Video Download: Engine Dress Up & Cold Air Intakes
Dressing up an engine has never been easier and thanks to manufacturers like Transdapt the process keeps getting better too. Join Cam Benty as he visits the folks at ChopIt Kustoms in Stanton California to upgrade the engine compartment of our project ’68 Camaro. Nick Fioto of Chopit demonstrates the process of tearing down the engine to properly paint and detail the engine in the car. Once the paint is dry, Gary Fioto joins Nick as they upgrade numerous components, including chrome brackets, valve covers, dipstick tube, oil fill tube, brake reservoir cap, thermostat housing and more.
A proven way to add power is to keep the air coming into the engine cool. Cool air is denser and dense air can hold more fuel, which all equals more power. We visit one of the pioneers in Cold-Air Intakes, Amir Rosenbaum of Spectre Performance as he demonstrates Cold-Air Intake upgrades on three popular yet different types of cars. Our project cars include a 1970-1/2 Camaro, Late model Camaro and a late model Jeep Wrangler.
Rosenbaum backs up his Cold-Air Intake claims with a real world dyno-testing, as our project late-model Camaro boasts a 5% increase in horsepower in just a mater of minutes for the installation. If you’re interested in adding both power and fuel mileage to your ride a cold-air intake is an economical choice to get both.
