Real J's Racing or replica?

Ya password has the replica version but I doubt there will be any difference.

BTW, you are kidding about the sound, right?

Rob, do you also realize they run ITB with a built engine and possibly a straight pipe?

Just that intake alone won't give you any sound remotely close to what you hear in that video.

Even then, the J's racing is an intake pipe. Those M3s run CF intake plenum.

But if you want that CF intake, go for it.

Even with a CF intake, I don't think your stock CRX motor is going to Roar like a race car...lol.

I think in general, a SRI with nothing else will give off that high pitch sound as you rev higher. That's about it.

I agree with steveZ and charles. The c/f intake won't create a noise anywhere near that. It'll most likely sound like any other cai or sri.

those things are expensive (cf manifold) endyn has one and its like $1800 usd. those also need very high compression to work and they dont sound like that video either. those cars had a whine to them that reminded me of a sequential transmission.

Next time a Star Mazda race is on TV or if you get to see them live @Mosport you hear it. They ALMOST drown out the sound of the engine.

Same with the Hewland 5spds that they use in the SCCA Trans-Am cars.
