    Hi there,

    Any of you guys have a hardpipe induction or what setup is best/do you use?

    Any help and advice will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Chris

    Apexi Induction kits are really good, and for the price you can't go wrong really...

    You could go for a K&N or Pipercross. But they don't come with with the hard pipe.

    Do not go for HKS. Good air flow but that's because it doesn't filter it.

    Thanks man.

    Looking for a hardpipe induction but there doesn't seem to be too many made. There is one on eGay america, dc sports short ram intake comes with hardpipe and filter but for a 89-94 240sx sr20det , wonder would it fit.

    Be aware of air reversion when using a hardpipe from maf to turbo its quite common with apex hardpipes but can be resolved by welding an X in near the maf

    This ^

    That would probably work. But i'm not very familiar with DC Sports, all I know is that they make it sound quite cool. AEM do an induction could check them out. :)

    i made one myself with bits from ebay, 3" pipe and a couple of 2 1/2" - 3" reducers. i only did this in preperation for a z32 maf at some point, as they are made to fit 3" pipes. otherwise you could use 2 1/2" pipe and joiners. did it all for less than £20. people talk about them causing problems and needing a X welding in. mine ran no differently and i have had no problems as a result of fitting it.
