Default SRI for 04' RSX?

I recently got an 04' acura rsx base model and i was thinking of getting a short ram intake as my first engine upgrade. I was wondering if this would be a good idea for my first engine uprgade. Also i was wondering what brand would be best?

actually it is best to spend money first making sure the engine is properly tuned up. oil change, radiator fluid, check the hoses, spark plugs and belts before you do any modifications. this way you will be assured of a reliable machine. you wouldnt want to install taht SRI only to have your car blow its radiator hose and cause it to overheat and strand you in the middle of nowhere, right?after you have those done, an SRI is a pretty good first mod. AEM, FUJITA, K&N and INJEN all make intakes for your car. i would however lean towards AEM because they have this dry element filter that does not need oiling. the oil that you have you spray onto air filters sometimes can cause damage when it gets sucked in by the engine (due to over-oiling) this in turn destroys your MAF sensor, which is pretty darn expensive....

That is nothing, you are not getting any benefits of that with the rest stock. Do yourself a favor, save more money and change more items as a matched set. Just a piece of foam on a hole will not make a noticeable impact.1st rule of modifying and engine. Match your equipment. A fancy logo or a chrome piece does not boost performance.
