Anyone know the replacement part # for the engine air filter?
I got about 9100 miles on my Q50S hybrid and when I looks at the filters, it looks dirty. I'm probably have to replace it soon.

According to the manual, there are two air filters under the hood. Have you looked at both of them? From your post, I can't tell whether you're referring to one or two filters.

Yeah, there are 2 air filter.
You can take out the top cover to see the air filter. But, to take it out is a little bit difficult. You have to take it out to see the part #, I think.
I'll call Infiniti dealer and see how much they charge for the 2 air filter.

Changing Air filters is easy (15 miutes- tricks of the trade) and if you want clean like new OEM filters that I removed from my Q50S hybrid as I replaced them with K&N filters. Send me PM or email.

KN is hype. Trust me.

You will most likely lose some bottom end torque and only gain perhaps 1-2 hp + a louder intake noise.

Now to play devil's advocate I've had them in every single car I have ever owned. Why? cheaper to clean them than buying new filter every time and because I have always seen a 1 or so mpg gain.

Big cons
- Filters way less so you are allowing more dirt in the engine (but have never felt the effects of this as I trade cars every 1.5 to 2 years
- If over oiled, it can soiled your MAF


What I have always done and has worked for me
- Before installing, I place the filters out in the open laying on top of newspapers so most of the factory oil it sucked right up

This is exactly what happen to my MAF sensor a while back on my Honda Accord. I turn on the ignition and a few second later the car just shutdown.
It took me a while to figure out it was the MAF sensor. Luckily, I purchased CRC MAF sensor cleaner and clean the MAF + Intake value. My car was fine afterward.
Good advice on the air filter placing it under the Sun to sucked up the oil. Wish I had known that back than.
I don't know if I going back to K&N again. It kind of scare me ever since that incident.

Nice found. I like the price of these Fram air filter.
How is the quality compare to the oem air filter?
“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.”

I have had terrible experiences with Fram oil filters. Not once but twice! Shame on me. If in doubt you will never get hurt with OEM parts.

I would not use a Fram oil unless it was their top tier product. Their basic air filter is good quality though. I used them as replacements in my Q50. They fit well and are very inexpensive. The media felt very similar to the OEM filter in looks and density. I wish AEM would produce their dry drop in reusable filters for the Q. Easy to clean, great filtering and in most cases, less expensive than the K&N, which owns AEM now.
