Re: Air intake design


Yep, plenty of cold air to intake there. Its 30 degrees C in here at the moment - 33.3 outside in the shade. I think I'll just look at your pictures a bit longer to cool me down.

Re: Air intake design


Vik,

The guys in Canada have the VDC Traction Control on some model xtrails. Roger doesn't have that on his I think. It is the best you can have in snow conditions like these.

Back on the subject of the CAI emoticon

Roger, how come Cosmo didn't include any fitting instructions with it? I'd be ringing the distributor about them.

Re: Air intake design


Brett72: Before you commit to the American Nismo item, I may have a cheaper Nismo alternative from Japan. Remember, that Sentra Nismo part is being freighted TWICE across the Pacific ocean.

There is a part number listed in Japan for the X-Trail and is also used on the Nismo S Tune X-Trail(I posted a pic of orange S-Tune X-Trail previously)

Give me a few hours and I will have an answer on pricing and contact details.

Japan Nismo X-Trail Link

AU$100 = JY8,700(approx)

Item 9 ~ AU$200 for 4 Litres of Nismo Synthetic 15w-50 Engine Oil

Re: Air intake design


Matt,

So what was the price of the Japan Nismo CAI again?

$100AU??

For those of you trying to understand what that Japanese website is saying use THIS web translation tool emoticon

Just copy the URL of the NISMO website and select the translation langauge you're after.

Re: Air intake design


I already sent Brett72 a PM about pricing.

Full NISMO S-Tune Cold Air Intake kit from Japan including freight, bypass valve and filter cleaning/recharge kit will be about $250(dependant on exchange rates@time of sale)

Obviously bulk orders would drop the price. Made from heat resistant plastic(no point warming up the incoming air with metal pipe) and the kit consists of 2 pipes, silicon hoses and T bolt clamps(not screw clamps). One pipe connects the Throttle Body to the AFM and relocates the AFM, the other pipe locates the airfilter behind/below the headlight in the inner guard.

I am using the factory airbox on my setup with mandrel bent steel piping being used for a cold air feed so I am also looking at upgrading to this setup in the immediate future. $250 is not exactly cheap but I spent nearly that price on mandrel bent pipes making my current CAI.

If there is any interest let me know.

Matt,

Do you have photos of this set-up I can look at?

I prefer steel pipes though.

Don't really know - guess they think we X-T guys are bright enough to figure it out for ourselves - which, of course, WE ARE - it's not rocket science.

States right on their ebay listing (see your post of 02 March with link) that there are no fitting instructions provided and, for that reason, they recommend "professional installation" - guess I'll have to get my Union papers emoticon

Cheers

Yep Roger, saw their eBay advert and it states that clearly there. Not to worry though, as there are many DIY guides about this on the net already and no matter what brand CAI we buy, the DIY guide is still applicable to all.
