2015 & 2016 Honda Fit 1.5L i-VTEC AEM Short Ram Air Intake System Delivers Performance Boost

AEM short ram intake for 2015 Honda Fit 1.5L

AEM short ram intake, 21-748C, replaces 2015 and 2016 Honda Fit 1.5L i-VTEC factory components with a gray powder coated aluminum air intake tube, AEM Dryflow synthetic air filter, and an application specific air filter heat shield

The third generation 2015 and 2016 Honda Fit made its U.S. debut at the 2014 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) and was released for sale in mid-2014. The chassis is said to have been improved by reducing weight while increasing rigidity. Less weight helps to improve the power to weight ratio. However, more exciting about the third generation 2015 and 2016 Honda Fit is the new 1.5L dual overhead cam (DOHC) i-VTEC engine with Earth Dreams Technology. Through improvements in friction reduction, and implementation of direct injection technology, the Earth Dreams Technology equipped 1.5L engine in the 2015 and 2016 Honda Fit promises a combination of fuel efficiency and high-output.

Similarly an AEM cold air intake system is able to improve an engine’s efficiency by reducing the amount of power being spent on drawing air into the engine. Typically, the factory air intake tubing, stock air filter box, and disposable air filter is a significant point of restriction in modern fuel injected cars. By replacing restrictive factory components with an AEM short ram intake system an engine is able to breathe easier, in turn increasing performance by boosting horsepower and torque which results in better acceleration. For 2015 and 2016 Honda Fit 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC models AEM air intake, number AEM-21-748C, replaces the restrictive factory components with a charcoal gray powder coated mandrel bent aluminum air intake tube coupled to an open element reusable AEM Dryflow synthetic air filter. The AEM Dryflow air filter is protected from engine heat by an application specific air filter heat shield. The result is an estimated 4% increase in horsepower and torque at 5,400 RPM with the installation of AEM short ram intake 21-748C on a 2015 and 2016 Honda Fit 1.5L.

Increasing performance with AEM short ram intake system 21-748C will not put 2015 and 2016 Honda Fit 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC models at risk. AEM air intake systems and AEM Dryflow air filters are designed and tested to provide high-airflow and increased performance without sacrificing filtration efficiency or engine protection. AEM Dryflow air filters are built with a non-woven synthetic air filter media pleated between coated wire mesh. Non-oiled AEM Dryflow air filters are designed for easy cleaning and durable service without the need for air filter oil. AEM Induction Systems stands behind its products with a Lifetime Limited Warranty and the ability to wash and reuse an AEM Dryflow air filter means it will be the last air filter that 2015 and 2016 Honda Fit 1.5L DOHC i-VTEC owners will need to purchase.
