Checking out the stickies, it seems there are biased opinions about intakes, headers and removing the cat ! Now some folks say (in a virgina accent ;) )
"don't waste your time with an intake" If that's true, what about the X-Intake ? Does it really produce the ~10-13 WHP or not ? Headers are a waste of money because the stock unit is already high-flow and it's only by removing the cat that you see an increase in power ! Confusing here because of the dyno testing that was done with conflicting experience of other users.

So which is it ? I wanted to go with an X-Intake and a Race Header with fowler to keep the CEL from lightning up... then tie it all together with Hondata .. Hondata work with a X-Intake ?

No, i go to maryland a lot and drive through virginia. I was pulled over twice in that state, and i was just thinking about the cop saying, "no some folks don't..." Couldn't use a radar in that state :/

A header will make power even without removing the cat. Vibrant has a very nice header with high flow cat available if you care about the environment. I think that you would be very pleased with the X-intake (everyone who has one, loves it), Header with or without hfc, and a nice exhaust. Should be good for a nice increase in hp.
