More Air Equals More Power
For the automotive enthusiast who want all the power and torque he can get, aFe designed the top-of-the-line Magnum FORCE Stage 2 cold air intake system. Whether it is an spark-ignition gas or a compression-ignition diesel, the more air the engine receives, the more power it generates. For powered enhanced vehicles, whether equipped with turbocharger, NOS, propane, performance module; without more air, you are not getting maximum power. The Magnum FORCE Stage 2 systems provide all the air you need.
Compared to other systems, the
Magnum FORCE Stage 2 intake system replaces the entire stock air induction
system to the throttle body or turbo housing.
Remembering our motto “Stock Sucks”, we eliminate the stock air box,
the stock air filter and the stock intake tract.
The only thing retained is the stock electronics.
We make sure that the Stage 2 system works with the stock electronics.
In designing out the stock air box, aFe designs in the largest air box that they can for each vehicle application. Even though they make it as large as possible, they are careful to use that stock mounting points. There is no need to cut or drill anything when you install these kits. They make the air box as large as possible so that we can get the largest air filter.
At first glance you probably won’t notice the unique features that they design into each air box. Each of them is there for a purpose, either to make your job of installing the system easier or to improve the performance of your vehicle. Here are a few the features and benefits that distinguish aFe's Magnum FORCE Stage 2 intake systems:
16-gauge powder-coated steel – Durable, OE look finish
Trim sealed or covered – Seals out hot engine air
Secured PEM-nuts – Easier installation
Welded and preassembled sheet metal – Faster Installation
Pre-positioned opening for Stock attachments - No dangling wires, relocating hoses or tubes.
3-angle velocity stack adaptor on some applications
Powder-coated covers on some
Performance Starts With The Air Filter
By designing the largest filter for the largest air box, they are able insure that the vehicle is getting the maximum amount of air regardless of the performance upgrades.
FORCE Stage 2 intake system uses our conical universal clamp-on filters.
The filter is taller, fatter, shorter, or oval to insure maximum airflow for the vehicle.
Here are some common characteristics of the air filters:
The Right Flow At The Right Place
Letting more air in through the filter and keeping the hot air out doesn’t help much if you can’t get the air to the motor smoothly and efficiently. Some intake tracts are better than others but there’s always room for improvement. These intake systems use heat blocking molded tubes because you just can’t bend a steel or aluminum tube to accommodate the modern engine compartment. With a molded tube, you can remove kinks, sharp bends and obstructions that restrict airflow. By tapering the tube, you can accelerate the airflow for more torque and better throttle response.
Whenever a new intake tube is designed, the biggest challenge is the factory Mass Airflow Sensor. You just can’t place the MAF sensor any place. The modern MAF sensor is sensitive to changes in air speed and volume. Slight changes can improve performance or it can trigger the Check Engine Light (CEL). This tube is designed so that the factory MAF sensor is positioned in just the right place so that you get the best performance possible without triggering the CEL.
With the installation of one of the Stage 2 intake systems from aFE, you’re ready for other more upgrades like exhausts and performance modules that will give you even more power.
