One of if not the best value for money mod that every performance motor benefits from is an aftermarket intake kit. The VQ37VHR fitted in the Z34 370z/V36 Skyline is certainly no different with power gains of 15hp+ achievable when using the GKTech 370z cold air intake kit.
The GKTech intake kits are constructed from high quality mandrel bent aluminium, are TIG welded, are available with either black or polished pipes and by utilizing 2.5" pipework a tune is not required.
We have designed this kit with ease of installation in mind. No permanent modifications are required and no cutting of the radiator support is required as seen with most aftermarket intake kits available on the market today.
Being that we are an Australian business we are familiar with RHD vehicles. We discovered that the fitment of some of the USA sold kits was not great as the wiring loom near the strut tower on the LH side isn't there on LHD cars (it's on the RH side). As a result of this, we have made our kits with this information in mind and this kit will fit both LHD and RHD vehicles perfectly.
- 2.5" mandrel bent aluminium pipework
- TIG welded
- All new stainless steel clamps
- New silicone hoses included (no factory hoses required)
- No permanent modifications required for installation
- Fits both LHD and RHD vehicles
NOTE: if fitting to a V36 fitted with a VQ35HR then you will need to make your own PCV solution as the VQ37 setup does differ.
FAQsWill this fit a 350z?
No, this kit has been designed specificially for the Z34 370z and it will not fit a 350 (even the HR variant).
Will this fit a V36?
Yes, both coupe and sedan! Note that it will not be a direct fit with the VQ35HR variant. If your V36 is fitted with a VQ35HR then you will need to make your own PCV pipes as the VQ37 setup is a little different.
Do the filters need to be oiled?
No, the filters supplied do not require oiling and are classed as a dry filter.
Do you sell replacement pod filters to suit?
We do. Should the need arise in the future, you can purchase here: https://au.gktech.com/replacement-pod-filter-for-370z-cold-air-intake
Very very good service, I ordered sunday and it arrived on my doorstep wednesday morning. Super easy and straight forward install. Also a noticeable difference in sound and power gain without a tune too. I do wish the kit came with a sticker
I had previously installed the Stillen short tube intakes which performed satisfactorily during cold engine conditions. However, during prolonged operation for approximately thirty minutes, heat soak was observed resulting in reduced engine performance, sometimes leading to derated or degraded engine timing. In contrast, the current intakes have proven to be reliable without any issues, and are economically priced in comparison to the Z1 Motorsport options available from the United States. It is noteworthy, however, that installation without cutting would necessitate excessive force to fit the silicone hose which could compromise air flow by up to a quarter of the intended size. As a solution, I opted to cut the hole through which the hose is passed and the result is a properly fitting and unobstructed installation
The item is great but if the c pipes were aluminium instead of silicone would have been much better.
Its a nice kit, good quality construction and fits in pretty easily (once you work out how to get the bumper off!).
The issue I had though is I have a 2008 V36 Sedan with a VQ35HR. The PCV system is a bit different to the VQ37VHR and so the crank breather setup means the breather tubes on the pipes are at the wrong angle. I wasnt able to make it work with the included 16mm silicone tubing but I found a $25 16mm heater hose with the correct U bend and kink bend to chop up and make it work.
Hi Jarrod, sorry for the trouble with this one. I have updated the listing to make it clear that the intakes will not work with a VQ35HR without DIY'ing the PCV hoses.
Installation was a breeze. Everything fit as it should. Great alternative to others like z1. Came packaged exceptionally well. Fixed my acceleration lag and heat soak issues (previous owner) 5/5 would order again.
