In case you didn’t know, a vehicle’s air intake system is found in the engine compartment. The system as a whole includes the air intake tube and air filter. An air intake tube commonly boasts an array of twists to dispel noise. These air intake twists trap noise and air, which makes for a considerably quiet riding experience. However, this restriction of airflow, along with inept air filtration, can hinder your vehicle’s engine performance.
To enable your truck or SUV to operate at optimum capacity, your engine needs access to the proper combination of air and fuel that allows for the optimal combustion environment to take place. It’s not uncommon for many factory air intake systems to fall short of providing the best amount of cool, clean air, which means the engine fails to operate at its full capacity.
To see an almost instantaneous improvement in your engine’s response and performance, you may want to think about replacing your truck’s air intake system.
Choosing to replace your vehicle’s air intake system can provide you with a handful of benefits, including the following:
The main difference between regular and cold air intakes is the fact that regular air intakes utilize air from inside the engine compartment. This is all well and good, but the air inside the engine compartment is hot. Conversely, cold air intakes utilize cool air from outside the engine compartment, and thus allows your engine to perform much better. When it comes to installing cold air intakes, you will find that the process is more labor intensive than installing a regular air intake system. Many people find that the extra work is well worth the performance enhancements.
Even though cold air intakes offer a wealth of benefits, they are not available for all types of vehicles, such as those that must drive through wet environments on a regular basis. Further, some people may not enjoy the look of a cold air intake system when compared to a regular system due to the fact that cold air intake systems call for the air box to be installed outside of the engine. This means the air box will likely be placed in a wheel well and will be visible from the vehicle’s exterior. Finally, not all vehicles reap the benefits of a cold air intake and operate perfectly well with a regular system.
