Just kidding. I see it as a "bearable Honda." :P On an unrelated note, if it'* one thing I can't stand is a coffee can exhaust that seems to amplify the exhaust noise. I know this kid with a '92 Prelude 2.3L (non-VTEC) with headers, fart can, "preformance distributor"
, and a chip. That thing is so god damn loud, I can hear his car over 3 blocks away when he accelerates. It really kills me. Like the 4" outlet is fooling anyone. I'm sure his 2.3L I4 flows enough air to take full advantage of that 4" outlet. It drives me
. Best part, he only ran a 16.05 at the strip, while my fat A$$ Park Avenue layed the smack down on his punk butt with a fantastic 15.9. I only relish (sp, the food?) in victory because he was so confidant he'd beat me.
I win. Once you go blown, you never go back. And that was with my stock air box, complete with tiny 2 1/2" inch inlet hole.
But, you don't have to worry about too much intake noise. The supercharger blocks most of the engine intake noise while emitting an nice whine that lets people know you mean business. Even an L36 (no supercharger) emits a nice deep, throty tone. One of my friend'* Bonneville shounds sweet with a CAI, very muscular. No VTEC in Detroit to screw up the sound of a motor.
