    So since my 2013 si is my daily I don't want to play too much with the engine or with bolt on's but I hear the drop in filter from k&n gives a very nice VTEC cross-over noise, can someone confirm?

    Also note I have a 2013 si so this is before Honda did the exhaust upgrade

    The whole point of the drop in is not having to do a lot of work

    The resonator delete is not a lot of work...

    I was just adding a free suggestion in addition to the filter. It could prob be done in like 15 min or less.

    I don't even think i used tools to do this, maybe a screw driver for MAYBE 1 or 2 screws/clips but the pipe literally just pulls off if i remember correctly. It's a lot easier than having to learn how to drive stick shift which i know you've done seeing as you have an Si

    We all had to start somewhere... that's how you gain experience and learn how to work on your own car. Try it:)

    Does the res delete even make it sound better?

    I've heard some sound clips but it doesn't sound much different

    Bro my grandma rotates her own tires, thats the easiest step! Lol but in all seriousness this is a straight forward process and it does make it sound different a little bit but combined with the drop in filter and the res delete it will sound better

    There is a jack in your trunk to remove the wheel.

    ^What Webby said, but if you have a floor jack i'd recommend using that with a jack stand. Makes it easier on you and IMO i think it's safer
