    It goes down right into behind the fog light.

    The Intake is effectively pulling temps right above ambient.. anywhere from 2-5F over ambient during WOT.
    The intake DEFINITELY made the motor sound AMAZING.. it added a DEEP sound at WOT without affecting regular driving. I also noticed increased throttle response.

    After Hi-Temp coating..

    The downpipe added some rasp at certain RPMs and on cold starts, but overall I would recommend this to anyone. It's also known to be the biggest bang for the buck on the K24. Adding over 10WHP before a tune.

    just awesome.

    I can't wait for the dyno numbers. Guys at heeltoe are great. I've bought a few things from them before for the TL.

    My RV6 True Dual Exhaust + HPFC + Jpipe should be here mid May. I am pretty damn excited.

    Thanks. VitViper is on the 5th revision of my tune and we haven't even started on logging pulls into VTEC. You can tell the car really likes to breathe, so much deeper at WOT now.

    RV6 makes some real quality parts.. the stainless steel was so pretty and I wouldn't of changed it but the coating will help with heatsoak, and keep the exhaust heat away from the motor. I considered going 3" all the way but it's a bit too loud and only gains about 5WHP over 2.5" piping. The 2.5" also fits better, lower risk of scraping or snagging on the ground and it's quieter.

    The CT-E beta tester had a 2.5" exhaust set-up and he made 270whp/240wtq on the 3.6" pulley (Stage 1) and 340whp/260wtq on the 3.15" pulley (Stage 2). I have the injectors for Stage 2 but I am going to run Stage 1 until my car is completely paid for and I get an aftercooler setup.

    Next step is suspension but I am trying to space it out a bit, that way I can enjoy each of my mods, respectively.

    * I also got quoted for the LSD installation which is $1600 including parts and labor. That's for a Civic Si direct LSD swap.

    I will be doing everything within my tool-means. I tried to do the DP but I didn't have the extenders to get to it properly, I paid my friends shop $75 to install it. Everything else outside of tuning is and will be all me; well minus the LSD.. I don't know the first thing about installing a diff.

    nice to see a build like this. I'm pretty sure after your success many will follow with this set up. Are you running bigger injectorss and a different fuel pump?

    Not sure what type of supercharger it is but Im guessing its a roots/scroll type like on the kit previously for the k24 on the tsx. For any scroll type you can expect a whine type sound throughout the rev band getting louder as you move upwards i the revs. and a centrifugal barely makes any sound except for at idle.

    WOT means wode open throttle.

    I am going to be running 750cc injectors with the stock fuel pump, right around 7lbs of boost..

    I had an 03 Cobra which had an Eaton (roots-style) blower and it's whine was AMAZING! I really wanted the SC for the sound as much as the power.. The K24 CT-E kit IS also an Eaton charger, so there will be whine!

    And, yep! WOT means wide open throttle.


    Thanks guys, hope to get some videos up soon.
