I got a '98, and it's a daily driver. I don't plan on doing any other mods, except for exhaust down the road.

I don't race or anything, but I just want the added power if I need it.

Is all the talk about losing low-end torque because of other mods (h/e)?

Finally, would K&N be a better choice?

Thanx.

If you look carefully around the internet for independent comments and reviews you will find that none of the bolt-ons alone add power. However, if you were going to add a supercharger, turbo, NOS, or serious engine work those add-ons are required to get the most out of the engine.

I have known for many years the Braunings, of Brauning Motors - most victories ever in the Pro Stock naturally aspirated import, who race the Prelude engine in their drag car. They recommended only the addition of a K&N filter in the stock air intake. Since they develop 340HP to the ground from a naturally aspirated Prelude engine, I think they know what they are talking about.

If I do remove the resonator, will it sound ok with stock exhaust?

Whoa. How are they getting that kind of power from an N/A H22? I want one...

Get the AEM CAI. You'll get a little more high-end power, and your mileage will improve by about 1.5 mpg.

First, look at the "ntpog" website. What I did different was... removed the front passenger wheel. It made the job much easier. I also removed half the bolts and clips that hold the inner fender. That way, the inner fender panel simply falls down, assuming u removed the under splash shields as shown on the ntpog site. By doing this, you will have a good view of the resonator and it will just slide right out w/out bending the fender or any other difficulties whatsoever.

Now, to get at that bolt w/out taking off the sidemarker.. I spent about 15 minutes trying to do so. The head of the bolt is not visible but u can see the bolt threads where it screws into the resonator. You need a box end wrench which i did NOT have.(10mm i think..if u want the exact size, let me know..i'll get it tonight). You can feel your way around the bolt to take it off. W/out the proper wrench, I finally gave up and took off the sidemarker... a set of metric box ends will be my next tool purchase.

On the sound..if u remove the resonator and piping just after the butterfly valve, and leave the vacuum hose connected, the sound difference is mild. I did that at first. If u disconnect the vacuum line (& plug it), u get more air all the time. The growl sound was much more pronounced. I'll be adding a K&N soon..I think it will sound even better.
