Default Stillen Gen 3 on 2016 Nismo

Hey everyone!

I'm ready to upgrade my intake, but I can't find any documentation on what modification is needed to install a Stillen Gen 3 onto a Nismo (or, at least a 2015+ one). I have a 2016 model... can anyone point me to instructions or videos on what needs to be done?

Thanks!

You will have to modify the plastic intake ducts that the factory airboxes hook up to, this is so the intake pipe can pass through. You will need a dremel or something similar to grind out the material you don't need.

There should be a procedure in the DIY section of this forum (also there is more than likely videos on youtube)

If you don't like the idea of cutting into your car then the Z1 system is the next best, they use silicon hoses that pass through that section and are flexible enough so that you don't have to modify anything. The afe takeda also have flexible piping.

Hope this helps!

On the driver's side where the tube passes through. There are 2 A/C lines. Get a piece of rubber hose about 1.5" long. Slice it and put it over the one A/C line to keep the tube from rubbing through the A/C line. You can zip tie the hose in place.

Sweet! Thanks for the additional information about the rubber hoses. Just ordered it (and got a REALLY good deal on it new, too!). Should be delivered by June 20. Super excited!!

My G3ís, ordered from Z1, came with these hoses included. Also, there is a bracket on the passenger side core support that holds a wire. On my car, itís contacting a weld right next to the filter and I had to shave the bracket down a bit. Just keep an eye out for stuff like that.

I did this a while back. Lots of pics. Although mine is a 2010, I believe the support cuts/mods will be the same.

That looks beautiful.
I just installed mine, and I’m very happy with the results.

Check out the admin intakes aswell, I believe they have a similar design to the G3 but have bigger tubes even.
