“We are incredibly honored to be chosen for another Motor Top 20 Tools Award and appreciate the recognition of our constant drive to create new technologies that are essential for technicians repairing today’s technologically advanced vehicles,” said Alex Parker, Executive Vice President of Redline Detection.

Technicians in 112 countries around the world are using this OEM-mandated tool to quickly find leaks in turbo/boost systems, charge air coolers, exhaust systems, dangerous exhaust cab leaks, cooling system leaks, and more. “But the greatest value of this award-winning equipment is that it saves valuable technician time, eliminates comebacks, and improves the customer experience throughout the life of the vehicle,” said Ms. Parker.

The award-winning Power Intake™ is a pair of inflatable block off bladders with a pressurized vapor pass-through that allows technicians to test an entire boosted intake and exhaust system, end to end, quickly and easily, with the engine safely off. Power Intake™ can be used with any brand of smoke machine or diagnostic leak detector to find boost leaks in today’s turbo, diesel, supercharged, and high performance engines. The professional grade adaptor is inflated with compressed air to conform to any size intake or exhaust. Power Intake™ is the only OEM globally mandated/essential block-off tool available on the market today.
