Congrats and welcome to Driver. There is a bunch of info here with regard to intakes. It would serve you no justice to simply rattle off a few names. Truplay8 has mentioned a couple of really good ones for starters. As mentioned previously, perform a search and afford yourself the benefit of the info here on these boards.

Don't bother doing the search on CAI. It's been discussed so many times and there are so many different opinions. Everyone has their favorite CAI. I know I gave up after spending hours reading. BUT most opinions point to Stillen. Which is what I finally got

All intakes will generally make the same horsepower. Now, the normal question is to ask which one will make the MOST. The difference between the horsepower of every intake will be negated with some weight reduction, i.e. going to the bathroom? foregoing that bean burrito? Wearing lighter clothing?

That 1-2 WHP difference you see will NOT make a difference. There are however SOME intakes that should be avoided, which will provide absolute NO performance increase worth undertaking.

If you want my personal oppinion, you might want to consider the Weapon R intake since it provides the most aggresive intake sound of the bunch, and it appears to be pretty good. You may also want to take a look at Fujita () its a quality intake, with swirl grooves in the intake pipe that is supposed to create a small vortex mixing the fuel/air better. It's non-moving, so it's no worries about it falling apart and getting sucked up into your intake. Fujita for those of you who don't know, are some of the same guys who worked for Injen. They branched off making their own intake company, their quality imho is bar none. Then theres lastly the Nismo one you could use, quality intake, no complaints and apparently its pretty well built too.

Lastly, I would consider purchasing the following combination:

MD Intake Plenum Spacer
Fujita Intake for the G35/350Z
Stillen Exhaust [although just about any exhaust company makes a fairly good one]

You should net maybe 20 WHP with all 3 modifications? In simplest form, your butt dyno will record a nice increase.

Gentlemen,

Please provide your test results (dyno, G-Tech, track) that you base the above statements on. I'd like to add your data to my own. As you may know I've been testing and gathering information on aftermarket air intake systems for some time now. We find your test results are certainly different than ours. By the way "ALL" is a very big word, IMO.
