Re: Air intake design


I have to agree the clips are a bit weak and they get worse the more times to take them in and out, mine are only just holding on as well.

The only comment I'll make to you is it might be a good idea to make the bottom washer stainless steel to prevent rust starting if you haven't already done so.

While I had the bonnet up and the engine running for quite a while one time, the two plastic clips that hold the air intake to the top of the radiator support panel fell apart. One vanished for ever and one ended up in the bottom of the air cleaner box in pieces.

I filed out one of the holes to a square shape and fitted a captive nut (speed nut?) from underneath. I have used a flat headed allen bolt and washer to hold the air intake in place.

Even while the plastic clips were gone, the bonnet seemed to hold the air intake in place.

Here's a pick showing the bolt now holding the air intake:

I also had one of these clips come out & I found it in the air filter box when I put the K&N in.
I have found they come loose after a while as I have re-tightened them a couple of times.

Re: Air intake design


Because I took off my front grill more than a couple of times and have actually changed it to a Ti chrome grill, I have replaced these clips with the same design but with a plastic screw ones that has a star head (not sure what they're called) and I have done the same thing on the lower portion of the rear bumper that was playing up and always saw these clips simply fall off and get lost.

Re: Air intake design


Guys,

 Something to consider if you are not into the tracks and more into the bitumen. Depending on which reviews you believe (like most things in motor sport), it can give up to 10% more power and torque.

Re: Air intake design


That is correct Brett, the CAI (Cold Air Intake) WILL give you added power and these reports are true.

I have talked about the CAI and the By-Pass Valve |offset=60]HERE in detail before and now am seriously considering this mod to complete the "power cycle" emoticon but I will have to get the by-pass valve for sure (so I can sleep better). hehehe

P.S. We have also talked about the CAI is the "Performance" thread.

Jalal

 Sorry, looked by couldn't find it. I knew I saw it somewhere.

 Yep, definitely on my 'to do' list, now I have seen that the bypass valve works.

 Any ideas on who does a complete system.

Re: Air intake design


OK Brett, the 3 major brands (well known and been tried by xtrailers with proven results) are:

CAI

Racing CAI This is in Canada

And finally, The "father of power mods" from the US of A emoticon

]HotShot CAI

I believe that both AEM and HotShot offer the by-pass valve (not sure about Cosmo)

Please note that when ordering a CAI you will need to pick one for the Sentra Spec V (QR25DE) as there aren’t any specific CAIs for the exy (apart from the Cosmo one)

Let the CAI mods begin! emoticon

Re: Air intake design


 
 The more I research the CAI, the more I want one. It will compliment the [sign in to see URL]. (Jalal Exhaust Upgrade) like beetroot on a hamburger.

 Obviously the 'trailers' among us will require the bypass valve, but numerous threads detail that the Nismo bypass piece is actually quiet fragile and keeps breaking.

 Additionally, it appears that every part of the states road flood when more that 10mm of rain ralls. I can think of nothing worse than driving through a nice deep puddle [sign in to see URL] + CAI + hydrolock = big $$$.

 Is anybody any closer to actually locating the correct CAI, whether AEM/NISMO/INJEN, that actually fits the x-trail. I have emailed a few companies in US and Canada for information and prices, but no luck.

Re: Air intake design


Brett,

All of the CAI's I have listed above will fit the xtrail and have been fitted to the exy by the guys overseas.

None of them however fitted the by-pass valve and this is what stopping me from getting a CAI in the first place, as I just can't find enough reviews and feedback about it to know for sure that it will protect my exy off-road.

 Regarding this, would the CAI for the exee be the same item as supplied for the QR25DE [sign in to see URL] Sentra Spec-V.
 The front area/void above the wheel (where the current resonator sits) appears deeper on the exee than on the Sentra. Will this cause any problems.
