The First Performance Mod You Should Do On Your Truck

Cold air intakes are an inexpensive way to increase your truck’s performance, providing better towing and gas mileage while improving its sound. The key is finding a high-quality system that cools and improves airflow.

That’s why GuitarmageddonZL1 chose an intake system from Cold Air Inductions and says it should be the first performance mod on your truck. We’ll cover the highlights of their video in this post and explain what makes our cold air intakes stand out from the competition.

Cold Air Inductions Chevy Silverado Intake Install


GuitarmageddonZL1 installed a Cold Air Inductions cold air intake on his new Chevrolet Silverado, which was the first performance modification he did on the truck. In the video, he comments on the simplicity of the installation and the noticeable sound differences.

“The cool thing about this intake is it does not require a tune so it’s literally just bolt-on-and-go.”

– GuitarmageddonZL1

Our cold air intake not only changes the throaty sound of the V8 but helps the engine make more power. Each intake system is built for a specific vehicle, allowing it to provide the ideal amount of airflow for the engine. This allows more efficient combustion in the engine, leading to improvements in horsepower and fuel economy. Even though most V8 trucks already provide great power to the wheels, the extra performance comes in handy when pulling a trailer or hauling a heavy load.

Cold Air Induction’s Performance Is In The Details

There are many great-looking air intakes on the market, but nothing matches the performance and engineering of our intake systems. That’s because each kit is designed and tested to fit a specific vehicle and provides a tight fit to keep the engine compartment’s hot air out of the intake.

“They measure with a scaled 3D measurement, so it fits perfectly – it’s a tight fit because of that and takes some finesse – but once you get it in, it’s awesome. A perfect fit.”

– GuitarmageddonZL1

Additionally, each system comes with the following:

  • OEM-spec tubing, fasteners, and connectors for the crankcase breather tube
  • High-quality, reusable eight-layer cotton fiber air filter
  • Plexiglass inspection window
  • Powder-coated aluminum components to reduce intake temps
  • Perfectly insulated air boxes to maximize cold airflow

In most cases, it only takes a few tools and 15-20 minutes to install one of our cold air intakes. However, you’ll immediately notice the improved power, throatier sound, and increased fuel economy.

The 5 Easiest Chevy Silverado Aftermarket Upgrades

The Chevy Silverado is a great truck. It’s reliable, tough, and comes with plenty of options. But there are some great upgrades that you can’t get from the factory. In this blog, we look into the five easiest upgrades you can make to your Silverado.

1. Exhaust Systems

Image Credit: SilveradoSierra

Whether you have a 5.3 or 6.2-liter V8 under the hood, there’s one thing your Silverado will be missing. And that’s a free-flowing exhaust system to unleash the sound of your motor. There are plenty of reputable exhaust specialists out there that offer bespoke systems for the Silverado and offer:

  • Better exhaust sound
  • More power
  • Improved fuel economy

Make sure to get a cat-back system rather than just a replacement rear muffler. That way, you get more power and better fuel economy, too.

Keep In Mind: Some exhausts can drone at cruising speeds, so try to drive to a vehicle equipped with the system you want first.

2. ECU Remaps

Image Credit: LSXMag

The ECU in a modern car controls everything from ignition to timing and fuel delivery. Manufacturers use generic ECU settings that can often be reprogrammed to deliver:

  • Better performance
  • Smoother power delivery
  • Better gas mileage

An ECU remap on its own may not deliver a major performance boost. But it is certainly worthwhile if you have done other mods to your truck, too.

Keep In Mind: You could invalidate your factory warranty with certain ECU remaps.

3. Suspension Upgrades

Image Credit: SilveradoSierra

If you enjoy heading off-road, then upgrading the suspension with components like leveling kits or lift kits can enhance your truck’s capabilities and give you:

  • Better off-road ability
  • Enhanced protection for the underside of the truck

Installing more capable shock absorbers and taller springs will give you an edge on tough trails.

Keep In Mind: An overly stiff suspension can make for a hard ride on the road.

4. Wheels And Tires

Image Credit: DuramaxForum

A tire upgrade is often done in conjunction with suspension improvements and can:

  • Enhance the look of your truck
  • Provide more ground clearance

Larger tires will improve ground clearance. And you can choose between on and off-road tread types to enhance grip levels. Upgraded alloy wheels can also give your truck a unique look.

Keep In Mind: Very low-profile tires look cool but can make the ride hard.

5. Cold Air Intakes

One of the best and easiest upgrades you can do is to install a cold air intake. Unlike the other options here, it can be done in your driveway. Cold Air Inductions intake kits are designed to work specifically with your vehicle and will give you:

  • Better intake sound
  • Improved performance
  • Better fuel economy

This results in real power gains that you can feel. And the enhanced intake sound is just icing on the cake. The increased airflow into the engine allows it to perform more efficiently. So your fuel economy will improve, too.

Keep In Mind: Only a high-quality aftermarket sealed airbox intake system will deliver these results.

The Best Chevy Colorado Cold Air Intake

Our cold air intakes are one of the easiest and most rewarding upgrades you can do to your vehicle. To demonstrate the benefits of our Elite Series Cold Air Intake for the Chevy Colorado, we sent a kit to HorsePower Obsessed to try out:


Why Cold Air Inductions?

Horsepower Obsessed hadn’t really considered installing a cold air intake on their V6 Colorado because most kits required the engine cover to be removed.

But that’s not the case with Cold Air Intake’s kit as it was designed to work specifically with the Colorado. Unlike some of the generic solutions from other suppliers. So, we decided to send them a kit to demonstrate just how effective our CAI cold air intake can be.

The Chevy Colorado Intake Kit

Our cold air induction kit for the Chevy Colorado is specially designed to work with that model. It uses all the original fasteners, OEM sensors, mounting points and connectors. This makes for an easy install that fits perfectly. The intake system includes:

  • Insulated Aluminum Air Box
  • Air Box Lid with Clear Inspection Window
  • Thermal-Coated Intake Tube
  • High-Performance Air Filter
  • Installation Instructions

Our Chevy Colorado intake system also works with the following trucks:

  • 2015 – 2022 Chevrolet Colorado 3.6-liter V6 and 2.5-liter inline-4
  • 2015 – 2022 GMC Canyon 3.6-liter V6 and 2.5-liter inline-4
  • 2016 – 2022 Chevrolet Colorado 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel
  • 2016 – 2022 GMC Canyon 2.8-liter Turbo-Diesel

The Installation

Installing the kit was extremely easy. It took just a few minutes and required just a couple of tools.

“I would definitely recommend Cold Air Inductions. The intake install was extremely easy.”

Justin, HorsePower Obsessed

Tools:

  • T20 Torx screwdriver
  • Philips head screwdriver
  • Flat head screwdriver
  • 8mm and 10mm socket with extension

Removal Process:

  1. Remove MAF sensor with T20 Torx screwdriver
  2. Use 8mm socket or flathead screwdriver to remove pipe between intake and manifold
  3. Remove stock airbox with Philips head screwdriver.
  4. Take out stock filter and bottom air box section. Two 10mm nuts hold it in place.

Installation Process:

  1. Slide MAF sensor into new intake tube.
  2. Install new airbox using stock grommets and connectors
  3. Connect new intake tube between airbox and intake manifold. Reattach MAF harness
  4. Install air filter and fit new airbox lid

And that’s it. The process is simple, and the new components fit as if they came from the factory.

Scientific Testing

Every system we build is tested in real-world conditions to deliver real-world results. To test our claim Horsepower Obsessed did before and after dyno runs and sound tests.

“I can definitely hear a lot more intake noise.”

Justin, HorsePower Obsessed

The sound from the engine bay before the new intake was hardly noticeable. Once it had been installed, it transformed the intake sound. Every press of the throttle released a far deeper and more impressive sound that really transformed the truck.

“It does give us some additional power, which is awesome.”

Justin, HorsePower Obsessed

The dyno tests also showed minor, yet consistent improvements to both power and torque levels. Wolfpack speed Dyno runs:

  • Best of 249hp and 228 lb-ft with stock intake
  • Best of 251hp and 230 lb-ft with Cold Air Inductions kit

The 2hp and 2lb-ft improvements were small, but like with any modification, a tune would really allow the Colorado to make the most of the colder air being sucked into the motor.

Upgrade Your Truck With The Best Chevy Colorado Cold Cold Air Intake

For an immediate boost in performance, economy, and intake sound, the Colorado Cold Air intake kit is tough to beat. As HorsePower Obsessed found, it’s easy to install, sounds great, and can save you money thanks to the reusable air filter and potential for better gas mileage. Other benefits include:

  • Small power gain – could be increased with a tune
  • Potential gas mileage improvement
  • Much better engine sound
  • Reusable air filter saves money
  • Extremely easy to install

Cold Air Inductions has been a leading manufacturer of sealed air box intakes since 2004. Our products are built to last and come with a lifetime warranty. Each kit is designed and tested to work with your vehicle.

Metal vs Plastic Intakes: Pros And Cons

When it comes to enhancing the performance of your vehicle’s engine, upgrading the cold air intake system is a popular choice among enthusiasts. One of the key decisions you’ll face is whether to opt for a plastic or metal cold air intake. Each type has pros and cons, but metal cold air intakes offer a better solution for achieving optimal engine performance.

Read on as we explore the pros and cons of both options and explain why metal intakes are the best option. 

Plastic Cold Air Intakes

plastic cold air intake

Plastic cold air intakes are a popular accessory on many aftermarket auto part websites. These intakes are easier and cheaper to manufacture, typically using a rotational molding process. This process creates parts by pouring hot, liquid plastic into a mold that rotates, filling the void. While this process is inexpensive, it produces lower-quality parts which vary in thickness and can create air turbulence or reduced air optimization that can hinder any potential performance gains.  

Pros:

  • Cost-Effective: Plastic intakes are generally cheaper to manufacture, resulting in a lower price point for consumers.
  • Lightweight: Plastic intakes are lighter than their metal counterparts, which can contribute to overall vehicle weight reduction.
  • Insulation: Plastic helps insulate against engine heat, preventing heat transfer and maintaining a lower intake air temperature.

Cons:

  • Durability: Plastic can be more susceptible to cracking or breaking over time, especially when exposed to extreme temperatures or mechanical stress.
  • Heat Soak: Plastic intakes may suffer from heat soak, where accumulated engine heat affects the intake air temperature, potentially reducing performance gains.
  • Limited Airflow: Plastic’s structural limitations may hinder airflow optimization, limiting potential power gains.

Metal Cold Air Intakes

Chevy trailblazer intake

Metal cold air intakes offer a range of advantages that make them a superior choice for performance-oriented drivers. While they are typically more expensive than their plastic counterparts, better performance gains and a more durable and longer-lasting product more than offset that cost. Typically made from aluminum or stainless steel, they are better at shedding heat and can help dress up your engine bay.    

Pros:

  • Durability and Longevity: Metal intakes are highly durable and less prone to damage, ensuring a longer lifespan and sustained performance.
  • Heat Dissipation: Metal efficiently dissipates heat, minimizing the risk of heat soak and maintaining a consistently cooler intake air temperature.
  • Improved Airflow: Metal intakes can be designed with smoother contours and larger diameters, enhancing airflow and potentially increasing horsepower and torque.
  • Engine Bay Aesthetics: Metal intakes often provide a polished and premium appearance that enhances the visual appeal of the engine bay.

Cons:

  • Cost: Metal cold air intakes are generally more expensive due to the higher manufacturing and material costs.
  • Weight: Metal intakes are heavier than their plastic counterparts, which may have a marginal impact on overall vehicle weight.

The Superiority of Metal Cold Air Intakes

CAI intake

Metal cold air intakes offer a clear advantage over plastic counterparts in terms of durability, performance, and overall value. The ability to dissipate heat efficiently, maintain consistent intake air temperatures, and optimize airflow can significantly enhance engine power and responsiveness. While they may come at a slightly higher cost, the long-term benefits and improved performance make metal cold air intakes a superior investment for serious enthusiasts seeking to extract the most from their vehicle’s engine.

DiabloFormula Racing Installs CAI Intake And Gains 14 RWHP

There’s no doubt that a quality cold air intake is one of the quickest ways to boost your vehicle’s performance, intake sound, and even improve fuel economy. But with so many systems out there it can be tough to know which one is best for you.

Sometimes you have to rely on the stats the manufacturer provides. But not every cold air intake is tested the same way. And real world performance doesn’t live up to the claims.

That’s why Cold Air Intakes does real power testing that results in real power gains. But don’t take our word for it, check out this video of DiabloFormula Racing installing one of our products and decide for yourself.


The TrailBlazer SS Cold Air Intake Install

DiabloFormula Racing has had some great results from Cold Air Inductions intakes in the past. So much so that they became a vendor for the brand. And seeing as they know just how good CAI cold air intakes are, Andy ordered a full intake kit for his girlfriend Steph’s Trailblazer SS.

Vehicle Specs

  • Chevy Trailblazer SS
  • 394hp 6.0-liter V8 (when stock)
  • K&N Air Filter
  • Rebuilt transmission
  • Stall converter
  • Modified headers and pipes
  • Upgraded cam

As a testament to how quick and easy the install is, Andy decided to do the entire job on a freezing day out in the snow. While it was snowing. Try that with a any other competitor’s product.

Cold Air Intake Kit Details

CAI intake

Every Cold Air Inductions kit comes with everything you need for a hassle-free install. And every component is built to the highest standards. We use OEM-quality fittings and keep all original sensors.

Andy also mentions the different styles of intakes available from CAI, with the option to go with a chrome or satin black finish:

“Personally I think the satin black finish looks better – it just looks cleaner because the inside of the engine bay is black and the cover is black – so that’s why we went with the satin black.”    – Andy, DiabloFormula Racing

CAI intake kits feature:

  • An inspection window to check reusable air filters
  • Powder-coated aluminum parts to reduce intake temps
  • Air boxes designed to maximize cold airflow
  • OEM-spec fasteners and connectors
  • OEM sensors are reused

The Install

CAI intake

“[The CAI intake] is a simple set-up. It literally took 10 minutes to do.”  – Andy, DiabloFormula Racing

To start with the Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF) is disconnected. The plastic engine cover is removed and then the original plastic intake cover is unscrewed. The Trailblazer already had an older K&N air filter installed which Andy removed. He also took out the screen from the MAF to further improve airflow.

The next step was to place the CAI filter and housing into the engine bay. Andy was surprised at just how easily it slotted into place. Bolting it down took just a few minutes and then it was time to fit the piping and connect it to the intake manifold. Then the vacuum hose was fitted, the MAF sensor reconnected and the plastic engine cover screwed back on.

The entire installation process took just 10 minutes. And the only tool required was a screwdriver. Not bad for an upgrade that delivers 14 rear-wheel horsepower, and improves the intake sound and fuel economy.

Cold Air Inductions On Two Guys Garage

A cold air intake provides a quick and inexpensive way to improve the performance of your engine. But not all intakes are the same. Many are made of plastic and absorb heat, which can limit or even eliminate any performance gain.

That’s why 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 underhood environment. The quality and performance speak for themselves, which is why Two Guys Garage used one in its 2010 Chevrolet Camaro V6 project.

Two Guy’s Garage Camaro Cold Air Intake Install

When it comes to cold air intakes, you have two options: You can either install a plastic tube intake and shield it off from the heat generated by your engine. Or, you can buy an actual cold air intake, like one from Cold Air Inductions, which is already set up for your vehicle. That’s precisely what Two Guy’s Garage did with their V6 Camaro.

CAI is taking cold air induction kits to the next level…they’re really paying attention to the details.

Two Guys Garage

They selected one of our kits because of the quality and details, which they said we’ve taken to the next level. Those details include an insulated, sealed box that isolates the intake from the rest of the engine, shielding it from heat. They also commented on our thermal-coated intake tube and how we’ve addressed the heat soak issue that robs most systems of any performance gains. These details allow our cold air intakes to provide gains of up to 18 rear-wheel horsepower on a completely stock Camaro.

Two Guy’s Garage also liked the Cold Air Induction kit’s ease of installation, commenting on the details like the fasteners. Our cold air intake system directly replaces the OEM air box, making it easy to install without modifications. Even the OEM washer bottle remains in the stock location.

Selecting An Air Intake From Cold Air Inductions 

Our cold-air induction systems are designed to work for your specific vehicle, optimizing airflow with minimal turbulence. Each cold-air intake is engineered as a complete, closed system, from the aluminum housing to the air filter. That’s why we’re confident the power we claim is the power you will feel every time you drive your vehicle.

It’s a really nice, high-quality system.

Why Does My Camaro Cold Air Intake Whistle?

We’ve seen feedback on some of the Camaro forums about a whistle people have noticed after installing a cold air intake. As the first company to develop and market a cold air intake for the Camaro, we wanted to clear the air on this issue.

The bottom line is this: Some cars, including the Camaro, have a whistle that occurs under moderate engine load. On the Camaro, the engine’s factory intake manifold is the cause of the whistle, not the air box, filter, or air tube from the cold air intake.

But we don’t want you to just take our word for it, so we’ve provided the video below.

2016 Camaro Air Intake Whistle

This video shows the testing we did on the Camaro to find the source of the air intake whistle. We put the car on our rear-wheel dyno, and with the factory air box in place, we removed the air filter and recorded the sound. At partial throttle, 38 percent to be exact, the whistle occurred. We then removed the factory air box and re-recorded the sound. In both cases, you can hear the whistle – either with the factory air box in place or without any air box installed.

The Whistle Is Less Noticeable With A More Restrictive Intake

You may wonder why you didn’t hear the whistling before installing a cold-air intake. It was there, but because the factory air intake is more restrictive, it reduces the volume of the whistle. Additionally, the air intake for the factory air box is mounted below the air box and draws air from low in the grille. The whistle will be more noticeable if you listen to the airflow near the factory air inlet.

Our cold air intake systems remove the airflow restrictions, allowing air and sound to travel better. That means any sound from the engine is much less restricted and more noticeable.

Selecting An Air Intake From Cold Air Inductions

At Cold Air Inductions, we build the best cold air intakes in the business. We take quality very seriously and thoroughly test every aspect of our cold air intake systems to ensure the best fit, finish, and performance. That’s why we could quickly and conclusively demonstrate that the factory intake manifold causes the Camaro’s whistle, not our cold-air intake system.

Our cold-air induction systems are designed to work for your specific vehicle, optimizing airflow with minimal turbulence. We focus on delivering a quality system that gives you more power, better fuel economy, and a good performance air-intake sound when you really lean into the throttle. Since 2004 we have 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.

Oiled vs. Dry Air Filters – Which Is Best?

Choosing an air filter is a bit more complicated than finding one the right size for your vehicle. In addition to the quality of the filter, you may also have questions about which is better – oiled or dry air filters.

There’s been a lot of debate on this subject, including which type of filter performs better based on filtration, airflow, longevity, and overall performance. Advocates can make a case for each type of filter, listing specific pros and cons, but when it comes down to it, the filter type our engineers recommend and trust at Cold Air Inductions is the oiled filter.

The Benefits Of An Oiled Filter

intake filters

Constructed from high-flow cotton, oiled air filters are treated with oil to trap contaminants. High-quality brands use oiled filters for products like cold air intakes because they aren’t as restrictive as paper filters, which rely on the thickness of the media to block impurities.

Oiled air filters can be cleaned and reused, while dry paper filters must be discarded after each use. So while buying an oiled filter is more expensive than a paper filter, you can save money in the long run by using one. Check out the video below for more info on the filter cleaning process:

When you’re ready to clean your filter, you can find our Recharge Kits here.

Air Intake Filters From Cold Air Inductions

All performance air filters are not the same. Many of them can rob your vehicle of some of its performance. That’s why Cold Air Inductions engineers every air filter to work for each of our specific cold-air intake systems. Simply put, they are designed for optimum airflow with minimal turbulence.

All of Cold Air Inductions performance air filters:

  • Are pre-oiled lifetime filters that are ready to install and use over and over
  • Feature interwoven cotton layers with a pleat count designed to maximize airflow and minimize turbulence
  • Feature a unique velocity-stack radius to minimize turbulence as air flows from the filter into the air tube of the air-intake system
  • Have an engineered stop on the base to ensure proper installation and allow more accurate readings from the MAF
  • Come with stainless steel clamps for a secure fit and a great look

Since 2004 Cold Air Inductions has manufactured the highest-quality air intakes in the industry, delivering real power and great quality. Check out our testimonials and customer reviews to see what people say about our products.

Cold Air Inductions Inc. Featured By MotorTrend And GM High Tech Magazine

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.
