It's a Cold Air Intake (CAI), basically cold air is less dense than hot air, so the air intake is run somewhere in the hood that would have the coolest air (sometimes you see the filter coming out the front bumper) because the cooler the air the more that can be rammed into the engine...more air = more power...you would gain a small percentage of power....generally somewhere around 5-7hp. Then of course it's all well and good to get air in, but it's more effective when you can throw air out at the same pace, enter headers, exhaust....

Not to be a dork or anything, but cold air is more dense thus having more oxygen, thus better ignition of the fuel, though i agree with the rest. :D

Your both right, Denser air is just that, more air in a smaller area. There is more oxygen, nitrogen, etc. The percentage of oxygen in the mix doesn't change.
