Exhaust and Intake HP Question

[color=red][/color] alright guyz. can you tell me which Intake and exhausts are the best. I want the most reliable and the ones that add a lot of hp. i dont want to put down a lot of money for these 2 things but can you guyz give me different models and brands and tell me how much each one would cost. my friend's got an rsx-s and he's got 200hp. i wanna go beyond that. my stock gts only has 180hp right now. so anythin with more hp will help. thanks guyz.

TRD exhaust is probably the best performance exhaust which adds 14 hp. For standard exhaust runs ~$550. Extended is more but thats if you have a bodykit.
Injen or AEM are both the top of the line in Intakes which add ~3-5hp.
Go to the ecelica store for prices. Those are about as good as you can get.

do a search please. 180 HP GTS and a 200 HP RSX-S is BASIC knowledge everyone on this board should know or else they shouldn't be on the boards at all.

i think Intake and exhaust only give 9whp if you have a GTS. even TRD ex. i know TRD advertised their ex. at 14 hp but i think it says (in the fine print) "up to" 14 hp...and they are very careful not to specify what model car...they could've dyno'd 14hp with a tundra or something...but dynos show the TRD @ 5.8-6 something...if my TRD exhaust got me 14 horses i'd be doing this all the time eek grin eek grin eek grin eek grin eek

TRD performs, period. Don't talk shi* on the TRD exhaust because it performs better than the rest.

The TRD exhaust does give appx. 14HP at the flywheel. When you dyno your car at the wheels, you WILL have less than that somewhere around 6-10 is probably avg. I have the TRD and I absolutely love it. The sound only gets better with time, and the performance is definetly noticable over stock.

i have the HKS, and it doesn't give as much performance as the TRD, but IMO it looks a lot better and sounds better, but it gives good performance, but like 1 hp less than the TRD
