It's simple physics. Increasing air flow helps increase performance! When you add a TRD Performance Air Intake System to your car or truck you get all the benefits of free-flowing colder air. These systems have been dyno tested to deliver enhanced horsepower and torque for superior acceleration, plus more pulling power.
Cold air is denser, which results in more oxygen per volume. This oxygen rich air packs more punch giving your engine more power. Not only does the Performance Air Intake System send colder, more oxygen dense, air into the engine's combustion chamber, it also increases overall airflow. The denser high-flowing air gives your engine the oxygen it needs for maximum power output and efficiency.
You might think that a small thing like increasing cold air flow would not be that important but sometimes it is the little things that make a big difference. Free flowing cold air helps your engine breathe easier, giving your engine the added oxygen that it needs for optimum performance.
The TRD Air Intake Systems are developed using OE Engineering Information. In this case, that’s important because the mass airflow sensor – a critical component of the engine management system – is located in the intake area and must be accommodated in the design of the air intake.
These systems produce power increases, along with being tuned to deliver the intake sound that many performance customers want.
The intake design works with the factory ECU and emissions system and is 50-State Emissions Legal. These systems have been dyno tested and deliver an increase in both horsepower and torque.
