Cold Air Intakes are becoming more and more popular in the performance car parts scene. A cold air intake replaces your OEM air intake and creates more airflow into your engine resulting in a horsepower increase. Air intakes are also said to increase gas mileage. In this article I will talk about the best and worst forced air induction systems and what to look for when buying one.Intakes come in many shapes and sizes. Its best to stay away from really cheap ones that you may find on ebay for example. These are not made from high quality parts and usually do not fit your car right. They also do not include any bolts or tubing you may need to install it.The best intakes come from the brand AEM. Over the years I have had many AEM cold air intakes and they never seize to amaze me. They give you the most horsepower gain and the best sound. Although they can be quite expensive, they give you the most bang for your buck. AEM now has the new V2 Cold air intake which delivers more air and … [Read more...] about Cold Air Intakes
Dual chamber intake vs cold air intake
Are you looking for an air intake but aren't sure which one to buy?There are different styles of Air Intake for you to choose from, such as Long Ram Cold Air Intake, Short Ram Air Intake, and Ram Air Intake kits. Here is a description of what they are and how some of these systems work...Long Ram Cold Air Intake Systems:Long Ram Cold Air Intake Systems create more horsepower and greater gas mileage by increasing the volumetric efficiency within the cylinders. The efficiency is increased due to removing the restrictive stock airboxes and replacing them with smooth flowing, mandrel bent tubing. This increases the amount of air and the velocity of air flowing into the engine. The air going into the engine is also significantly cooler (and denser) on a cold air intake system because the air pulled into the intake is pulled from air that is further from the engine that has not been heated as much. The filters are also more efficient, allowing more air into the intake.Short Ram Air Intake … [Read more...] about Air Intakes – Explaining The Secrets To The Intake Charge
The intake system on a four-stroke car engine has one main goal, to get as much air-fuel mixture into the cylinder as possible. One way to help the intake is by tuning the lengths of the pipes. When the intake valve is open on the engine, air is being sucked into the engine, so the air in the intake runner is moving rapidly toward the cylinder. When the intake valve closes suddenly, this air slams to a stop and stacks up on itself, forming an area of high pressure. This high-pressure wave makes its way up the intake runner away from the cylinder. When it reaches the end of the intake runner, where the runner connects to the intake manifold, the pressure wave bounces back down the intake runner. If the intake runner is just the right length, that pressure wave will arrive back at the intake valve just as it opens for the next cycle. This extra pressure helps cram more air-fuel mix into the cylinder -- effectively acting like a turbocharger. The problem with this technique is that it … [Read more...] about How do tuned intake runners work on your car?

In this series of articles we will be looking individually at some basic auto accessories that most people find to be necessary for your high performance vehicle. In this particular one we will be looking at cold air intakes, one of the first things most of the modifiers in the industry take care of right off the bat.So lets talk about the whole theory of an intake and in particular of a cold air intake. We all know that an engine mixes air and fuel together, compresses it and then ignites the concoction,that creates a small explosion in your cylinders. So in the digital world the engine computer takes care of this concoction to the best of it's ability. Here is another piece of information, the colder the air is, the denser it is. What does it mean to you? The denser the air in the mix with fuel, the bigger the explosion in your cylinders, the bigger the explosion in your cylinders, the more horsepower you get. So we want to take advantage of this and put in as cold (dense) air as we … [Read more...] about Auto Accessories – Cold Air Intakes
