Reinstalling the Nissan Frontier's Fake Cold Air Intake Part 2
Truly, fake, stock, cold air intakes is a very common problem for making power. It's not just Nissan, I notice manufacturers do it all the time. In this video, I show serious issues with my inexpensive eBay Short Ram as I discover through installation issues which were present also on the stock air box without realizing it! Understand, that while this particular example is on a Nissan Frontier, Pathfinders and 2002-2004 Nissan Xterra's should have identical engine pays if it has the V6. Know that if you have the supercharger, it doesn't effect the kit you need to run the short ram intake, which I'm talking about, but I do recommend upgrading one of the air filter components from the inexpensive eBay kit.
Again, more specifically, this is how to successfully install a stock air intake on the following vehicles:
1999-2004 Nissan Frontier
2002-2004 Nissan Xterra
1996-2000 Nissan Pathfinder
Also, it should work for these Nissan products to an extent, which I'm less familiar with as they are either not in the U.S.A. or I just haven't gotten my hands on them, but the have the same Nissan VG33E engine as my truck:
* 1996–2004 Nissan Pathfinder In Australian Models
1997–2000 Infiniti QX4
1997–2002 Nissan Elgrand
1999–2002 Nissan Quest/Mercury Villager
1999–2004 Nissan Paladin
(the previous years are according to wikipedia)
Don't want a fake cold air intake? After you've read and watched this series, you should be better equipped to see if their are issues with your stock intake on a variety of vehicles, which may be robbing you from pressure cold air, which increases fuel consumption for sure, but hopefully raise the almighty wHP as well! :)
