Re: Air intake design & modifications

I have ordered a K&N pod filter with an open base and I am hopeful that it will help me further and will indeed increase air-flow.



This is what I have fitted - K&N RX4960.
I have not noticed any anomalies in performance so far that would indicate any restrictive airflow. The system literally roars! Earlier I said that didn't notice that much of a difference in sound, but I take that back. It is loud. emoticon

The difference in performance, stepping from stock-standard with crappy paper airfilter to CAI with K&N has been massive!

Good stuff Andrew, I have the same filter on order.

Please keep an eye on your fuel economy and performance during the warmer days and let me know if you notice any difference in performance between (for example a morning run and an afternoon run when it is warmer)

What was the brand of the CAI you picked-up and did it include the bypass valve? I don't remember you mentioning these details.

 K&N Typhoon setup.

I'm still on my first tank, so have no fuel results yet. I'll also reset the ECU after my first refill.

Honestly, I don't think I'll see any improvement initially because I'm enjoying the responsive power too much.

At this stage I have no bypass valve fitted. Everyone I have spoken to (mechanics, specialist auto shops, car enthusiast) just stare blankly into the sky when I mention it.. Most have never heard of anything like it, and no-one stocks them or have had them fitted.

I'm still trying to source one for myself at the moment. Ebay seems to be the only option.

Yeah mate, you won't be able to monitor fuel consumption until after 2 full tanks at least emoticon The power increase and the fun associated with that is too hard to resist LOL

Post some pics up of your set-up and let us have a look at the new look of your engine bay. Take a photo of the K&N filter if you can too.

P.S. I actually ordered the RX-4990 (just checked my order)

K&N Typhoon 1

K&N Typhoon 2

and the only shot I could get of the filter, taken from under front of car between bumper and splash gaurd. The blue covering is a water-resistant 'drycharger' thing that was included in the setup.

Andrew:

Would like to know which vehicle spec you used when ordering this system ? Was it designed for the Spec-V / SER ?

Reason for asking - don't think K&N has a listing for the X-T....and your's does seem to fit very nicely.

TIA.

It was the kit built for the Nissan Sentra.
Fits perfectly, and even the instructions were accurate.

Thought so - thanks for the info.

I had one like Jalal's on my last X-T and planned on putting it on the current one.

But I must admit, it does not seem to fit as well as the K & N - and I like the "expansion" silicone sleeve that came with yours...

Perfect set-up Andrew and I have ordered the dry charger as well with my K&N filter (a red one) emoticon

Do you mind sharing the total cost of your CAI (incl shipping from the US) so we can compare for the benefit of other members?

Total cost, inc postage - $166.

eBay can sometimes be a very a special place.

The actual cost of postage, which the seller graciously paid for (US airmail, with insurance) was US$51.
