The variable intake duct (VAD) can be considered a second intake duct, prior to the air filter, that opens at higher RPMs. An otherwise restrictive, damped, and quiet intake is employed in the Mazda6 airbox. Beyond 4500rpm, the second air duct opens on the side of the airbox, allowing a shorter, louder, and larger path of air into the engine. With the VAD, the intake of the Mazda6 is never starved for an air source, yet it can stay quiet at lower RPMs. On the Mazda6, the air from the 2nd air duct is also a cooler air source- all the way to the driver's side of the engine bay.[/b]
