42 Draft Designs has long avoided the crowded air intake marketplace. In order for an intake project to captivate our attention, the goal must be difficult to achieve. They set out to create a high quality intake with a clean look that truly delivers. Although the process was far from simple, the finished product exceeds our expectations with ease.
This High-Flow Intake System combines an oversized air filter with an engineered velocity stack in an accurately shaped heatshield. Precision machining, fabrication, and finishing methods are used throughout. The result is an air intake system that delivers serious gains and looks the part.
The entire system assembles and installs with perfection thanks to the extensive craftsmanship used to create each component. The velocity stack is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum. The heatshield is constructed from waterjet cut 304 stainless steel. Each piece is fitted and TIG welded on precision tooling to assure accurate fitment. The heatshield is finished with a satin black powdercoat and stainless steel hardware is used to assemble the components.
Installed in the engine bay, this intake appears oversized and robust. On the road, this intake unleashes power and sound. The diverter valve is audible and the sound created by the velocity stack can only be described as vicious. Substantial power gains can be felt throughout the power band with no loss of low-end torque.
They set out to create a serious air intake system and we're confident that we've succeeded.
