Air Intake

Is this any good?
03 07 Accord 3 0L V6 Weapon R Dragon Air Intake System Cold RAM Kit II | eBay

I have a big hole in my stock intake and need something. Cheaper would be better, but I'd this any good or do yall have better recommendations in price range?

Don't know if it matters but it's a 2003 Accord v6 auto.

Don't be fooled by brand name intakes with the POSSIBLE exception of the AEM V2 but IDK. You can make your own that will perform as well as anything on the market. Just use hq silicone couplers and a decent filter. SRI CAI = No difference. Seriously, its just a tube. Aluminum heats up faster but also dissipates MUCH faster, plastic takes a little longer to heat up but becomes heat soaked and will remain that way longer.

Sorry bud but nothing in that post is right. Filter size is king, up to a limit of course. SRI and CAI make a huge difference on where your torque gets put in the band and how it revs and responds. Depending on where you are it actually can change the temperature, although that's really not the biggest factor. Tube length makes changes to the way it responds. Aluminum will heat up faster but also hold more heat than plastic. Plastic will insulate as where aluminum will actually conduct heat. It's very heard to get heat to conduct through plastic.

That said, make sure your filter matches your engine size. Usually some of the sizing limit will be helped by manufacturers simply not making filters too small for the intake tubing size (usually has some correlation to engine size) with large manufacturers. Good filters usually run $40+ by themselves, couplings a couple bucks, piping with the right bends isn't cheap, tbolt clamps, bracket to hold it in place, its about a hundred to do right.

Weapon R wouldn't be my first choice, but their price is the biggest deterrent.

To a daily driver especially an AT none of that makes a bit of difference. CAI and SRI on our accords have a negligible difference that is unnoticeable to the driver. We're talking 1-2hp. You are incorrect about the heat issue with these for the simple reason that alum intakes have much thinner walls and are less dense than plastic. Plastic is an insulator and alum is a conductor. There are many threads on these issues from many members who can not discern any differences either. I'm not 100% on the exact #'s but these (factory) top ends are only flowing around 300cfm and anything after that is worthless until the mani and components are upgraded. A 3" tube with any decent cone filter can more than handle that load.

... You're joking with me right?
Stick an filter on your tb
Stick a filter on a 3ft tube
There are definitely differences in sound, response, map fluctuations, and occasionally even IAT.
AT or manual really has no relevance as to how the engine works, except in exceptional cases (get it!)
Plastic is less dense than aluminum, not the other way around. A pound of aluminum will take up much less space than a pound of plastic.
You got the insulator part right, plastic insulates. So you've got to choose an oven mitt to put your hand in the oven with. Do you choose plastic or aluminum? Plastic seat belt parts or metal seat belt parts when you've left the car out in the sun?

As far as a hp difference, I actually never once said it gains you hp, I said it changes where in the powerband the power goes. To a lesser degree, but in the same way that adding an intake manifold spacer can shift your torque peak lower in rpm.

and eh. If we were average drivers with this as a DD, why are we here?
