Default just installed injen intake

Install was pretty straight forward. You do need to remove the battery in order to get it to fit. Don't really feel a difference on the street, but on the freeway throttle responce is excellent and it does seem a little a faster. And you get that nice rumble of the air being sucked up by the motor. Sure does sound like a RSX now.

KOMPLEX,

A cat-back exhaust system will definitely compliment the Air Intake.

yeah im not sure why they didn't mention removing the battery its not like its a big deal to do. Of course if you had the front bumper off (as they did in the instructions) you probobly wouldn't think of the battery removal as necessary

That was also the first time i noticed we had panasonic batteries in the car, kinda cool.

True that. They need to put that in the install directions. Or they can just tell us to remove the bumper.

"Wow all you have do is take off the bumper?!?!, I never knew installing a intake could be so easy"

No prob. Now if we agree that the little injen sticker is worth 5whp i wonder what the huge modacar.com windshield banner is worth?? hmmmm

I did some hard driving last night, and I really can't tell a difference on the street til mid way through 3rd gear. It just sounds like the motor is breathing better, and that it's using a lot of gas.. Well there goes my fuel economy. At freeway speeds, uhmm i mean on the freeway I did notice a difference however. Just wierd flooring it and not getting a strong pull. It sorta like its rolling downhill and gets faster and faster. Oh well, I could never fit all 4 wheels and all four tires all in seperate packaging in my other car anyways. :D

KOMPLEX - You're just used to a fast turbo car like your modified 400 WHP Eclipse that you don't see the difference on the xB with an intake. I think your body is used to that G-force you get when flooring your other car.
