The Cougar is a reliable, safe and comfortable car which is very conveniently affordable. You can increase the efficiency of your car by installing a Cougar air intake. An air intake is a device used to bring air into the car’s internal combustion engine to increase its efficiency and performance. The advantages of this are numerous. It functions by transferring the fresh air through a path which does not directly pass the main engine chamber which is hot. This cuts the chances of the air getting heated up. This relatively cold air is desired as it is dense and therefore has a higher percent of oxygen. This is very beneficial as a higher percent of oxygen means that the combustion of the fuel is more efficient. This saves precious fuel and leaves behind smaller amounts of residue. All this is very good for the healthy functioning of your engine. You also end up spending less on the maintenance of your car.
