Not yet, you think I should? I think it is actually messing up air flow because the screen is dented in. Any performance gains I can gain by doing this?

you will probably have better high RPM response. I am planning on doing this once I cash my tax refund and finals are done

It helps a lot with response. Makes it even louder. If you can, try to pull it with a ring plier. Makes it a 20 second job, with little chance of damaging it.

Well I pulled it, using a strait blade. Really simple, and didnt brake anything. Wiped out the TB while I had the chance, there was some black gunk in there. Started it up and roared like a ****, then calmed down. Took if for a drive and everything checked out ok. Does the computer need time to adjust to these settings or can I expect a change next time I drive it? I just took it around the block and didnt have a chance to get up to high speeds or anything.The screen was a mess, had two dents and a hole in it. Geeze, makes me wonder what the previos owner did to it

Yea you can add a new intake. Try DomesticPerformance, they got some stuff you might be interested in. As far as the exact honda pipe the 92-99 guys use, I dont think it will work on the new models, but I am exactly not sure so dont take my word.
