside. Denser air will contain more oxygen, so colder air lets you produce more power. The Apexi cold air intake filter is designed to maximize the airflow through your Apexi cold air intake. It uses an excellent design and is located near the head of the intake system, which is usually down near the bumper or near a wheel well. The Apexi cold air intake filter needs to be regularly maintained. Paper cartridge filters need to be changed and reusable oil-type cone filters need to be regularly cleaned and re-oiled. Failure to maintain the Apexi cold air intake filter will result in power losses as the pores of the filter become clogged. If you live in a dusty environment or regularly take your vehicle off road, than you will need to do more frequent maintenance on your Apexi cold air intake filter. Let your engine breath easily by taking care of its intake system, especially the Apexi cold air intake filter.
