they are all too close to call..

I have the JWT pop charger.. But soon i'll replace with the ARC box.. Just to complete the ARC theme.


You cannot go wrong with the JWT..

Yeah, I think Injen CAI claims more HP, but JWT is a close second. We sell more of the JWT, but Injen is a close second. Hope this helps!

the injen doesn't make that much sound. i have 2 friends with it. the AEM is def. the loudest people ask me all the time what i have. sounds great and super easy install took me about a half hour to do it. bought it through nolimitmotorsport.com they match or beat any online price. i think it cost me like $209.00

Injen. You want the most HP no matter the price, the Injen will supply it.

I've been informed that under certain circumstances, the JWT Popcharger gave more gains than the Injen. I say go with the Popcharger for performance. If you want that show quality look too, you might want to look into the Injen. It's really cool looking :thumbsup:

I agree that the AEM is very loud at WOT. I love the sound. Seems louder/meaner than the popcharger IMO.

illz33, larger tubing, different material that won't heatsoak as soon, better filter placement, etc. Those are a few reasons it will gain power.

JWT has long been the best bang for your buck, but never the most power. I would have recommended AEM before I saw [email protected] Nissan's thread about the intakes and he said the Injen has the optimum placement of the air filter out of the CAIs. Most people can't rationalize paying $100 more for a few more horsepower. So, like I said, if you want the most power regardless of price, get the Injen CAI (it will help when you are dyno'ing one day and praying for 300rwhp).

I agree. It's just silly going back and forth which is better.

That's like my buddy asking me the other day what battery to get.

"get the one that starts up everytime and is less wieght than the oem battery".

:)

hehe

later.

well i can say this much when i was "intake shopping" i very much did not like the look of the injen filter behind the grill. looks lost and out of place. and the injen makes no additional sound, and i dont like the way the large silicone pipe rubs on the stuck air duct hole through the radiator support. just my opinion im not saying one is better than another. intake is the most overrated BS horsepower you can gain. go with what looks and sounds the best. i have AEM now but am going to take it off because my new intake will be a 3" pipe fed by a 60-1 turbonetics turbo. :irock:

So true Chris, the gains you are going to get are going to be minimal, you won't even feel the "increase in hp" it will change the sound tho. MY opinion is get the one that you like the best, I got the K&N Typhoon b/c it's CF heat sheild mainly, that and the intake tube is in the grille, but the filter is where the stock box goes, short ram, cold air, best of both worlds! I don't really think one is better over another, it's personal preference. We've been round this subject more than a few times LOL :wink: :wavey: :yourock:

As this has already been stated - beatin the dead horse anyway - a CAI is a CAI. They all suposedly make about the same HP. I can tell you that the JWT popcharge has flowbenched the best out of the whole lot. 2nd was the stock Air Box, Third was the Injen & in last place was the AEM/Nismo. (Nismo is just a rebadged AEM) None of them are really going to "add" HP. Best bet is to get the one that YOU want.

JWT over injen any day. The JWT has a metal air horn, the injen is molded plastic in the filter itself, also the JWT has more surface area than the Injen, with the front portion sucking air through the hole for the stock intake.

Also, Lemans350Z did a before and after dyno with the injen 3 years ago, installed on the dyno and only gained 1hp with it.

It's an intake man. You may get 5HP MAX if you are lucky. I think many people do it more for show. But it's not like it will give you any huge advantage on a Z without one.
