Why You Need a Chevy Tahoe Cold Air Intake System
When you own a large SUV, such as a Chevrolet Tahoe, you crave the same things of a truck owner. You want your SUV to be more powerful, you’d like it to be more fuel efficient (and cheaper at the pump), and you’d definitely like it to sound awesome when you hit the accelerator. You know, that nice throaty rumble? We’re here to tell you there’s an easy way to gain all three: install a Chevy Tahoe cold air intake system. The best part is that it’s an easy install process that nearly anyone can do at home. So if you have a 2021 Chevy Tahoe (5.3L V8 engine) and you’re looking to gain some major perks, keep on reading.
Cold Air Inductions sent the Elite Series cold air intake system to Youtuber Leaman Griffin to try it out. Here’s what he thought of the install process and final results.
Installing a Cold Air Intake System
The 2021 Chevy Tahoe cold air intake system fits 5.3L V8 engines of the Chevy Tahoe, Suburban, and Silverado. In fact, the install process for this kit is the same as doing it for a 2020 Chevy Silverado, which is covered in another video. Don’t be nervous about replacing the factory parts, because this kit fits seamlessly into the factory seating and lines up with all the bolt holes for a snug and professional end result. As Leaman mentions in the video above, it takes only 15-20 minutes to install the kit, so you can easily do it after work one day and still have time to test drive it.
The Elite Series products are built to last with exceptional quality and attention to detail. From stainless steel clamps to thermal or powder-coated finishes, you will get everything you need to replace your old engine air intake system quickly and know it will stand up to the test.
Why Install a Cold Air Intake?
There are many reasons you’d want to install a Chevy Tahoe cold air intake. Here are the most compelling reasons for most people:
- More Horsepower – even if you don’t take your SUV off the beaten path much, it’s nice to know you have power under the hood for when you want it. Numerous dyno tests show that you can gain 12 to 14 horsepower from simply adding a Chevy Tahoe cold air intake. For 15-20 minutes of effort, it’s really an easy trade-off.
- Better Fuel Economy – cooler air carries more oxygen, so it’s a cleaner and more powerful combustion cycle. Our top-notch air filters are specially engineered to trap tiny particles while maximizing air flow, and our insulated air boxes keep the air in the system as cool as possible.
- Cooler Sounding Engine – not that this is necessarily last, but who doesn’t want a cooler sounding SUV?
So if you have a 2021 Chevy Tahoe and you’re thinking the benefits above sound good to you, consider replacing a cold air intake system. It’s a huge pay-off for very little effort.
