In the design of the 21-8029C air intake system, AEM needed to work within the confines of the Camaro's engine compartment. To do so, AEM engineers designed an inlet tube that would give a large volume of airflow with little added restriction. The end result would be a massive three-inch mandrel-bent inlet tube constructed from high-grade aluminum. The design calls for the inlet tube to route from the V8's frontward-facing throttle body into the driver's side wheel well. In addition to the mandrel-bent aluminum tube, AEM utilized the optimal location for a cool air source. In order for the DryFlow performance air filter to occupy this location, the Camaro's windshield washer fluid reservoir had to replaced with a sleeker piece. To this end, AEM designed a washer fluid reservoir that would better accommodate the location. Each AEM 21-8029C air intake system comes complete with a new washer fluid reservoir and mounting bracket.
On the dyno, the AEM 21-8029C Cold Air Intake System yielded impressive results. In factory form, the test vehicle generated a peak of 318.67 horsepower at the wheels. With the AEM 21-8029C cold air intake system in place, the Camaro's peak power output jumped up to 325.98 horsepower at the wheels. A maximum gain of 16.53 horsepower at 4,200 RPM was also recorded with the AEM intake installed.
The 21-8029C Cold Air Intake System for the Camaro uses a DryFlow Performance air filter. The DryFlow air filter has a three-inch inlet diameter that outflows the V8 engine's requirements. The oil-free DryFlow technology is extremely durable and easy to clean. To further augment the filtration properties of the DryFlow performance filter, AEM also offers DryFlow Pre- Filters. Designed to prevent splashes of water and/or mud from saturating the DryFlow air filter, AEM's.
