Doh!!!!....I think the mod bug may have bitten me!

I'm no stranger to modding a car. On my '01 Prelude I had the following....
OEM bodykit, AEM CAI, AEM pulleys, Mugen header and exhaust ($$$), and a tuned VAFC. On my '02 Maxima.....Frankencar intake, Stillen rear sway, H&R Springs, KYB struts, SSR Compeition wheels. Now my Accord was SUPPOSED to be different. I told myself that I'm gonna keep it relatively stock. So I ordered the OEM spoiler for it. Reasonable I told myself. Next, I set up an appt to have the windows tinted. Thats for longevity of the interior I told myself. I bought and put in a K&N drop in filter. That was ofcourse for less maintenance and increased MPG. Now I'm wanting to buy the AEM V2 and the hyperground kit. I'm also entertaining thoughts of the HFP suspension. I've been bitten my the mod bug again! A couple of questions to those with mods though....

*Does the AEM V2 drone at all on the highway? I'm leaving the exhaust stock, just want to change the intake.
*Since the 6spd has a quasi-CAI already, would the AEM V2 really help?

intakes usually dont drone. yes, the v2 would be better than the stock intake.

Thanks. I guess I need to find an AV6'er around here or at a meet that has a V2 and judge firsthand.

I'll try and be exhibit B if I can get to the track again this year

The V2 definitely helps- it's no different than stock noise wise until you get on it (especially in VTEC) and doesn't drone at all. I love it.

Oh and it definitely helps power-wise.
