Built Diesel Tough
Traditionally, diesel engines have huge torque due to their long stroke. Torque helps with the heavy lifting and hauling most associated with diesel vehicles. Still, since even a large diesel engine usually cannot get above 2,000 RPM, horsepower never was much of a consideration.

Simply Better
However, within the last decade, diesel performance received a boost with the use of common-rail direct injection and turbochargers that increased diesel power levels beyound 300 HP and 600 ft-lb of torque. Always striving to take performance a step further, AIRAID recognized the ongoing need to optimize diesel engine output and answered with its technologically advaced intake systems.

MXP Series - system features an even larger filter with more dirt holding capacity for longer service intervals and a large, Deep-Breathing, one-piece rotational-molded air box with a ram-style inlet. The new air box makes maximum use of the area for filter housing and includes a lower air scoop for additional air flow shielded from the heat of the engine compartment.

CAD (Cold Air Dam Intake) - Designed to work in today's high-tech vehicles, the CAD series is setting new standards in automotive performance and innovation. Designed for applications in which the original filter location provides maximum airflow. The CAD helps to isolate excessive hot air away from the filter. This provides a much denser airflow charge.

QF (Quick Fit Series) - The Quick Fit Series Intakes are based on our CAD intake design but are engineered to fit in the original filter base using the OE mounting clips and clamps. The Quick Fit installs in just minutes with the ease of replacing a stock filter.

Choose from a AirAid oiled filter (SynthaFlow) or non-oiled filter (SynthaMax)
What's the difference?
SynthaFlow filter are built using multiple layers of cotton gauze combined with a set of unique synthetic materials that results in superior filtration. This maximum filtration is provided with no sacrifice to airflow that gives you maximum horsepower, torque, and fuel economy. This oiled filter provides the best combination of airflow and filtration and only requires servicing every 30-50K miles. The servicing is simple, although it takes a little time for your filter to dry after cleaning. It’s always a good idea to have a spare filter to replace it with so that your vehicle is always raring to go.

SynthaMax filters are made of 100% synthetic materials. These filters increase efficiency in your filtration and airflow by 99+%. The great thing about SythaMax is that these filter are non-oiled, which means that servicing the filters is much easier and does not require an AirAid Serving Kit. Regular household detergents are all that’s needed to restore this filter. Although the servicing of this filter is required more often, many people find that not needing to buy a servicing kit is more than enough reason to choose SythaMax. Even after many services, your filter will still maintain that iconic red look that you want in your AirAid filter.
