What’s The Point of Air Intake Upgrades? 

Air intake upgrades are very popular for two reasons. Firstly, many do so to get more power out of their engine without draining their wallet. Secondly, drivers who routinely travel in dusty areas may struggle with air intake filter clogs, and although that is primarily due to the filter itself, the two components are effectively two peas in the same pod. 

How Much Extra Power Can I Expect? 

On naturally aspirated motors, you’ll likely see an increase anywhere from 5 to 15 horsepower. However, if your engine is turbocharged or supercharged, the gains may be significantly larger due to how air is compressed. 

Will This Impact My Fuel Efficiency?

Yes, any additional power created by your engine will result in a decrease in fuel efficiency. There isn’t necessarily a solid percent with respect to how much it will drop, as there are many other factors that could come into play, but generally, it’s not a substantial drop. 

Is This A Good Standalone Upgrade? 

Generally, air intake upgrades are done alongside other performance upgrades like ECM tuning, the addition of a forced induction system (Turbo or Supercharger), and other similar upgrades. On their own, the additional power isn’t significant, but still noticeable. 

What Vehicles Can I Upgrade? 

Anything with an internal combustion engine can be upgraded! Internal combustion engines all require air to run, and that’s frankly the only requirement for an upgrade of this sort. Do keep in mind that certain engine types will require different types of air intakes. For example, a supercharged V8 is more likely to have particular air intake requirements than a flat 4 engine. 

How Much Do Performance Intakes Cost? 

The price of performance intakes varies depending on the brand and quality. If you’re looking for recommendations, or want to see if we can source a part, give us a call today.
