Re: Intake choice?

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 aftermarket 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 sometimes.
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.

JDM Prelude Type S Dynamic Air Intake Kit 220HP BB6 H22A S Spec



.................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .................................................. .....................................

When it comes to fuel economy the technology in the stock intake has you covered in a way that no aftermarket intake can. At low rpms, the stock intake acts to speed up the air flow which is best for low speed, fuel efficient operation.It does that by using 2 funnels, or velocity stacks as they are called ,and a valve that cuts off one of the air inputs to the air intake.

1: The air input to the intake goes thru a velocity stack that directs the air into the intake pipe in a orderly and efficient way that acts to speed up the air flow.Also this part of the air intake is in the bumper so the the intake can draw in cool dense air and so that the intake piping can be lengthened to the correct length for air tuning purposes.



2: Next the air goes down two air paths with one of those paths controlled by a valve .At low rpms a valve at the input to the air intake pipe closes one of two air paths to the rest of the intake piping. In the the same way that putting your thumb over a hose causes the water to speed up ,closing one of the intakes two air input passages acts to speed up the air flow which is ideal for efficient low rpm performance.Above around 3900 rpms. the air intake valve opens up given the engine a low resistance to air flow that the engine needs at mid/high rpms.



3: The air then travels thru a section of pipe and then thru another velocity stack to the air filter element.

4: Form the air filter and in the case of the Type S Intake thru another funnel and in the USDM intake just on a plane section of pipe and on to the throttle body.



5: At low rpms the throttle body when at cruising speeds is only partially open, which like the air valve at the entrance to the intake ,acts to speed up air flow in the same way.So in effect the valve at the input to the air filter is like a second throttle valve placed in a location where it can act to speed up the air flow.

Keeping the velocity and momentum of the air up as it goes thru the intake piping helps the engine to produce power in an efficient manner at low rpms which leads to lower fuel cost for the user.

In conclusion having a device that works to provide for what the engine needs be it low or high rpm operation is what the stock intake is good at and its hard to believe why anyone would want to replace it .

Re: Intake choice?

I'll be a bit shorter with my response. Get the Type S intake or an AEM V2.

'nuff said

Re: Intake choice?

How many intake threads do we need in this forum...

You know what I use? eBay short ram piping + K&N filter = Done. No I will not drop $300 on something with an AEM V2 sticker on it.

Re: Intake choice?

seriously way too many damn intake threads. either k&n your stock box or get a type s. get rid of the resonator too

Re: Intake choice?
