Lol yeah, I put mine back and its quiet and not a drop slower, I think the reason it seamed faster to switch the other way was just a placebo from the extra noise.

My buddys civic and mine pull the exact same off the line (like a couple of toyota echos) but his car feels way faster to be in cause his loud *** exaust and his intake.

I think it pulls harder with stock rather than after market....Maybe its just me. The SRI seemed to lag in the lower rpms.

Im considering an AEM SRI solely for the nicer sound. I hate the stock whine of the engine at higher rpms and would like some dignity back. im probably going to grab one off a member here and paint it black with high temp paint cause i hate flashy pipes.

The gain/loss is so insignificant there's no reason not to put a SRI or CAI in. It's not like our cars pull hard anyways, and it sounds so much better.

ncirom2003 will become famous soon enough
ive been contemplating getting a cai or leaving stock, i dont want a sri..........
the only problem is i have a 1 piece spoon strut bar that is worht more to me than putting in a intake cus id have to remove it, so im not sure if i should stay stock or try and put half of a cai onto the box on the throttle body, or maybe just buy a new strut bar and the whole k&n cai........ im lost on it all but im getting an rsr exhaust and want a subtle tone like you hear from a g35 or something stock so i figure stock intake will help me get that

My v2 broke also! And I did that same! But then I got an intake from ebay for 30 bucks! DO IT! CAI! Its awesome. I think the ebay member was bombeffect. Honestly the product is quality.

I couldn't deal with the stock intake being installed again.. It felt soo slow.

But now that I think of it... That may only be because I forgot to put the IAT sensor back into the intake.

a heat sheilded short ram (ie k&n or custom heat sheild) is way better than that horrid stock labyrenth of noise canceling restricted airflow that is the stock airbox(s). the engine breathes so much more free, regardles of not gaining hp, you can definatly tell its quicker to rev and probly gives you 1 or 2 hp/mpg so why not. the full CAI lose low end on all applications ive seen, i wouldnt run one, + i live in florida and would swamp it in a week.

I did before my turbo, I tried a couple intakes, and the airbox was probably faster than most. But my intake now is fine. but thats cuz it goes to the turbo inlet. lol.

Stuck on your stock box if you want to take off fast, people use aftermarket intake for the high rev and speed.

Yeah...I put my stock back on. I had a Injen short ram. It sounded nice but after I put stock back on it felt a little quicker...most of all quiet. I may just start using it in the winter with the cold outside air...it seems to love cold air..Don't waist your money

stock is actually a great intake. i've been through aem sri and K&N fipk and went back to stock each time. But now I'm keeping the K&N typhoon because it makes more torque than stock on average and isn't noisy until after 4k or if you stomp on it.
