Yeah but, the noise is a great note, and the car is noticeably doing better. With the stock intake it was bogging down. With the short ram it is doing a lot betterThat intake will do nothing but make noise and suck in hot air...
What did you think was going to happen?
I'm not even sure why this was thought of as a good idea.
It’s not hot air, it’s cooler air than the black (which absorbs heat) plastic (which insulates pretty well) air box and has less resistance so the throttle body gets cooler air flowing easier making the car a little bit perkier, not and extreme amount, but it does better than it did, being that it had 150k miles on it.I doubt the intake Honda researched and installed on the car was making the car "bog down".
What better for a motor than hot air......
Put a heat guard and planning to do a hood vent later on.
I could always grab extra piping but I understandSounds like you're backpedaling........
You'd be lucky and I'd be surprised if you saw more than a 3-4 hp gain with that "mod".
If you have to spend money on an intake, at least put it into an actual CAI that reaches low to grab actual cool air.
I suppose the saving grace with an aftermarket intake is you can just clean your filter instead of replacing it.
