Default AEM Cold Air Intakes?

AEM COLD AIR INTAKE 98-02 HONDA ACCORD V6 AEM V2 COLD AIR INTAKE 98-02 HONDA ACCORD V6 I wanted to know which is better?...I have a Hona Accord v6 with 139,000 Miles. Is it worth buying an Intake, car runs perfect, installed a new starter recently. The difference in price is about $75-100. The V2 is Titanium. Is it worth spending extra $100 or are the both the same? The regular one is steel (AEM COLD AIR INTAKE) Which Intake will make more noise? I ask this becuase I read the the V2's are quiter. Please Help =]Thanks for Your Time =]

save your money and make one yourself from mandrel bent tubing at your local exhaust shop. if you want the name brand part, go with the V2 it is worth the extra cash.

In my opinion and experience I prefer the short ram intakes over cold air intakes. Cold air intakes especially if you live somewhere where you get a lot of rain and snow can suck up water and cause you problems. difference in price is cheaper to go with short ram intakes and difference in power/fuel efficiency is negligible. AEM is a good brand also consider Injen and the passwordjdm.com intakes. Also very good reliable and proven. Noise difference off of an intake is very little except higher RPM's and if you have exhaust or headers.

V2 is better, but you'll see improvements with both systems.

i wouldnt worry about it sucking up water. Your intake isnt going to suck up water while driving unless its pretty much completely submerged in water. Air is much lighter than the water so it will always draw in air when given the chance

I say go with the v2 since i own one myself. I use to have a AEM short ram in my civic but switched to the v2 cold air and felt a little more power out of it and my short ram was louder. Dont worry to much about water getting sucked in because the intake is right behind the bumper and under it should have a plastic part under so its pretty hard to get water sucked up unless you leave the car in a puddle up to your car. If you also want to be on the safe side you can look for a filter guard to go over the filter to cut down the chance of water coming in.
