Article on Cold Air Intakes and Its Designs

Aug 20, 2008
One of the more fragile elements of a car is its intake system. To get the most out of your car the intake has to be solid. As part of the combustion engine, it pumps air to mix oxygen with gas and produce explosive energy to power your car.

The intake itself is a pump that increases the velocity of air into the engine bay. A proper intake is also designed to eliminate any restrictions in flow. On cars with turbochargers and superchargers it is not uncommon to find extensive reconstruction of cold air intakes to provide a smooth flowing pressurized intake system.

Many modern cars that consumers buy have three components to their intake, an air filter, mass throttle body, and mass flow sensor. Occasionally there are also silencers to decrease any unwelcomed noise. Unfortunately this silencer also restricts air flow, thus decreasing overall power.

Cold air intakes are designed at specific lengths to allow certain frequencies to flow better. This primarily assists the flow into the combustion engine. Many car enthusiast shops offer larger air intakes and throttle bodies to lower the restrictions on air flow. In terms of a Daihatsu, if you feel there is something wrong with the intake, it might be an issue with the sensor. It's always best to check your manual.

As an automobile owner, you need to know a fair amount more about your intake system. The first step is to understand how the air and fuel combine to be lit in the cylinders. In an engine with a carburetor, air enters a space to be passed through the air filter before the carburetor. As the air passes the filter and enters the carburetor, the carburetor mixes the fuel and air together.

It proceeds to the intake manifold and then into your cylinders. Surprisingly the most advanced part of cold air intakes is the temperature sensor. It prevents your carburetor from icing over preventing your engine from dying.

It also obviously measures the air temperature. Even then, it can't help you find the right temperature to mix with your fuel, this needs to be done with an emission analyzer. Air flow through the intake is controlled specifically by the chamber. The car enters idle mode when said chamber is closed. There is a bypass that allows air to bypass the chamber and proceed to the engine. The Cold Star Valve and the Throttle position sensor are additional parts of cold air intakes that are considered important.

This is the basic foundation for cold air intakes in cars. Hopefully this will help you with any problems concerning intakes you might face in the future. Never forget to also periodically check your owner's manual.
