Heya :)

Im looking at buying a new pod filter for my R34 RB25DET Neo. Last owner had a DRiFT one in there. 

I want to get the APEXi Power Intake pod filter but I've heard there's alot of fake ones out there on the market (ebay).

So I want to make sure that I'm buying the official one and not the fake one. 

I saw some ones on ebay from china, philippines for like less than $40, so that to me sounds like fake.

There is this one on ebay for $84 from Aus:

Does this one look legit? :huh:

I'd personally would never buy from Ebay for my car - why not spend $30 more and get one that you know is legitimate?

Have you shopped for Apexi Power Intakes from this site before? Just want to make sure they are legit

I also saw this from Apexi USA:

But the gasket in that pic looks just like the fake one that Dobz posted about. The shape of it :blink:

Im confused haha I just want to buy a legitimate one for the cheapest price :7_sweat_smile:

Nengun is the holy grail of import parts from Japan. They only sell OEM or branded names. I believe I got mine from just jap but they don't have it on their website.

I used to have a geniune apexi pod, wasnt cheap. Eventually decided to buy another and it was fake. Does the same shit, literally next to no difference in quality. Had no issues making more power (after other mods). I now run a cheap n nasty pod that people have had solid results with.

$10 paper filter FTW.


Except when you have an LS430 and OEM filter is over $140 and youre only other option is a $78 repco one, then the cashier feels sorry for you and gives you 40% off.

that one looks fake. This one is legit - blue gasket, and genuine seller, just cheap.

Standard Apexi Pod to suit R34 GT-T RB25DET Neo

http://justjap.com/apexi-power-intake-kit-nissan-z32-300zx-22775.html

This looks promising! Surely JustJap won't sell phony stuff will they?

 

Also, one could just bolt the apexi pod filter straight onto the factory MAF (with the gasket ofcourse), right?

:UPDATE:

I got my Apexi Power Intake from Justjap today.

I compared it with this fake/genuine article:

http://www.zerotohundred.com/newforums/showthread.php?t=349923

Then compared it with this video:

Mine looks like the genuine one in the video. But the brass screw genuine design on that other article looks different to mine and the video's genuine intake. weird... and mine is 75mm ID :blink: ? Anyway check for your selfs

PODs IMO would be one of the last things things to have major problems when using fake/cheap ones...

I'm currently running some $20 ebay POD in mine right now, I reused the gaskets from my Apexi one (and cleaned it with filter cleaner for use later on when this one gets dirty).
