Question INTAKE?!?!?

Okay so, I'm looking into an intake. And as you may know there are tons to choose from. I've narrowed it down to the ones i want: Passwordjdm carbon fiber intake or the K&N FIPK intake. I'm just looking for some feedback on which one is better for the money, and which one will give you better horsepower gains, although I already know there is only so much you can get from a little intake. The passwordjdm is $999.99 and the k&n is $299.99. These intakes I know will not cause the car to loose any horsepower unlike some other ones on the market. Don't mention to me the j's racing or mugen intake, I am not dropping that kind of money for an intake lol. Some help and opinions would be great!


-Thanks

I have the K&N and it really improved throttle response and there is a hp gain as well. I had mine on the dyno before and after and as the top end wasn'thuge the gain appeared at vtec. I would definetly go K&N $1000 for a carbon intake thats under your hood it crazy!

I agree dry carbon is dam sexy but you have to draw the line sometimes. Most of us are no where even close to "F1 driver status" where dry carbon would make a difference so you want to spend your money on something that is going to give you the most noticable return.

Just my .2 cents. Now if I was rich I'd have dry carbon everthing...LOL

I researched legit dyno sheets for a week or two before buying my AEM V2 for like $275 shipped.

AEM V2, PW: JDM, J's Tsuchinoko, and K&N's all don't lose any power... seems that they all boosted mid-range a little bit.

I went with AEM because I like the design better, easier to apply my reflective heater duct insulation material to it as well.

To each his (or her) own though.

Thank you all for the posts! I'm going to go with the k&n. Only because its relatively cheap, and some time next year I am looking to go turbo. So spending $1000 on a cf intake for the time being would be rather dumb lol.

This is mine with a Skunk2 exhaust test pipe and the K&N. The second is my dyno with the exhaust and no intake (blue is stock and red is with the exhaust). You can also view the dyno sheet for the intake only on the K&N website.

Thanks I'm really excited Skunk2 is making a header to complete the exhaust which should make a difference also. I'm also thinking of getting their cams and an AEM next year.
