they r hot on NHBP! i made an "x intake" for my SRI...like it a lot and it can be done for a lot less than other aftermarket SRI's. I had a fujita SRI for a bit, i liked it, but i liked the x more.

i think i want a k&n one i like the idea of it hooking up to the existing oem intake to cool down the air and yeah if i find the badges for a cheaper price ill do them before the intake if not then ill save up a hundred bucks after

1. uses the apexi filter...which has been shown to have better filtration than other after market filters (even K&N), and its a dry filter. over time oil from an oiled filter (like k&n, injen, etc) can gather on the MAF (mass airflow sensor) making it dirty. this can eventually throw off the sensor's ability to read airflow (but this takes a decent amount of time).

2. it looks more OEM but has a touch of aftermarket to it due to the visible cone filter.

3. keeps the OEM MAF housing with the vanes, allowing it to keep proper AFR (air fuel ratio...not too lean, not to rich) which is promotes long term engine health

4. great SRI "suction" sound... scares in vtec, but no "pingy-ness" from metal tubing....like with my fujita (yay, im a little picky)

5. i noticed some minor improvement of throttle response

6. i love making stuff myself!
