What intake do you suggest for an 05 TSX? I would like good performance and a nice sound if possible. My friend has a maxima, and when he stomps on the gas the intake ROARS to life. Anything like that for the TSX?

- Higher fuel consumption.
- Filter requires more maintenance.
- Possible to hydrolock engine.

Of course, all this is subject to driving method, distance and weather conditions. How you intepreted whether if it's a worthy modification or not will be entirely up to how you take it.

but... in order to hydro lock the engine, i guess u need the filter to be at least 1/4 submerged into water. The lowest point of the filter is around the center of the wheel. So, I am assuming u need to go into water that is AT LEAST 15" deep in order to hydro lock the engine... LOL man... why would u drive over a 40cm deep water when u see it, and stay in the water, and hit the throttle????

the stock inlet is actually beside the headlight... so u need to submerge the whole bumper before it will hydrolock with the stock setting. :laugh:

btw, another negative I say would be the loss of torque below 2000-3000 rpm...

Does the K/N intake work?It doesnt go down to the wheel, it sits next to th emotor, next to the fender. Kind of lik ethe stock one, bu allows mUCH better air flow

are u talking about Short ram? hmm... in general CAI should give u more gain b/c it is taking in cold air (supposedly). Depends on where u live tho. Vtec.net has done experiment before on TSX showing when the car is actually moving, the air being sucked in by SR is not that hot. temp was closed to the enviorment.

Hydrolocking can happen even without being submerged, when the filter is damp enough and there is enough volume of water being sucked up ... That can still happen. Don't be under the impression that only level determination is the only way of engine failure.

There are other options, Mugen CF intake, GruppeM CF intake. These will not be so easily prone to hydrolock. While the OEM airbox will not hydrolock because there is a bypass/drain to prevent this from happening in 99% of the cases.

if you want a CAI and want to avoid any hydrolocking, you can get a bypass for it...
