Intakes and what makes them sound louder then the next 1

I just did my first mod. I put a Injen Short Ram in my 2000 gt. Everything else is stock and im not impressed, I feel like i wasted 300 bucks, my stock air box almost sounds louder. Any 1 KNow why???????????????

thanks

The longer the Intake tube, the louder the Intake noise. That's why SOHC civics sound so loud but don't go anywhere. I can't believe i know that.

I've noticed a big difference on my '03 GT auto, I got the same thing, Injen SRAI, you do have to take in to consideration that when your engine is idle it won't make any moise b/c it's not sucking in any air. You will only hear the Intake above around 3 or 4 thousand RPM's

the more gas you give it the louder it will get, also try and get a new exhaust thumbsup
