The AEM Cold Air Intake is AEM's 1st generation cold air intake system. The AEM Cold Air Intake is the air intake that revolutionized the sports compact performance scene by positioning the intake away from the engine, thus getting cooler air that has more oxygen for enhanced combustion. The original AEM Cold Air Intake is what put AEM on the map.
The AEM Cold Air Intake features a mandrel-bent 6061 aluminum inlet pipe for durability and light weight. Each AEM Cold Air Intake system's length and diameter has been tuned and tested to work with an engine's harmonics (resonance frequencies) to help carry more air to the inlet valves across the RPM range.
Each AEM Cold Air Intake features a one-piece, four-layer, cotton-gauze AEM air filter that provides superior filtration and meets or exceeds SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) filtration standards for automobiles. Each AEM Cold Air Intake filter body is made from urethane so that it won't shrink or crack like plastisol, the common material that other air intake filters are made of.
The AEM Cold Air Intake uses soft mounts for a guaranteed fit. The soft mounts on the AEM Cold Air Intake provide a flexible pivot point for the intake where it mounts to the chassis to prevent added stress on the mounting bracket, which could cause it to break. In short, the soft mount of the AEM Cold Air Intake flexes with your car's engine, so that the mounting bracket doesn't.
Each AEM Cold Air Intake is designed to fit a specific car application. All AEM Cold Air Intake systems come with a complete hardware kit. A comprehensive installation instruction guide is included with each AEM Cold Air Intake system.
Most AEM Cold Air Intake systems are 50-state legal. Every AEM Cold Air Intake is either C.A.R.B. exempt or pending C.A.R.B. exemption. All AEM Cold Air Intakes are manufactured and assembled in the U.S.A.
As with other AEM air intake systems, the AEM Cold Air Intake comes in a variety of colors: red, blue, silver, or polished. For the silver color option, the AEM Cold Air Intake features a high-gloss titanium-like powder coating that reduces heat soak and enhances its look. Please indicate your color choice when ordering this AEM air intake system.
