CFM Air Flow

ALL INFORMATION PROVIDED TO BE USED AS REFERENCE ONLY.  THE PARTS USED IN TESTING ARE UNMODIFIED ITEMS UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFIED.  THE DATA HAS BEEN COLLECTED OVER SEVERAL YEARS OF TESTING.  ALL CFM ROUNDED TO THE NEAREST WHOLE NUMBER.

What is CFM? The air flowing through a product is measured in Cubic Feet per Minute, CFM.  It's important to flow test a performance throttle body and find the CFM rating.  A 75mm Brand A throttle body, may not equal the performance of a 75mm Accufab throttle body.

This airflow analysis is important because, basically, an engine is an air pump.  Based on the size of the engine and how fast it will be spinning, it will pump out a certain amount of air. Of course, there are many variables to CFM requirements, such as cylinder head flow capabilities, intake and exhaust manifold flow capabilities, etc... but the basic engine block will pump a certain amount of air over a specified period of time, measured in CFM.  An Accufab throttle body is designed to outflow the stock throttle body, hence, providing more air to the engine for it to utilize accordingly.
