Some manufacturers of performance air filters make aggressive claims about their filter's ability to make power, but leave out the fact that their filters are not effective at filtering dust and dirt. Consider the wear and tear that will result from insufficient filtration."The Power Intake is the premier air filter designed to create pure
horsepower. The intake funnels used in racing machines take advantage of
a characteristic where air travels along the side of the side of
surfaces. However, the center portion of the funnel is virtually unused.
It is this concept that gave birth to the Dual Funnel design. A primary
funnel on the top portion of the air cleaner was inserted to channel
the air flow directly into the lower funnels at the base of the cleaner.
This design was a huge success on the former Super Intake model. The
Power Intake took this design and improved the flow characteristics. New
funnel design, element material and air flow channeling characteristics
make the Power Intake one of the most efficient air cleaners on the
market today. By constructing the upper and lower funnel from a highly
durable injected resin, engineers were able to construct the ideal
shaped funnel previously not possible with the stainless steel material.
Funnel shapes focused on increasing air speed without changing the flow
direction of the intake air. The result is a high speed and smooth flow
of air into the intake. The lower funnel has been engineered at a 14
degree curve for maximum efficiency. Also, the lower funnel position has
been made even closer to the base of the cleaner to reduce drag and
eliminate any _dead spotsb within the cleaner.
The Power Intake incorporates a newly developed material (layer filter
of dry density fibers) which improves the element density. This allows
maximum protection from foreign materials entering the engine. Compared
with past model, the Power Intake has also succeeded in decreasing its
ventilation resistance by about 10% (pressure loss) for maximum
performance and protection. The Power Intake is dry-type filter and is
trouble free. Some of the problems associated with wet type cleaners,
such as oil sticking to the air flow meter, are a thing of the past. The
Power Intake is basically maintenance free. Filter replacement, when
necessary, can be done at a very low cost.
- Air filter with minimal air-flow restriction
- Dual funnel filter system minimizes intake turbulence.
