I finally converted the HPS short ram intake into a cold air intake!
View attachment 18073
I've been thinking about doing this since I first started looking into the HPS intake. I was interested in this intake mainly because it follows the path the stock intake follows, and I knew that eventually I could convert it into a cold air intake with some extra piping.

This set up feels very sturdy. There is little to no wiggle room and it has hood clearance.

The sound is amazing! I was skeptical at first because I knew that cold air intakes aren't generally as loud as short rams due to placement, but I can tell you that this was not the case! Surprisingly enough, I think it's better. The induction sound when rev'ing is just as amazing as it was with the short ram. But what makes it better, is that while adding throttle, the intake actually sounds better driving down the road! It has a louder and throatier sound to it that wasn't as noticeable with the short ram. Overall I am extremely surprised and pleased with the sound.

As for performance, the temperature has dropped significantly as well. I haven't been able to test it very much since I just put it in, but I've been able to see at least a change of 20º F cooler. Is it faster? I think so, the car feels like it performs better with this new intake, but who knows, maybe its a placebo effect. Regardless, it feels amazing.

Great work! To all the people complaining that the 2nd gen doesn't have a CAI available, get creative!

Do you mind if I share this to the Versa Technical Forum Facebook group?

Here is a thread for just things you did to your Versa on any paticular day. Sometimes we don't feel like making a whole new thread but want to tell the community that I changed the oil, washed it, swapped on my summer wheels, did a tune up, installed a supercharger or whatever. Hopefully we can keep this thread going for as long as we own our V's.

So I will start. I cleaned up my interior. Just took out all the garbage and gym clothes, water bottles, and lunch containers. Man was it a mess.

Changed AT fluid today (plus oil change etc) , I have 115k and I'm not sure it was ever done before that. Original fluid was still in good shape color/odor, but I guess it was time.

S-Matic fluid OEM used.

On Thursday I'll give the CC another try.

Added OEM cruise control!

1) steering switch
2) ASCD brake switch
3) ECM from a same year-model-trans-cruised car.

Nissan Consult III plus needed for registering keys and ECM.
