    I am back! It has been awhile and after a little bit of trouble with the local authorities I decided to get out of the game. Well, I have been away for atleast a year now and I bought a new to me car. I used to have a 90 accord 4 door auto-tragic. My side project was a 88 CRX SI, I sold that and now I have a 2001 accord 4-door Manual tranny. I am about to start modififying it. I am of course starting with an intake system. My concern is this, I do not want my car to be very loud at all if I can help it. I do miss having a little noise though. So my question to you is with an AEM short ram intake how much more noise will my car produce?

    It will be loud if your car has VTEC if not it shouldn't be too loud. But like I said if it does when it hits VTEC it gets pretty throaty (is that a word?)

    My car does have vtec and I was thinking that it would be loud to at the vtec crossover point. What about at low rpms though? Do you think it would still be loud then?

    Single-cam VTEC is anything but loud. I'll give you a cookie if you can even tell when VTEC hits in a F22B1/F23A1.

    The only extra noise an intake will produce is that caused by removing the intake silencing mechanisms.

    EDIT: VTEC occurs at about 2800rpm on single-cam engines. VTEC exists solely for fuel economy in single-cam engines.

    If you're worried about noise, don't mod.

    I am not that concerned about noise. I just don't want my car to be extremely loud right now. Anyone that lives in Henrico county knows what I am talking about. In another year I will not live here and then I will go turbo.
