Re:


I also install AEM Bypass Valve, but I don't wish it perform its duty, just for peace of mind in case of flood. emoticon

Jalal, do you ever to see the Bypass Valve demo? Is it really functional when it's needed?

I think K&N Wrap RX-4990DR is more usefull, where it almost rain heavily everyday here. Tried to order the wrap at K&N Indonesian dealers, but none has it. So I ended up ordering from ebay, but wow...... the shipping costs is more than twice the price itself (shipping $50, and the wrap $20)!!

Re:


Believe me mate, the AEM bypass valve performs exactly as advertised and I have already tested it when I have done mud and creak crossings with the CAI attached emoticon

I have the K&N filter wrap as well and it is the best investment you can have to keep the filter cleaner for longer. I ended-up getting my wrap from K&N US for free because the local Australian K&N distributor stuffed-up my order and I was waiting for my filter and the wrap for 2 months.

Re:


Just finished it up CAI Installation few weeks ago..., I want to share the joy with all members here.

To install the AEM Bypass Valve properly, I had to cut the MAF Adapter about 1 inch. That's still very very tight tough.

Yesterday I read the AEM CAI Installation Instructions, felt a little surprise! There is a note: "The AEM bypass valve (sold separately) CANNOT be used with this intake system, due to space restriction and the MAF sensor location. The use of an AEM bypass valve could have adverse effects on the performance of the System." What's your opinion about that guys?

Re:


Well, I guess if there were any "adverse" affects on the performance of the CAI, I certainly have't come across them and I've been using this the Cosmo CAI and exact bypass valve from day 1.

The fact is more important than the theory. emoticon

Re: Air intake design & modifications


Great looking engine bay mate emoticon

Only possible adverse effect that may occur is if the rubber flaps in the Bypass are held open by dirt etc, and hotter air flows passed the MAF via the engine bay. Its possible but unlikely...whty dont you email AEM and ask what the drama is?

Curious myself now.

Re:


Got the reply from AEM, but it did not explain anything usefull, other than saying this ByPass Valve couldn't be installed on X-Trail due to space restriction. That's the only point I got. Here what AEM said:

"The By Pass Valve was not designed to be used on this application due to space restriction, there will be no correct way to safely install it.

Some things to consider when using the BPV on other application:

The valve should be installed before any sensors like MAF or AIT and after the filter.
There should be two cuts on the pipe to keep the intake dimension for proper fitment.
The intake pipes ( before and after the BPV)should be supported by brackets to eliminate stress on the valve
Make sure that when the engine moves , the valve would move with the intake and not against it or it will put load and break itself."
