Cold Air Intakes
The cold air intake (or CAI, or just "intake") is literally everyone's first mod. It's simple, it looks great, it's easy for the do-it-yourselfer and it all around feels good. For higher end builds an intake becomes a necessity allowing for the huge amounts of air needed to feed the gas-powered air pump that is your engine.
Beyond the basics though our cold air intakes are a great first mod (beyond looking really cool) because you also get:
- Increased horsepower and torque: By providing more oxygen-rich air for combustion, cold air intakes boost your engine's power output.
- Improved throttle response: A more efficient airflow leads to quicker and more responsive acceleration.
- Enhanced fuel efficiency: With better combustion, your engine uses fuel more effectively, potentially improving gas mileage. CAI for fuel efficiency... counterintuitive I know ;).

Frequently Asked Questions
After I install your cold air intake will I need a tune?
Yes. All of our (and most aftermarket intakes in general) require a tune to ensure both maximum power but also drivability and overall performance.
The reason here is a few-fold but the relocation of the MAF sensor and the differing volumes and velocities of airflow mean that your car just won't understand the new intake as something useful until the tune is done.
