When looking for easy ways to improve your ride without breaking the bank, bolt-on performance parts and interior modifications are a great place to start. Easy installation and immediately noticeable results make these parts some of the best things you can do to any ride, whether it’s a daily driver or on the way to becoming a track star.

CR-Z cold-air intake
Specifically designed to boost power and acceleration, this new cold-air system uses a mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube engineered to reduce restriction and intake temperature. The intake tube is routed to the outside of the engine bay to deliver air with lower temperatures to the air inlet, which helps achieve increased horsepower because of the cooler outside air.

AMS Performance
R35 GT-R alpha induction kit
AMS has eliminated driveability issues often seen when running high horsepower on the R35 Nissan GT-R by converting the stock induction system to a blow-through MAF system. This conversion provides improved measurement of airflow entering the engine and allows you to run an atmospheric vent blow-off valve without the throttle issues that commonly arise on the standard draw-through MAF system. This system has been proven effective up to 1,400 hp.
