AEM Performance Cold Air Intake Systems produce horsepower and torque gains by replacing your vehicle’s restrictive factory air filter and air intake housing. This air intake system was designed, tuned and dyno-tested to fit specific Chevrolet Cruze models. Air enters the system through an oversized AEM Dryflow synthetic washable air filter for outstanding air flow, filtration and performance. The air filter is located in the original air box space and is protected by a heat shield which is designed to reduce intake air temperature and increase horsepower. The air intake tubing is constructed from mandrel-bent aluminum featuring a durable gunmetal gray powder coated finish. This air intake system was developed to accommodate the engine’s factory emissions control devices including the mass air sensor. The tapered cylinder shaped AEM Dryflow air filter is made from an oil-free, synthetic filter media that can be used for up to 100,000 miles before cleaning is needed (depending on driving conditions). This air intake system is easy to install with commonly available tools. Some AEM air intakes are not legal for sale or use in California and other states adopting California emission standards, while others are 50 state legal. View the vehicle applications to determine the legal status for each vehicle.

Anyone with the 1.4l turbo Cruze, this is a must for the price, sound, and a little bit of performance curve. Definitely changes the sound of the car. The turbo is very noticeable now where as before you could barely hear it.

The unit was easy to install and only took about 30 minutes. The intake looks and sounds great. Notice an increase in power right away. Now you need to make a matching cat back exhaust.

Great product! Easy install. Had a small snafu on the install as my car had a drain tube that the CA emissions cars did not. Easy 2 minute fix. Quick call to the fitment team and a little research problem solved. Great customer service, I would reccomend this product to anybody.

This intake is very easy to install on my 2013 Chevy Cruze Lt 1.4L turbo. I had no issues with the install and the outcome is amazing. You can definitely feel and hear the difference compared to the stock intake. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Great product

Great product, sounds like an import now. I cancelled my order from Carid after it was backordered even though they said it was in stock and went with AEM instead. Make sure to call in to confirm product availability, their customer service was very helpful.

Great easy to install, the swooshing sound the turbo makes with this intake is very appealing. Good power gain to boost.
