You should be able to get a Nismo Cheaper!!!

The reason the nismo is so expensive at the "stealership" is because they put a warranty on it. If you have any problems with the air flow meter, they cover it. With any other oiled intake you run the risk of damaging your air flow meter. and those are not cheap to replace.

A lot of guys like the AEM because it has a non-oiled filter and it has a nice look to it.

Just food for thought.

NISMO is R-tune, no warranty offer even if the dealer install it for you.

if this was true K&N would have gone out of business a long time ago. The oil does not hurt the MAF at all...

A little doesn't hurt it, but i've had to replace a MAF because of oil damage. I made a custom air intake for my pathfinder that had a HKS turbo intake cone. The filter was oiled like the K&N's and was the reason i had to spend $300.

There are other threads that people have talked about oil damage to the MAF.

Here is a pic of my pathfinder's intake...

I guess if you accidently over oil maybe but if you do it the way its supposed to be done its fine. Now those Fram boost foam filters I cringe at cause they are soked in oil but a properly oiled cotton mesh filter should not hurt a thing. I had one in my maxima for years and no problems

I am leaning toward the AEM set up because of the possibilty of issues with the mafs. But I also agree with cneary812. I doubt a new filter oiled at the factory would cause any problems. I suspect it's people who reoil after cleanning and get a little carried away. With the AEM set up this is a non issue. Similar power gains, similar price, good looking, cleanable, and no mafs issues sounds good to me. Why chance it.
