Review 2 of 119

Price Paid:  $98.00 from Advanced Autoparts

Year / Model Reviewed:
1996 Acura Integra RS

Strengths:
-Immediate throttle response
-Small horsepower increase to a stock car, but the more air/fuel mods that are done, the more the intake becomes effective.
-Easy installation. (CAI requires the removal of that damn noise box)
-Good alternative to a CAI 3 times the money
-Noticable gas milage increase IF you don't drive a fool all the time.

Weaknesses:
-Engine noise is definitely evident now. Its nice to hear the engine roar sometimes, but I don't need it every single time i have to down shift/pass someone.
-For a pipe and conical filter, $50 would have been acceptable.

Summary:
If any of you are familiar with DC2 integra, then you know about the rediculous stock intake setup and why the noise cancellation box is there. In through the fender, into the noise canceling box deal, then the actual airbox, plastic piping, and finally the intake manifold. I bought my intake from the local autoparts store just out of convienience. It took a little over an hour to get on since the bolts were rusted on the stock intake, so i had to drown the sucker in some wd40. it only took basic hand tools to do.
This was the first mod i did to the car in the first month i had it. Aggresive driving with the stock intake i could get 2nd gear to chirp pretty good. Just punching the throttle during highway cruizing and it lags. Once the intake was on, it was like the car awakened. I can go through the gears and get 2nd and 3rd to chirp. 4th and 5th pull hella hard now. Punching it in highway cruizing and i actually sink back in my seat. At idle, it sounds stock, nothing special at all. Just cruizing, and you still maybe able to hear the intake, depending at what RPM. Just mash the throttle, and you will be noticed. Noise wise, comparable to exhaust.

Review 3 of 119

Price Paid:  $10999.00 from www.performancecente

Year / Model Reviewed:
1996 Honda Accord Special Edition

Strengths:
Better acceleration,
Better fuel mileage,
Looks really nice under hood,
Nice sound at 2500+ rpms,
No fear of hydrolock.

Weaknesses:
Instructions were hard to understand, download the instructions for a K&N cold air if you want better ones; really tight fit under hood, the filter rests against the back of my headlight.

Summary:
First off what I paid for this was a steal. It was $109.99 with free S&H. I'd recommend performancecenter.com to anyone.
This is my second mod to my honda and probably the one I'm most happy with. It took me about 40 minutes to pull the stock intake out and put the short ram in, but that's just because I took the resinator out too and was very careful with what I was doing. I recommend pulling the stock resinator out just to get some cold air in there, I felt a difference once I did. No power loss low end with the resinator out and mid to high end kicks really nice. It sounds stock under 2500 rpms, and has a real nice howling sound at aroud 4000. I gained probably around 5 - 7 hp and add that to my flowmaster cat-back my honda's pushing 140+ hp (130 stock). I'd say AEM is the best short ram on the market and highly recommend it.
