it is a good intake. it does it's job, but it seems like it pulls hot air from the engine when stopped. I might be switching over to a volant in a little bit because of the closed box design.paulhood said:Wondering if anybody has an Airaid intake on their Xterra? If so how loud is it and how is the performance?
A K&N filters about half the dirt a stock filter will, if you want flow and filtration, you go with the new type hi flow nanofiber media such as the Amsoil EaFilter listed for the X here: http://www.amsoil.com/ click on red box application guide work through than and check out the filter. I do have a K&N for sale with about 3K miles on it if you want. When I found out that if I used that filter my Amsoil 25K mile warranty on the oil was void due to the dirt it allows into the oil, I took it out and put the new style in, you can clean it on the trail, and no oil means no fouling the sensors or expensive re-charge kits.XterraVT said:It has a great sound to it but that is about it. Performance = nothing noticeable but I do have to clean the filter more often than the stock filter.
I'm going back to the stock set-up when I get back to my X at the end of the month. I'll toss an a K&N or something like that instead of the paper one.
Spend the money on Sliders, Skids, Tires etc...
