The First Mod You Should Install on Every Truck!

Truck Performance Mods | Silverado Truck Mod – Cold Air Intake

Let’s say you just bought or picked up a new GMC Sierra or Chevy Silverado, and you are hyped to start installing mods on the truck, what should your first mod be? By a long shot, the first and best mod for every truck should be a new cold air intake. This is easily one of the cheapest ways to increase your truck’s horsepower and performance, and that boost in fuel economy!

So Do Cold Air Intakes for Trucks Really Work?

Before spending your money on a new GMC Sierra or Silverado cold air intake you are probably wondering, do cold air intakes really work? Do you really experience performance or horsepower gains? Street Speed 717 dyno tests the 2017 5.3 V8 Chevrolet Silverado before and after a cold air intake install. These Silverado cold air intake dyno results don’t lie!

This Should Be the First Performance Mod on Every Truck

GuitarmageddonZL1 installs a Cold Air Inductions cold air intake on his new Chevrolet Silverado. With noticeable gains in throttle response, the full review was based on the simplicity of installation. The only performance modification on his truck currently and with ease of installation for the performance gains, the proof is in the power. The benefit of the additional cold air into the intake, changes the throaty sound of the V8. The audible difference from the intake of more cold air is just one indication that the engine is able to get what it needs. The restrictive tubing plagues so many aftermarket cold air systems. A Cold Air Inductions cold air intake system is built to bring in the ideal amount of air flow for the intake. The sensors’ locations and connections are all built to fit around the engine and provide the coldest,  continuous air that a naturally aspirated engine will need. If you drive a V8 truck, a cold air intake system will also give some gas mileage performance since it will allow more efficient combustion in the engine. Most V8 trucks already have great power to the wheels but, when you need a boost for pulling a trailer or hauling a heavy load, the extra performance will be noticeable when you really need the top end performance.

Do Cold Air Intakes Really Work? Before and After Dyno Test

Street Speed717 dyno tests a new 2017 5.3 V8 Chevrolet Silverado before installing a Cold Air Inductions cold air intake. They install the cold air intake on the dyno and then retest to check performance gains. No tuning and no other changes. This is a true before and after test to show just the kind of engineering and performance that goes into Cold Air Inductions cold air intake systems. There is no long cool down period or reprogramming. Just an install on a stock, off the lot truck for more top end power and better throttle response.

 

Yes, it is a brand new 2017 Z71 Chevrolet Silverado, but it is worth it to have the best aftermarket parts if you are looking for the best performance from any vehicle. The Cold Air Inductions cold air intake system is built to perform and add power to any vehicle. The results are built into each system using dyno testing and thermal through the whole development process. With the majority of the airflow coming at a lower temperature and unrestricted, the engine management system can use OEM sensors to adjust the fuel mix for better engine performance. This means the throttle response will get a boost, the rear wheel horsepower will improve, and the fuel economy will be better since the air is better for the engine. The system has the OEM sensor ports built into the cold air intake to make installation easy and the cold air intake does not require extra tuning or programming. The sensor isn’t even disconnected. The sensor is just swapped from one port to the new system port. Everything is tested for the engine and vehicle specs to make adding horsepower and fuel economy as easy as a 20-minute installation.
