Nice pics.

FYI: those aren't your high beams; they are simply accent lights. The HIDS are Bi-Xenon, both high and low beam.

Is it just me or does the Stillen filter element not look like it's properly seated on the venturi? May just be the pic angle, but the way the filter looks to be angled, it doesn't look like it lines up properly with where the venturi ring would be. Looking at mine like that, I can see the top edge of the front silver cap.

I'd deffinitely have that checked out ASAP. From the angle the filter looks like it's sitting in there, something is deffinitely wrong. It doesn't even look like it coule be hooked up to the venturi and be angled like that, meaning the filter is just sitting in there loose and you're sucking unfiltered air into your engine.

Again, I COULD be seeing it wrong, but that's sure what it looks like to me, so it'd definitely be worth checking out ASAP just in case.

The infiniti dealer in Taiwan had it made for the FX, the only accessory they have.

I have to agree with MGFR, it looks like either the Filter came loose from the venturi (wasnt clamped on tight) OR the venturi wasnt bolted to the MAF tube correctly.

Didn't you also post someplace that you previously had the K&N drop-in and when you swapped to the Stillen you thought it was quieter? This really shouldn't be the case and this could be why. You should have a pretty pronounced intake suck when you get on the throttle.

Here's a pic of SweetFX's Stillen from a nearly identical angle. You can clearly see the diference in filter orientation. Seriously, man, you very well could be driving around with ZERO filtration, sucking God knows what into your engine.. Check it out NOW. If it's F'd up, we can talk you through fixing it yourself if you can't get it to a shop right away.

Who installed it and how long has it been on?

I will get it checked out immediately. **** speed shops in Taiwan, if only more people with fx would modify thier cars, then more people would know how to work with them.

jimsbmw,

What kind of bulbs you have for your turn signals and parking lights? That blue looks nice. But I think that blue turn light is illegal here, right? BTW, your FX looks nice.

I didn't know that there is an Infiniti dealer in Taiwan. I know Infiniti is opening up its first dealer in Korea soon.

filter is in the wrong position...it looks upright when it should be on its side with the plastic bottom outward.

Well it cost 8000 nt for it and I can ask for you if it will fit on the 45, there are only one or two 45 in Taiwan. 8000 = almost US$250.00
