so then why do you want a louder filter? so that it sounds faster then it really is?

well when it was time clean my filter....

what did I do instead?

look around for a 94-01 integra OEM air box, in my case a 96 LS Air box,

figured out some way to make it fit (meanin chopin a small piece of the short ram)

and the end result was a not so loud intake and something of a DIY COmptech ice box

the hissing noise you hear is usually associated with a generic CAI on a Z6 motor.

if you want a loud filter, get your hands on the Blitz metal mesh filter. i think it's over 150bux for the filter, but it's the loudest thing i've ever heard....

im pretty sure the SRI isnt gonna give u a noticable boost in HP. 90% of the times if you think your cars faster its just that. Your THINKING your car is faster.

Jus like when i put my front upper strut bar on my bone stock civic i thought it was a handling machine. Basically the whole point of a filter is noise, just like with an exhaust.

Get a K&N filter ive heard that on an SRI and it sounds nice.
