AZ-ZBUM did a compaision test at one time (listed on his website now) where he found that the Team Green performance air filter had slight but a noticable amount more horsepower gain. You can pick it up here for less (it appears) than the $56.90:

I enjoy the K&N though - I've had mine for several years so you are good whichever way you decide to go. You can also replace the black box to the right with straight 3" (? pretty sure) pipe for a little more engine growl.

I looked at the Team Green filter too. I liked the price, but the ricer in me wanted something that really filled up where the stock airbox was.

what about the FIPK air intakes? Do those work better or what? WHy are they that much more expensive than the other filter?? I m a novice please educate me. I know how cars work and such, just not much experience. I'm 17 and my AWESOME grandfather willed me his 85 300zx for my 16th birthday. I have been driving it for a year and a few months. 2 speeding tickets prove my love for this car. I have replaced the clutch, radiator, rack and pinion, the exhaust system and some other little stuff too. The engine is basically new though. Any suggestions on preformance upgrades? I am going to get an air intake but what should i get for the most horse power? Also a nismo stabilizer and ground wires. Where do ya'll get those spark plug wires from??
THanks

Aftermarket ground wires = waste of money.

My 8.5mm MSD wires = <http://www.thespecshop.com>

nismo stabilizer???

My 12" K&N filter, (pictured above) <http://www.4filters.com> #RF-1011

this is the same filter used in the FIPK, but just much much cheaper...

If you want to replace the stock resonator(I chose not to) just get a piece of 3" Outer Diameter piping, and replace it...or you can get one of these

As far as upgrades.....READ THIS!!!
