|Don't you want a better performing truck engine?|
Do you feel that your truck’s engine isn’t living up to its fullest potential or are you tired of paying tons of money on fuel when you know you should or could be spending much less? Adding a new aftermarket exhaust system and a cool air intake system will help increase fuel economy for your truck. While cold air intake systems and performance exhaust systems are two separate entities that work differently, they are both used for similar things: increasing gas mileage and fuel power.
Below is an explanation of exhaust systems for trucks and high-flow air intake systems, how they help maximize fuel economy and why you should consider getting them as an addition to your truck to not only save yourself money in the long run but help your truck run better.
|Make your engine look cool by adding a cold air intake|
Performance intake systems are considered one of the most efficient and least expensive methods of increasing not only your truck’s power but your fuel mileage as well. A cold air intake system moves the air filter outside of the engine compartment so that cooler air can be sucked into the engine for combustion. With cooler air bringing in more oxygen, (which is denser than warm air) into the combustion chamber, it means you are getting more power. Installing an aftermarket air filter is also pretty easy and can be done in a couple of hours with basic tool set and the vast majority of cold air intakes do not require any cutting or drilling. Or if you don’t feel like installing it yourself, you can take your car into Torklift Central or a body shop to have it installed. Adding a high quality cold air intake or aftermarket air filter is a great idea for your truck, especially if you want improved performance and power.
|K&N street legal performance filters|
A good thing to keep in mind before you do an air intake installation is that there are some systems that are not considered street legal in many states. California started the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and many states have also adopted the California emission standards including Arizona, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Washington and more. It’s good to do your research and figure out which truck air filters are street legal intake systems in your state or find ones that are legal in all 50 states such as the K&N Performance Filters. At Torklift Central we offer a variety of products that can increase your gas mileage and keep you street legal.
Aftermarket Exhaust System
An exhaust system works by gathering the exhaust fumes from the engine, converting them into non-toxic gases and then expels the gases into the atmosphere. If you have an exhaust leak or need to get an exhaust repair, it’s good to consider upgrading to an aftermarket exhaust system. A new performance exhaust system can free up some of the power in your engine by allowing it to ‘breathe’ better, making it so the spent fuel and air leave the combustion chamber faster than normal.

Many car manufacturers leave plenty of room for improvement when it comes to horsepower and performance usually only doing the minimum that is required by the government. An aftermarket exhaust kit is usually made of better materials, muffles the noise made by internal combustion and improve horsepower and optimize fuel economy. At Torklift Central we do all kinds of aftermarket exhaust installations for major aftermarket performance exhaust kits including Afe, Banks, Borla, Dynomax and Flowmaster.
If you are looking for ways to increase gas mileage or get a leaking exhaust repair, it’s good to consider upgrading to performance filters and performance exhausts. There are plenty of choices out there when it comes to aftermarket exhausts and cold air intakes, so make sure you do your research before you purchase one.
