An internal combustion engine uses oxygen just as fires require oxygen to keep aflame. There is no internal oxygen tank in a car for this purpose, as that wouldn’t be very efficient. Instead, Kia Optima vehicle manufacturers equip cars with intakes that bring air inside to the Kia Optima engine directly. Kia Optima Air intakes are designed to provide the least inhibited route possible for the air to reach from outside the Kia Optima car all the way to the engine, though stock versions aren’t always the most effective.
For that reason, many car owners turn to aftermarket Kia Optima air intakes to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of their vehicles’ intake capacity. The greater the amount of oxygen supplied to the engine, the more power it can produce. Kia Optima Cold air has more oxygen, for instance, so Kia Optima cold air intakes have become popular Kia Optima intake upgrades. Other upgrade types focus more on greater Kia Optima air intake capacity period, but either way, you’ll end up with a better performing engine using an upgraded Kia Optima air intake system in your car.
I got my Drifter Cobalt kit about 2 weeks ago and I am almost done with the installation (by myself). The front and side fitted alrite w/ some trimming. The rear needed more work but it is expected from a fiberglass kit.

This straight pipe is very nice. I bought 1 myself for me 85 Corolla and it sounds really nice also. I don't use the silencer as much but besides that everythings nice. I'm 15 right now and I'm trying to get somewhere with my 85 Corolla that me dad loaned to me. They straight pipe I bought just killed it. Its really awesome!
Dont know what that last guys complaining about. I pop the hood a lot more often now just to look at it. Looks great, got here fast, and everyone compliments/comments on it. Im very happy. Thank you, Wes!
