The AIRAID Jr. Kit may be the simplest and most economical way to improve your vehicle's performance. For not much money and a few minutes installation time, this kit will improve throttle response and boost horsepower and fuel mileage.
The improvement starts with a Direct-Fit, Replacement SynthaFlow or SynthaMax air filter, installed in your factory airbox in place of the OEM filter. Each 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. And each filter is made with 304 stainless steel mesh, for exceptional durability. The strength of the stainless steel won't allow the filter to bow in the center, allowing unfiltered air into the engine.
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 SynthaMax filter is 100% synthetic, with an inner filter media consisting of two distinct layers of specifically designed synthetic materials that have separate performance characteristics. These layers are designed to work together to provide outstanding airflow and exceptionally high filtration. Contaminants are first captured by the outer layer of synthetic needlefelt polyester material, designed for wet and dry filtration with high airflow capacity. The inner layer of rayon/polyester captures any remaining contaminants while maintaining high airflow and low restriction. The inner filter media is supported by an inner and outer layer of wire mesh for strength and durability.
The modular air intake tube is made of high density polyethylene, which is less affected by engine heat than steel or aluminum tubing. The shape of the tube is computer designed to "straighten out" and improve airflow to the engine versus the stock air inlet system, for better throttle response and increased horsepower and torque. It's connected with durable, urethane couplers and stainless steel clamps.
The AIRAID Jr. 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® was founded in 1997 when they began developing and manufacturing air intake systems for light trucks and SUVs, utilizing the cotton-gauze filter technology that was available at the time. These systems increased airflow and performance while being easy to install, and sold so well that the company soon realized that another source of filters was necessary. They believed they could produce a better quality filter using new technology and state-of-the-art materials, and so in 2002 the AIRAID Filter Company was formed. Today AIRAID is the recognized leader in air management technology. Extensive research and development has allowed AIRAID to come to market first with high quality products that improve drivability and performance.
