Checking Out the Camaro ZL1 Elite Carbon Cold Air Intake

Replacing Your Camaro’s Stock Intake with an Elite Carbon Cold Air Intake

If fast cars and horsepower are your thing, you’ve no doubt at least thought about replacing your stock air intake system before. Dyno tests show that after replacing the factory option with a cold air intake system, you’ll see a positive bump in horsepower, speed, and performance. Plus, it will generally sound a lot better, look more polished, and may even increase your fuel efficiency. So what’s stopping you? With the ZL1 Elite Carbon Series from Cold Air Inductions, you can easily replace it yourself.

ZL1 Elite Carbon Series Intake System

Before we jump into how to switch out your stock version for the ZL1 Elite Carbon Series intake, here’s exactly what you get when you purchase this option. Nearly the entire ZL1 Elite Carbon Series system is constructed of carbon fiber material, which is lightweight, extremely strong and durable, resistant to corrosion, and helps dissipate heat quickly. The intake tube is sleek and the air filter box/housing comes with a clear plexiglass window to see the filter inside the filter box and know when it needs to be cleaned out or swapped. The stainless steel clamps keep the system firmly in place when tightened down, and the flexible coupler makes it easy to attach to the throttle body. It also comes with a high performance air filter. This kit can be used for a 2017-2021 Camaro ZL1.

How to Replace Air Intake System

The process of replacing an air intake system might seem a little confusing if you don’t do a lot of work on your car yourself. But it’s really pretty simple, especially when using this kit because it comes with everything you need and a great installation booklet. Check out the video below to see just how easy it is.

  1. Start by loosening the clamps and screws on your stock or existing air intake. Then make sure to carefully remove the mass air flow (MAF) sensor and detach the PCV tube. When everything is disconnected, pull the whole thing out of the car.
  2. Next, it’s assembly time, which is super simple. Attach the carbon fiber intake tube to the high performance filter by screwing them together. Insert the air filter portion into the filter housing box, and pop it into place. Place the foam gasket around the lower intake of the filter box.
  3. Slip the coupler boot onto the throttle body tube (paying attention to the text that indicates which way it should go on). Then slip the intake tube into the other side of the coupler boot. For this reason, you should attach the intake tube side first, and then rotate the air filter box down into place.
  4. Tighten the stainless steel clamps around the coupler boot first to ensure it is snug. Insert the retainer clips on the air filter body into the grommets on your car to attach them.
  5. Last, plug in the PCV tube again and gently reinsert the MAF sensor into the appropriate place on the intake tube. As you can see in the video, it may be a tight fit, so take it slowly so as not to cause any damage.

And just like that, you could have a better sounding, better looking, and better performing Camaro. As you can see, installing a cold air intake system is not that complicated, especially when you use the ZL1 Elite Carbon Series. It comes with some great instructions that you can follow, or you can just reference the video above for a more visual look at the process.

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.

Void My Factory Warranty?

Will Using a Cold Air Inductions, Inc. Replacement Air Filter or Intake System Void My Factory Warranty?

Will a Cold air Intake Void my factory warranty?

No. In the United States, for the manufacturer of a warranted product (in this case, a vehicle) to void or deny warranty coverage of a repair due to the use of an aftermarket part (a Cold Air Inductions, Inc. air filter or intake system), the manufacturer must provide proof (evidence) that the aftermarket part is the cause of the necessary repair. These rights are protected under the Consumer Products Warranty Act of 1975 (also referred to as the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act).

A warranty is a guarantee or promise made by a manufacturer, and is included with their product at no charge when it is sold as new. “Extended Warranties” are not warranties at all, since consumers must pay money to receive their benefits. The proper name for an Extended Warranty is a Service Contract. These contracts may contain exclusions or clauses conditioning their coverages, and these may limit the consumer from using certain products (like aftermarket air filters or performance intakes) on their vehicle. Service contracts are not regulated by the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, and once a consumer signs an agreement, they are bound to the terms of that contract. In the event of a vehicle repair, the presence of an aftermarket part (even if it is unrelated to the repair) could void the contract and force the consumer to pay for the repair themselves.

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.
