Cold Air Intake Kits - What Will you Really Get?

May 20, 2008
What is an air intake kit? If you've been looking around you will notice that there are a number of manufacturers in the market. You can find cold air intake kits for just about any car, SUV or truck. Some of the best brands are K&N and Airaid, wich I consider some of the best choices for mechanics enthusiasts.

All engines require air flow for fuel combustion. A cold air intake system or performance intake kit is simply a less restricted filtered inlet air system to your engine. The benefit over OEM air boxes equipped with your truck or SUV is improved engine air flow results in greater efficiency and horsepower output. That's it, other than they come in a variety of colors, look cool when you pop the hood and your engine produces a voice husky with emotion when you accelerate.

Performance Claims - I have read some fairly aggressive claims about cold air intake systems on the internet regarding the increase in horsepower and gas mileage. When considering a cold air intake system for your truck or car be aware your results will vary depending on your make and model of vehicle, personal driving habits, load on the engine (hauling or towing for example) and the existing air system restriction. If you are person who drives there vehicle "hard" because of increased horsepower after installing a cold air intake system you probably want see any increase in gas mileage. A 5% to 10% increase in horsepower is typical after installing a cold air intake system. I recommend you search for unbiased testimonials on the internet regarding horsepower and gas mileage performance increases regarding cold air intake systems before you purchase.

Maintenance - The price of a cold air intake kit can go anywhere from $200 to $500 depending on the manufacturer. However, it's common in all of them to use reusable air filters. This means that your air intake kit will last as long as your car. To keep it in working order, just wash it with any mild detergent, rinse it and oil it as explained in your manual. Pretty easy and cheap.

Cold Air intake Kits are one of the easiest truck or SUV accesories you can install yourself and gain in the process. Cold air intake systems are legal in all states and will not void your warranty. They will also work with your existing equipment computer and emissions control systems and provide superior air flow to your motor. Check some of the best offers.
