aFe Air Intakes for Dodge Cummins

OCDiesel.com has it and if you have a Dodge Cummins then you should get it! aFe MAGNUM Force Air Intake Systems are one of the easiest ways to improve your old or new Dodge Cummins.

aFe has designed three different air intake systems to meet the needs of your power hungry engine. For the largest possible performance gain replace the entire air box and intake tract with our STAGE 2 open element air intake system. If you want to maintain a factory appearance our STAGE 2 Si sealed air box provides quiet power. For a great value and easy installation their STAGE 1 air intake systems adds instant horsepower and torque.

Airflow / Volumetric Efficiency
Huge, high-flow conical air filters are the first step to increased airflow to the engine. Steel heat shields or molded plastic air boxes keep hot air out and fresh, cold air flowing to the filter. Velocity stacks and precision-designed intake tubes provide smooth, uninterrupted airflow to the turbo or throttle body.

aFe Cold Air Intakes… Stage 1 or Stage 2? What’s the difference?

One of the first questions I  get about aFe Cold Air Intakes is “What’s the difference between Stage 1 intakes and Stage 2 intakes?”. The answer to the question is simple…  Stage 1 intakes replace the stock air box only and Stage 2 intakes replace the stock air box and the stock  intake tract.

Let’s ask a few questions…

1. How much power do you want?

Stage 1 intakes: Because it is not replacing the entire intake tract can give 1-10 horsepower and 10-20 foot-pounds of torque.

Stage 2 intakes: Because it is replacing the entire stock intake tract will give a significantly higher boost of 20-40 horsepower and 35-60 foot-pounds of torque.

2. How much money do you want to spend?

Stage 1 intakes: Because you are only replacing the air box you are going to spend a bit less. You’re also going to do less installing the system.

Stage 2 intakes:  You’re going to spend a bit more on this system because it replaces the stock intake tract. But, you get much higher gains.

3. What features do you need?

Stage 1 intakes: These will give you noticeable low-end torque gains. This air box will also provide you with a great engine noise improvement.

Stage 2 intakes: These will give you huge low-end torque gains and maximum horsepower gains. The open element to this system means a throaty sound with a mean growl.

Both systems are pretty easy to install at home in under 2 hours. They both use stock mounting points, work with stock electronics and do not interfere with the M.A.F. sensor. Both systems are a great way to add easy gains where it counts in a short period of time.

Snow Performance’s Diesel Boost Coolers for Ford, GM and Dodge

Stage 1 Diesel Boost Cooler

This kit progressively injects more or less water-methanol, according to manifold boost pressure. The system is applicable for turbo diesels making up to 25 psi of boost pressure. It has two dials to set the start and full points to tailor the delivery to your engines needs. Progressively injecting according to boost pressure allows for the most power over the widest range of rpms. Now with Lifetime Warranty.

Kit includes:

  • SHO (Special High Ouput) Pump
  • 3 Quart Reservoir
  • Bulkhead Fitting
  • Digital Variable Controller
  • 2 Nozzles To Cover a Wide Range of Horsepower
  • All Required Hardware Needed For Installation
  • Comprehensive Instructions

Stage 2 Diesel Boost Cooler

These kits work on exactly the same principle as the Stage 1 kits, except that the controllers are heavier duty and can read up to 100psi of turbo boost. This is the typical starting point for a mildly modified modern 3/4 or 1 ton truck with an aftermarket exhaust, intake and chip or programmer. It is capable enough for trucks running large or compound turbo systems as well. These kits allow for great horsepower increases and EGT reductions – expect about 70hp and 250 degree F EGT drop. Now with Lifetime Warranty.

Kit includes:

  • SHO (Special High Ouput) Pump
  • 3 Quart Reservoir
  • Bulkhead Fitting
  • Digital Variable Controller
  • 2 Nozzles To Cover a Wide Range of Horsepower
  • All Required Hardware Needed For Installation
  • Comprehensive Instructions

Stage 3 Diesel Boost Cooler

The Stage 3 Diesel Boost Coolers are some of the most comprehensive water-methanol injection kits Snow Performance makes. This controller senses not only manifold boost pressure but also exhaust gas temperatures. Using two inputs allows for the smoothest injection control. More importantly, it also keeps the EGTs as low as possible – if they begin to climb, even if the boost stays constant, the Stage 3 controller will read this and inject more water-methanol to compensate. The adjustments to the delivery on the fly are accomplished with two easy-to-use push buttons, allowing for more or less injection, or switching from both boost & EGT referenced injection (smoothest, best for towing and EGT control) to just boost referenced injection (most responsive, best for performance and racing). Now with Lifetime Warranty.

Kit includes:

  • SHO (Special High Ouput) Pump
  • 3 Quart Reservoir
  • Bulkhead Fitting
  • Digital Variable Controller with LCD Screen
  • 2 Nozzles To Cover a Wide Range of Horsepower
  • All Required Hardware Needed For Installation
  • Comprehensive Instructions

**Solenoid Upgrade (#40060) required for bed mounted reservoirs.**

NOTE: Stage 3 systems cannot be used with the HDHO pump.

Stage 3 MPG-MAX Diesel Boost Cooler

New from Snow Performance is the only system proven to increase fuel economy in all load states – empty or while towing. Special mapping and the most sophisticated 2d digital controller available result in 1-3 MPG increases! The MPG-MAX system does not require a sustained high load state in order to provide maximum fuel economy gains. The MPG-MAX system uses a new injection management controller that allows for a small, steady spray of water/methanol to be injected across the entire power curve, at anything over normal cruising boost. This provides an increase in combustion efficiency which provides more power without injecting more diesel fuel. This increase in efficiency translates into an increase in fuel economy. Typical fuel economy increases are 10%-15% or 1-3 MPG.

The MPG-MAX system has a secondary output that is used to activate a Power Mode. The more sophisticated microprocessor introduces a independently mapped second stage of injection. A larger nozzle is used to inject more fluid to make more power. The Power Mode activation point is adjustable for best performance. The net effect is smooth power in all engine load states with no combustion quench resulting in a true turn-on-and-forget system.

It also now has a brighter Green LCD screen that displays boost, EGTs, and injection pump output. This means a savings of $200-$300 in gauges you do not have to buy.Will not adversely affect particulate matter filter like most other power adders

  • Does not leave a signature on vehicles computer so warranty is not jeopardized
  • Comes complete with large 7 gal. reservoir for a truly complete system
  • The most advanced system on the market – true 2d mapping and 2 nozzles controlled independently for smooth power – always
  • The only system proven to improve fuel economy
  • Provides better fuel economy (1-3 MPG), more power (50-100 HP), and lower EGTs (150-300 F)
  • Dash mounted module – displays real time – no need for gauges

Diesel Stage 3 MPG-MAX Boost Cooler upgrades are now available for customers with existing systems. The 7 Gallon Reservoir (#40016) is recommended if a larger reservoir isn’t already being used. Please see product listing (#60005) and pricing below.

*Note – MPG MAX Systems can not be used with the HDHO Pump *
