April 28, 2006, Newsletter Issue #13: You Can Improve On The Factory Design

Tip of the Week

OEM Intake manifolds will usually sacrifice peak horsepower, in favor of greater average power and increased gas mileage. OEM air intake systems also incorporate noise suppresion devices and non-optimal air intake routing which can hurt performance.

Adding a AEM cold air intake to an otherwise factory intake system can add anywhere from 5 to 20 horsepower, and improve gas mileage. The best part is, companies like AEM sell C.A.R.B. exempt cold air intake kits, so your car remains street legal.
