Should I install a Cold Air Intake? - Do Cold Air Intakes increase horsepower?
Popular question here, "Should I install a cold air intake on my car?" and "Do cold air intakes really increase horsepower?" Cold air intake, ram air intake, short ram intake, aftermarket intake, intake system, are all words that both car people and the general public use to describe the same thing; taking the stock air intake off of your vehicle, and replacing it with a "cold air intake". The idea here is that your engine is getting "colder air" which translates in the high performance world, to MORE POWER!!! Yes!.... Just kidding, these intake systems, no matter how much you pay for them are more harmful than good. In this video I'll talk about the concept of a cold air intake or "ram air intake", how they "work", how they really work, and honestly, why you shouldn't waste your money, which pretty much answers the question, "Should I install a cold air intake?" Unless you want a "deeper engine sound" or you want your turbo to sound louder on a Boosted car, which we all know that obviously the louder your turbo is, the more power it makes...? Not so much, then don't go out there expecting to gain all sorts of power or any at all (without a tune) from your $300 "cold air intake" kit from some big name performance company. Sorry about being all over the place, my ADD kicks in and I lose my train of thought pretty often. I did attend Wyotech in Blairsville, PA where I took automotive and high performance, so hopefully you'll take my word about this stuff because I know how it really works or why these things don't really work.

G35 vs Supra
A modified Supra runs into a group of modified G35s, then lines up with a Vortech supercharged G at a light. The honks at the beginning are when we first notice the Supra, even though you can't see it from where my camera is mounted. We give him an open lane, he bites, and things get pretty crazy from there. Enjoy! Edit: Camera car = Saturn Sky Red Line
