supp guysss. have an 08 habbi sedan. 100% stock about 17 k miles on it and i need some help.


im not sure which intake to go with, so maybe u guys can help me decide.

idea 1: crv intake tube, with a blox velocitystack with filter. cutting the factory airbox, kinda like the x intake.

idea 2: just get a ebay cold air and replace the hoses and filter

idea 3: just leave the stock airbox

which would yeild more power?

oh also is there anyone that has any pics of their sedan lowered on the hfp suspension?

any help would be appreciated. :corona::deadhorse:

I bought an ebay CAI and it was garbage... Had to cut it shorter to make it fit and then widen the hole for the MAF so that would fit into it. On top of all that it absolutely killed my gas mileage. I ended up tearing it out and replacing it with a K&N intake and havent looked back.

im just kinda confused on how everyone praises the "x" intake and claim crazy gains , but the filter is like 10 inches away from the hot as hell header. hmm

its not really not having enough money being the problem, its just not wanting to waste money, id rather spend it.

well i can do the x intake by myself and not spend much money at all , but im just not understanding how it could outperform the stock one.

im not into the whole x intake thing im more of a named brand guy that knows what it does and such as that,but the other guy is right a intake doesnt do much unless you have other basic mods it will just make it sounds louder for the mean time.
