    I'm about to purchase the Injen CAI and going to keep it as the short ram instead because of climate reasons of where I live. The question is, is it really necessary to take out the resonator box if i'm only going to keep it as the short ram option?

    *Noobie warning!* :ohsnap: I just got my 2009 Acura TSX (tech) and I love it except for when I cold start in in the morning. It goes "tick, tick, tick, start, and then SCREECH!" I've taken over to the Acura dealer twice now but it never recreates the noise. It's under warranty for a while...

    When I'm crusing, 50mph+ I hear a whiling noise when I accelerate. I'm confused. I wonder if any of you guys/girls have heard of this noise? It drove me nuts on the drive from NJ to FL. All I got in the car is a K&N filter. I did loose a screw but it's pretty damn secure I gotta say. Any...
