Hey all,

I have 2000 SE Sentra, and currently there are two CAI for it, the Place Racing and the Hotshot. Anyone know which one is better?? Better as in which one is quiter (I want mine to be quite) and which one gives the biggest performance boost?? Any tips?

Considering I've had the pleasure of having both intakes at one time or another, I can tell you that the performance gains are quite the same, as well as the sound. People have had different experiences with both intakes concerning fit and finish. For me, though, the Place Racing intake did not fit all too well. The Hotshot, on the other hand, fit nicely. Again, people have had different experiences with both intakes. You can't go wrong with either of them.

Just last weekend. =) I had been eye-ing one for the past few weeks. It'll eventually be my "trackslut," but for this year, it'll be my SCCA Solo2 E-Stock autoxser.

as far as the 2 co.'s go, as said before, they should both provide the same hp/tq gains. however, do you want it right now or later? if you want it now, the PR. If you want to wait, the HS.

Personally, i have the PR peice and have had no ill effects of fitment or build quality.

I've got the hotshot and it fits perfect. Can't really comment on the sound though. Can't hear a damn thing over my exhaust. I guess it starts making noise over 4k, right about where the header starts to pull pretty hard.

I am quite content with my place racing. didnt have any fitment problems, well not really. The pipe going into the fenderwell is lsightly too long, and my fliiter almost rubs my fenderwall lining, but that can be fixed in a jiff with a dremel or roto zip

HOTSHOT ALL THE WAY!!!!!!


I have had experience with 2 Place racing CAI's and 1 Hotshot and let me tell you, the HOTSHOT was better. It fit better, came with a BETTER filter, and looks better.

Oh yeah, I am so damned brand loyal to Hotshot, too. So that might be part of it...

Well... Now that you mentioned it (as did Sheening)... most likely. =) Although, I'll suck big time anyway.
