Cold Air Dam Intake System by Airaid®. The Cold Air Dam Intake System positions a large 360º AIRAID air filter with a huge air inlet in the stock location, but encloses it in a housing that seals against the hood, shielding the filter from engine heat and enabling it to take in large quantities of cooler, denser air. The cooler air contains more oxygen for more complete combustion, resulting in more horsepower and torque, and improved performance.

Increased airflow to your engine will increase horsepower and torque, but if that air is cooler and denser your engine will make even more power! 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 AIRAID Cold Air Dam intake system ensures that only cooler air will reach your engine's air intake. It replaces your factory air box with a specially designed enclosure. The enclosure contains a large, free-flowing SynthaFlow or SynthaMax AIRAID filter, with a huge air inlet to increase airflow to the engine. But the magic occurs when your hood is closed, because that's when the Cold Air Dam enclosure seals against the hood and forms a large capacity airbox 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.
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.
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.
Some intake systems also include a roto-molded polyethylene intake tube, which further aids airflow to the engine. This tube is less affected by engine heat than steel or aluminum tubing.
The Cold Air Dam Intake System 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.
