Use a rice pipe from Autozone or Advance Auto, and use a K&N RX-4750 filter. Shielding the filter is a recommendation.

Here'* the pipe and a link for it......



Here'* the filter.....



Here'* where to find the reducer.....



Just need to measure the throttle body to see what size ya need

Actually you don't need a reducer -the coupler that comes with the rice-pipe should fit the L36 TB.
I just put my old RE-0810 (K&N 9" cone) on the Autozone rice pipe and managed to fit the Rice Pipe coupler over my L67 TB lip, which I believe is bigger than the L36'*.

Also, I suggest you get a RE-0810 9" cone as it flows more than the 6" RX 4750, and cost is half as much.
If you use the RE-0810 filter ($36.xx at O'Rielleys) you will need to cut about 3-6" off the rice pipe to make the longer filter fit behind the core support.
You will need to place the coupler so it is barely on the pipe and the TB so there is room to cut a hole for your AIT (although if you have an AIT extender you can cut a small hole in the RE-0810 for the AIT sensor -the RX4750 has an AIT hole precut).

I'll argue nicely. The RX4750 has more surface area, and therefore will flow more. The base is MUCH larger than your 9" filter, and the RX4750 will end up placed much closer to the cold air supply. Not to mention that the base of the RX4750 is ideally suited for not only IAT mounting, but for building your CAI out of as well.

The filter suggested above is a simple cylinder. Calculating it'* surface area is a simple matter. Not the 4750. Because it'* an oval tapered cone, it gets much more complicated, but the overall surface area (if I recall correctly from a vague memory of the math I did over a year ago) is.....****. Very hard to calculate, but it is indeed higher than a 9" cylindrical filter, and doesn't have the disadvantage of the air entering the pipe at a 90 angle. The 4750 is a tapered design that allows the air to enter the intake pipe at less than 90, reducing turbulence and increasing velocity. Alot of thought went into it'* design.

The 4750 is a tapered cone that measures 8" across the base, AND has an X-stream top (end). You will be hard-pressed to find a better filter for several reasons, which is why it was so carefully selected and tested for our application.



The filter was originally designed for the supercharged Xterra market. When I heard of it, I contacted K&N about it, and was able to obtain a test unit.

Edit....found some of my old notes from way back when.....

Because of the tapered design, the lower portion of the pleats are spaced wider than a typical filter. This also allows for more airflow.

Think of it as HOW the air flows through it, and into the pipe. That'* the major advantage. A larger filter won't get you more performance, but it will perform LONGER between cleanings at a higher level.

I think most cars on this site wont be stressing the filter, Yes it'* more media so it wont need as much cleaning perhaps, but if you're not wanting to spend $60 on a filter, there'* plenty that will flow more then you'll ever need. Just make sure to get a name brand such as K&N or fujita..
