A healthy ride is a lot easier and more fun to maintain than a healthy body. Upgrading your vehicle’s performance and protecting it from wear and tear requires no working out, flossing or bending over and coughing. In fact, you can create a healthy ride with two simple add-ons: cold air intakes and floor mats. customized floor mats
Since it’s what’s under the hood that counts, we’ll start there. The more air your engine receives, the higher the output. But the difference you’ll find between a stock air intake system and its aftermarket counterpart is huge. Cold air intake systems provide an increase in the amount of oxygen used for combustion with fuel.
Most stock intakes are constructed with numerous twists, turns and chambers in an effort to stifle the sound coming into your cockpit. Unfortunately, this design greatly restricts airflow. Aftermarket air intake systems, like the Ram intake system, completely replace your stock components. In doing so, they provide a smoother pathway for air to enter the engine and allow for the greatest improvement to overall horsepower and torque of any other performance upgrade. Specific enhancements include: increased torque, a 1 – 2 miles per gallon bump in fuel economy (if you don’t go hog-wild on the throttle), and an increase of 5 – 11 horsepower. Last but not least, you’ll enjoy a throatier rumble to your engine at higher RPMs.
While the installation process differs considerably from vehicle to vehicle, most mount up in about an hour — some even go on in as little as 10 minutes. Most kits come complete with step-by-step instructions and only require basic hand tools, providing the ideal performance upgrade for the do-it-yourselfer.
