Based in Riverside, California, Airaid is a 19-year specialist in aftermarket air cold intake systems. The brand offers a wide range of air intakes for various vehicle makes and models, as well as individual air intake components and custom units to accommodate special performance requirements. These Airaid products boast significantly increased flow of filtered air to the engine, resulting in noticeable increase in horsepower and torque as well as a longer engine service life. Whether it is an everyday commuter or a tuned street racer, any modern automobile can benefit from Airaid air intakes.
Airaid started out in 1997 manufacturing air filtration products for light trucks and SUVs. The first Airaid kits featured a distinct open-element cotton gauze filter with a specially-designed intake tube, resulting in an easy-to-install unit that boosted airflow, horsepower and torque.
Within a short span of five years, Air Raid\'s cutting-edge air intake systems became industry bestsellers. The brand introduced its first premium air filter models in 2002, further expanding its dominance in air filtration solutions for both gasoline and diesel power plants. Today, Airaid boasts a wide variety of air intake system products, including complete air intake system kits, OEM replacement filters, and throttle body spacers.
The \'power principle\'
Airaid builds its products around the so-called & \'power principle\', wherein better air flow to the engine results in improved horsepower and torque. This is why Airaid\'s air intake systems are computer-designed, dyno-tested and tuned to allow the most amount of air as safely as possible into the engine. But it isn\'t just about more air, as Airaid\'s air intakes also ensure that the air that goes in is cold. Cold air has more oxygen molecules than hot air, which in turn leads to a more efficient combustion. The Airaid intakes utilize a state-of-the-art Cold Air Dam (CAD), which separates the Airaid filter from the hot engine to prevent it from heating up. These products are also compliant with all national emission standards and are backed with a lifetime warranty.
A wide selection of air intakes to choose from
Car owners can choose from a wide selection of air intake systems from Airaid, with each one offering their own set of advantages. For those looking for a simple and effective kit, Airaid offers its classic cold air intake system, which replaces the factory air filter with a time-tested cold air intake design. The brand also offers specialized air intake systems for certain applications, such as those for muscle cars and Jeep trucks. And for fully customized and tuned cars, Airaid also offers U-Build-It (UBI) air intakes wherein buyers can choose the components to create a custom performance air intake system.
Innovative air filtration and circulation solutions
In addition to complete cold air intake kits, Airaid also offers direct replacement and performance air filter units and throttle body spacers. These components can be installed onto the air intake system on any modern automobile with little or no modification whatsoever and immediately results in improved filtration and airflow velocity for a more efficient burn.
