Are All Air Intake Systems Providing Performance Gains?

Dyno Proven Pontiac GTO Cold Air Intake Performance Boost

DiabloFormulaRacing does a dyno test to test the horsepower gains at the wheels on a Pontiac GTO. He replaces an “Acme” brand air intake system with a Cold Air Inductions air intake system on the dyno. One run on the “Acme” system for the baseline. Then, after the swap, the Pontiac GTO is put to the test on the dyno again with a new Cold Air Inductions air intake system to see what the results are. There is no programming and no other modifications. Just a head to head comparison between aftermarket systems. One was built as an “affordable” option as an aftermarket cold air intake system. The Cold Air Inductions system is built and engineered to get the most of the engine and space available. This goes to show not all air intakes are made equal. The side by side comparison of the rear-wheel torque and horsepower show top end gains with the Cold Air Inductions air intake system over the no-name induction system. With dyno proven performance, the Pontiac GTO shows improvement even without tuning.

 

This is why Cold Air Inductions puts so much time and effort into a cold air intake system. It is built to fit and built to the available space for optimum performance. The systems are dyno tested and created for the engine requirements. The Pontiac GTO is a performance built vehicle and the best option for a cold air intake system is built to maximize the airflow and controlling thermal in the space available in the engine bay. With thermal testing, Cold Air Inductions can see how the heat is managed within the engine bay and shield the airbox for the coldest air to the intake. The results are optimum airflow at the ideal temperature for the sensors and the engine combustion.
