Hi Spence and :welcome4: to the forum :top:

In a word, no...save your money.

If you want noise save for an Exhaust, proper noise and a definite HP gain.

All in my opinion ;)

Welcome! As above if you get an induction prepare to have to get a flashpro as well. Sometimes not always (I've heard) that the induction can induce a hesitation with the throttle. Did for me and many other so it came straight back off

Have to say i disagree with the others. I purchased a civic type r 2009 about 2 months ago. I wanted a better sound so i purchased a milltek non res exhaust which made it sound good, but i wanted a 'beefier' sound. So a few weeks after the exhaust i purchased a HKS racing suction kit which makes it sound much better especially when the car is in VTEC.
I can't comment on performance gain. However, i do agree with warwick that there is a little throttle hesitation when at v.low revs, but its not a massive problem IMHO.

+1 for the hks rsk. But I also had a toda power exhaust which both together sounded amazing!! If the choice is one or other then defo the exhaust first. To see any gains with the induction kit then a flashpro will be needed!!
