2010 Acura TSX Cold Air Intake – TSX AEM Cold Air Intake

The 2010 Acura TSX is an impressive entry-level luxury car built with an abundance of standard features. Many Acura TSX owners boast about its quality interior, sporty handling and attractive vehicle design but also mention the lack of power from the 2.4 liter models. All in all, the 2010 Acura TSX, no matter which model you own, is an enjoyable car to drive.

AEM introduced a cold air intake system designed for the 2010 Acura TSX with the 2.4L engine. Specifically designed to boost power and acceleration, the 21-697C uses a mandrel-bent aluminum intake tube engineered to reduce restriction and intake temperature. The intake tube is routed through the fender placing the filter behind the factory fog light on the driver’s side. This allows for an influx of cooler outside air. More than 100 dyno testing runs were made in perfecting this design.

Attached to the custom intake tube is AEM’s oil-free Dryflow air filter designed to produce high air flow with great filtration and performance. This air filter is also washable and reusable.

Dyno-testing on an Acura TSX model with a 2.4L engine demonstrated an increase of 10.2 horsepower at 6600 rpm with the use of AEM’s 21-697C cold air intake. AEM has a link to the dyno test results on the 21-697C air intake product page.

AEM air intake systems are designed, tuned, and dyno-tested to fit specific cars and trucks. Installation of the 21-697C cold air intake system in the 2010 Acura TSX 2.4L could not be easier with AEM’s detailed installation instructions.

AEM’s Acura TSX air intake system, is protected by the AEM Air Intake System Warranty Policy. AEM warrants that its air intake systems and Dryflow™ air filters will last for the life of your vehicle
