Short Ram Intake uninstall. I'm such a tease with this title. I did like the Short Ram Intake, but for this 2004 Nissan Frontier, it really didn't like the first afternoon that got warm! Fuel trims went nuts. They went very rich. The colder it is the more accurate the IAT or intake air temperature as unfortunately, this kit doesn't have a place for the IAT to plug in. Honestly, the wires are so short, they wouldn't reach this intake regardless.

I could prattle on, but I already have a video all about it so check it out here! :)

And below my safety message I explain a from very similar vehicles this video applies to and a few terms used in the video.

Short Ram Intakes and summer haven't worked for me for two of my builds. This 1st Generation Nissan Frontier was no exception. This short ram intake ot SRI doesn't even work in Spring or Fall like weather. 70 degrees F And up and you can't sit in traffic without issue.

Similar vehicles this work would work on are from 1998 to 2004 for the Nissan Frontier and Pathfinder. Looking under a Pathfinder's hood is like a double take for me! LOL. I saw some Xterra's after 2004 which looked the same under the hood too. Just has to have the V6 and it should look and work like this.

The MAF or mass air flow sensor should be accurate on this setup as the MAF comes in it's own tube which is unchanged going from the stock air intake to SRI. A MAF senses how much air is coming in via a hot wire.
