I switched back to the factory intake because it just made sense in my application. The 3" intake and K&N filter were fun for angry VTEC noises, but the non-stop whistling and horrible heatsoak it suffered from made it counterproductive; not to mention the piss-poor filtering that the K&N filter offered. Every single thread I could dig up comparing intakes (both short ram and cold air intakes) were actually worse or only very slightly better (1-2hp) than stock.this is a thread revival!!! but i like it. Car is looking neat!
why did you switch back to the OEM intake tube? Header looks great!
give us more updates as they happen!
