Air Intake Kit Installations
Do aftermarket air intakes really work?
That's consistent with the manufacturer's claims. K&N claims that its best Miata cold-air intakes add 3-4 horsepower. So, on its own, a cold-air intake doesn't add much performance. The new, freer-flowing intakes mean the re-tuned ECUs and/or added turbos can do their jobs better.
Is an aftermarket intake worth it?
Compared to hot air, cold air allows more fuel to burn more efficiently, due to the increased rate of oxygen combustion. Because of this, installing a cold air intake kit may result in increased horsepower.
Does an air intake make a difference?
The good news is that although claims of actual horsepower and even increased fuel efficiency may vary, cold air intakes will in fact help increase your car's performance. But if you team up the cold air intake with other engine modifications, like a new exhaust, you'll create a much more efficient system.
How much horsepower does a cold air intake add to a v6?
It'll help your engine draw in more cold air, create a better throttle response and deliver more explosive horsepower. Once it's installed, this cold air intake setup can increase your horsepower by 8 to 10 percent and your torque by 6 to 10 percent.
Does cold air intake make the car louder?
Quick answer – Yes. The sound of your car will be louder and more aggressive with a cold air intake. Instead of loudness though, a cold air intake changes the sound of your car engine.
