Default Cold Air Induction System ??

I have an otherwise stock 2000 Honda Accord 4 cylinder. I've started driving
it more aggressively lately and am seeking a little more punch without going
to internal mods, at least for the present.

Has anyone had experience with the AEM Cold Air Induction Systems on this
particular engine? If so, were the gains truly noticeable and at what rpm
range? Was it necessary to reset the ECU to achieve the gains?

How about installation ease? I'm not afraid to move things around, but
really don't want to rearrange my entire engine bay.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Jack

My GSR's gains were pleasantly noticable from low end on up.I did reset the
ECU,but did that before a test drive,so I can't speak to any change from
doing it.

I installed a $60 Bomz CAI (off Ebay)on my 94 Integra GSR,and the low-end
increase WAS very noticeable.You have to remove the resonator and original
filter plenum,as the tubing goes thru a hole in the r.front fender,to get
to cold air.It's not as bad as it sounds,and worth it. But you will get a
increase in noise,too,a growl when you get on the throttle,towards the
upper RPM ranges.You may want to get the optional relief valve to prevent
sucking up water if you drive through a deep puddle(like 5-6 inches),or you
could wreck your motor from hydrolock.(water does NOT compress,so things
bend or break,like conn rods))

It's much more pleasant to drive,quite a bit more "zippy".
IMO,one of the cheapest,easiest,and best ways to get a bit more power from
your motor.
