The main function of the cold air intake in your car is to bring cooler air into the engine as opposed to the preheated air, which is a result of engine heat in the vicinity of the air cleaner. The colder the air your engine gets, the denser the charge, and therefore, higher horsepower. The HPS Cold Air Intake relocates the industry's most advanced K&N air filter outside of the engine compartment to provide the coolest air inlet temperatures. Being tested on a dynamometer, the system shows a significant increase in horsepower and torque. In comparison with a short ram air intake, the HPS Cold Air Intake brings cooler air with more oxygen, which results in an intense explosion in the combustion chamber to produce more horsepower and torque in the mid and low rpm range.
Constructed of lightweight yet sturdy mandrel-bent aluminum alloy piping, the kit can boast of long lasting durability. Besides, HPS Cold Air Intake Systems include the HPS-signature reinforced silicone hoses to ensure reliability and durability during the most severe driving conditions. Also, they come with the K&N high-flow conical air filter aimed to provide increased surface area and dust capacity. This extra surface area ensures even more airflow at lower restriction than the ordinary replacement filter that is limited to the size of the original air box. The oversized air filter also traps more dirt, extending the service life before cleaning is necessary (up to 100,000 miles).
