J1 automotive launches their new performance air intake system for the popular Ford Fiesta Mk7 1.0 Ecoboost, suitable for 100PS. 125PS and 140 PS engine variants.
Based around a high quality powder coated aluminium heat shield, the intake kit also includes a performance pre-oiled cotton air filter, brightly coloured silicone hose elbows and machined nylon connector, which replaces the complete standard highly restrictive air cleaner, inlet duct and clean duct assembly. The kit is also supplied with all the necessary clamps and fitting instructions, and can be installed within 10 to 15 minutes, no technical skills are required, and no alternations or modifications are required to any other vehicle component. The silicone hoses are available in ‘Orange’, ‘Blue’ and ‘Black’ as standard, and a further eight additional colours through special order. Further details can be found here; http://www.j1automotive.co.uk/
All j1 automotive performance air intake kits are developed using the vigorous in-house APQP (Advanced Product Quality Planning) techniques, ensuring quality is addressed though-out the entire development process, and then rigorously tested in-house to evaluate expected performance improvements based on restriction loss, media velocities and filter efficiency. Tests are always conducted in accordance with ISO 5011, using SAE coarse dust to ensures adequate protection to your vehicles engine.
Restriction – This regulates the flow of air through the system, minimise the restriction, and gain a greater airflow.
Media Velocities – Speed at which air and particles transfer into / through the filter media, lower the velocities, and the greater the chance of particle entrapment.
Efficiency – The ratio of dirt held by the filter vs the dirt entering the engine, the greater the efficiency, the better the protection.
Air flow testing has shown that the j1 ‘Ford Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost Performance Air Intake Kit’ reduces the system restriction by over 70% when compared to the standard air cleaner and inlet duct system - plus subjective evaluations suggest a smoother more responsive acceleration, with an excellent induction noise.
This Fiesta 1.0 Ecoboost performance air intake kit is available through the j1 automotive online store at http://www.j1automotive.co.uk or through other online specialist retailers with an RRP of £210 (including VAT). An air performance air intake kit combined with additional silicone hoses to replace the secondary inlet duct and the boost hoses, is also offered as a discount bundle, saving over £20 on the combined retail price.
