R18 fg1 sri?

Hey guys just need a quick opinion. Debating whether I should get an Sri for my r18 auto. If I do this will I lose low end power ? I know there will be no gains at all but is it even worth it? there isn't much you can do with an auto so I'm just trying to make the best out of it. Planning to get either an injen, dc sports, or Fujita.

Here's someone dynoing a CAI vs a SRI

You won't loose power, but you're likely gaining a couple whp over stock, maybe?

Yeah I think Itll have a little gain but I've read that for Si's installing an Sri can make you lose power. Think it's the same for a regular civic?

Si's place their SRI right beside the header in the back of the engine bay, which isn't an optimal location

R18's don't do that, if I recall correctly

No worth putting an intake on the r18.

Thing is I need opinions on what I should do next. I got my wheels done, an exhaust, and tints, just need help on what to do next. My options are an intake, fog lights, or a lip kit.

IMO i'd go with the lip kit or fog lights. They improve the look of the car dramatically and will instantly be noticed. Performance mods on the R18 aren't really worthwhile..you're driving a car meant for gas mileage, not performance. Just my $0.02. Good luck!

Foglights and lip kit is a nice upgrade. Please dont put an exhaust on an automatic civic.

Thanks for the input man. Yeah definitely is clearer now that performance mods for an r18 is no good. Although I'm thinking of doing an intake resonator delete with a k&n drop in. Good idea or no?

It is actually good. Never had a problem with it. It's not like any other cai that the filter goes behind the bumper. It has a shield and the resonator is still basically attached to the k&n shield that acts as the cai for it. (someone correct me if I'm wrong) but that is how I have it. The filter is attached just as you would a Sri except with a heat shield.

That's good man. Thing is I have A/T so it wouldn't show as much gains as I could risk my throttle response. I wanna try the intake resonator delete, ever heard of it?
