Default What would happen if I add a aftermarket intake manifold to my 95 integra?

I have a 95 integra with dc headers and full exhaust and cold air intake. What would be the outcome if I add just an aftermarket intake manifold

1-3 hp increase. Yep, that's about it. Might also be losing some low end torque too.

Maybe your car will run a little bit better. Who knows? Everything will depend on the quality.

For the sake of comparison, I'll use the common single stage Skunk2/Blox intake manifold.

If this is on a GSR (b18c1) - you'd loose the near flat torque curve that was the result of a dual-stage intake system. You'll notice low end torque loss but will gain the potential for better top end - untuned, you'll feel dissapointed as you may have lost some power. VTEC engagement will be louder and feel stronger (but really, what you feel is the greater difference in low and high cam torque). Once tuned, your torque curve will be similar to the Type-R. Since the torque peak is moved up even further on the rev range, daily driving will take more effort. I've seen a gain of 4-5whp after retune with bolt-ons.

If this is on an LS/GS/RS (b18b) - you'll not notice much. Not exactly a worth while modification unless you plan to go boost. Even then, it's debatable until you're making some serious numbers.
