i noticed when I swapped out the short ram for a cai, that the short ram would be a lot louder than the cai, especially when in VTEC :bigthumb:

Its partly because the short ram is in the engine compartment and the CAI has the filter on the ground, on the other side of the car.

If you stand outside the car, on the passenger side, and have someone revv the car, they sound just about the same, with the CAI being a slightly lower tone.

I never realized how loud my SR intake was untill I put my stock one on for a while. A short ram realy talks around vtec, and you can hear it suck when you blip the throttle.

Short ram is louder than CAI. But the CAI gives you a bit more gain. Minor trade-off, hehe.

na, removing the resonator doesn't compare to a real intake...

i put a stock airbox in mine w/o the resonator and it wasn't as loud

No, but its hella louder than with the resonator. I had this for awhile. Just the resonator is much deeper than a CAI, but the CAI is definitely louder at VTEC. I love it. :cool:
