K&N 57 series review: Good intake for the money, decent SOTP incresses. Better trottle responce. Intake fit very well, the instructions were spot on. Putting on the rubber gasket around the sheild takes some time. Total install for me was about 45 mins in my driveway with basic tools. Tools you'll need a 10mm and a 14mm socket a flat head and philips head screw drivers plus some others just cant remember right now. Decent intake just unhappy with the open air box.
Its not the best photo but this is the K&N Installed


Volant review: Took the K&N out and changed to the Volant intake. Finish on the intake was very good. SOTP the intake had a little more power then the K&N and a good ammount over stock along with much better lower end when pulling hills with trailer. The install instructions left a lot be be desired. To install this intake right you need to remove the grill shell. Remove a plastic baffel that forces are into the side of the raditor. Also depending on your model might need to relocate or force move the horn a little. The tube is a little had to get to fit just right on both sides. Total install time is about an hour and a half to install with removing and reinstalling the grill. Tools: you need a 10mm and a 14mm socket a flat head and philips head screw drivers maybe some others too. So far very happy with it.
Installed


Edit: I also have a Magnaflow cat back exhaust system that might give slightly differnt SOTP mesurments than a stock exhaust

i concur with Irongrave's assesment of the 57 series K&N, i also have it, if no price it too low for an intake it's a great choice. i'd rate it an 7 out of 10, mostly because you do gain top end performance but it sacrifices a little on the bottom end (1k-3k rpm) and it can be found for relatively cheap. also there is a slight drone at highway speeds. install was very easy, took only a 30 mins or so

Airaid Quick Fit intake. Works good and nice sound at WOT! I upgraded the filter to an AEM Dry flow filter though so I don't have to mess with oiling the filter. I really like the intake, reuses the lower portion of the stock airbox so you still get the connection to the fender well for drawing colder air, and it's one of the less expensive intakes for the frontier. Noticed an improvement in power from the butt dyno but no actual dyno numbers to show. Overall well woth the money.

I will chime in on this, as I have the same intake, but in a black powder coat.

As for the body lift, you might need to get a little crafty in figuring out a way to mount the rubber bushing. Also, I could maybe foresee the intake tubing sitting more at an angle, due to the lift.

As for response, I sure noticed a difference, or so I think I did. It is also very loud under wide open throttle, but pretty mild under normal driving. If my camera recorded sound, I would try and get a sound clip.

StormNismo, Nice job on the intake info, now a question for all you physics and aerodynamic genuises, What is the difference in HP gain at 5,000 feet with an intake mod vs the difference at sea level? Do you get a bigger difference up high because every bit of air makes a difference, or do you get a bigger difference down low because the overall pressure is higher?
My guess is the up high difference is better because you can only force so much air through the intake and your % gain with mods is higher at higher altitudes where every gram of air makes a difference.

Kris answered your intake question the way I would have.
