Improve Your Performance with a Cold Air Intake
One of the best, quickest and least costly ways to improve the performance of your stock diesel pickup truck is to replace your stock air filter with a replacement cold air intake. Basically what this does is that it allows your diesel to breath a huge volume of air by removing the enclosed restricting factory air box.
Let's face it, car makers are endeavoring to balance low engine noise with general performance and satisfaction and those of us who love our power more aren't so disappointed with our diesels being a bit loud. After all it is a diesel truck and it should sound like one, right? You betcha.
Forget about replacing transmissions, rear ends, suspension and reworking motors to boost your performance for a minute and let's focus on getting more volume of air flowing into your diesel engine and then getting it out. The very first thing to do is to get a high quality cold air intake like for instance the US make Cold Air Intake by Icebox Intakes. Then you take that factory air box off and replace it with your new cold air intake.
Immediately what occurs is that from the very first time you crank up your diesel it will now be getting a free flow of air now that it's not constrained by that factory air box and you will feel the difference and you will hear it also. It won't be so much louder it is uncomfortable but you'll hear your turbo spooling now when you did not before.
Your throttle response will increase and this means that with the smallest touch to your gas pedal you will feel just like you woke up the beast that has been hiding under your hood. It'll just be more responsive. You give that pedal a little push and you immediately get some feedback or you give it a bit more pressure and you get a whole lot more than you were expecting before.
Now remember this is even before you think about replacing the other restriction, the exhaust. So just imagine how much better performance your diesel pickup will have if you do both.
