The 2011-2013 Ford Fiesta 1.6L can achieve an impressive 40 miles per gallon but the lack of torque and consequently, horsepower is why AEM designed a cold air induction system for this specific vehicle. AEM decided to make an intake system with an emphasis on generating more torque in the lower region of the power band where most driving occurs.

Power testing on AEM's air intake design, parts 21-703C and 21-703P, resulted in an estimated gain of of 14 lbs./ft. torque and almost 11 horsepower at 4100 rpm.  That's significant add-on power from simply removing the restrictive factory intake assembly and replacing it with one of these AEM cold air intakes. The intake's AEM Dryflow® air filter is located down inside the fender well. This location supplies the engine with cooler air which contributes to the increase in engine performance.

These AEM cold air intake systems can be installed with simple hand tools in about 90 minutes. A step by step installation sheet for easy installation is included.

AEM's high quality intake systems are backed by a lifetime limited warranty. Parts 21-703C and 21-703P have 3/16" thick aluminum mounting brackets that provide extra strength. These air intakes are identical except for the tube finish.  The 21-703C is designed with a gunmetal gray powder coating and 21-703P has a polished chrome-like finish.

AEM has partnered with K&N to develop a filter cleaner for AEM synthetic air filters that loosens dirt and grime so it is easily washed away, ensuring your AEM Dryflow filter element lasts for the life of your vehicle.
