Product Information
A cold air intake system relocates the filter outside of the engine compartment to deliver cool air inlet temperatures. Cooler air carries more oxygen, which translates into a more intense explosion in the combustion chamber to create more horsepower and torque.

However, thats only part of the power equation. Tuning the inlet pipe in length and diameter to match the engines resonance helps move more air to the cylinders (think of your engine as a big air pump), and this tuning allows AEM to deliver large power gains. They also monitor fuel trim correction factors and all OBDII sensors during product development to eliminate leaning the engine out and/or throwing a check engine light.

Every AEM cold air induction system features high standards of construction and AEM are so confident in their fit and performance that they offer a lifetime limited warranty on them. All AEM cold air systems include a lifetime Dryflow synthetic air filter which also comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
