BMC Air Filter has an outstanding reputation for high performance air filters and air intake products. They are based and build their kits right here in the U.K, and they are a longstanding member of VDAT Germany, one of the leading car tuning associations in Europe.
Tuners and gearheads alike often begin their fledgling amateur career by exchanging exhaust and intake manifold parts, but the next step beyond a performance BMC Air Filter and exhaust is a forced air induction kit. BMC has many options for these performance upgrades, and thanks to their universal mounting system they probably have a kit that fits your car. Let's take a look at how you can add additional power and torque to your car with minimal effort and expense.
Many tuning and car performance enthusiasts start out by exchanging their factory paper filter with a high performance cotton gauze air filter from BMC Air Filters. There comes a point in time though when you are ready to step up your performance a little more. One of the easiest ways to accomplish this is to add a performance forced air induction kit to replace your factory air filter box.
Often referred to as forced air induction kit or ram air kit (it goes by many names), air induction kits typically replace the factory filter box with a short aluminum tube and conical air filter.
These kits can pull in massive quantities of air into your car's combustion chambers, increasing power per stroke and making every cylinder firing more fuel efficient. Essentially, more airflow means more oxygen, and more oxygen means a bigger bang every time your motor burns fuel. The bigger the bang, the better your power output.
There are few upgrades as easy to install as a BMC CDA Induction kit. Just remove the factory airbox from the intake manifold (you may need to loosen a few screws and remove a hose or two), and then install the CDA induction kit in its place.
The CDA is constructed of ultra-lightweight carbon fiber, and contains an internal filtering element that massively increases airflow of oxygen rich air and feeds it directly into your engine's combustion chambers. Not only does it efficiently and effectively eliminate airflow contaminant particles, but it also cranks up your engine's horsepower and torque significantly.
Furthermore, as an added benefit the open intake on the CDA kit also alters the sound of your engine at speed. Combined with a high output exhaust system, a good induction and exhaust combination gives your engine a louder, more aggressive roar when throttling up. This means as it goes faster, it also sounds faster, too.
Are you ready for that next step in your car's performance? Consider upgrading your air intake with a CDA air induction kit from BMC Air Filters.
Alfa Romeo is the go-to brand for cars that ooze luxury and style. It is one of the best known prestigious car manufacturers on the planet.
The company started life when Alexandre Darracq joined forces with an Italian group of investors in 1906 to make the Societa Anonima Italiana Darraca (SAID). This partnership was the foundation for this famous brand in producing top class automobiles across the decades.
By the 1970s, Alfa Romeo was thriving and unveiled its infamous 8-cylinder engine on to its all-new Alfa Montreal, which had gone to market in 1967. In 1975, Alfa Romeo then won the world ‘makes’ title for its phenomenal 33 TT 12. Near the end of the 1970s, Alfa Romeo won a number of races and broke many world records, plus it showcased the best-selling Alfa 6.
In order to boost sales even further, Alfa Romeo wanted to bring something new to the market so released a V6 version of the very popular Alfetta. By the mid-80s, models like the Alfa 75, Alfa Arna, and Alfa 33 were also launched with immediate success. Soon afterwards, Alfa Romeo joined forces with the Fiat Group and marketed the famous Alfa 164.
Alfa Romeo won the first World Motor Racing Championship in the year 1925. It’s even said that the legendary Henry Ford (founder of Ford Motor Company) respectfully doffed his cap each time an Alfa went by. Additionally, Alfa won the first Formula 1 World Championship of 1950.
Also by the 1950s, Alfa Romeo had beaten more than 62 world records with its speedboats, winning 26 World Championships and 25 European Championships. The president of the USA, John F. Kennedy, was even the proud owner of an Alfa Giulietta Spider.
When it comes to finding Alfa Romeo parts and accessories, it’s likely you’ll spend hours raiding every corner of the internet. Sounds like a lot of hassle.
