|All engines - normal and racing - require rpm depending on a constant changing volume of airflow. The fuel management system will provide the right air/fuel mixture of aspirated air volume to enable maximum power output by minimising or avoiding airflow restriction. Non filtered air can cause engine damage. This is the reason why filters are in place to protect the engines during their planed lifetime.
The filter has to absorb as many dirt particles as possible without restricting the airflow required.
A reduction of airflow will lead to powerloss.|
|All RamAirs' C.E.filters (Car Elements) are manufactured using Aeriform technology which means that every single air filter has variable stage air filtration. Each filter is constructed in three different grades of foam to ensure maximum air filtration , unlike cotton/gauze filters. Cotton air filters have only one grade of filter media, which means that once this becomes contaminated with particulates the air flow quickly deteriorates. Laboratory tests have proven that RamAirs' Aeriform filter media will outlast all cotton gauze filters.|
|Normal engines for street use have airboxes. One of the reasons for this, is noise reduction. To generate maximum airflow race engines (with carburettors or fuel injection system) are normally designed with straightened airflow systems to guarantee the maximum amount of oxygen to improve combustion performance.
In the past, race engineers used special airflow designed rampipes with our filters to avoid loss of airflow (and power). Over time, engine protection (and durability) became extremely important so RamAir started to develop the known Aeriform Cleancharger Performance Filtersystems. This is designed to replace the airbox system and supply the volume of air (and oxygen) needed to guarantee the maximum output and at the same time the engine is well protected against debris and small broken car parts caused by rough racing activities.
We have used this experience to design 360 degree filter elements to replace the airbox and supply the maximum air required. These kits are individually developed for a specific model and type. The kits come with all fitting parts requested and full diy fitting instructions.|
