Z1 Q50 / Q60 3.0t Cold Air Intake System

Product Description

The all-new Z1 cold air intake for the Infiniti Q50 Sedan and Q60 Coupe is an easy-to-install performance upgrade that offers a substantial increase in flow over stock providing improved power and response.

One of the best methods of increasing the output of turbocharged engines is by eliminating any restriction for air entering the turbo. Doing so reduces the pressure ratio across the turbo’s compressor and reduces the turbo speed required to produce the requested air flow. This means the turbocharger can do its job more efficiently and deliver cooler/denser air to the engine. The 3.0t (VR30) in your Infiniti is fed by two Garrett turbochargers that ingest air from the car's intake system. Air is drawn through the ducting above the core support, passes through the air filter, and is routed to the inlet of the turbo where it is ingested and turned into BOOST! The factory intake system was designed to be cost-effective and flow just enough air to meet the performance needs of the stock car. The Z1 Intake System was designed to eliminate the restriction of the factory panel filters, improve the air path between the core support and turbo inlet, and in doing so provide a substantial increase in air flow to support higher horsepower applications.

The first step in improving the air path was to replace the stock corrugated rubber intake piping with a smooth multi-ply silicone hose. By providing air with a smoother path to travel, intake turbulence is reduced resulting in improved airflow. The Z1 air intake system features two newly engineered air filters, designed exclusively for the Nissan 3.0t engine. These filters use a high-density media capable of capturing most particulates while providing exceptional airflow. Inside of the filter, a velocity stack has been integrated into the base to optimize airflow and increase air velocity. To contain these large-media filters, we developed a sealed airbox available in either plastic (standard) or carbon fiber! While some manufacturers use a blend of fiberglass and carbon fiber, Z1 3.0t Intakes are manufactured from 100% carbon fiber! The sealed boxes keep hot air out of the engine bay, only allowing cool air ducted from the OEM intake cowl to enter the intake!

Below you can see the dyno chart, delta power gains, and flow bench data comparing Z1 intakes to the stock intakes. Due to the various levels of tune affecting final numbers we have opted to show gains on a stock tune ONLY. This shows the expected performance on the average Q50/Q60. Additional power gains can be expected on cars with larger turbos or higher levels of tune.

2019 Q50 Redsport 400 Gives it a noticeable increase in throttle response. Definitely make the blow off valves sound more crisp. Induction sounds 👌

Pretty tight fit against the wiring harness on passenger side, maf housing didn’t really “want” to sit in the turbo inlet. Doesn’t sound too much louder with the cowl on. Air intake temps are staying low tho, and I feel a noticeable change in pick up

A little more of an advanced install due to clearances for tools. About an hour or so. Can hear the turbos a little now with the windows down. No amazing gains but still a must for anyone going for bolt on power.

This was simple to install for my Q50RS if you can follow basic directions with pictures. Very thorough on some of the removal of OEM. This with an exhaust and the hotbox has woke the beast!!

Installation was OK. Only real complaint would be the ease of changing or cleaning filters. Must take out entire air box to accomplish.

Great alternative. Easy to follow instructions. Fitment is almost 100 percent. You do have to spend time aligning it so there are no leaks around the gaskets.

4/5. I’d like to see a revision to the metal bracket opening. Keep the tolerance a little tighter so it’s not as easy for the gasket to pop out only the groove. That made install troublesome along with the tight vr30 engine bay. Intakes sound awesome. And notice decent improvement. Once exhaust and tuned I’ll see the real gains. Definitely the better option over other company’s priced around 500

The intake system arrived sooner than expected and we'll packaged. With the instructions obtained and printed out from the website, the installation was straight forward in under an hour with basic hand tools. Typical driving is spirited but the throttle response has increased over the stock intakes. Well worth the investment.

Engine is really packed in tight so it was kind of a pain to install but after it's in there it really makes it all worth it! I love the sweet sweet induction noises that I get now when I takeoff!

So far this intake has been amazing , definitely freshens up the engine bay . The only thing I wish is for more detailed instructions, and a detailed parts list . But amazing intake for what’s on the market

Somewhat difficult to install due to the lack of markings on components to designate sides. Also, the intake box itself is difficult to install properly with the filters due to tight clearances and partly unclear installation instructions. However, once completed, they look good and improve overall efficiency of the car. Under WOT, they can be heard slightly, but they're normally very quiet.

I am very please with this cold air intake from Z1 Motor Sports. The quality and fitment are great. I already have a few mods on my Q50 and with this install, I can hear and feel the difference. My blow-off valves even sound more crisp and at lower rpm. I would definitely recommend this product!!!

Noticeable power gains in the higher rpm range but the sounds it makes are absolutely awesome. I highly recommend this product to any of you looking to get an intake for Q60/Q50. Shipping was fast and I am satisfied with the product. Shipping was also very well secured.

May 18, 2022
Overall, I am pleased with the product. Some noticeable quicker spool and some sound increases. Per Z1's graph data, these flow better than just drop in filters so these should shine more with more mods and a tune in the future! Only complaint I have is installation, the assembly of the air boxes with the rubber gasket seals was a pain. Perhaps consider loosening up on the tolerance a smidge when making these. I also found it much easier to install with the gaskets on the MAF adapter plates first then into the airbox (not like the instructions direct) These look very clean in the engine bay and I enjoy having them on my car now.
