Air Intake Duct Guides

Air Intake Duct Buyer's Guide

Summary:

  • Vehicles require a large amount of fresh air to operate smoothly. To efficiently capture air from outside, cars can be equipped with an air intake duct.
  • The air that is funneled is not just used for combustion, but also to cool the engine and its surrounding components.
  • Car air intake ducts are meant to improve airflow and could come factory-installed on sports cars or as add-ons to any vehicle.
  • In the simplest manner, air intake ducts use or manipulate air pressure so that air would flow into the duct.
  • Some of the ways that air intake ducts channel air into the engine compartment are by using the ram-air effect or by creating a vortex.
  • The idea behind an air intake duct is that it could get more oxygen into the engine by scooping in the cool air from around the vehicle.
  • The theory is that cold air has more oxygen because it is dense. When the air in the engine contains more oxygen, the fuel in the cylinder could burn better.
  • Factory-installed air intake ducts are usually meant to last throughout the life of the vehicle.
  • To last long, air intake ducts should be made to withstand being exposed to both high and low temperatures, various pressures, and the vibrations and movement of the vehicle.
  • If you are looking to improve the performance of your vehicle's engine by adding air intake ducts, make sure that it would fit your car's existing air intake assembly.
  • It would be easier to find an exact automotive air intake duct replacement by taking note of the vehicle make, model, and year.
  • Air intake ducts can cost from around $1 to $137 depending on factors such as brand, type, product fit, and mounting location.

Vehicles that use internal combustion engines require at least three elements to run—oxygen, fuel, and an ignition source. Also known as the fire triangle, each element represents a side of the shape, and the absence of one makes combustion impossible. While the ignition source is already in the engine and the fuel is fed from the car’s fuel tank, what helps get oxygen into the engine is the air intake system.

The air intake system is made up of a series of components specially designed to lead, filter, and regulate air flow from outside of the car’s hood and into the engine. To efficiently capture air from outside, cars can be equipped with an air intake duct.

What is An Air Intake Duct?

Vehicles require a large amount of fresh air to operate smoothly. With intake ducts, air flow around the car is directed into the engine bay. The air that is funneled is not just used for combustion, but also to cool the engine and its surrounding components.

In general, ducts are hardware made to channel air, in an optimal manner, in or out of an area. These are mainly classified as either passive and reliant on the natural flow of air, or active and dependent on machines like fans to move air. Naturally aspirated engines would use passive ducts while engines with turbochargers or superchargers would have active ducts.

Car air intake ducts are meant to improve airflow and could come factory-installed on sports cars or as add-ons to any vehicle. Since these are usually located around the engine compartment, these need to be designed and made with materials that are resistant to heat and vibration.

How Do Air Intake Ducts Work?

Ideally, as air in the environment moves around the vehicle, a properly designed and placed intake air duct would be able to catch this air and send it to the engine. There are many ways in which air intake ducts in cars channel air to the components under the hood. In the simplest manner, air intake ducts use or manipulate air pressure so that air would flow into the duct.

One way an air intake duct could function is by using the ram-air effect. This occurs when the dynamic pressure created by the vehicle moving against air is converted to static pressure. High speed or high static pressure prevents the occurrence of low pressure that could result in slow or backward airflow.

Another air intake duct design was made by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), the predecessor of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Initially intended to get air into the turbine engines of jet aircraft without causing drag, the design eventually made its way to race cars. The shape of the NACA duct creates a vortex that blocks out highly turbulent air and allows laminar airflow to be taken in.

How Do Air Intake Ducts Affect Engine Performance?

What engines need for combustion is oxygen, but air is a mixture of elements with oxygen only being a part of it. The idea behind an air intake duct is that it could get more oxygen into the engine by scooping in the cool air from around the vehicle.

The theory is that cold air has more oxygen because it is dense. On the other hand, the molecules in the air become looser as the temperature goes higher. This means warmer air could contain less oxygen, and even have room for moisture.

Unfortunately, due to the heat from the engine and its surrounding components, the air under the hood would be warm. If the air intake duct is designed and placed properly, it could capture cold air from outside the engine compartment and use the pressure to pack in more air and oxygen into the air intake system.

When the air in the engine contains more oxygen, the fuel in the cylinder could burn better. Each combustion stroke could generate more power when fuel burns completely. This could result in not just better performance, but also more efficient fuel consumption.

How Long Should the Air Intake Duct Last in a Car?

Factory-installed air intake ducts are usually meant to last throughout the life of the vehicle. However, these could quickly wear out or break due to different circumstances such as potentially damaging debris getting into the air intake duct.

In the case of add-on air intake ducts, the durability would depend on material and design. To last long, it should be made to withstand being exposed to both high and low temperatures, various pressures, and the vibrations and movement of the vehicle.

Getting Air Intake Ducts

If you are looking to improve the performance of your vehicle's engine by adding air intake ducts, make sure that it would fit your car's existing air intake assembly. For instance, a cold air intake duct might not work in a similar way as a turbocharger air intake duct. Stock vehicles with naturally aspirated engines, however, might be able to use universal air intake ducts.

Another factor to consider would be the mounting location. Some types of air intake ducts according to placement include bumper air intake ducts, fender air intake ducts, and radiator support air intake ducts.

For cars with factory-installed air intake ducts, it would be easier to find an exact automotive air intake duct replacement by taking note of the vehicle’s make, model, and year. It is important the replacement fits perfectly with the other air intake system components for it to work as intended. Any space or misalignment could affect the airflow and mitigate any potential benefits.

On CarParts.com, air intake ducts can cost from around $1 to $137 depending on factors such as brand, type, product fit, and mounting location. These can be bought individually or in sets of at least two. To make your search easier, you can input your vehicle’s year, make, and model in the search tool. These details would help filter the available products that are compatible with your vehicle.
