Stock intercooler models are often times too small to be efficient while other aftermarket models are too big and poorly designed.  The Banks Power Techni-Cooler Intercooler System has a streamlined design that was made to capture the critical airflow.  Designed using Computational Fluid Dynamics this intercooler’s rugged cast aluminum end tanks ensure an improved durability and a slicker airflow, when compared to stock or competing aftermarket models.  The round, curving angles of the Techni-Cooler system are better than stock’s square corner design in receiving the most airflow.  Another boost the Techni-Cooler system receives is its streamlined cores unlike the other bar-and-plate cores which hamper airflow.

Air Filters for Cars

Do you often find yourself worrying about the quality of air reaching your vehicle’s engine?  Looking online can provide varying statistics and opinions about what’s safe to do and not to do with your car.  Even with air filters, many people have different methods when it come to cleaning and replacing them.  Some say to check your air filter every 60,000 miles while some will tell you to every 2,000.  The biggest factor to take into consideration when it comes to air filter health is the quality of life it receives.  Or more accurately, the type of air it cycles through most often.  If you drive your vehicle through smog infested cities backed up with endless traffic everyday then chances are you’ll want to clean and replace your air filter more often than someone who only drives a couple of days a week and for not that long. You essentially get what you give with your air filter’s lifestyle.

A smart trick to use when cleaning your vehicle’s air filter is to simply buy another one.  You might say, “Isn’t that a waste of money when you could just clean it?”  You would be right if I was suggesting you should simply throw away the dirty air filter.  But instead you should install the clean one and start cleaning the dirty one because it can take all day to fully cleanse it of impurities, leaving you stranded with no transportation unless you happened to have a spare air filter somewhere.

So your air filter is filthy and not operating at full capacity, now you want to try out this technique and are looking for a new and reliable air filter to purchase.  Well the best place to do so would be at Banks Power Products online, where you can find products such as the Banks Power Air Filter Element for the 2007-2011 3.8L Jeep Wrangler (Gas) 2 Door or 4 Door or the Banks Power Ram-Air Filter Element for the 1988-1998 7.5L Ford 460 Truck/Motorhome Electronic Fuel Injected (Gas) , and much more!  All of the air filters available from Banks Power are more than reliable and very graciously priced to give you the most value for your buck.  So go on ahead and order one online at Banks Power Products using the search located at the left-hand side of the screen to find the right air filter for you or call the number 714-848-2170.
