    New Injen intake?

    Seems like a cheaper alternative to the Dinan enclosed airbox. I don't remember ever seeing this product...I gotta say, i don't hate it....and looks more OEM-ish over the AFE one i currently have.

      Makes me think of my Sentra ser days in early 2000’s. Only intake worth upgrading to are the CSL ones. But that’s just me. Im all for companies making new products for our cars in 2020

        Injen does remind me of the late 90s-early 2000s when i had an Infiniti G20 (same motor as the SE-R).

        CSL intake of course is the ultimate upgrade.....but for a sub-$300 air induction system, i think they priced this well given what looks like a pretty well built non-OEM alternative.

          Looks nice. But will there be hp increase or just noise?

            Neither

            Stock, used eventuri (for noise), or full CSL style imo.

                This looks like something from the local autoparts store lol. Other than CSL, it is hard to beat the design of the stock airbox (plus it comes free with the car).

                  Probably neither, looks sealed up just like OEM from those pics.

                      Why? Why was this developed, designed, and produced? It looks terrible, and probably doesn't do anything better than stock airbox. WHY?

                        Because of the 14hp you get after installing this...

                          damn i must have some bad eyes lol. i honestly think it looks a lot better than the exposed cone filters that K&N, AFE, and other manufacturers have designed over the years that all suck in hot air. I think Eventuri is basically a similar design as well, just dressed up in nice carbon.

                          Not comparing this to CSL airbox by any means. Different league, we all know this.

                            Yep I'm with u.

                            ​​​looks better than most of the intakes on the market for the car.

                            You just have to remove the "sticker" if it bother some people.

                              I can write whatever I want on my own for sale ad. I seriously doubt there are any gains - "up to" 14hp means there could be 1-2 hp.
                              And even if it does what they claim - I'd rather have stock box than this under the hood of my car Its just unsightly.
