AEM Intake Installed with Nisei Turbo Inlet and LICP

I spent most of my evening installing new parts on my car since I can now pop the hood. This evening I took the time to install my AEM intake, Nisei LICP, and the Nisei Turbo Inlet. I did modify the MAF housing that came with the AEM system so It would fit with Nisei Turbo Inlet. Cutting the MAF pipe consumed the majority of my time cause I had to do it manually cause I have no power tools othere than a drill.
My small review. First up the AEM intake. It went in very easy. Fitment was mostly on par except for the a rubber thing that is suppose to seal the hole around where the MAF housing enters into the box. This was a complete pain in the ASS. I finally gave up and figured it cant be that big of a deal. It looks really clean. I left the battery unplugged throughtout the entire installation to reset the ECU. I took it out on the road after all was installed. The first few hard runs to 75 down the turnpike were a little choppy and I was getting worried, but I knew the ECU needed time to learn. I drove over all about 20 miles just getting on and off the highway so I could accelerate pretty hard. After about the 4th acceleration something clicked and the car really started to go. It is the first time I have actually felt a difference in the car after I installed something. I have no doubt in my mind the car was hitting harder above 4k rpm. I would definitely recommend an intake like AEMs. I let the car sit for 10min at idle and no issue and there is definitely a performance gain.


Now for the Nisei LICP/Inlet review. As I have learned fitment was great with no issues what so ever. Finish was also really good. I did call Kevin @ Nisei during the install and he gave me some tips on how to make things go easier. All was provided that you need to install. The BOV is relocated so you cant see it when you open the hood. I personally like the look cause it looks less cluttered, but i know some like to see the big shinny BOV. Im sure some will have a difference of opinion on this. My only complaint and suggestion if you get this set up is go buy some longer zip ties the ones they provided are tiny and would not fit around any 2 hoses. Im going to buy some tommorrow.

Feel Free to pick out how crappy some of my install is. It the first time Ive really done it myself. I usually just pay to have it done lol. I do wish My Perrin FMIC would have been here. Now I have to take the front clip off again which is a pain without some ramp or something.

Looks great! Glad you got everything installed. Matte black is super stealthy.

Looks good, more and more that I see the AEM intake, I think I might lean towards getting it.

very nice, i just installed the same setup. waiting to get my uicp back from kevin, it got a little damaged during shipping. What did you ziptie that breather filter to? i kinda have it dangling, but i haven't driven the car lol. . . . also you should have asked kevin to cut the maf pipe for you, he cut mine

So where exactly is the BOV relocated to now? Other than knowing where the BOV it looks clean. VERY clean. I may go the AEM and Nisei route now....

Wow that looks totally stock. Will any cone filter work in that AEM box?

Also, do you have a tune yet? Or are you still running on the factory reflash?
