an intake wont make your car selfdestruct lol
its just a pipe with a filter on it, most do nothing really, other than make sweet noises. thats probably just good ol vtec stirrin up some fun on ya, youll get used to it, my K&N intake does something similar, remember stoich? 14.7:1? yeah so uh imagine all the air in your room like shoved into a cylinder about .55L in size, thats alot of air! thats just naturally vtec sucking away

mines being held on by a bracket because the damn thing cost me nearly 200 bucks! its not really gonna go anywhere, keep an eye on it and see what happens, you will probably have to periodically tighten the clamps more so then i will. check it every month or so or make sure everything checks everytime you pop the hood. its really not worth your trouble to get one welded on or anything, just an intake :thumbsup:

i installed my short ram last summer.. and from the day i put it on to now its a lot louder than stock.. i think most of the noise is just from the air flow and motor.. just make sure everything is tightened and there arent any gaps or spaces where there shouldnt be any..

good luck.

I put a cold air on mine and it sounds a lot louder too...I thought it was my valves making more noise but I thinks it just more engine noise coming out of the intake like they said before and more air being sucked in. You can really here mine around 4-5 when you left off the gas and the motor is still wound up. Sounds pretty mean lol...
