AEM Press Release – Ram 1500 Hemi V8 Makes More Power with Air Intake System from AEM Induction Systems!

July 28th, 2014 by Ernest Lo

AEM_21-8228DC

Ram Trucks separated from the Dodge brand in 2011 to become a stand-alone make. The Ram 1500 half ton pickup truck is rugged yet refined with advancements not found in any of its competitors’ trucks. The Ram 1500 offers a coil spring rear suspension to improve ride quality and handling without sacrificing payload capacity. Air suspension is an available option which offers automatic load leveling, lower suspension at highways speeds, and on-the-fly user adjustability. Also, the 2013 Ram 1500 was the first truck to offer keyless ignition in North America. Currently in its fourth generation of production, the Ram 1500 received minor changes for the 2013 model year. In response, AEM Induction Systems has developed a new Brute Force Air Intake System for the 2013 and 2014 Ram 1500 with the 5.7-liter Hemi V8 engine.

At AEM Induction Systems our engineers design our intake systems as a fully integrated component of the vehicle. Improved airflow is only part of the power equation. The 21-8228DC and 21-8228DP air intake systems feature an integrated heat shield to help deflect hot air from under the hood. Air then enters the relatively large and rugged AEM Dryflow air filter. The 21-2259DK Dryflow Air Filter is made with a special filtering media that exhibits a three-dimensional property which allows us to achieve high airflow and low restriction without compromising filtration efficiency or dirt holding capacity. Best of all, Dryflow Air Filter 21-2259DK is easy to wash and reuse with part number 1-1000 and does not require oil.

After clean air passes through the filter, a mandrel bent aluminum intake tube directs air into the engine. To satisfy personal preference AEM offers two durable finishes for the intake tube. 21-8228DC features a charcoal gray powdercoat finish, and 21-8228DP offers a bright, mirror-like finish. Coupling the aluminum intake tube to the throttle body is a molded bellows hose which absorbs vibration and engine flex during high-torque situations.

All of the design features of the 21-8228DC and 21-8228DP air intake systems are tuned to improve horsepower and torque delivery in the most used RPM range. On the dyno, 21-8228DC and 21-8228DP produced an estimated additional 10.2 horsepower at 5,100 rpm and an equally noticeable additional 10.5 pound-feet of torque at 5,100 rpm over the factory intake system. The added power offered by an AEM Brute Force Air Intake System helps improve acceleration, drivability, and towing performance.

The 21-8228DC and 21-8228DP AEM Air Intake System is an excellent performance upgrade for your 2013 or 2014 Ram 1500 with the 5.7L Hemi V8 engine. This is a complete air intake system including all the necessary hardware and step by step installation instructions. To provide peace of mind, AEM Induction Systems stands behind its products with a Lifetime Limited Warranty.

APR Tuned Press Release – New APR Carbon Fiber Intake System!

July 24th, 2014 by Ernest Lo

APR_CI100033

The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System is an attractive high performance upgrade for the latest 1.8T and 2.0T engines as found in various MQB platform vehicles.

The factory intake design has the foundation for excellent performance, but much of this is sacrificed in an effort to meet other design requirements. With requirements set forth for only supporting factory power output levels, low engine sound levels and long service intervals, there is plenty of room for improvement.

The APR Carbon Fiber Intake System increases performance primarily by improving mass airflow through the system while still proving adequate filtration. Expect greater horsepower and torque through the power band with a more direct and responsive feel upon pressing the throttle. Sounds from the engine and turbocharger are enhanced and some may even experience better fuel economy depending on driving style.

AEM Press Release – AEM Heightens Mazda Mazdaspeed3 Control and Handling with Performance Strut Bar!

July 23rd, 2014 by Ernest Lo

AEM_29-0003

Most car or truck enthusiasts picture a cold air intake system when they hear the name AEM. AEM Induction Systems has made great headway and built its reputation on cold air induction systems, but since 1987 Advanced Engine Management (AEM) has been in the business of improving performance. More power is only one aspect of the driving equation. Being able to properly control 263 horsepower in the turbocharged 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 is crucial to solving the performance equation.

When a car equipped with a McPherson Strut suspension system, like the 2010-2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3, is being driven through a turn there is inherent flex in the strut towers and chassis. It’s not uncommon to experience as much as 1/8” of shift in the strut towers during hard cornering. This flex can result in unpredictable handling of the car. An effectively designed strut tower brace will transfer the load incurred by shifting weight between the two strut towers and reduce the effects of chassis flex.

Unfortunately, many of the aftermarket strut tower braces available have a hinged design and therefore offer little support to the strut towers. An effective strut tower brace, like those from AEM, must be rigid throughout its length. Additionally, many of the strut tower braces on the market could interfere with performance upgrades such as a cold air intake system. This is where AEM Induction Systems factors part number 29-0003 performance strut tower brace for the 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 into the equation.

AEM performance strut bars are an excellent bolt on solution to the issue of strut tower flex in the 2010-2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3. AEM performance strut tower braces are constructed using thin wall mild steel tubing for a good strength to weight ratio. They are built with a rigid design to effectively tie the two strut towers together. Best of all AEM designed the 29-0003 performance strut bar with an AEM cold air intake system in mind. AEM performance strut tower braces will not interfere with the AEM cold air intake system for the 2010-2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3.

The AEM performance strut bar, number 29-0003, is designed as a bolt on suspension upgrade for the 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Mazda Mazdaspeed3 and reuses OEM mounting hardware. The 29-0003 performance strut bar will work with the factory intake system and is guaranteed to work with an AEM Cold Air Intake System. As with an AEM cold air intake system, AEM performance strut bars are designed to last for the life of your vehicle. Constructed in the U.S.A with high quality mild steel, and protected with a durable powdercoat finish, AEM warrants that its performance strut tower bars will last for the life of your vehicle.

K&N Press Release – Chevy Silverado / GMC Sierra HD Pickups with Duramax LMM Diesel V8 Engines can Increase Performance!

July 22nd, 2014 by Ernest Lo

K&N_71-3066

General Motors designed its line of HD full-size pickups, which includes the Chevy Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD, to provide high towing and payload capacities beyond that of a regular duty pickup. While the 2500 and 3500 HD trucks have proved themselves as a solid work-horse, they’ve also become very popular with the custom truck crowd. Lifted and lowered Duramax diesel powered Silverados and Sierras can be seen storming the streets with a commanding presence. Here to help increase the horsepower, torque, and boldness of these already menacing trucks is the new Blackhawk Air Induction System, 71-3066, from K&N.

The 71-3066 Blackhawk Air Induction System is expert-engineered and guaranteed to increase horsepower and torque. It replaces the restrictive factory system with a free-flowing, mandrel bent aluminum air intake tube to help minimize restriction, straighten, and increase airflow to the engine. The mandrel bent aluminum intake tube is finished in a durable flat black powdercoat for a stealth look under the hood. K&N 71-3066 incorporates a heat shield which helps guard air entering the engine from ambient heat.

For that true blacked out look K&N designed a new line of all black synthetic Dryflow air filters. Air induction system, part number 71-3066, includes K&N’s RU-5177HBK conical Dyflow air filter fitted to the inlet of the air induction system. K&N Dryflow filters provide excellent airflow rates as well as outstanding filtration efficiency. RU-5177HBK is washable and reusable and can go up to 100,000 miles between cleanings, depending on driving conditions. Use of Synthetic Air Filter cleaner, number 99-0624, is recommended when it comes time to clean RU-5177HBK. This Dryflow air filter does not need to be oiled.

Blackhawk Air Induction Systems are designed to perform as good as they look. The K&N 71-3066 air induction system puts down impressive performance gains in horsepower and torque. On the dyno, when installed on a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD 6.6 liter V8 diesel, the 71-3066 air induction system produced an estimated additional 12.53 horsepower at 2638 rpm and an incredible 27.67 pound-feet of torque at 2298 rpm.

The 71-3066 Blackhawk Air Induction System is an easy to install performance upgrade that can be installed in about 90 minutes or less using basic hand tools, and by following K&N’s simple step-by-step instructions. It maintains all necessary factory connections and does not require any additional modifications be made to the vehicle.

K&N backs the 71-3066 air induction system with the famous K&N Million Mile Limited Warranty so owners can rest assured that their intake system will stand up to tough conditions. Whether the 2007 to 2010 Chevy or GMC Duramax diesel is used for work or play, the K&N 71-3066 air induction system will provide durable and reliable increased performance for years to come.
