Founded in 1997, AIRAID® advanced the automotive aftermarket industry with the introduction of its AIRAID® Intakes brand of air intake systems. Initially developed for light trucks and sport utility vehicles, the first AIRAID® kits combined an open-element cotton gauze filter with an intake tube to produce an innovative, easy-to-install intake kit which dramatically increased air flow, horsepower and torque while improving overall engine performance.
Each AIRAID® product line is the result of exhaustive research and development. Their in-house engineering team consists of both mechanical and industrial design engineers using the latest 3-D CAD modeling equipment to produce advanced designs that make more power right out of the box. A portable 3-D scanner and rapid prototyping machine allows AIRAID® to test new products on their in-house Superflow flow bench and verify the unmatched fit, finish, and style that AIRAID® customers demand. All products are then tested on their all-wheel-drive Mustang chassis dynamometer to produce real-world performance numbers. A principal component of diesel performance is airflow and Airaid delivers without sacrificing filtration, in fact, superior filtration and flow is what makes AIRAID® Premium filters high quality. AIRAID® Premium Filters consist of multiple layers of cotton-gauze plus one layer of synthetic fiber material called SynthaFlow®, sandwiched between either stainless steel or aluminum mesh, depending upon the application. SynthaFlow® enhances dirt filtration down to two microns and is moisture resistant. AIRAID® Premium Filters are also washable and re-usable and are guaranteed for life. The casing of the filter is hand-poured urethane, which offers superior performance and durability, and won't shrink or crack from prolonged heat exposure under the hood.
