Default How to Fix Chernmax's Broken Intake Bracket

Courtesy of Chernmax

------
OK, the Injen CAI mounting SUCKS, driving vibration first took out the rubber boot mounting screw, I re-inforced the mounting and the freaken weld broke... DAMM... So some of you might have this (see pic below)

Click the image to open in full size.

My Fix, about $20 clams:

Parts Used:
1- ROL Exhaust heavy duty tail pipe hanger.

2- 2 RE Works High Grade Aluminum Quick Release Racing Clamps

The task: Using a vice, I bent the Exhaust bracket in a 90 degree angle and attached it to the lower engine mounting bolt just below the Injen, using 1 clamp, I added a new forward midbody support clamp by hooking it around the Exhaust Hanging bracket U-hook, (The Rubber vibration spacer allowed it to twist nicely into place and is 50 times stronger than the stock shock mount).

Another benefit; the bracket is now mounted under the CAI and eliminated all stress on the mounting hardware. I also replaced the rear bracket (not required, however stronger), tightened down all. Job time, 17 minutes...

If you bent the hanger wider like the upside down L part maybe it would seat in better

SO I'm pretty sure that EVERYONE has this issue with this Injen intake system. I have spoken with Injen about this a few times. The rubber mounting system that they use to mount this is the same system they use for Murano's (which is the accurate design). The Maxima "Vibra-Mount" is mounted horizontally in the car whereas in the Murano it is screwed into a mounting bracket and mounted vertically so the intake sits on TOP of the bolt NOT screwed into the side of it putting pressure on it and eventually breaking it.

I have spoken with Paul Ho who is the head of Research and Product Development. If you need another mount, contact him and he will send you free replacements. I have gotten 3 so far, 2 broke in 3 years and one is in my glove box as a backup.

Give him a shout because he doesn't believe this issue is so prominent with this design.
