1996-2000 GMC and Chevy Trucks, SUVs with AIRAID Cold Air Dam Intake Get More Power

Chevy truck with first generation Vortec engine

A proven performer, these CAD systems for 1996-2000 Chevy trucks have been helping first-generation Vortecs breathe easier and make more power for nearly 20 years.

The Vortec truck engines used in late 1990 Chevys and GMCs were the best and last examples of the original first-generation small-block Chevy engine. Sometimes referred to as L31, these engines used the same basic architecture as small-blocks dating back to 1955 but benefitted from modern engineering advancements to produce excellent power with the same legendary reliability that have made GM small-blocks the performance engine of choice for decades. Add the AIRAID 202-207 Cold Air Dam (CAD) to the mix and you have a winning combination for more power.

AIRAID 202-207 Cold Air Intake System for 1996-2000 GM Trucks

Weatherstripping positioned along the top of the Cold Air Dam panels seals against the underside of the hood when closed to keep the filter isolated from hot engine compartment air. The AIRAID system also looks clean and professional once installation is complete.

First released in 1996, the Vortec heads used on these engines outperformed most previous aftermarket performance heads right out of the box, and coupled with an all-new fuel injection system, these engines produced excellent power and torque that helped Chevy trucks maintain their dominance in the world of heavy hauling. Chevrolet may have spent a lot of time developing the engine itself, but somehow they coupled it to a dated intake system that kept the engines from reaching their fullest potential. AIRAID picked up where the factory left off and developed popular Cold Air Dam Intake Systems for 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, and 2000 Chevy trucks and SUVs that unlock additional power in first-generation Vortec engines while also improving their efficiency.

The 202-207 AIRAID Cold Air Dam system for 1996-2000 GM trucks and SUVs targets the most restrictive portions of the factory intake design: the stock airbox and the paper air filter element. As the name implies, the AIRAID intake kit includes Cold Air Dam panels, which are assembled with the supplied hardware and placed in the same location as the factory airbox. The CAD panels re-use factory mounting locations for easy installation, and there is no drilling or trimming required. The location enables the intake to re-use the factory cold air inlet duct in the fender but also provides additional forward-facing area for cool outside air to reach the filter. Blade-style weather-stripping positioned along the top of the panels seals against the hood to keep the filter isolated from hot engine compartment air, so the AIRAID design essentially uses the hood as a lid for the new air box. A relatively short powder coated aluminum tube connects the air box to the mass airflow sensor (MAF) and also includes provisions for mounting the intake air temperature (IAT) sensor. This ensures that both sensors receive proper air signals to work properly with the factory tuning because like most other AIRAID intakes, this system does not require any aftermarket tuning. The new air tube connects to the MAF sensor with a special stainless steel coupler that is also supplied with the kit.

Inside the CAD panels, the new intake tube is secured to the fenderwell with a supplied bracket and hardware. The tube is capped with a premium AIRAID filter that has much more surface area for filter media compared to the factory paper flat panel filter. More filter surface area means the filter is capable of flowing additional air to the engine without sacrificing any filtration. This airflow increase, combined with being able to draw in more cool outside air, is how the AIRAID system is able to improve power and efficiency with a simple bolt-on installation.

filter wrap for AIRAID 202-207 Cold Air Intake System for 1996-2000 GM Trucks

The CAD system is available with a traditional oiled filter in red, or with a SynthaMax dry filter in red, blue, or black. Along with these filters, AIRAID offers the 799-420 filter wrap for extra protection when needed.

The AIRAID Cold Air Intake for 1996-2000 GM trucks and SUVs is available with a variety of filter choices. The 200-207 system includes a traditional SynthaFlow red, oiled filter that features four layers of cotton gauze plus an additional synthetic layer that improves filtration and helps keep the oil suspended in the filter media. The 201-207 system includes a SynthaMax dry filter in red that has multiple layers of a synthetic filter material and does not need to be oiled. The 202-207 system includes a SynthaMax dry filter in black, while the 203-207 system includes a dry filter in blue. All three SythaMax dry filters use the same filter media and offer the same performance benefits, so only the filter color is different to suit individual preferences.

Though these air intake systems were designed and released when these trucks were new, the design has withstood the test of time and remains a popular seller, and these cold air intake systems have received great reviews over the years. Best of all, like the rest of AIRAID’s intake products and cold air intake systems, these intakes are made in the USA and backed with a Limited Lifetime Warranty.
