I believe it is alot more durable and..shit it's stainless steel, other than that I think it's the same performance gain wise..

Cold Air Intakes can cause hydrolock if too much water comes in contact with the airfilter, what if you were to put a cloth water repellent shield over the filter to keep a lot more water out of the air filter. Injen makes some of these covers. what do you think about the cover: yes, no, or good idea???

you aren't going to hydrolock...the filter has to be submerged for it to actually happen...don't drive through any lakes and you'll be fine

Actually, Injen makes a Hydro Shield that goes over your filter, I believe someone made a review on it.

the only reason i am asking about the hyrdo shield is because the other day we caught a real bad rain and the streets were really flooded and i need to get somewhere. my car wasn't drowning but there was a lot of water. i was just wondering if i were to get it, would it block some of the air being taken in messing with the intakes operation?

can you put a type-s or type-r intake manifold on a base rsx?????? and also, are the skunk 2 coilovers better than others or are you just paying for the name?????
yes you can, you would need a k-pro to tune and the type s or type r TB, or any:dontknow: , search the threads for a review on skunk2's coilovers, i dont really know anything about them.

Not worth putting a manifold on the base motors. Skunk2 coilovers are rubbish if I recall correctly....
