This is a basic Intercooler Layout for 4thgen / 5thgen /5.5 Gen’s. Same side vs opposite side is a personal choice. Same side has more psi drop, more hard bends, more expensive intercooler. Other style less hard bends, less psi drop, cheaper IC but longer piping.
I really like same side intercooler but my next Maxima won’t have one cause it limits how I can run my CAI piping for the turbo filter due to congestion and the few extra inches in piping won’t really effect anything anyways.
