Installed my V2

I installed my V2 today- took between 2.5-3 hours if you don't count the breaks.

Don't really have much to add but wanted to let everyone know

Oh- make sure you get the IAT sensor which is facing you when you're standing in front of the car and not the sensor on top of the throttle body. I accidently took the top one and couldn't figure out why the hex bolt didn't fit Then started the car with my friends thumb over the whole and it wasn't pretty- car wouldn't idle- jumped from 500-1100ish and back.

So if this happens you have the wrong sensor!

I only drove it for about 10 minutes so not many power impressions- the sound is freaking sweet though. I'm not a huge fan of that "chhhhhnnkkk" sound when you hit the gas right away, but I guess that's the air rushing in.

So far so good...

i dont understand it but sometimes when i let out the clutch on 1st i get a clickk clickk chk noise from the intake. But sometimes when i let off at like 1300+ rpms i dont get the noise. Am i being too lite on the clutch? If i give it some gas and let off on the clutch it sounds normal. I think the intake just needs alittle air before take off. No idea

Hey Lil Tane....Do you have a 6-speed as well? What your take on ur V2 performance wise? Seems like most 6-speed people dont notice much gain

I have a 5-speed AUTO

Honestly, I'm happy with the V2. Maybe(just maybe) I lost a little on the low-end, the car seem just as quick if not just a tad bit quicker(not like i'd notice it really), I never really push my car to the limit so I can't tell you about the gains on the high-end.

...but the sound is really deceiving, it makes you think the car is faster than before

Well I'm loving the sound- sounds like it's going to swallow other cars alive.

There has to be more power because my tires are spinning more through first and second... I need new tires...

What RPM range is the sound of the V2 the loudest?

BTW, it could be that your tires may be starting to wear that you're experiencing less traction. How much mileage does your car have?

I have about 8500 miles- but I drive aggresively and I just did 12 runs at the drag strip three weeks ago The traction issue is because the stock tires suck. Once I get some grippy tires I'll be much better off.

It doesn't sound much different from idle-3k or so- then it gets louder and deeper, and at VTEC it starts a deep screaming. I love it!

Congrats.

Hope you get to the track again soon. It would be interesting to compare your before and after times with the V2

Thanks for reply I may just go with the injen then. I read people noticing more low torque gains....which is wat this car needs

either one you choose, you'll be happy. Honestly, the low-end w/ the V2 is probably the same or more, i really doubt i lost, but i'm not sure.

go for whichever one you can get cheaper i guess.

Do you have aftermarket exhaust? Run premium gas?

nope, stock exhaust and 87 octane gas. I'm low on money, can't afford premium.

unrealcpu, it might be that it's hitting the frame, mine does that sometimes, especially when I let the clutch out and not enough gas.

And also, when I installed mine back in January or Feb or whatever, I left all the sensors alone, it comes with a rubber gasket and a bolt to close that sensor hole you guys are talking about, and mine works fine. When it stops raining, I might try to put it in there to see what difference it makes, probably nothing. You might want to try plugging that hole back up and putting the sensor back in the same place.

In other words you have no clue.


This is what DYNOING is for.

Read what I said, I didn't say for a FACT that I gained or lost, and read my post before that.

I know DYNO is the only way to prove if there is a gain or lost, which is why I didn't say it was for sure, I was just telling him my personal experience.

Until someone actually does an independent dyno, personal experiences are all we can go by.

If I said, YES FOR SURE I GAINED ATLEAST 5-10 HP, then that's one thing.

Yeah sometimes it vibrates and sometimes it doesnt . I think it has something to do with the throttle and air going into the intake.
No idea. I plugged up my old hole and put the iat sensor in the cai where its supposed to be.

The car runs great though/

I am installing my dual tanabe exhaust next weekend along with my phillips HID kit

After all this i think the only thing left to do for the summer is install some tein or comptech springs. Oh and the front lip

mmm good question, I'm extremely busy with school and work and then I'm off for vacation- it's looking like middle-end of June is the earliest time I'll be able to make it out there next, I'd love to have new tires/rims by then as well...

Does it really make a difference in which spot it goes in? I'm assuming it doesn't but I can see how it does? I never did get around to switching the place where the sensor was since it came with everything to plug the hole in the CAI. If someone has pictures of the V2 with the sensor IN the CAI, please post the picture(s). That'd be appreciated.

i heard that after you install any intake, you have to reset the ECU. I installed an aem cai and have yet to reset it. might be newb question, but how do you reset it? what do you unplug? I know unplugging the battery will not reset it.
