Got it monday, and just installed it yesterday :)












The growl is LOUD, but not that deep, or atleast not as deep as my old AV6 was =/

Huh, I guess my age is showing. :donno:

I'd get a mod that would decrease the noise, not increase it.
And the trouble is, I woulda done that when I was a kid too. :donno: :donno:

Way back last year, one of the things that made me pretty sure the TSX was the car I wanted was that some people were complaining about how quiet it was.

maybe im getting old too lol (i'm almost 20).

But im actually annoyed at the sound..
I'm kinda considering getting a comptech icebox now just because its quieter.. I just dont wanna lose the "niceness" of the car, if u kno what I mean..

but i really like how the look of the intake in the engine bay looks, thas actually one of the main reasons i got it hehe...

but the good thing is, during normal driving, you wont hear it AT ALL, only when u wanna hear it, u will.

I guess since there's not really THAT big of a difference in hp gains between a SRI and CAI, plus I thought the AEM short ram setup looked really nice in the engine bay :)

Thanks again :)

Do you guys think a CAI is a little quieter than a SR?

Thanks.

I"m looking for an intake that will make noise when i want it to, but when i do normal driving, its pretty close to stock noise.

i have the injen, and if you drive 'normal' u dont even notice that the intake is there. you'll notice the injen in two ways:
1. decreased low end power
2. if you go WOT, you'll hear it ;)

Yes, a long RAM aka CAI will always sound more quiet than a short RAM aka SRI because you won't hear much of the filter suction noise/sound with a long RAM compared to a short RAM.
