Default If I take out the stock COTTON air filter and put a RUBBER K&N air filter will it make the...

...noise of a custom? I have a 93 Honda Accord LX Sedan, recently got my car back from my mechanic, because I did a H22 swap. I noticed the day I got it back the black box that fits the cotton air filter wasn't in there and it was just the intake tube and it sounded great, just like a custom intake. Now say if I take out the Cotton filter and get a K&N filter to replace it inside the box will it make that same noise as if it were a Custom intake?

Generally K&N filters do make a little loader, throatier noise, I like them. What happened to the old filter? I would be pretty upset if I got my car back and they forgot to reinstall it, letting unfiltered air into the intake can cause damage.

just install a cold air intake. no air box will reproduce the sound of it. and if you have the money for an H22 swap, you should be able to afford a $200 CAI.
