None. All of these intake are for sound and you will lose low end torque. There is no true cold air intake for our cars because it won't fit. Stillen Gen 3 was the true CAI, but they won't be making it as there is no space, per Stillen.

I actually installed K&N filters three weeks ago and I felt a little more torque when I step on the gas pedal now. I will be installing MAF intake tubes after.

Here is the link from HPS. There is Z1 and Mishimoto brands as well. They are for the G35/G37 but also fits our Q.
