    The Unboxing

    That's true, didn't realize you went from 2.5" to 3" as well.. I'm sure that you've seen the dyno tests that RCautoworks has done with the PRL/skunk2/Acuity intakes? These tests were done on a stock intake manifold if I remember correctly, kinda makes you wonder why you aren't seeing a...

    Oh that makes more sense, 4whp is pretty good then! Shows that the Acuity outperforms the skunk2

    So you went from a catted rv6 and sk2 cai to a ktuned catless downpipe and acuity intake and only gained 4whp?

    The Unboxing

    I would of expected more gains from the downpipe but also the fact that it is catted might not have helped.. I had my car on the dyno with just a 3" catless downpipe and tuned by vit and was at 190whp/161wtq. I will be putting on the RBC manifold and this intake in a few weeks, can't wait!

    That was light snow thankfully, but with decent winter tires I haven't had any issues yet.

    Ordered the Acuity cold air intake, i'll probably wait a few months before installing it

    DIY RBC, ZDX, PRL Install Tips and Discussion

    I was more concerned about the 4 bolts from the TB lining up with the IM If the J35 TB has a wider opening, i'll have it port matched. Heard it might not do much but might as well do it while its out.

    DIY RBC, ZDX, PRL Install Tips and Discussion

    Thanks for the reply @procivic I believe I found a J35 throttle body from a Crosstour that has the MAP sensor on the top. Hopefully I can find a throttle body spacer and an intake that works with the J35 throttle body. I would like to go with the Acuity intake, just need to find out if I...

    DIY RBC, ZDX, PRL Install Tips and Discussion

    Thanks @webby I thought I would message Vit to see what he says : As long as the map sensor is post throttle plate on the TB your'e OK. So I have to use the J37 ZDX throttle body since it has the MAP sensor on the TB itself.

    DIY RBC, ZDX, PRL Install Tips and Discussion

    I bought a used RBC where they have welded shut the MAP sensor connector, I will be keeping the stock throttle body. What kind of problems would this cause if any?

    The Unboxing

    I'll be buying the intake in a few weeks and I would like to put a water resistant layer as well for peace of mind. I have used a Injen Hydro Shield before and never had any issues. Would you know the dimensions of the filter? I might be able to find one that would be the correct size.

    Glad to hear you like your rbc :thumbsup: You're right, back on topic! I can't wait to see dyno results!

    The Unboxing

    Yes I do agree that between 3500 and 6000 I might loose a bit of power but considering how rarely I will be in that range of RPM I still think it would be worth it.
  15. Gilles LeClair

    The Unboxing

    I don't plan on going turbo or supercharged anytime soon. I know you most likely talk from experience but i'll take the small power gain up high and lose a little down low in the RPM. If I see gains between 5800 and 7600 RPM then that is all i'm looking for. I currently have the stock intake so...

    Helps alot actually! I had my mind set on the PRL CAI for the longest time but recently heard alot of good things on this Acuity intake. I already have a 3" downpipe and catback, gathering a few more parts for the RBC and with this intake hopefully I will be around 215whp as well.

    Is the fitment as good as I've heard? @RujoKinJal

    Full Race Exhaust Rattle...

    I have a skunk2 dp and catback and also had alot of exhaust rattle. It was hitting at all the same spots as everyone mentions, the muffler and the heat shield bolts. The middle hanger near the resonator was sitting too close to the bottom of the car. Probably spent a good 4-5 hours trying to...

    Anyone install these eagle eyes before?

    Like @freggie said, you add something like this to the fuse box. I believe fuse 28 would power on when you turn on the car.
