These are the brands we know best, but there are many others that we can offer as well. The use of a good cold air intake will add horsepower, often as much as 10-20 additional horsepower based on the combination of the intake being used and the vehicle on which it’s being installed.
Beware of claims of improved fuel mileage, however. In our experience no manufacturer will actually stipulate fuel savings because driving conditions and styles vary so much. We’ve also found that people are more prone to use the extra horsepower, which tends to negate any fuel savings. That said, a cold air intake can add a lot of fun! Give us a call or stop in so we can help you choose the right intake for your application and objectives.
We have sold all of these products and we like them all. Bully Dog is best known for their diesel performance products, but they also offer gas engine tuners. Banks Power is perhaps one of the most respected names in diesel performance while Superchips is perhaps the best known in gas engine performance. Hypertech makes a comparably good gas tuner, while Diablo and Edge make excellent tuners that span a wide range of applications. Almost all of these companies can supplement their tuner systems with real-time monitoring capability. Many of these systems can also reprogram tire sizes to keep the speedometer accurate even with off-road tires installed.
As always, give us a call or stop by and let us recommend the best system for your vehicle and intended use. We’ve used most of these systems in our own vehicles and can provide experience-based advice to help you choose the right one for you.
We do custom exhaust systems two ways. The first is to offer a vehicle-specific, pre-bent system from Flowmaster, Magnaflow, or a variety of others. These are typically cat-back systems that come from the factory with everything needed to complete a clamp-style installation. We can provide a welded installation for this type of system even if you bought the exhaust kit on-line.
The second is to build one for you in our shop with our pipe bender, using either aluminized or stainless steel pipe, and then combine it with the muffler that will give you the sound you’re after. When we do one of these systems, it comes with a warranty that’s good for as long as you own the vehicle. We can often install an aluminized system like this for under $300.00, depending on the configuration and the muffler selection. Give us a call and we can price a system for you!
