Well, your really talking about personal opinion so here goes...

After reading for months and shopping around I went with the stillen box that comes with a K&N filter and added the ztube. Many others have done this before I and all seemed happy with the end result.

i know mustgofstr has this combo with the crawford plenum added to the mix :wink:

or see bradical's post here

Yup, I prefer the Stillen. Fits nice, sounds nice, looks basically stock and works with the stock intake inlets. Very nice indeed with the Z tube and Crawford plenum. 8)

the stillen intyake is a bit overpriced for just an intake.
You can get the JWT pop charger one for 109.99 at everythingg35

note that i connected the heat shield to the existing hangar for the old airbox and not the frame itself since the frame is so low. see attched pic...

ive actually run both of them myself as well... i just liked the installed look of the JWT.

with the stillen, hold the power duct over the opening on the heat shield and look at it from behind BEFORE you install. you might want to "bore" the opening a bit in the shield as the power duct has a larger opening. i think that SweetFX did this if i remember correctly.

Yup, I did that after she mentioned it. You can open it up quite a bit.

bradical, since you have done both, I have a question or two. Looking at the pics, it appears that the JWT heat shield does not have the coverage to isolate engine bay heat well. It looks like the sheild is only blocking flow from the radiator side. To me, it looks like the heat shield should also come across to the fender well. I know this is a G35 kit but could you please comment on this? From what I could see with the Stillen pics from Sweet FX, it also appears that the airbox has an open bottom of for greater flow. BUT, isn't this be defeating the purpose of preventing the warm air from the engine bay from entering the intake like the JWT? Comments?
I know I am going the Z tube but the air cleaner (JWT vs Stillen) is the one I am stumbling on. Cost difference is pretty dramatic too.
This will be my first mod. I am planning for the crawford and a grounding kit and maybe exhaust in the future.

Thanks for any insight.
Mike

Can you guys post a pic of what you are talking about regarding the "Bore" of the stillen intake. Sounds interesting and I want to do it to my setup.

Don't have a pic, but just look in where your stock Power Duct attaches to the Stillen shroud. If you can see the edge of the shroud in the hole, you can open up that hole to match the opening in the power duct. I was able to take about an inch off mine. The may have revised the shroud at some point, though; I haven't heard of people needing to do this lately.

No, you don't need to bore it anymore. Looked like mine was already redone by Stillen. They're probably monitoring our forum.
