For the experts...

Is there really a difference? I would like to put an intake on my 97 Sentra GXE GA16DE. I have seen a SRI by Injen, but no CAI's. Am I blind? Do CAI's exsist for the B14 GA16DE? Would one for a SR20DE B14 or a 240/200sx work? Are the throttle bodies and MAF larger in diameter on 2.0's? Are all B14 intakes universal? Any reccomendations?

if my information is inncorrect, please forgive me. I am a Chevy guy at heart.

Spare the "save your money and go SR20" crap. I understand there is no replacement for displacement. I really like the car and am just trying to have some fun on the way to work.

Thanks in advance.

You can use an SR20 intake on a GA16 but it won't gain the same. On the SR20 intakes the MAF to TB pipe is 3 in. with reducer couplers because that's what dynoed well for the SR20. The GA16 intakes use a 2.5 in. pipe from MAF to TB with straight couplers. You can use them back and forth but it won't be optimal flow. The MAFs also have different bolt patterns but pending the adapter you can redrill it easiy.

It will work but it is a 3 in. pipe which is not the ideal for GA16. If you want to copy the Hotshot design do exactly like that picture but with 2.5 in. piping. That will require 3-2.5 in reducer couplers. If you add the MAF to filter extension it is 3 in. on both model intakes. Again, this is following the Hotshot design which was always regarded as the highest gains of any intake. You can run the intake pictured and it will be better than stock. There are quite a few people with the ebay intake that looks like that. And short of finding a used Hotshot I don't think anyone makes a 2.5 in. pipe unless you are into some light fab work using exhaust tubing.
