Air Raid company was founded in 1997 when it began developing and manufacturing air intake systems for light trucks and SUVs, The first AIRAID® kits combined an open-element cotton gauze filter with an intake tube to produce an innovative, easy-to-install intake kit which dramatically increased air flow, horsepower and torque while improving overall engine performance.
The Complete Power Package
Call it the Power Principle: Better breathing equals more horsepower and torque. In order to fully understand this philosophy, you have to get down to basics. Since an engine is essentially a giant air pump, improving the air flow efficiency creates more power. On most stock intake systems, the main air flow restrictions are the intake box, the actual air inlet to the box and the paper air filter inside.
The best way to bolt on more horsepower and torque while improving air flow to a gas engine is with an AIRAID® Intake System. All AIRAID® Intake Systems are computer designed, dyno tested and tuned to extract maximum performance for each application.
Cold Air: The Secret Weapon
Improving airflow to the engine is just one part of what AIRAID® Intake Systems are designed to accomplish. It is a scientific fact that cold air is denser than hot air, so therefore cold air packs more oxygen molecules into an engine. More oxygen means more complete combustion, and more combustion equals more power. AIRAID® Intake Systems replace your vehicle’s restrictive factory air box with a computer-designed Cold Air Dam (CAD), which separates the AIRAID® premium filter from hot engine compartment air while supplying the filter with plenty of cool outside air. This cool, dense air charge is the key to getting more power from your engine. Most AIRAID® Intake Systems are smog-legal and utilize factory mounting points for ease of installation. Last but certainly not least, all AIRAID® products are constructed using the finest materials available today and backed by our Lifetime “No-Hassle” Warranty.
