You’re creating your own air intake system using an AIRAID UBI intake tube. But now, instead of having the filter be exposed to the heat of the engine compartment, you can connect the UBI intake tube to a custom Performance Airbox!
The Performance Airbox kit includes a premium high-flow SynthaFlow air filter, air filter adapter, air dam and everything else needed to construct a custom air filter housing in the corner of the engine compartment. When installed, depending on application, the air dam seals against the hood with weather stripping or has a top panel, to create a custom large capacity enclosure that shields the air filter from engine heat. The combination of large, free-flowing air filter and generous capacity, isolated airbox results in great quantities of cool, dense air funneled to your engine. Cooler, denser air contains more oxygen, and more oxygen in your engine’s air intake charge means better combustion, resulting in greater engine output.
The SynthaFlow air filter is a cotton-gauze and synthetic blend that outperforms plain cotton-gauze in clean air testing. The SynthaFlow features “five layer” filtration, with 4 layers of cotton-gauze supplemented by “the last layer of defense”, a layer of synthetic media that produces the cleanest air of any washable filter. The filtering media is held together by epoxy coated aluminum wire mesh, specially designed to provide the optimum balance between maximum airflow and peak filtration. The SynthaFlow air filter is over 99% efficient, meaning it allows more airflow while filtering out dirt particles ordinary filters let pass. You get better performance without sacrificing air filtration.
The Performance Airbox kit comes complete with everything necessary for installation, including comprehensive instructions. And it’s backed by AIRAID’s “No Hassle” warranty. There are no limitations or fine print here. Simply, if you’re ever dissatisfied with the materials, workmanship, or performance of this air intake system, just send it back... period! You don't have to worry about a proof of purchase or a warranty card. AIRAID air intake systems are warranted for life.
Airaid® The company was founded in 1997 when it began developing and manufacturing air intake systems for light trucks and SUVs, utilizing the cotton-gauze filter technology that was available at the time. The original AIRAID® Intake System combined an open-element filter with an intake tube to make an easy-to-install air intake kit that dramatically increased air flow, improved performance and generated more horsepower and torque. It didn't take long to realize, that as the sales of intake systems nearly tripled in the first year of production, another source of filters was needed. At the time, AIRAID®'s founders believed they could produce a better-quality filter utilizing new technology and state-of-the-art materials. By November 2002, the AIRAID® Premium Filter Company was formed.
