Benefits of Cold Air Intake

Save

Factory car engines have stock air intake systems. These systems use a paper air filter and intake tube that are based on keeping the engine quiet. Replacing the stock air intake system with a cold air intake system makes the engine slightly louder. However, doing so has numerous benefits.

Longer Engine Block Life

  • When the engine runs at a cooler temperature, it has a longer life span. This means benefit also extends to engine components, including the radiator.

Faster Throttle Response

  • When you press the gas pedal from a complete stop, a stock air intake sends warm air into the combustion chamber, which produces a slow response from the engine. However, if you have a cold air intake, the air that enters the chamber is cooler. This enables the engine respond faster than with a stock intake.

Increased Horsepower

  • Because cold air is more conducive to fuel burning, your engine's horsepower will be increased as soon as the cold air intake is installed.

Better Gas Mileage

  • Cold air intake systems provide a better air to fuel ratio in the gas lines. This equates to better gas mileage because the mixture is burned more efficiently.

Save Money on Filters

  • The air filter on a cold air intake can be washed and reused if it is re-oiled properly after washing it. This saves money because you aren't replacing the filter every 15,000 miles, like you have to with a paper filter.
