Supercharged 2003 Frontier Crewcab

Don't go into this expecting miracles, the truck is still underpowered with the 3.3, even the supercharged model. That said, this intake really opened things up and added a noticeable increase in acceleration, particularly in the 3000 rpm range. Should mention the truck also has a Magnaflow cat-back exhaust, another necessary addition if you're wanting bolt-on power. Quality quite good, arrived in 3 days, looks nice, took an hour 1/2 to install. The white plastic vacuum takeoff fitting is wrong, chuck it and salvage the one off the original airbox. Can't wait to do these same mods to the wifes X-Terra.

Overall Great Investment

Does exactly as it is supposed to, I noticed a slight increase in my MPG and a little more pickup in the horsepower. Has a great "throaty" sound to it as well. The only issue I had was during installation, the hose connector they supplied didn't fit in the hole they provided in the intake without shaving or smashing the tip. Once we were able to force it in, the connector had some "play", but my mechanic friend said it wouldn't be a problem. Seems to be working fine after 2 weeks of driving (100 miles a day).

I got the AEM Brute Force intake hoping to be able to feel a slight improvement in power and maybe get a little bit better gas mileage(if I can keep my foot out of it, hehe). Fitment is good and installation went smoothly. I immediately felt a noticeable difference. Definitely more power and smoother acceleration throughout the full rpm range. I also love how my truck sounds now. Great at idle and low rpms, and if I floor it I can really hear the supercharger whine! Before I installed the intake I was getting an average of 16.5mpg. I've only had the intake for a week, so haven't put on enough miles to get an accurate mpg for after the install. Will post a follow up titled "MPG Before and After" in a few weeks after a few tanks of gas so I can get a decent average. Over all I am EXTREMELY pleased with this intake!

After several years of using the old style oiled air filter, the AEM Brute Force Air Intake for my Nissan Frontier has literly breath new life into it. It was easy to install, and I'm getting a mile more per gallon. This is hard to measure because I always want to punch the excellerator to her that roar! Best performance purchase for the buck!!!!
