Nismo CAI

Hey People. I have been looking for a bit now for a Nismo Pre filter for my cold air intake. I can find one for EVERY other intake but the Nismo one. Is this the only company that doesn't make them?! Thanks.

Get the specs of your filter and call AEM and I am sure they will have one that will fit.

I'm with Dawg, K&N makes many different sizes of the pre-filter. AEM's selection is a little lacking, compared to K&N.

The NISMO is a 3" tube so if you want a NISMO one the part#16576-RNSP2 will work.

Thanks a lot. Picked up AEM one today. PS your avatar pic is hilarious.
I have another question though. The plastic intake piping that comes stock. Isn/t that more efficient than the aluminum piping that comes with the Nismo intake? It would be a better insulator for colder air no? Which brings me to my next point. Is colder air more important or "more" airflow more important for power gains? The Nismo intake has a lot of gaps for a ton of hot engine air to sneak through. (Where the pipe penetrates air box)

According to the intake temperature reading I can see that at idle the temperature rises however while moving the intake works very well. Pulling the air out of the wheel the temperature will fall to about 5* above ambient as I drive.
