Will Upgrading My Cold Air Intake Improve Sound?

Upgrading your stock air intake comes with several benefits. And, yes, an improved intake sound is one of them. In this blog we will examine why this happens and how it affects your vehicle.

What Does A Cold Air Intake Do?

  • Increases power
  • Improves fuel economy
  • Enhances intake sound

A properly designed cold air intake does exactly what it says on the box. It allows cold air to be sucked into the engine.

Cold air is dense, which means more oxygen for your engine. The end result is more power and better fuel economy. And, of course, a deeper, more aggressive intake sound.

How Does The Intake Sound Change?

  • Deeper, sportier sound at full throttle
  • No drone or noise when cruising

The less restrictive design of our cold air intake systems allows more air to be sucked into the engine. This results in a more pronounced intake sound, adding a sporty edge to your vehicle.

Unlike most aftermarket intakes, there is little to no difference in the sound at part throttle or when cruising.  Our customers love the way the intake sound transforms their vehicles.

“Looks and sounds great! Very easy to install.”

– John B. (After installing a CAI kit in his Chevy Camaro)

The Limitations Of Stock Intakes

Stock intake systems are designed and engineered to meet 3 very manufacturing guidelines. They must:

  • Meet prevailing regulations
  • Be cost-effective to make
  • Be easy to install

An auto manufacturer must design an air intake that is cost-effective and easy to install on an assembly line. It must also meet regulations in the markets where it will be sold.

The end result is a stock intake that is severely restricted. Most are made of non-insulated plastic and have restrictive designs that suck in hot air and have little to no intake sound.
