if only gas was cheaper, i won't mind the mileage at all since we all know our hondas will keep running even after 999,999km!

okay I was looking at another post... someone help me with this... am I missing something here? I really dont' think the difference in gains are as high as they state.. and I really wanna see one of these in real life...

Topic: X's Intake FAQ

video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a8S_e2aO7lk

the dyno ran with the stock SI didn't even hit redline yet.. stock si went to 7800 rpm
then with the xfactor u guys ran it to a lil over 8 grand rpm
then the final si with the other mods on it ran to 8200 rpm..

rsx kpro owners will tell you that 8 - 9k rpm makes a world of difference on a k20a

are you sure you have 194 at the wheels? what kinda dyno are you guys using? because I'm pretty sure u don't hit 190 with intake and exhaust alone.. your bottleneck is still your header.. and even with intake, header and exhuast all done.. thats when you get 197 - 200whp...
and dude.. if you're going for performance.. I dunno if short ram is what you want... heatsoak is a big thing..

Francis, if u plan to track ur car i dont think the X intake is a good intake for track since it's core design is still a short ram. While it poses impressive dyno #s, it's real gain would differ as the engine bay gets hotter during track use. Heatsoak is still a prob.

I disagree... heatsoak is not a big deal once you get air moving. From a dead stop I definately notice heatsoak in the summer but at the track days I did not notice any bogging, power lag at all. Once you get the car moving heatsoak is really not an issue.

thx buddy, i keep that in mind. i just want an intake that won't have heatsoak and risk of hydrolock.

Sorry guys.. I really gotta disagree.. heatsoak is huge imo..

but anyway.. why are we spending so much time talking about intakes?! lol.. some people say they gain 15 hp with an intake.. some people say u won't feel a difference.. my car runs 197hp to the crank says honda canada.. and thats what I'll say... eventho I hv my **** intake and exhaust
