Re: APEXi Intake Exy


This type of set-up is missing the filter enclosure to make it road legal.

Re: APEXi Intake Exy


Hi guys,

 Sorry to hijack this thread, but I have tried the SRI and had mixed results. After much research on the other qr25de related threads, I pretty much got the same results as the others. I also learnt that the open end pod filter was the preffered one and those who used the standard air intake to get additional fresh air onto the pod, has less heat soak issues.

 In winter and cool weather, at speeds over 80kph, it is great. Acceleration increased, sounded great and I believe fuel economy also improved. When it was snowing (which it did a lot this year), the can ran like a weapon and the acceleration was unreal.

 HOWEVER, during hotter periods, whilst driving under 60kph and whilst stopped at lights for lenghty periods, the heat soak was not good and the car felt more sluggish. That is until fresh air was forced into the engine bay, by travelling between 60 and 80kph.

 I even experimented with a heat shield and it did drop the temps around the pod, but the heat soak was the real killer. On the open freeway, I strongly recommend such a cheap system, but not for around town and DEFINITELY on the dirt.

 On a side note, I am looking at selling my pod as I have no need for it anymore, but more on that later...

IMHO, if I was a ricer who loved tearing up the bitumen, I would definitely go for the air intake system like Jalal and Noel have fitted. Especially with the bypass for those deep puddles.

Good luck with it...

Re:


I have a question relating to aftermarket air intakes, i see through this forum that we share the QR25 engine with the Sentra? Am i correct in thinking that this part here i have found on ebay will fit a T30 with a QR25 engine?

Admin Edit: eBay link removed as per forum rules!

Re:


Sorry mate, but which part of "No eBay links to be posted on the forum" you didn't understand?

Ask the question without plastering the forum with those eBay links!

We will know what you're talking about without seeing them on eBay.

Sentra Spec-V 2.5L QR25DE CAI parts will fit your T30.
