is between the 350Z OEM intake system and my FX system. I would compare, but my Z has an Injen on it. I am just trying to figure out why the short ram part of the Injen wouldn't fit on the FX? Any ideas?
What I am trying to figure out is if the Injen intake will fit on the FX, really. I mean, the Injen is manufactured as a cold air intake (two piece) system, but I would love to try it out on the FX.....ultimately, my question is this? Has anyone fitted any other upper intake piece besides the OEM Z tube?
Alright. Time to give it a whirl. I will post my results later on this week. I just refuse to believe that none of the intakes on the market (upper pieces) will fit. IMO, it would look great to have a full polished intake tube with an open element filter....
The FX intake tube is approx. 4" shorter than the Z tube, thus the need to extend it when replacing the stock FX tube with it. The Injen upper tube will likely be similar in length to the Z tube, therefore be a bit short and will set the filter further back in the engine bay. I really don't know why you'd want to use the Injen short ram as oppased to the Stillen or Popcharger with Z tube. The injen will have no heat sheild and not utilize the stock air inlets; you'll be sucking a lot more hot air than either of the other two intakes.
Namely because I have easy access to them (Injen tubes, I mean)
and because I would really like to have a polished intake system installed. If this works out, I will have the vehicle dyno'd at Street Flight here in PHX to see what kind of gains we are talking about.
I was wondering the same thing and cam to this conclusion. The Injen Upper chrome tube for the 350Z with a jwt pop charger would p;probably work. But I think its more for bling since the Z tube does the job just as well.
