Get a CAI, belive me it is MUCH more worth while then a SRI, AEM's a good company, but when it comes down to it, its a Shorter Verson of the K&N Typhoon for more $, even uses the same filter... , the Injens also a K&N Filter, but the pipes are a we bit wider, No matter what thouggh, get a CAI, SR is just not worth it

AEM is piece of crap. go for Injen or K&N.
I had bad experience with AEM, so did my accord-6th-gen friends (from accord forum)

1. stupid bracket breaks
2. on the version 1 CAI, the bottom keeps hitting the chasis.

Just have an impression that they just make sth without careful consideration.

Mugen > Injen/K&N > AEM

u wont void ur warrenty with CAI la .. ~ not even close .. ~
he cant prove it's relative to any issue .. they cant do anything abt it .. and there r acutally little things they can reffer to the CAI
i replaced the altenator + timming belt + altenator pully for free even i got the big bass intake and valve cover/spark plug cover .. ~ :D
well .. stimes Richmond Acura does act really nice .. ~

Lol, 604, Ive said this a dozen times before, and Ill say it again, you aint gonna Hydrolock unless u enjoy driving through a Lake at WOT, its just not gonna happen, there is Very little risk of Hydrolocking either of these Intakes, just ask your fellow Vancouverins w/ CAI, dont worry about it...In the Words of Nike "Just Do It" and buy the CAI, besides a Rear Sway Bar the CAI is a *Must*

Um, sry had to laugh at the earlier post, esp since it was Benz sayin it :p... A Cold Air Intake will NOT Void your Warrenty, not by a LONG SHOT, belive me u can get away with alot more then A CAI before u void it, if had my car in for acouple of problems (Blown Tranny, Tail light recal, Seat Slide) with quite a few mods (not to mention Honda Badges on the outside, one dealership i went to wasnt too happy about that, others dont seem to care) and they still fixed everything, Moral of the Story

***CAI = Good***

and Benz, 95%, Andy, Chillyn and Myself are Rockin the K&N Cold Air Intakes

There is another choice, Dude
HKS... Go ask moTSX for more info.

Mem.......i don't mean the WHOLE warranty.....i mean just the intake part. your intake warranty will be gone....

and you have NO IDEA how asshole our dealer is sometimes.... they can say that the engine broke down due to the intake..... and i SUCK at reasoning ....
believe me....some dealers can relate EVERYTHING to your mods.....and make it your fault, so they don't cover it!

exactly Ben!!!

i asked richmond acura...
they say wutever mod i put in...
warranty of that part is voided... + they won't touch my car for nething.. unless i change it back to stock...
so hafta pay 2 labour fees juz to test out wut was wrong wit my car =(

btw... for the people who put intake in... when vtech kicks in... does ur engine makes these weird noises?... cuz stock... its very quite when vtech kicks in ... but after i installed SRI... vtech + intake sounds like its gonna blow or something =) i brought it in to get checked... Acura says they can't check it for me since its after market part... but techniqician ensured me that its nth much... its increased air flow but juz check ^^

This is a question for Noel.

Sound definitely will be different from Stock. SRI is known for Louder than CAI, too.
Now is how you define "sounds like its gonna blow or something"
& you paid Acura to check it for you... :( You just went there & got rip :jester:
