The latest Mitsubishi Lancer combines excellent fuel economy and sporty styling into a fun to drive sedan. The Lancer gets its power from a 2.0 liter engine that can provide an impressive 31 miles per gallon on the highway. Sporty suspension allows this vehicle to hug the road quite nicely when cutting corners. This popular vehicle can benefit from the extra horsepower offered by a cold air intake system but, designing one would not be a walk in the park.

AEM took on the challenge of designing a cold air intake system for the Mitsubishi Lancer to increase performance by reducing restriction and getting to cooler outside air. An estimated gain of 5.3 horsepower @ 6200 RPM was measured using AEM's 21-679DS cold air intake on a 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer 2.0L. This air intake fits many 2008 through 2011 Mitsubishi Lancer models with the 2.0 liter engine. See vehicle details below.

AEM designed the 21-679DS cold air intake to squeeze around the battery to reach cooler air from the driver's side fender and feed it to the engine. John Concialdi, of AEM commented on the development efforts, "The battery placement made the design of this kit difficult and it took a lot of attention to get sufficient clearance." With the battery in the way, a rotomolded plastic tube was designed to clear the space between the battery and the hood. This is a newer feature for AEM designs as aluminum intake tubes have mainly been used for AEM intake systems in the past. A rotomolded plastic tube gives engineers more design options which was needed in the case of the Mitsubishi Lancer.

Concialdi mentioned that, "Many of the newer designs will feature an air box with innovative methods to introduce lower temperatures to the engine." Cooler air temperatures normally allow engines to produce more power. AEM's 21-679DS cold air intake includes a rotomolded upper intake pipe, a lower aluminum intake pipe with a gunmetal gray finish, all of the necessary hardware and detailed installation instructions.

AEM air intakes are application specific and made from high quality materials. AEM provides a limited lifetime warranty on all AEM air intakes. The DryFlow® air filter (21-203DK) included with AEM's 21-679DS cold air intake system, is washable and reusable which means a replacement air filter will never need to be purchased again. AEM Dryflow® air filters are very durable and they do not use oil which saves time servicing the air filter.
