K&N FIPK for 2011

I found a local deal for a slightly used K&N intake. The kit is part # 57-6014. Is there any reason this would not fit a 2011? K&N lists that it is compatible for years 2005-2007. What was changed between those years?

Thanks for any help.

Id say look up the same CAI for your truck and see if the part numbers are the same. Might answer the question.

On K&N's website part # 63-6014 is listed for trucks 2008+, but if you look at the images on the website they look identical. Did Nissan change something with the intake setup from 07 to 08+?

If you'll search the forum and the web for info on CAI's the general consensus is, all they provide is a placebo effect. The only thing they do well is lighten your wallet.

If more air is needed, step on the gas a little more. The amount of air entering the engine is computer controlled (you can't force feed it). Installing a CAI or a "high flow" air filter is not going to change that. Plus over oiling a K&N or other brand can and will do more harm than good. Use an OEM filter or quaility aftermarket (dry) filter.

This. Just look at the pattern of dirt buildup on the factory filter; only gets dirt on part of the filter. If there was a flow restriction, the whole filter would get dirty.

Agreed. I've had friends with K&N's on their different assortments of vehicles and of the 4 of them, 3 said they weren't so impressed after about a year. I have read and heard nothing but good things about Volant. Hope this helps

I bought a used K&N from someone on this board a couple of years ago. One word of caution, ensure the filter element portion has not lost its shape. The one I purchased was not round when I got it. It would never seat on the air tube and kept falling off. I called K&N to purchase a new one and they sent me a new filter free of charge.
