I honestly don't know how to put up a video the vtec crossover isn't that loud but I don't care for the vtec crossover. Butttt it sounds real deep and it sounds a bit more aggressive and got rid of my sri whine which made me sound like I was building boost lol but now it's a rich deep tone across I like it it sounds a lot meaner I will post pics up with it finished and installed tomorrow in the morning.

Here it is it stopped intake whine and it's gone see noise now. Also it might be improving mpg I used to get 230 per tank lol so let's see what happens.

Yeah about 230 last tank and it's just about time to get a full up and it's sitting at 260 I'm guessing it has about 15-19 more miles on it the lights been on for awhile

So how many gallons does it let you fill up after that few miles? I mean if that's more than 10gal then that's less than 23-26mpg. The RSX should be 24/31mpg? I can't imagine your stock airbox would cause it to use so much fuel, but here's hoping, I guess

I was using a short ram intake so that's why I've been making the air box and yesterday I filled up and got 260 so 30 more then I did with the ram previously. I used to get 280 with the ram but I also used fuel additives to clean it. Now I added a fuel additive and filled it up hopefully I reach 300.

Was lookin for some custom intakes done on an RSX and stumbled upon this thread.

I've had an SRI, a couple CAIs, and eventually went back to a box for throttle response. Also tried to deal with IATs, which btw it's good the OP is lookin to help with IATs. It hits 110s in the summer where I live lol.

Here's where it draws it's air. It's just dryer hose from Lowes, there's better ($$) hose for this purpose available.



Goes to the stock airbox, didn't even gut it:



Upper hose is silicone, stock elbows kept ripping due to the RBC (outdated I know lol)



And like the OP's, I added insulation. Trying to be lowkey, I only did the bottom half-- I think most of the heat would come from the header anyway, but insulation the top would have been better. Maybe I'll do some gold tape some day.



Of course, there is still heat soak when sitting and the sensor itself sits inside the engine bay, but if it's in motion, IATs are within 10-15 of ambient.

Update on gas mileage got some Lucas fuel treatment and went on a 4 hour trip and I was going 80mph the majority of the time and got around 340 miles on a tank so that’s a good sign for me. I guess I wasn’t driving it far enough!

With rbc manifold and shut airbox did not fit or hold up lmao.my great friend ended up making me a 2.75in intake to a 3.5jn pipe with a velocity stack that was about 4inch to a 6inch filter it does sound crazy but it all looks so simple when you look at it

It was using a lot of fuel before time but before the time I got 280 per tank so far but I’ve been driving with a fucked up af ratio so we will see now how it is. I will post updates later. Here are pics.
