I want to do a Nissan 350z Intake Show-Down. But first we have to take a look at each specific Nissan 350z Intake. And the K and N Cold Air unit is the first choice.
K and N have been making intakes and more importantly air filters for decades. Their air filters are so well known and popular that I bet there is not one form of motor racing where they are not present.
Let’s have a look at two different intakes from K and N for the 2003-2006 VQ35DE and 2007-2009 VQ35HR engines.
Starting with the K and N Intake for the 2003-2006 350Z, let’s take a look at the price. This intake costs around $275. It’s a good looking piece and nets 11 horsepower and 10 lbs-ft of torque. The K&N cold air intake is a good looking piece (shown above) with its black ram intake tube. Something a little more on the down low and less flashy than a big chrome piece. This intake will fit 2003, 2004, 2005, and the 2006 model year 350Z.

For the 2007 and 2008 model year, the Nissan 350Z got more horsepower in the form of revised intake and exhaust systems. And the K and N short ram Intake for these model years nets 8 horsepower and 7 lbs-ft of torque. The cost for this set-up is $360. This includes two polished short ram intakes.
And the best thing about these intakes is that it is CARB legal in all 50 states, meaning you will not be getting a ticket for this part from the coppers. Top it off with a million mile warranty on the air filter itself, and the K and N intake for the Nissan 350Z is a great bargain.
