What is a cold air intake system?
A cold air intake is an aftermarket part that allows colder air into the internal combustion engine. Cold air has a more compact oxygen per volume than warm air, resulting in improving performance, efficiency and fuel economy of the engine.
What are the 8 reasons to upgrade?
Increased horsepower. Due to the better application of cold air, installing a cold air intake system 21-796C will enhance your car’s horsepower by 19 HP @ 5100 RPM. That means estimated 334HP on your 2015-2016 Genesis Sedan stock. You can see the dyno test results here
Improved gas mileage. Since cold air intake systems almost equalizes air to fuel ratio, your car would get a better fuel economy. Hence, your 2015-2016 Sedan would have about 3 to 6 mpg extra, on top of the original 15 - 27.4 mpg.
Better torque and acceleration. More oxygen means more cylinder pressure, resulting in stronger torque at 19.6 lb-ft. Hence, your V6 3.8L engine will accelerate faster at a total of 312.6 lb-ft of torque.
Reusable filters. Instead of the stock air filters, you can wash, rinse and reuse the non-woven synthetic air filter. If you want to replace it, its part number is 21-2059DK. You can’t keep washing it forever. As a rule of thumb, make sure to replace it every 25,000 miles.
Looks more aggressive. The cold air intake system includes a red non-woven synthetic air filter that is round and immediately visible when you open the hood. It’s the first thing that catches your eyes with its gunmetal gray intake pipe made of aluminum.
Engine sound is enhanced. The sound of your engine breathing in the air is powerful and much more fierce with the aftermarket air intakes.
