Default 240sx intake

1999 4cly, 5speed, 2wd.
The 240sx feels like it has way more power than the truck.
I think it's the same motor. Intake system is different.
Would a intake system from a 240sx fit on this motor????
How much power would be gained????
Would it be worth it????

1998 240SX
Curb weight: 2,800 to 2,862 lbs
Horsepower: 155 hp

1999 Frontier
Curb weight: 2,911 to 3,726 lbs
Horsepower: 143 hp

So, 12 more Horsepower.

I suspect the 240 is faster because it weighs less, though.

Not really much difference.
Probably not worth the work.

Now, on the other hand, if you want to turbo your KA24 engine, the 240 intake (I hear) is much better suited for that.

Looking for a little more low end power.
Turbo would be nice, but not what I'm looking for,
