Performance air intakes for the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ use a large diameter, non baffled intake tube with an optimized air path and cone style air filter to allow more air to enter the intake manifold at a greater velocity. A performance air filter for the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ allows the engine to run more efficiently and will add more power and torque to the car while reducing fuel consumption.
The factory air intake on the Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ includes baffling inside the intake to reduce engine noise, which slows down the air charge and adds turbulence. Performance air intakes do no include sound reducing features and are perfect for drivers who want more power and a more aggressive engine sound. For performance air intakes that do not increase engine noise, a Scion FR-S and Subaru BRZ performance air filter will allow more air to flow through the factory intake.
Short ram style performance air intakes have been dyno proven to add 10 wheel horsepower and 10 lb-ft of torque, which is equivalent to a 15 horsepower, 15 lb-ft of torque gain at the engine.
