Acura TL 2000-2001, Metal Gray Dual Chamber Air Intake System by AEM®. Replacement Filter # 21-204DK. Use with Pre-Filter # 1-4000. Includes: 4 Hose Clamps. Tube Material: Metal. Tube Finish: Gray. The Dual Chamber Air Intake system uses a patented design that creates multiple frequency sound waves in the intake tube to charge the cylinders with more air. These systems typically make even more power than AEM's Cold Air Intake systems.
Notes: AEM® bypass valves are not compatible with this intake system (PN# 24-6016C). Do Not attempt to install an AEM bypass valve on this intake system.
Fitment notes: Legal For Sale Or Use In California.

When you want the most horsepower and torque possible, the AEM Dual Chamber Intake system is the only way to go. AEM performed extensive research and testing with tube lengths and diameters during the development of the Dual Chamber system. They found that by using two different diameters and varying the length of the tubing, they could create multiple frequency sound waves that could charge the cylinders with more air than would be possible with a conventional system. In fact, they found that tube length was so critical it was not always possible to locate the Dryflow air filter outside the engine compartment. On these vehicles, the company performed extensive temperature testing to locate the filter in the coolest area of the engine compartment to achieve the lowest air inlet temperature possible. Like all AEM air intake systems, the AEM Dual Chamber Air Intake system is made in the USA and backed by a lifetime warranty.
Every AEM air intake system comes with the innovative, oil-free, high-flow AEM Dryflow air filter. Each Dryflow filter is engineered to exceed the normal flow capacities of the engine it is required for when clean, while providing outstanding filtration and dust holding capacity. And the flow requirements are exceeded by a wide margin, which allows you plenty of leeway for engine breathing modifications, without needing to worry about having enough intake airflow. The AEM Dryflow filter is constructed of a unique non-woven polyester-based filter media supported by aluminum screen wire for rigid structural strength. This filter media doesn’t require oil to filter and trap dirt and contaminants, and actually sheds dirt under engine vibration, unlike cotton-gauze, which holds onto contaminants until you clean the filter. When it’s time to clean, simply tapping the filter a few times will remove most of the dirt from the filter pleats. Then spray the filter with AEM’s environmentally friendly, mild, all-purpose cleaner. Rinse the filter with clean water and allow to dry, or blow dry with compressed air. Best of all, the Dryflow filter requires no oiling, so there’s never a chance of over-oiling. The Dryflow filter is extremely durable and will withstand almost unlimited cleanings.
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.
