i bought a k&n filter and removed the air box thing. what's the difference between that and a cold air intake besides the fact that the cold air intake looks better?

scratch all that, relocate intake to intake side, short s-pipe, straight to cone filter, battery to the trunk. that way all the air coming in isn't "heated up" when it crosses over the radiator, simply to get to the throttle body. plus it decreases the 3 feet of intake pipng to less than a foot. much better throttle response.

nissan dumb design, redesigned.

....20 bucks for the cone, maybe a little custom pipe searching at your local hardware/plumbing stores, and some battery/grounding wires.

also you gotta take your MAF sensor off the stock airbox and attach it to the new setup so you don't get a check engine light.

have fun.

The way I did it on my car was I used a Summit aluminum box and wire kit. I like the box but if I'd do it again I'd buy car audio wire and terminals... Anyway you just drill holes in the trunk to tie it down. Then run atleast a 4 gauge wire off the battery, ground it somewhere in the trunk and run the positive lead up to the engine bay.
