Default ACURA UPGRADE: Would a COLD AIR INTAKE give me more sound during acceleration? ACURA CL-S

First off,, my car is a 2001 Acura CL-S, Im going to put on a cold air intake, i know it will get a little more horsepower, but will i get more sound too. I want a little more sound,, not one of those lawnmower sounding things,, but a nice deep roar, not too loud, how do i get that,, do i also need different mufflers on the back. What should i get? I dont want to spend a lot,, but i also dont want something cheap that wont last. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

yeah youll get more sound during acceleration. not to load depending on hard you push the motor and when you shift. i love to hear my engine roar so i take it up to redline and sometimes way into it =]. you dont reall have to change the muffler. but i like HKS high power exhaust though

I have a Comptech CAI and its not any louder when driving casually. Step on it and you'll notice a throatier sound from about 3000 to 5500rpm. I've heard other brands for our cars are a lot louder and may whistle.The Comptech is a little pricy but probably the best one on the market.Check out if you want more info.

Well, you can get a fart can exhaust that will give you that "farty roar" and the cold air intake you're bypassing the stock air system and resonator so you will definitely get more engine noise coming through. It's not going to make a V6 sound like an 8 cylinder if that was what you were expecting.

intake will just sound like a bunch of air being sucked. kind of like a whistle. it wont make it that much deeper. when you hear a deep engine, it means that it has a lot or horsepower or a big engine. as you gain hp, you engine will not have to work as hard and will be able to rev easier so you will get a deepere sound unlike anything. and dont get a muffler tip. if you have dual exhaust, upgrade that. it wont sound like a lawn mower cause youve got dual exhaust.
