The dynos were in a huge "RSX Intake Shootout" article in SCC or Honda Tuning about a year ago; don't remember which. The Injen SRI had the best gains for a short-ram with 9 whp, and AEM had the best gain for a CAI, at 19 or 20 whp, with the DC Sports CAI right behind at about 18. No other bolt-ons were used. Hondata participated to make sure the ecus were properly reset.Iskra said:okay.. what jsut a minute... 9 WHEEL HP? Do you have a dyno to support this claim? 18 for a CAI??? I won't beleive it until I see some real numbers.
I've never heard of an intake producing that much power...are you sure the dynos aren't for I/H/E? That sounds much more beleivable.
Go CAI... I live in Canada and I drove with my CAI all year round, NEVER had a single problem. Admitadly, the filter is a bitch to clean, but honestly, you don't NEED to clean the filter more often about ~15000 miles (unless you are HARDCORE about performance). Every third time you change your oil just go to a mech and ask to do it right there.
If you're totally stock right now, a CAI is the single best engine mod you can do. Nice gains for low $$$. BUT if you plan on going bigger later on, plan it out... cuz your CAI won't fit on a turbo (hee hee).
