The Cold air intake is one of the popular mods there is, and one subject to the most controversy as well. Manufacturers of such systems advertise 5-20 HP gains, yet these potential gains are worthless if you are unable to keep the cold air feed Cold.
You can help maintain these gains with cold air feed protection . Not only do they help keep the cool air cool,They will also stop your cold air feed from being damaged by external heat from the engine bay.
Why does a cold air intake need to be cold
Cold air is a must for induction kits and Air filters to gain the maximum performance and to maintain optimum levels. It is important to keep intake temperatures low that is why this product has been developed the induction tube thermal barrier sleeve.
By maintaining a lower intake temperature, this helps to provide cooler airflow to the cooling system and MAF sensor, leading to an increased ignition spark and higher output of energy from combustion.
Also looking great in the engine bay and protecting the cold air feed from any heat damage meaning no longer is there a need to try and keep it away from major heat sources thus ensuring you can locate the cold air feed in the best place in the engine bay for maximum performance gain.
