Improve the performance of your pickup with a Silverado cold air intake. A cold air intake is part of your truck's engine that directs fresh air into the cylinders to help your fuel combust, and your engine generate power. With an improved aftermarket intake instead of your stock intake, your truck will take in more air and create more power. This offers a range of benefits to your truck, starting with a more powerful feel and more enjoyable driving characteristics. To learn more about intakes and how to select one, see our Silverado cold air intake system overview. Equip your truck with a better cold air intake, and you'll be ready to drive faster and enjoy the feel of your truck more than ever.

Our Silverado cold air intakes are designed to allow more air to flow into your truck's engine. The intakes have larger openings and allow air to flow through without being restricted as much as the OEM intake. Many intakes come equipped with a filter to clean the air as it comes in and prepare it for your engine. Choose an intake with an easy to maintain filter for the ultimate in convenience for your truck. For even more power gains, you should consider investing in a Silverado supercharger or an enhanced exhaust system. These improvements will add even more power to your pickup.
A top-quality Silverado cold-air intake can enhance your truck in the following ways:
- brings more air into your engine

We have chrome intakes equipped with stylish black filters that can give your truck's engine a more luxurious look. If you're swapping other engine components for chrome accents, you can swap the intake as well to give your truck an even classier looking engine. Our intakes install easily and won't take very long to put on for most owners or mechanics.
