Intake Help

Hi im new to this site and i just bought my 07 accord v6 coupe 3 weeks ago and was gonna get an intake. First i was thinking of doing a drop in as i live in houston, tx and was scared to suck up water from the big puddles we get after some rain. But then i found a solution "intake bypass valve"

1) i wanted to put in a bypass valve and was wondering where would that go?
If i put it before the intake pipe will the intake fit fine or do i have to cut intake in the middle somewhere and make it fit?

2) Is there much difference performance wise if i get one of the following intakes instead of a aem v2, as i dont need carb#, if not which one of the following should i get.

Thanks guys. Also if anyone has a DIY for intake installation it would help alot.

If your thinking of the bypass valve I'd go with either the AEM or the K&N. I prefer the K&N since it can be converted to a short ram intake for bad weather while I haven't seen that advertised in other intakes. The quality on the K&N is also very good.

You can not put the bypass valve on the aem v2. Since you are worried about water I would go with the K&N. There really isnt too much performance difference between the main brand intakes. The V2 has the deapest sound but in your case since you are afraid of hydrolocking then take that out of the equation. I would go with the K&N. I had it and was very happy. I changed to the V2 and didnt notice much of a difference besides sound. You will love your car once you get a intake. Vtec sounds sweet. Just gonna be hard keeping it out of vtec. haha.

I personally would not buy that ebay crap. Main brand intakes are tested and machined for our cars.

Yeah I would go with the K&N Typhoon because you can convert it to an SRI.

Also if you get it from a reputable dealer if you have an issue it'll get resolved quickly. I had one on my 06 civic before I traded it in. Great product better than most other intakes due to K&Ns attention to detail; it came with a new heat shield to protect the filter on that model. I'd only expect the same cool innovation.

I'm happy with my K&N Typhoon CAI as well. Got it brand new on ebay for $200 shipped about a year ago.

I just installed my BOMZ short ram intake that i got off of ebay... for like $40... and am very happy with the results.... great sound and better throttle response. plus being a short ram i wont EVER have to worry about hydrolocking.

The only issue I have with those short ram versions is heat. On hot summer days its not going to pull much cold air into the engine. There are so many models of inexpensive short ram intakes out there but none of them are really giving cold air at all times. We really need one with a heat shield that to seal off most of the ambient heat from the engine so the air getting pulled in is colder than the engine compartment.

Regardless if it does pull in hot air or not... its still going to be better than the restrictive stock air box.... and DEFINITELY going to sound MUCH MUCH better.

Hey Cman

My post wasn't to knock your choice on parts but to point out the other side of things in general between CAI and short ram air.

Thanks alot guys for the posts....all of you guys have great points....i guess it comes down to what you're really willing to spend on the intake. I guess it comes down to the K&N typhoon (which can covert to SRI) or the bomb racing SRI (which i didn't even know it existed). Regradless of which one i get they both will most likely be used as SRI so will def look into an heatshield and maybe even heatwrap the intake.

the sound is proven to make gas milage decrease.

haha i know. I was just saying. If you like hearing the sound, gas mileages goes down with it.

Whats the point of MODDING unless you get some use out of it/hear the results

Thats the funnest part of modding.... testing it out after the install .... the following few tanks of gas always go quick :P

Anyone know of any replacement numbers for either the AEM conefilter for the [email protected] or a K&N cone filter that you could use on the V2. I'm thinking about ordering to have a replacement around and cycle between the 2 when one is being cleaned. Anyone? I tried the search but I lost my patience. Thanks

Not 100% sure about that claim. On one indepent run, the SRI might outperform (heck, on a single independent run an SRI often outperforms a CAI) - however, due to heat soak and bogging, after sitting in traffic or doing repeated runs SRI's have shown to lose power on some applications. And remember, on the V6 the stock airbox has a "snorkle" type device that pulls air from down low, so it actually is getting a dose of cooler outside air.
