any suggestions???

Hey guys i was just wondering if anyone had any suggestions on an intake. I've been looking at injen and aem cai & sra. Also i was thinking about a throttle body spacer i've heard they help with throttle response and gas mileage. Thanks and i appreciate any suggestions.

An intake is an intake bro. There's no sense in spending 200 bucks on an intake that does excatly the same thing as a 20$ intake. I had a COI and a short ram. I personally like the short ram better because i feel a little better throttle response and lil more torque bottom end. I also have the throttle body spacer. I didn't really notice a difference except a little better gas mileage.

I agree with this, though only to an extent.

The reason why a Boma intake off ebay costs $50 and a Type S intake goes for hundreds is that Honda did a lot of R&D work. The reason I bought one is because every single person I've read post about them has said the exact same thing. Whereas with ebay CAI/SRI purchases get varied results.

Same with an AEM for example. They say that it will increase performance here, here and here, and when bolted on, they behave exactly the same way.

But at the end of it all, it won't make that much difference anyway, maybe 5kw higher or lower at the end of it, so it will come down to what you want/can afford.
