Product Details

Cold Air Dam Intake System with SynthaFlow™ Air Filter by AIRAID®. The AIRAID Cold Air Dam (CAD) Air Intake is engineered to give your engine larger amounts of cooler air to produce more horsepower and torque. The intake system retains the original location of the air filter but delivers a big boost with the addition of a huge open-element air inlet protected by Cold Air Dam panels that help to provide a steady, free-flowing supply of cooler outside air into your engine. The panels mount in the factory air box location and utilize any factory cold air inlet ducts that are present, while adding additional cold air passages to the filter. The panels also keep the filter isolated from the hot engine compartment air by sealing to the underside of the hood via blade-style weather stripping.


  • Engineered to help upgrade your vehicle’s power and overall performance
  • Manufactured from high-grade materials for long-lasting service in various conditions
  • Designed using cutting-edge technology to deliver outstanding performance
  • Proven to meet or exceed the most stringent standards of quality and safety
  • Made to offer a perfect fit for painless, hassle-free installation

This CAD system utilizes a replacement low-restriction intake tube. The 360-degree conical AIRAID premium air filter is washable and reusable, less restrictive than traditional paper, and assures superior filtration. The AIRAID Cold Air Dam Air Intake is easy to install with common hand tools. Some AIRAID air intakes are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards, while others are 50 state legal. View the product's vehicle applications to determine the legal status for each vehicle. 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.

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.

Delivery took about a week and a half. The air intake system itself was very easy to install in my 2019 Nissan Frontier SV Flex, 4.0L V6, considering I have zero experience installing anything on a vehicle!! In addition, the system is exceptionally well built and contains high-quality materials you can see and feel. As soon as I was done installing the system... oh boy, what a tremendous difference in torque and pick up! And the way the engine sounds now is beautiful. Overall, I'd say that I'm EXTREMELY satisfied with this product. Thank you CARiD and AIRAID for the awesome service and high quality products!

I had K&N cold air intake on my 06 Dodge Charger SRT8 that my neighbor who happened to be the original owner I baught the car from had installed, but I felt like the car felt kind of restricted especially when accelerating hard in 1st gear mostly a little less in second gear, so when I saw this I became really interested in the dam high density duct that would act as a real direct cold air intake since it gets even more air directly from the hoodscoop, so I decided to give it a shot. I ordered this at least 6 months ago, but it arrived right when winter hit and it was too cold to install, but since it's a little warmer now I figured I might as well install it the other day b.c I had nothing else to do b.c of of the corona virus quarantine haha, but the first thing I noticed was how much bigger the filter was compared to the K&N filter I was almost afraid that it wouldnt fit, but it did nice and snug with no room to spare and then I didn't know how much a difference the air duct would make, but I started the car and it even sounded louder and a little more aggressive and now it literally has no more restriction AT ALL and it even holds the RPM and speed longer unlike before it would. I would feel the car decelerating almost immediately after letting off the gas which also no longer happens, so from the huge filter to the air duct sucking air through the hoodscoop it feels like a totally different and better car. I thought it would make only a little difference, but wow was I pleasantly surprised. I'd highly recommend this for anyone who wants a real boost in acceleration or feels like their current filter is restrictive, this will definitely fix your problem.

Improved Gas Mileage
I have not really noticed an increase in horsepower, but I'm getting 1.8 more miles per gallon after installing this. My 15 Durango has a growl to it now and even my wife likes it. Good thing, because it is actually her car.

Simple and Easy
I bought this for my 2008 GMC Sierra. Underpowered from the factory, I was surprised with the improvement!

Happy Customer!
Installed this on the 2000 F-350, and it is working great. Haven't had a chance to take it on a long trip yet for gas mileage, but seems to be performing fantastic. Love the sound!

Great Service and Product
The intake is amazing and seems very durable, and the quality is fantastic. Very easy to install, but read the whole manual first before fixing things in the car.

My Airaid Intake System
Putting the Airaid system on my F-150 5.0L was almost like putting a turbo charger on it. I think the 5.0L would be a good contender against Ford's 6-cylinder EcoBoost. Putting a chip in the 5.0L would really boost it, because the 5.0L in the Mustang is over 400 hp.
