Ok guys, I don't know jack shit about cars and last time I came here you helped me a lot, so I'm hoping you can help me out with this one as well.

Ok so I have a Sentra SE-R '04 auto and I've been wanting to put in a cool air intake for a long time. I've been looking around e bay recently and spoted one that kinda intrested me...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7945123591&category=38634

It says that it's a Nismo and for that price it looks pretty cheep...anyways, what do you guys think, should I go for it, or is it to much of a risk? Is it any good at all by the way? How much of a hp advantage will I get with this?

Please provide as much info as possible since I really don't know much about this stuff, any little advice will help.

:thumbdwn: it is not a NISMO...they are stealing the NISMO trademark. that setup could easily blow your MAF and they are poorly made. stick hotshot, aem or nismo.

Thanks. Does Nismo have different setups, if so which is considered best?
NISMO has the gen1 and gen2...they are only according to the year. the gen1 is for 02-03 and gen2 is 04+...I am pretty sure about this but not definate. i may have them bass ackwards.

I bought my HotShot because AEM had some earlier mounting problems and guys were using twist ties to hold them on. AEM, HotShot and NISMO are all good. NISMO is a little more expensive but since it is a direct Nissan part, this is expectable. I reccomend HotShot but any of those companies are good. A good CAI costs money...a cheap ebay one usually has a crappy filter, is poorly constructed and can vibrate so much that it can damage your MAF. A new MAF is costly so going with a good name intake is definately a good way to go. Nissan Performance Mag used the AEM on their Spec and they have dyno sheets which show rather good gains.

i dont know about the quality of that particular intake or if its good or not. but i can say ive bought an maf adapter plate and cone filter from that company/store. it came as promised packed nicely along with the metal fasteners and rubber piece. came as promised and when promised. thats the only advice i can give you regarding your question. i did try to find the posative feed back i left them but im not gonna search all night to find it lol. but if you wanna see what i left you can search my ebay name is honor1874byk and i think i left the message any where bewteen 15-20. good luck.

thanks...and oh yea..i also think the gen 2 is designed where your maf fits right in and you dont need the plastic piece.
