Air Intake Charge as an Art and a Science

Jul 4, 2008
Are you looking to buy an air intake? Well, there are various kinds or styles to choose from but if you are not very much aware how each of these types work, you might get confused and hesitate on which one is the best choice. Among the most popular styles of air intake charge kits are the Short Ram, Long Ram Cold, and the Ram. If you want to know more about how these systems work, then read on.

The difference between the short and long ram systems are that the short ram systems has a shorter tube to bring in cold air. On average they are not equally efficient when they are compared side by side and examined to the long ram cold air intake system. Since they will pull in warmer, less dense air, considering how closer it is to the engine block. Most importantly, they still beat most other kinds of stock air intake systems.

Greater horsepower and better gas mileage is increased when the vehicle's cylinders are also increased with a long ram cold system. Removing the stock air boxes then replacing them with smooth flowing mandrel bent tubing will increase its overall efficiency. The speed of air that is moving towards the engine and the volume of air will rise too.

With this kind of air intake the air that goes into the engine becomes cooler and denser. This is due to the fact that the air further from the engines which has not heated too much yet is the air being pulled into the intake. The efficiency of filters is also increased by allowing more air to the intake.

Ram Systems uses outside air then forces induction into your vehicle's engine. A vehicle with a "scoop" in its hood is often evidence of the presence of a ram air intake. The air gushes into the intake all the way through the tubing connected in the scoop. The speed of air that comes from the intake grows as the speed of the vehicle increases.

The overall mechanism generates good, dense, cold and high velocity air for your engine due to its high speeds for the engine, thus resulting in the creation of extra horsepower. By using induction of force, some of the ram systems by Long are capitalized. The placement of a vehicle's air filter needs to be in an area where the high speed air is directed over the filter.

If you are wondering how you could get the best air intake system and the differences between the brands and designs here are some tips:

1. When determining which air intake system to buy consider the dyno proven results. Next, you will be presented with an example of its proper use with your vehicle.

2. Do not fall victim to the running myth that when it is about air intake systems - what is bigger is better. In some cases, this may be true but not in other circumstances.
