    It's the same logic behind a supercharger; sorta! Maybe more like the K&N cold-air pak. The colder the air, the denser it is and therefore, the more air that gets drawn in the engine in a charge. More air gets more fuel, and thus more power. I can really notice it on a cold winter morning. The Blazer goes from good to snappy at a touch of the gas peddle! [​IMG][​IMG]

    Hope this helps
