stock intake w/ k&n cone

has anybody tried this or attempted it?

Before anybody says anything about researching it, I did, for 3months. So far i can not find information about one on a prelude. Everybody gets into the argument of short ram is better or CAI is better, but i have seen the results of the type s intake compared to these 'brand name' intakes and the type s has overall more efficient results. now what if you stick a k&n cone on there?
i just want to see if anybody has tried it. If not, i'll let you know how it goes if i decide to do this.

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

You can't be serious about searching for 3 months dude....For god sakes there is a sticky at the top of the 5th gen section about Intakes, I'll be helpful for you and post the link for you...Q&A - Intakes

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

i dont see anything there that is related to what i am looking for. i do not want to learn about intakes, for i have used and owned about every damn brand of it, i just want to know if its just better to use the stock intake and modify it to fit a k&n cone. I have searched three months not about intakes but about if anyone has tried to put a k&n cone on their stock intake. so before you address me with an answer please understand what i am looking for, and not to assume that just because i mentioned intakes that it directly means i dont know anything and i want to know which ones better. after all my question was has anyone tried to attempt the mod, not info on intakes please.

oh and yeah im new, to this forum but not to cars, so even if my thing says 'i'm new' don't assume that i don't know anything. thank you.

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

Wow, So you have been searching since August to find on of the easiest answers known to just about any car.....You seriously need to learn how to search, try typing in "Drop in filter prelude" in google and see what comes up as the first freaking link. WOW! took me 1 minute compared to your "3 months" of searching. And yes the "I'm New" does apply to you in a couple ways buddy...should say "I'm New To Searching".

Thanks, and good night!

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

once again not answering my question. did i say drop in? hmm.. don't think so. i'm talking about the performance cone filter. now if you have nothing else but to flame my thread i will report you. so if you don't have what i am looking for then don't try to make me look bad because you're just making yourself look stupid by giving me what i am NOT looking for.

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

drop in would be better then the cone on stock tube

if you got money best performance would be with bolt ons w/ a CAI tuned

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

the stock tube is all it is, a tube. you can get the same results with the same diameter metal pipe with a k&n cone on the end. its basically the exact same thing. plus the type s wasnt designed to work with a cone, it was designed to work with the box. if you want to try to rig something up, be my guest

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

there is a chart on h-t, well it was posted a while ago (4-5 years ago) about the short rams, cold air, TYPE-S, STOCK (both of these with k&n filters) and aem V2. well to make the story short the one who took the win was the aem V2 and followed by it was the STOCK intake with the k&n.
(this was done on a dyno, there were charts for each individual intake)

and that is why i rocked a k&n on my stock intake.
the type-s intake doesnt OUTPERFORM the stock as everyone praises it to do.

And that is exactly in the link I posed above in my first post. Very good info on that. I'm pretty sure that the cold air is the best when it is tuned. Any of them hardly make much of a difference.

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

ya, that dynograph in the q&a intake thread looks like that, but he didnt specially tune his car each time to each intake. you have to take that into account too. i dont see why honda would completely redesign an intake for their higher performing model for no reason

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

its an intake. it won't affect your performance that much. the cone filter would just give you a larger surface area for air to go through. the type s intake was meant to work on its own. like UPSluder said "the type s intake wasnt designed to work with a cone"

If anything just get a whole intake. It'll look nicer. that's about it. You can probably just buy a kit and put the filter on and swap out the piping later and see if you notice a difference.

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

ya, and as everyone else basically stated, if youre searching for big numbers in power, an intake isn't the best place to look

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

I know intakes don't give you a significant gain in power, but it does help your engine breathe better. Thank you all for your answers, i will be reconsidering alot of things.

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

I really think you're trying to out think the room. It won't "breathe" better. The amount of air taken in by the engine in directly controlled by the engine's vacuum created by the most basic properties of how a combustion engine works. Unless you actually have something restricting the flow of air to the throttle body (which dyno runs have proved the negligible difference between all of the above mentioned intake designs) then you're changing things simply to change things. Put a cone filter on the end of your intake if it works. And your result is a cone filter on the end of your intake. You're not breathing any differently unless you change your cams, bore, stroke, etc.

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

wow..so much hostility in PZ recently...you folks need to chill out..anyway back on topic::

that dyno in the Q&A intakes thread was posted by me over a year ago because some idiot tried to make a point about CAI's and cone filters being better for preludes than type s and stock intakes -

to answer your questions -(1) yes i had the car tuned to each type of filter and (2) a cone filter wont give you an increase in power so quit the bickering..

Re: stock intake w/ k&n cone

well one thing is for certain... it won't hurt anything to try it... as said, drop in K&N (and take out resonator) is probably the "better" option (pulls cooler air, I'd say). I had a K&N, but got a short ram when I swapped to h22.

we're pz and we should be friendly.
