How Does An Air Filter Improve Performance?

How Does An Air Filter Improve Performance?

You wouldn’t put a bunch of junk food on your plate if you wanted to stay healthy and in shape, right? So why would you allow harmful debris to enter the engine of your car? You wouldn’t! And that is the whole point of your car’s air filter system: keeping the bad bits out of the rest of your engine so it can perform optimally all the time. Dust, dirt, flakes of who-knows-what coming off the highway, and even insects would have free reign to destroy the inside of your car if it weren’t for this underappreciated piece of equipment.

With an improved or customized air filter system that is regularly maintained or changed, you can expect the following benefits:

  • Power and performance: We have talked about the importance of oxygen for your car’s engine in blog entries before but it bears repeating here. The more oxygen your engine can take in, the better rev, acceleration, and fuel efficiency you can expect. If you start replacing oxygen molecules with stray particles of dirt and what not, say goodbye to optimal performance. A proper air filter will ensure that only usable, clean air gets into your engine.
  • Take care of Mother Earth: What goes into your engine is going to come out, eventually. That’s the end result you see coming out of your exhaust system or tailpipe. Catching most of the bad stuff on the way in through an improved air filter system helps keep the insides of your engine clean, which translates directly to cleaner, and lesser, emissions on the backend.
  • Live long and roll on: The modern marvel of the typical automobile’s engines consists of so many moving parts, a calculator is likely to lose count. Put even a grain of sand in the wrong spot and it can be just as damaging as a wrench literally in the works and kill the whole thing. Stop that harm from ever happening and let your beast grow old and gray with you by frequently cycling out air filters that get clogged up and well-worn.
  • Easy improvement: For those of us on a budget, revamping an entire automobile might not be on the close horizon. If you want to make an improvement for a comparatively small amount of money and in usually a comparatively brief amount of time, replacing or improving the air filter should be your go-to solution. Give it some fast maintenance and you are sure to see benefits right away.
