The popularity of trucks continues to remain strong, despite a strong “green movement” and ever-tightening emissions regulations. The truth of the matter is, many performance enthusiasts are also truck guys and when they’re not hauling their race car to the track they’re behind the wheel of their daily pick-em-up. Naturally, there’s always a need for more power and efficiency, and that’s where companies like AIRAID come in with their MXP line of products.
Simple Power Solutions for the 2014-15 6.2L Silverado/Sierra
The 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 promises more refinements and creature comforts than ever before, but the real news is the additional power on tap. The long-anticipated arrival of the 6.2L EcoTec3 engine is rated at an impressive 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, but AIRAID was able to unlock even more by eliminating restrictions in the factory intake system and optimizing airflow. The new AIRAID MXP Cold Air Intake System for the 2014 6.2L Silverado 1500 delivers additional power and better fuel economy with a simple bolt-on installation.
Like previous models, the latest AIRAID Cold Air Intake for the Silverado utilizes a new intake tube that optimizes MAF sensor location while improving airflow to the engine. The intake tube is attached to a new one-piece roto-molded intake box that utilizes the factory cold air scoop, plus adds an additional large cold air scoop beneath the intake box.
The top of the airbox features blade-style weatherstripping, that seals against the hood to keep hot engine compartment air away from the filter. The cold air is fed to a massive 1300 cfm air filter that is available with either oiled composite filter media or dry SynthaMax non-oiled filtration technology. The SynthaMax dry filter is available in traditional red or new color-fast dyed blue filter media.
The AIRAID MXP system for the 2014 6.2L Silverado 1500 works with the factory tuning; simply bolt it on and enjoy the additional power on tap along with better fuel economy. All necessary hardware is included as well as easy-to-understand installation instructions written with the do-it-yourselfer in mind. The filter is even backed by AIRAID’s exclusive “No-Hassle” Warranty. For more information, visit www.AIRAID.com or call 800-498-6951.
