CGS is dedicated to helping you get the most from your vehicle so you can use its full potential. To that end, CGS makes products like this Air Intake System that help your engine "breathe" better. When your engine breathes better, it takes in more air, which allows the engine to burn more fuel. More air and fuel in the combustion process means more forceful explosions driving the pistons, resulting in more power to the rear wheels.

The easiest way to get more air into your engine is to remove the restrictive factory air intake system and replace it with a high-flow CGS Air Intake System. The factory system is very restrictive and the main source of restriction is the OEM paper air filter. The passages in an OEM paper air filter must be very small to trap dirt, and these small passages are what restrict flow. Even worse, as the filter becomes dirty, these passages become clogged, further reducing airflow. Another reason for restriction is the physical size of the factory air filter housing, or air box, which limits the size of the OEM air filter. The air inlet on the air box can also be very small, further restricting airflow. The final source of restriction is the factory air intake tube. The factory intake can be small in diameter, have sound baffles and make awkward bends.

A CGS Air Intake System will give your engine maximum airflow with superior air filtration. CGS equips all their systems with a large round or conical cotton gauze air filter. The combination of size, deep pleats (which further increase filter area) and superior material far outflows ordinary paper air filters, but not at the expense of air filtration that is so critical to long engine life. The CGS filter is connected to the throttle body with a CNC mandrel-bent steel intake tube. This tube features large diameters and smoother bends for greater airflow, and it's double powder coated in ceramic silver and clear for appearance and durability. All connections are made with high quality silicone couplers and clamps.

Besides better performance, you also get reduced maintenance costs with a CGS Air Intake System. Unlike an OEM paper air filter, which must be replaced periodically, the CGS air filter can be washed and reused. Check the filter's condition every time you change your oil, and when it's dirty to the point where you can't see any of the filter oil color, then it's time for maintenance. Clean the filter thoroughly with an air filter cleaner specified for use on cotton gauze air filters. Rinse the filter with clean water from the inside out and allow it to dry. Once dry, oil the pleats with cotton gauze air filter oil and reinstall. It's that simple.

The CGS Air Intake System is American made and street legal in all 50 states. It comes with everything included for an easy bolt-on installation, including detailed instructions. The excellence of CGS products has been recognized repeatedly with numerous awards at the SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association) shows in Las Vegas. CGS is so confident in the excellence of this air intake system that they guarantee it for life.

CGS® Motorsports has been in aftermarket automotive business since 1995, with the "Breathe" products, serving high quality products for trucks and SUV motors. All of the products are designed and developed to provide both performance increase and economy improvement, which seems to contradict one another at first. Among the most popular products are the intake and cat-back exhaust systems, that really let the engine take a deep breath. CGS motto says: LET IT BREATHE.

Let Me Breathe
CGS® - Short Ram Air Intake System
The product is way advanced compared to OEM air box. There aren't any restrictions in air flow with the nice long clean sweeps of the pipe bends. The filter is made by a well known manufacturer, K & N, the only thing you'll need later is a filter service kit, available at your nearby auto parts store (average $12.00). The installation was quite easy, an instruction sheet was included with purchase and also had a telephone number for help if needed. The quality of components are of high and will last. I would recommend this product to anybody wishing to better their vehicle. I hope to track gas mileage increase on my next tank of petro.

Air Intake for a HHR
CGS® - Short Ram Air Intake System
My husband installed the intake on my 2006 HHR, and we went on a road trip. Our gas millage went from 32 mpg to 38 mpg, and our in-town millage went from 25 to 30. Like the extra horsepower and better millage.
