IMO. AEM is overpriced with its gain ~
go for Injen or K&N CAI(both can be set up in SR mode) for the best bang for the buck and add a bypass if u worry abt the hydrolock .. ~ :cool:

Chyllin, Few Things Here, First off go w/ the CAI... Short Rams Practiclly useless, you really want to have the CAI...

Also the Bypass Valve is Worthless as well, It attcually takes away Horsepower I have had my CAI on in the snow, in bad rain storms, ect, your not gonna Hydrolock the TSX Engine unless you Drive Through a Lake WOT...

Fellow New Yorker Here, Hydrolock really shouldnt be an Issue, Of Course if your that Worried get the Bypass...

Anyway The CAI is totally worth while, forget the Short Ram

Heres the Website I brought It from, there probibly one of the Cheapest out there,

Injens supost to be really good too, I personally Have No Experence w/ it, the other thing I like alot about The K&N is it comes with a Filter Wrap, thats supost to help protect it from Hydrolock

Yeah Mines the Typhoon, Typhoon is a differnt kinda Filter then the Regular K&N SR or something like that, spins the air better, i dont know the exact details, but its a great Intake, So Is Injen its really ur decision, there about equal, the Injen may have 1 or 2 hp over the K&N, and is much more popular w/ TSX owners, However Im more then Happy w/ My K&N and get alot of complements over it, Really Great Intake Im Very Happy w/ it, The K&N also may be cheaper, and no matter what I highly Recomend that Link I gave you before, whichever is your decision
