The AIRAID cold air dam provides a steady, free-flowing supply of cooler outside air to the engine.
For the 2010 model year, Cadillac introduced an all-new SRX, considerably smaller than the version it replaced (six inches shorter in wheelbase alone). The new SRX was constructed on a unique platform with ties to Epsilon II, tuned specifically to provide the levels of ride and comfort expected from a Cadillac. The V8 engine was dropped from the new platform, and instead two V6 engines were offered.
The 360-degree conical AIRAID filter features non-woven synthetic filter media that is washable and reusable.
The base engine was GM’s High Feature V6, which features an aluminum engine block and cylinder heads, dual overhead cams with four valves per cylinder, direct fuel Injection, and Variable Valve Timing (VVT). The other engine option was a 2.8-liter version of the same engine, but turbocharged to produce 300 hp. Slow sales killed the 2.8-liter turbo engine just after two models years and was replaced with a 3.6-liter V6 (again, a High Feature engine) with a 308 horsepower rating.
So, if you find yourself with a 3.0-liter Cadillac SRX in your driveway, or you’re scanning online ads looking to buy one, AIRAID can help fill the horsepower gap between the three-point-oh and the more powerful engines. The answer comes in the form of the AIRAID 252-261C cold air dam intake.
The 252-261C AIRAID cold air dam (CAD) is designed utilizing extensive computer modeling to maintain proper mass air flow readings and calibration, as well as giving your engine larger amounts of cooler air with which it can produce more horsepower and torque. The cold air dam panels mount in the stock air box location and install easily with only simple hand tools.
The 360-degree conical AIRAID premium dry air filter features non-woven synthetic filter media and is washable and reusable. Further, the synthetic media is less restrictive than traditional paper elements and assures excellent filtration. To maximize performance, clean your AIRAID filter every 30,000 to 50,000 miles for normal driving, or more often for off-road and heavy dust conditions with the AIRAID premium dry filter cleaning solution, 790-558.
