    15-20 hp gain to the wheels from just a cold air intake.... on a 4 cylinder:bowdown:

    Hondas K series engines>>> any 4 cylinder

    Wrong, a Supra TT has been published with a 26hp gain from a simple cone filter install.

    And let's not even talk about the turbodiesel heavy duty trucks.

    the engine does respond well, I've seen that it depends on what order you put the mods on. Some folks got around 8-10 from the Injen CAI. 15 was reported and dyno'd but not 20. I got 20 total from CAI and Exhaust on mine. The K-series is great engine for those who like to tune and see results. For a performance daily driver, the RSX is great.

    I think that an RSX with about 250hp and maybe AWD would be a decent car. But not with Wrong Wheel Drive.
     
  12. Man all it took was boost? :hsugh:

    Diesels have the worst SOP gain from intakes. But they do help alot with reducing lag and EGTs.

    We got a guy over here like that. Went N/A now looking at like 400+ whp boosted.

    I'm running mid 13s on 9psi, stock internals and 2in exhaust (its the next upgrade!)

    to tell you the truth, i would rather have FWD than AWD, maybe its just me and i dont like 30% horsepower loss from just the drivetrain... eat more gas, lose to RWD or FWD on top end... make the car heavier... and have to baby the clutch everytime i want to drop it from 3000RPM or risk the chance of breaking the tranny.....

    it just means it has a very restrictive stock intake. the b-series on the other hand gained a few whp at best with a cai because the stocker was designed well. or so i think.
