The CAI will increase the intake noise, even more so at WOT. The gas millage will not be effected by the intake, but will be by your led foot (when you experience how much fun it is to drive your TSX with these two bolt ons) :nod: :D

I got cai and dc header, i set off car alarms with the noise.
seriously? hmmm..is it due to the header or the CAI? cause I want the performance, but I don't want the noise...

btw, can anyone else recommend something else that would increase the power of my TSX? nothing drastic though..cause perferrably, I dont' want to mess up my warranty too much.

So far, this is what I know of that will increase power:
CAI, Sports header, grounding kit, voltage stabilizer...anything else?

You can get just about everything you want but exhaust. because if you just keep that bad boy under 3500 rpm,it wont have that obnoxious noise you are thinking of.

BY OBNOXIOUS i mean the noise can be good to some people, and bad to others.

My guess would be Wide Open Throttle. Basically if you presse the pedal to the floor you will hear the intake screaming.

Triz,
I've had my header for only a week now. No problems yet, but should I worry that I might have problems later on?
