Default hi, i was wondering if i should just get headers and exhaust without intake?

the intake, Both kinds short or cold have really bad cons, and i was wondering if i should just get header and exhaust for performance gains. Also if you guys have any suggestions, what else could i also get to increase performance? i know my car already has a stock intake so thats why im here and there with the intake mod. I drive a 05 base acura rsx auto btw if that helps.

D is incorrect... there is countless dyno sheets uploaded out there, showing that the Cold and short intakes has gains over a baseline dyno. idy why there is still people who will argue to they are blue in the face. its proven, its fact, and they need to look at the facts, and STFU and stop giving false advise... yes, you can run the stock intake with header and exhaust, lots of people do do that, however, if thats the case, you might as well get a SRI (short ram intake), being as the stock airbox still has the conns of the heatsoak.. the sri will gain very minimal power, however it willl shorten the distance. SRI will show descent gain on dyno, however this is becasue hood is open allowing heat to escape engine bay. with hood closed. the sri still gains power, just not as much(if it shows 7hp gain on dyno, its more like a 3hp gain..,.

after intae/header/exhaust (or no intake, your choice) id suggest getting a tune. after that you would either want to start upgrading your fuel system, ie: injectors, fuel pump, fuel rail, or the rest of your air system(i guess this would depend on the current duty cycle of your injectors after tuned for I/H/E) the rest of your air system would be your throttle body, & intake manifold.

throw in a short shifter and descent tires for good measure, and you should be quite a bit quicker, most defintaly funner to drive...

(any time you change a mod that affects the airflow, or fuel flow, you should get the car tuned. tuning is probably the most important aspect of modding a car, yet so many people ride around untuned.
