Air Filters giving 20 HP

Another great myth we want to bury deep well: The air filters that ensure a gain of 20 hp. There is so much confusion with these issues, and in fact, they are so simple to see, that we hope to make it well explained so that no one is led to the error. How they work, how they do not work and what we can expect from them ...
Simple concept: The accelerator opens the throttle, allowing air to enter the engine, and that air when mixed with vaporized gas enters the chamber, compresses and explodes when the spark plug spark. And so we move. That is the admission of an atmospheric car in broad strokes.

Therefore we can gain power by improving that air flow, as the air that enters is cooler because the hot air feels bad to the motors (section of the road, self-ignition, detonation, etc.). All right here?
Ok, then an Ebay man arrives and sells us an air filter , which removes all the huge plastic box as standard, and promises to increase the power of our car by about 20 hp, reasoning that since the filter is less restrictive, more air enters, and over the entire range of revolutions the motor will yield more power and more torque. ERROR.

First error: In a car today, the gasoline-air mixture is not made arbitrarily. The flow meter measures the flow of air entering the intake pipe, and its temperature in many cases. Depending on these parameters, the engine control unit regulates mixing and ignition. But the reading range of these values ​​is very limited in many cases, and the program of the control unit is usually prepared to protect the engine rather than increase the performance. Therefore, the filter will not win just horses until we do not occupy before the flowmeter and electronics. Many euros.

Second error: Air temperature. The famous plastic air cleaner box usually connected to some type of pipe that enters the engine compartment. This pipe brings air from the atmosphere (usually inside a fin, although it can vary and come from the nose) and induces it directly into the filter. If we remove that system to put a conical filter in place, no matter how much we point it toward the mouth of that tube, most of the induced air will be lost through the gap. Then when the intake "sucks" air will do what it finds in the engine vane, and that air is usually tremendously hot from the engine. And this has been proven countless times, so do not ride movies on the head with air direction, or suction, or anything. So if in point 1) we talked about the poor flow gain, we will note that this fresh flow rate is now hot,
Finally, try to ask the manufacturer for a REAL power bank test, gain before and after mounting the filter in the same car ... Never have it, or send you a photoshop with a graph made in laser beam outer space, with two curves we do not know what the fuck they are, and we have to believe that they are two power curves. A joke in bad taste.

If you do the bench test with your car you will be surprised. It is known that the Renault Clio Sport respond fatal to such filters, and that makes them lose power. The Mercedes 190 2.3-16 also suffer from the same effect. The majority of sportsmen who come from a rather decent admission series do not receive these inventions with good results ...

So, are they bad? Let's see, guys are not usually bad. In certain cars such as those we have discussed, they deteriorate slightly. Losses of about 5cv. approximately. But in ordinary cars, the result is more confusing. They seem to run more, but in reality, and with the timer in hand, they only sound more. And is that the sound provided by these filters to atmospheric cars is as sublime (as motorcycle racing distances), you seem to run more, and until you consume more, but the reality is that you go with a tan excitation It's tremendous that you double it ...

They're not going to damage your engine, of course. They will give you a spectacular sound when you accelerate (when you do not accelerate sound like the standard engine), and if you win something, you will win a pair of horses always in high turns. That's fine with me, I carry an HKS filtering my old Colt, and it sounds like hell is going off when I accelerate, but the car just runs some more. As the English say, "if the car sounds good, why do you want to run more?".

But at least, keep this in mind, and do not deceive yourself. The exhaust does not give 40 hp without changing more things from the engine, the air filters do not give 20 hp (a lad with a Mustang once told me that his K & N filter guaranteed 40 hp ...) if we do not change more important things, and most of a car's engine parts come better studied than we think. Ojito to the "engineers" of eBay ...
