Universal Hose Adapter by AEM®. If you’re replacing a piece of hose, or adapting or modifying an AEM Cold Air Intake or Short Ram System, use the proper hoses and adapters from AEM for long service life.
- Silicone rubber hose for long life
- Tolerant of high and low temperatures
- Resistant to degradation by gasoline, oil solvents or alcohol
Don’t use scraps of leftover neoprene radiator hose to connect intake components to the throttle body. This superior, reinforced silicone rubber is manufactured to AEM’s specifications specifically for intakes. This supple rubber will fit tightly over rigid pipes, conforming slightly for good seal, while remaining stiff enough to provide a smooth inside diameter for maximum airflow. Because it’s a silicone-based rubber formulation, it retains its integrity from subzero conditions to the hottest underhood environments. Don’t worry about spilled fuel or oil, alcohol or diesel fuel, this rubber is highly resistant to anything you might find underhood.
John Concialdi and Bob Sullivan co founded AEM in 1987 as a tuning performance shop in Compton California. Both men had extensive technical backgrounds in engines and engine airflow, and in a short time AEM became the go-to company for performance modifications. By 1993, when the company relocated to Gardena California, it had become commonplace to see cars wearing the bright yellow AEM logo winning races. AEM tirelessly dyno tested and worked closely with racers and auto manufacturers in an effort to understand intake energy dynamics. This resulted in the sale of their first air intake kit in 1994. AEM can boast a number of firsts and unique products: They’re the first manufacturer to make an intake system with specific tube lengths and diameters to take advantage of pressure waves in the inlet tract; they developed the first dual chamber intake kit; they designed an air bypass valve to prevent hydro-lock should the air filter ingest water; and they created one of the first hybrid intake systems for modified cars. AEM continues to create innovative products to help you get more power from your car.
