Founded in 1997, AIRAID® advanced the automotive aftermarket industry with the introduction of its AIRAID® Intakes brand of air intake systems. Initially developed for light trucks and sport utility vehicles, the first AIRAID® kits combined an open-element cotton gauze filter with an intake tube to produce an innovative, easy-to-install intake kit which dramatically increased air flow, horsepower and torque while improving overall engine performance. Within five years, explosive sales proved that AIRAID®’s blend of technology and state-of-the-art materials were just what the performance parts market was missing. AIRAID® Premium Filters were introduced in November 2002, securing AIRAID®’s place as a leader in air management for both gasoline and diesel power plants. AIRAID®’s product base now includes a wide variety of AIRAID® Intake Systems, PowerAid® Throttle Body Spacers and OEM replacement filters.
