G20Turbo said:Hey Sport I personally think you should get the Hotshot... The Stillen CAI is only an extension pipe which means you keep the stock plastic tubing from your throttle body to your MAF then you add a little extension pipe from Stillen that leads to a little area right by the wheel well. The Hotshot comes with both pipes so it replaces the plastic tubing from the throttle body to the MAF and then also has the extension... On top of that the Hotshot comes in a nice chrome finish to compliment your beautifully finished chrome valve cover. Both come for almost the same price (I think the Stillen is actually more because luke at digitalracer.com can get you the Hotshot for 190$ I think) With all that said the Hotshot would be the better bargain giving you more horsepower for the better price and it would look better
BTW where did you get your chrome valve cover?
If i remember correctly. they compared the HOT SHOT CAI to the stillen POP , not to the stillen CAI. AEM make there piece for the sr20 the same size as the stillen piece. I love my stillen CAI. my only regret is that I didn't build my own instead of paying $250.casual said:as far as the battle between hs or stillen the only reason i ever suggest hs over stillen cai to people is only because of sport compact cars comparisen on these a long time ago wich showed the hs one had the most gain in hp

Sounds good, So Luke would be able to get me it for 190? Thats a good price! I got my VC from a friend who works at Infiniti when I bought my car he put that on for me, I didnt even know he was going to do it he just added it on for me.. =)
I believe that is correct. The 2.5" is best for low to mid range power gains. The 3" is best for high-end gains. I personally plan on making a homemade CAI with the JWT-pop charger and 2.5" piping since I very seldom go over 5500rpm.Ericdd said:I have the stillen and it is an extension pipe. stillen is 2.5" and the other two are 3". from what i read on the sr20 forum anything bigger than 2.5" kills mid range, The mass air is even smaller than 2.5". AEM makes theirs 2.5 for the sentra sr20de and they do alot of research. The stillen is a little more $ than the others but your paying for thier research....

If you ask me the hot shot and place racing look like they just made it fit, no brackets to hold it from hitting the holeand nothing else that looks like they put time in it. the stillen has a big air filter(k&n) that is angled toward the front. I didn't know any of this before I bought mine I just got screwed by place racing so I bought the stillen. I am making the Warm air part now I welded the tubes on to an exhaust pipe and painted it , I just need to get the reducers ,
