I just finished a 2 hour install of a Cold Air Intake I bought from Ebay. I know, 2 hours is a long time... but I took my time and enjoyed this install.

Here is the link: 99-04 NISSAN FRONTIER 3.3L V6 AIR INTAKE HEATSHIELD 00:eBay Motors (item 360136433821 end time Aug-01-09 14:02:42 PDT)

I am very impressed with the quality of the system I received. The emailed directions were 10 pages long and included pictures for each step. It described exactly how to remove the old intake system and then step by step for the installation of the new system.

The cone filter is washable, the heat shield fit perfectly and all the necessary hardware was included. Someone put time and effort making this system fit perfectly in our trucks.

I was curious where the temp sensor would go and it plugs into the end of the cone filter. No need to lengthen the lines, it snapped right in.

I installed a Stillen catback exhaust last week and this intake should work well with it.

Next project is a Garmin Nuvi GPS mounted and hardwired to the dash.

I have always said... an intake is a tube with a filter on the end. No more, no less. Looks good. Get an Apexi filter if you want to upgrade.

I agree, I didn't expect to notice much with my Stillen exhaust but it was a definite improvement.

Your right, the new intake adds some more power and the sound is better. Not a big increase, but together with the exhaust I can tell a difference.

It looks like an intake and exhaust are the 2 best things we can cheaply do for our Frontiers performance.
There doesn't seem to be any good performance chips available for our engines.

Nice, $50 is an awesome price for an intake, especially if it's as good as you say and you're happy with it.
Congrats.

This has to be one of the best bang for your buck mods for the 1st gen. I just wish I had seen this before I bought my drop in filter.

I bought this but it did not come with any direction in the box or none were emailed to me.

Call the Ebay seller of the cold air intake: racing_guys at 1-626-435-2981.
I did and they emailed a PDF file with the instructions. I think they do it that way because it's 10 pages long with all the pictures.

They are in California and don't open until 10:00am if I remember correctly.

Good luck.

Decided to go ahead and buy this exact intake. I was impressed by the quality, but mine arrived missing 3 nuts for the heatshield assembly :( I installed it anyway and contacted the seller. It also didn't come with instructions, but I figured it out on my own ;)
