Spectre Performance

Innovative Parts to Fuel Your Car Obsession

Spectre Performance takes its roots from 1983 when Amir Rosenbaum started selling NylaBraid hose covers out of his parents' garage to earn some money. The company is now based in Ontario, California and has a team of enthusiastic staff who shares the same dedication to excellence in everything they do. Today Spectre Performance no longer sells NylaBraid but offers a wide range of products for classic and late-model muscle cars as well as trucks and SUVs.

The company is also famous for its fastest gasoline-powered vehicle on Earth – the Spectre Speedliner. This beast has broken the petrol-powered four-wheel land speed record, and the team isn't going to stop. But let's get back to the point. Spectre Performance makes high-end air intake systems and a scope of related accessories that increase performance while withstanding extreme operating conditions.


Pack loads of cool, fresh air into your engine today with Spectre's cold air intakes, plenums, and ducting. The manufacturer also makes custom fuel lines, hoses, filters, clamps, fittings, and adapters. Your engine bay lacks that extra finishing touch? You can simply dress it up with chrome hardware, oil pans, valve covers, and the like. If you still haven't unleashed your engine's full potential, it's high time it worked smarter.

All Spectre products are thoroughly tested under in-house laboratory conditions as well as the most rigorous race conditions to help you make your vehicle one-of-a-kind in terms of performance. Almost all Spectre Performance systems have a CARB exemption, which means that they meet emissions criteria. Though the CARB-certified parts are rathert expensive, they allow you to enjoy your customized vehicle on highways without causing damage to the environment.

We all know that cold air means more power. But would it truly make that significant change? The answer is, of course! The incoming air, heated by the engine, radiator, and exhaust can achieve temperatures of 200° F. With every 10° F reduction in the incoming air temperature, the engine gains 1,5 to 2% in torque and horsepower. With the Spectre air intake parts, designing your own air intake system is much easier than you might think. Just decide where the air is going to be coming from, everything else is almost a game.

2007 Ford F-150
| Posted by | (Calgary, AB)

You get what you pay for, $180 obviously isn't going to get you anything too incredible. However I have no complaints about this item, I wanted a cheap option that be function better than the stock. It did exactly that. $200 shipped for an air intake is very hard to beat. The product looks good and was very simple to install as it came with a very detailed instruction book. If you are looking for a cheap option to increase gas mileage, and get a few more horses on a slight budget this is your item. You won't be disappointed unless you have top shelf expectations for a discount priced item. Good value, would recommend.

2007 Mercury Mariner
| Posted by | (Chadwick, IL)

Wow is all I can say. I installed this in my Mercury Mariner last month, and I can not believe the difference. I instantly felt more horsepower, and my average fuel economy went up slightly. Not to mention that it made my engine sound better. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a cheap way to boost the power.

2007 Toyota Tundra
| Posted by | (Southlake, TX)

I had this installed by my favorite mechanic on my 2007 Tundra. The installation instructions are not that great, but it is not that difficult to do. Make sure you have the air sensor tube turned the correct direction or the motor will die. The gas mileage went up over 2 MPG for both highway and city driving, so I am very pleased with that, which was my goal... I now get over 17 MGP on the highway (5.7-L engine).

2008 Ford Mustang
| Posted by | (Kingston, ON)

Great product and great shipping. Looks amazing. Can definitely notice the improvement in vehicle performance right from the start. Only thing is difficult to install, as it does not come with an instruction manual. Had to use other means to put together. Otherwise, still was good to install and use. Recommend the product.

The 14" diam. round air cleaner I had was too large and interfered with the distributor and spark plug wiring. This unit fits the bill perfectly. It looks great, fits the space great and is very easy to maintain. Thanks!
