One of the keys to boosting horsepower and torque in any engine is to improve how it breathes. The easiest way to do that is with a cold air intake which eliminates airflow restrictions and keeps the air inlet charge cool. However, most cold air intakes are plastic and absorb heat, limiting or eliminating any performance gain.
Our cold air induction systems are made from aluminum to be durable yet lightweight. And, they are thermal coated to limit heat transfer from the hot under-hood environment. The quality and performance speak for themselves, which is why MotorTrend used one in its fifth-gen Camaro upgrade project.
MotorTrend’s 5th Generation Camaro Upgrade
MotorTrend’s fifth-gen Camaro upgrade project aimed to improve the performance of a Chevy L99 motor. Stock, the motor made 345 rear-wheel horsepower and 355 lb-ft of torque. Adding a Cold Air Induction intake and performing an ECS tune increased output by 18 to 363 rear-wheel horsepower.
Next, the Camaro received an upgraded camshaft and a complete American Racing Headers exhaust setup. The camshaft and exhaust upgrade complimented the improved breathing of the Cold Air Induction intake, providing better all-around performance. Once everything was installed, the dyno run revealed a jaw-dropping increase of 98 horsepower from stock, for a total of 443 rear-wheel horsepower.
While the camshaft and exhaust upgrades would have added some additional power, they would not have been as effective without a high-quality cold air intake. We were honored MotorTrend chose our Cold Air Induction intake system for its Camaro project and were pleased to see the results.
Chevy Camaro Air Intakes From Cold Air Inductions
All cold air intake systems are not the same. Many are made of cheap plastic or use restrictive air filters that can rob your vehicle of some of its performance. That’s why we engineer every cold-air intake as a complete system, from the aluminum housing to the air filter. Our cold-air induction systems are designed to work for your specific vehicle, optimizing airflow with minimal turbulence.
Since 2004 Cold Air Inductions has manufactured the highest-quality air intakes in the industry, delivering real, measurable power increases. Check out our testimonials and customer reviews to see what people say about our intakes.
