The AEM 41-1408DS Performance Air Intake System replaces the restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing in some Subaru BRZ and Scion FR-S models. The air intake system comes with a black rubber topped AEM high-flow air filter and a lidded, AEM embossed heat shield that installs into the previous air box space. Air is directed through a custom-tuned polyethylene intake tube and into the engine’s throttle body. The greatly reduced air-flow restriction is designed to produce more horsepower and torque from your vehicle’s engine. The AEM Dryflow air filter is made from an oil-free, synthetic filter media that can be used for up to 100,000 miles before servicing is needed (depending on driving conditions). The air intake is designed for easy installation and requires commonly available tools to do the job. The intake tube accommodates factory emissions control devices including crank case vent hoses, air temperature sensors and mass air sensors where applicable. This air intake system comes with AEM’s Lifetime Limited Warranty. Some AEM air intakes are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards while others are CARB exempt and 50 state legal. Check the AEM catalog or website for vehicle applications and specific CARB status for each vehicle and air intake.
The BRZ cold air intake is the latest in cold air intake technology. It has been created to be a much more efficient way to cool your engine than the air filter system that comes with the factory air box. Because this system is a closed loop system, you do not have to worry about air leaking out of the airbox or into the engine when you turn on the engine. The system also uses less fuel because the intake air and the exhaust air are both going through the same place. This means less time is spent on waiting for the air to exit the engine. The system also allows for more airflow through the engine so you are getting maximum power and horsepower from your car without wasting fuel.
The BRZ cold air intake also features a dual flow sensor that will allow you to get the correct amount of airflow for your engine at all times. This means that if there is a slight restriction in the flow of air through the system, you will know exactly where it is and what to do about it. If it is an excessive restriction, then you can simply replace the filter. When you replace the filter, you will be able to put it back where it goes and not worry about it going all over your engine compartment.
