AAM Competition Infiniti Q50 & Q60 S-Line / R-Line Cold Air Intake System
Flexibility, Tunability, Performance! The AAM Competition Q50 & Q60 Intake System is the ONLY adjustable intake system for the Infiniti Q50 & Infiniti Q60– giving you the option to maximize your vehicle's performance depending on your Infiniti's current setup (stock, mildly modified, heavily modified).
Developed with upgradeability in mind, the variable design provides flexibility in engine tuning and greater air flow. Stock or near stock Infiniti Q50/Q60’s will use the intake in S-Line configuration. In S-Line configuration the intake can be installed on the vehicle without any other adjustments and provides a clean, easy to install 10+ horsepower gain. Infiniti Q50’s and Q60's equipped with more bolt-on upgrades and engine tuning will use the intake in R-Line configuration. R-Line configuration provides maximum air-flow to the engine allowing for up to 20 to 25+ horsepower gains when tuned.
How an intake works on the modern day Infiniti:
The MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor) is a critical component in running a modern day engine. The MAF reads the volume of air passing by it in a tube and translates this “mass” of air into an electronic signal. This signal is sent electronically to the Infiniti Q50 / Q60’s ECM (Electronic Control Module – the cars computer) which uses this information as the main reference to run the Q50/Q60’s engine. The diameter of the MAF housing (which is integrated into the factory intake) is critical as the sensor is calibrated to read a specific range of frequency (flow) in a specific size and shape MAF housing. Aftermarket intakes most commonly use the small stock MAF housing or use a tube that is the same diameter of the MAF housing so that the MAF sensor reads the same (otherwise, tuning to recalibrate the MAF sensor would be necessary).
So, even though most aftermarket intakes have larger filters and/or larger filter boxes, they either re-use the stock MAF housing or the size of the MAF housing remains the same as stock, therefore not allowing any more air to flow through the MAF than the factory intake and MAF housing already does. This is where the AAM Competition Infiniti Q50 & Q60 S-Line / R-Line Cold Air Intake System shines by providing the option to utilize a significantly larger MAF housing and significantly increasing air flow.
The S-Line Tuning Inserts (colored in red) are installed in this rendering. When the S-Line Tuning Inserts are installed in the included larger AAM Competition MAF Housings, the internal diameter closely matches the factory MAF housings 2.43" inner diameter, which allows the intakes to be ran on an Infiniti Q50 & Q60 without any tuning, while still taking advantage of the much improved intake design with significantly larger airboxes and large high-flow conical performance air filters.
The S-Line Tuning Inserts in the AAM Competition MAF Housing are removed - allow for full 3" unrestricted maximum air flow!
Common intake mistakes - buyer beware:
The factory intakes utilize a well engineered completely sealed style intake box. However, the design does not allow for a properly sized conical filter for best air flow. Many aftermarket intake kits for the Q50 and Q60 have much larger air filters, but they do not utilize completely sealed intake boxes. Instead they use easy to make and cheaper heat shields and/or partial heat shield boxes. Why is this bad for the Q50 & Q60? Even though these types of intake kits have a larger filter, they have shown reductions in power on the dyno. This is because without a completely sealed air box, the air filters will draw in the hot air surrounding the engine compartment. Utilizing completely sealed intake boxes, the AAM Competition Infiniti Q50 & Q60 S-Line / R-Line Cold Air Intake System is a true cold air style intake system that draws in cooler air from outside of the engine compartment.

S-Line Intake Configuration
AAM Competition engineered the intakes to use larger 3" MAF housings for maximum flow. When running the intake on an Infiniti Q50 / Q60 with stock tuning, the intakes features a carefully engineered MAF (Mass Airflow Sensor) insert called the S-Line Tuning Insert. By reverse engineering the OEM MAF sensor housing and after many hours of intense testing, AAM Competition determined the optimal shape and diameter for the S-Line Tuning Insert. The S-Line Tuning Insert affects the OEM ECU programming in a way that keeps everything within specifications for normal operation while taking advantage of smoother, less restrictive piping and filtering for impressive power gains.
R-Line Intake Configuration
For those wanting maximum power, simply remove the S-Line Tuning Insert and tune the car using aftermarket tuning software. Removing the S-Line Tuning Insert allows for maximum airflow to move unrestricted through the intake optimizing efficiency and performance.
R-Line Intake Configuration shown below!
All hardware and install instructions are included with the kit. Large wire enforced 4-ply silicone turbocharger inlet pipes ensure a snug fit, while allowing for engine movement and flex. The wire enforcement ensure the turbocharger inlet pipes will not collapse under high suction from the turbochargers. The high flow air filters keep the air flow unrestricted, while efficiently protecting the engine from the elements.
Note: the S-LINE Tuning insert will come pre-installed, if you plan on running the stock tune, leave it installed. If you are getting a full tune, remove the insert for maximum flow.
