Re: air intake

You can just get a K&N filter to replace the airbox for starters - if you're looking to save money. (i'm not too sure how well the mounting of the K&N filter is on the stock tube since I do not have mine to test)

From there you could go for a full Cold air (just be careful when it rains or around water)

Or get an AEM v2 - expensive
Type S intake - no noise and still an improvement from stock


You can't really go wrong with any of he 3 listed options. It's personal preference really.

Re: air intake

OR, instead of "replacing the box " you could just put in a K&N drop in and be good to go

Re: air intake

it really all depends on what you want man the best thing you can do is research what your looking for start with companys that you know make intakes visit there websites and read up on their products. search the forum for threads cause your not the first person that wanted to know this im sure. There are many brands of intakes like Injen, AEM, Weapon R, K&N of course.

Re: air intake

I have the type s. it's great. k&n drop ins are the best bang for your buck. the v2 is equally as good. any of those 3 you'll be fine

Re: air intake

The K&N drop in is your best bet, unless you're willing to buy the Type-S intake (around $300) to gain a miniscule amount of power.

Please consider these points before you waste your money.

1: Your stock intake is a CAI intake .
2:When you consider that a 4cyl engine only has 1 intake runner demanding air at any time combined with the fact that the air intake piping is much larger then any single runner , the stock intake is not restrictive.Some types of intakes can effect the tuning of the engine by raising the engines power band somewhat given a little more top end power at the expense of mid/low rpm torque and throttle response. This is not a good trade off when you have a 4cyl engine trying to move a 3000 lb car.
3:You can somewhat improve throttle response and thus improve mid rpm power by getting a OEM TYPE S intake that uses a 2nd air box just before the throttle body to influence the tunning of the engine air pulses in a positive way. Also when accelerating hard , if you only hold the accelerator pedal down 3/4 to 4/5 of the way until the VTEC engages that also seems to give a boost to mid rpm power.
4:The stock intake has a valve at its input that gives the ecu the ability to tweak the intakes response an effectively tune the intake for the range of rpms your operating at which helps a lot with low/mid rpm power and fuel economy. .No aftermarket intake does that.
5: For a sound that has a lower pitch while not turning your intake into cop
bait, all you need to do is plug the passageway leading to the resonator box thats below the air filter box. Just temporally remove the funnel at the bottom of the air filter box and look down the hole in the bottom to see what needs to be plugged.

Check out this write up below from a UK web site.





Here is where you can get a TYPES S INTAKE.

Re: air intake

In my opinion, changing your air intake to a fancy cold air intake or short ram intake is pointless and costly. If you want the cool sound, you could drop $300 for AEM brand or $50 for an eBay one with a K&N filter. Either way, you won't notice any gain in power so why bother.

If I had a choice (because my car came with a short ram intake) I'd leave it stock and just have a decent filter.

Thats just my 2 cents...
