-- Vividracing Air Intake systems come in many different styles and can be constructed from plastic, metal, rubber (silicone) or composite materials (fiberglass, carbon fiber or kevlar). Due to the limited time air actually remains inside the intake tubing, the materials often do not impact a kit's ability to deliver cool air. The most efficient intake systems utilize an airbox which is sized to compliment the engine and will extend the powerband of the engine. The intake snorkel (opening for the intake air to enter the system) must be large enough to ensure sufficient air is available to the engine under all conditions from idle to full throttle. If the intake opening has an unrestricted opening - no screens or other obstructions - the opening need not be larger than the inside diameter of the engine's throttle body, airhorn, or carburetor throat. Under some conditions Intake system efficiency can be lost if the intake opening for the airbox is too large.
Air intake system forms a very essential part of the car mechanics. It can be made of any material starting from plastics, rubber, and metal to composite material namely carbon fiber, fiberglass or Kevlar. Limited time results in minimal air intake as the air remains inside the intake tubes. Hence the engine cannot make use of cool air. The job of an air intake system is to make use of an airbox. This airbox is sized according to the various engines and extends up to the powerband of the specific engine. The opening, through which air enters the system, is known as intake snorkel. Care must be taken to ensure that sufficient air is always available under all conditions of the engine, whether it is idle or full throttle. The opening must be ensured to have the diameter not larger than the inside of throttle body of the engine, its airhorn or even carburetor. For more information visit http://www.vividracing.com
