TweekersAltima went from CAI to WAI just to see the difference, on the Injen intake you can do this by removing one of the pipes.iceman55508 said:I forgot which member here at altimas.net has a INJEN CAI and converted it to a WAI. But the odd thing was the pipe after the MAF was short, like he cut the pipe. But I could be wrong. I wonder where he got the extra pipe? I hope He/She is reading this and post's up what he did.
Don't become the laughing stock of Altimas.net like member OTBSharkDogZ said:Has anyone ever tried running a cold Air an a warm air intake into the same single pipe? Would runnin the 2 types of air effect the engine in anyway? Just curious about it.
I agree. The engine can only breath so much air given it's throttle body size, intake runners, etc. Freeing up the air intake with an aftermarket unit certainly helps, but only to an extent. Once the air filter and intake tubing can move more air than the car is capable of taking in (without FI), it's useless to keep going. Other things then need to be changed to keep up. Kinda like the 5" ricer "coffee can" exhaust. They're not moving any more air.BrandonS said:The way I figure it I don't think that there would be any benefit. A k&N filter can pass about 441 Cu/feet of air per minute according to the web site. I tried but could not find flow rates for other filters. I calculate that the V6 can move a max of 251 Cu/feet or air per minute. The extra surface would not really be that much of a factor, because one filter would flow more then enough air to keep the engine happy. The only catch might be that the actual intake pipe may cut down on the air entering the manifold.
