i was reading the "power pages " of import tuner (cuz quite frankly the grassroots, car and driver, and moter trend copies were taken...dammit) and i found a RSX-S dyno'd with a K and N Intake
DC header and Greddy exhaust.
it's base line dyno was 176whp...with the Intake
it gained 10whp. with the exhaust it gained 2.3 whp...and once they slapped the header in it gained 2 whp. with all the mods in it was able to squeeze out at 191+whp. the gains seemed to be about consistent to what a 2ZZ would get from these mods.
i just posted because it seemed quite interesting that there was such an uproar with the DC header giving out only 2whp when it seems that even on the mod friendly RSX-S it gained about the same.
on another note...people would spend 500 dollars on a TRD
exhaust for 5whp but would cry about 220 dollars for a header that gains 10whp from stock or 2 whp with I/E?
