i am looking to buy a weapon-r secret weapon intake for my pathfinder but i have a few questions first.

1-would the air flow sensor go right in between the filter and tube or does it go away all togeather(if i need to get rid of it, would i need to do any extra work on the computer and such)
2-where would you reccommend i mount the ram-air hose






this is what im looking at
Weapon R secret intake system NISSAN 1996-00 PATHFINDER V6 304-118-101 :: Weapon R secret intake System :: AIR INTAKE SYSTEM :: Eracingzone

wow, they claim 3 times more airflow to the engine...:lame:

lets say, 3.3L engine, 6000rpm, 75% efficient...that makes around 261 cfm...

if we multiply this by 3, that makes 783 cfm, the equivalent of a 600 cubic inche engine or enough airflow for 500hp... lol...
the engine WONT suck more air than what it is capable of.
theses air intakes only gives more power when the oem air box is too restrictive., and most of the time there is a reason for that.
-emissions
-fuel economy
you must keep all of theses sensors no matter what.

You will still see some gain in power mostly from the colder temperature of that air if you build a heat shield. I will just tell you what I plan on doing...I am going to purchase the weaponR intake with the ram air hose. I will build a heat shield for the intake from the engine bay. I will then run the hose down the hole from the stock intake until it sits flush with that hole. Then I will cut out the plastic under the turn signals on both sides for symmetry, place a black mesh type screen there and attach the tub behind that screen. The effect will be nothing around town, but on the highway where the 3.3 seriously lacks power it will be forcing a lot of nice cold air up into the intake. I will also find some way to plug that tube from the engine bay side in case I go off roading or am driving through some serious rain...

I added a CAI to my 03 several years ago and it has worked very well. Just remember if you want more air in you need to push more air out. A modified intake works best with a modified exhaust.

I have a 97 pathy, installed a weapon r and it did sound different compared to the stock filter(better); however, dont expect that it would growl as loud as compared to the Honda's that have cold air intake. From the engine you start off with the rubber tube, then you put the metal tubing then another rubber tube. next you put the airflow sensor which connects to an adaptor(the adoptor bottom side will hit a metal framing, just get a dremel tool and grind that side that's hitting that metal frame, like a half moon shape). Connect the last rubber tube to that adaptor w/c will then connects to the air filter. Cut enough coil tube that came with the kit that will connect to the hole where the original filter box was fitted to. Connect another coil tubing from under(you have to remove the factory airbox found behind the front bumper) and lead it out under the area of the left turn signal light(you have to cut out a hole as big as th opening of the coil tube, finally you attach the velocity stack from outside to that tube.

Anyone have any pics of the weapon r installed? I have sent spectre performance pics of engine bay and they are supposed to suggest pieces from their kits to make an intake. I have 99.5 3.3V6 and am assuming eliminating the "S" with a straight pipe on an angle would be an improvement?
